In a deeply unsettling revelation, a couple has come forward to share their harrowing experience after discovering that their autistic teenage daughter was undergoing a social transition at her school without their knowledge. Here’s the full story.
The Horrific Discovery
The parents expressed their distress at being kept in the dark about their daughter’s use of sex hormones, a decision they were unaware of and had not consented to.
They’d Previously Shared Their Disapproval
According to the parents, they had previously met with the head teacher of their daughter’s secondary school in southeast England, clearly stating their disagreement with their daughter being referred to by a boy’s name or male pronouns in class.
They Found Out
However, they were shocked to learn that certain teachers had been using a boy’s name to address their 16-year-old daughter.
They Legally Checked School Records
Alarmed by this discovery, the parents sought legal assistance to gain access to the school’s records.
Their Daughter Had Undergone Treatment
To their astonishment, they found evidence that some staff members were aware that their daughter was undergoing cross-sex hormone treatment to masculinize her body and was using a chest binder to flatten her breasts.
They Found Evidence
The teenager had also received guidance on gender identity from a youth project associated with the school.
The Father Shared His Concern
Expressing his concerns, the father stated, “This is a safeguarding issue. We feel our daughter’s mental and physical health is being put at risk.
We have been shut out from any discussion.
No Social Transition at School
When we met the headteacher, we agreed there would be no social transition at school. Some teachers disregarded that. We feel we are living in a Franz Kafka novel.”
The School’s Job Is to Protect Children
Furthermore, the father said, “The institutions have put us in an impossible situation. We have only ever sought to act in the best interests of our daughter.
Life-Changing Medicalization With Irreversible Consequences
We believe that some of the professionals whose job it is to safeguard children may have acted in her worst interests by enabling, encouraging, and facilitating life-changing medicalization with irreversible consequences.”
The School Denied Allegations
In response to these allegations, the school denied any failure in its safeguarding responsibilities and emphasized the pupil’s right to privacy regarding her medical information.
The School Claimed to Be Complying With the Parents’ Wishes
The school stated that reminders were issued to staff explicitly instructing them not to use the pupil’s preferred name.
However, the parents remain deeply concerned about their daughter’s well-being and the lack of transparency surrounding her social transition.
Restricting Medical Information From Parents
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “This is what I’ve been saying. So children can consent to transition and in Finland, as young as 10 years old can restrict their medical information from parents. But if something goes wrong, guess who’s to blame? This is sick.”
Another user added, “This is horrific. Teachers are not experts and will never suffer the consequences of the decisions they may make.”
