A Finnish couple has lost custody of their 15-year-old daughter after they refused to allow her to undergo hormone therapy to “correct her gender”.
Two years ago, when the family had relocated from Finland to another country in the European Union, the teenage girl told her parents that she thought she was in the wrong body and demanded hormone therapy, Finnish broadcaster Yle reports.
“She was only fifteen years old, we couldn’t agree that she started using hormones,” said the mother.
After refusing to bow to their daughter’s demand, she became angry and just a few weeks later one of her friends contacted the police and filed a criminal report against the mother and the father. Shortly after, the government of the unnamed European Union country decided to take away the parent’s custody of the young girl.
“From having dressed very provocatively and feminine just a few months before, she had now started to use more masculine clothes just like the others in her new gang of friends,” the mother said.
“She said she wanted to start hormone therapy right away and later remove her breasts,” she added.
“Obviously, it felt bad that one’s own daughter was doing this, but the worst thing was that the authorities agreed. We were naive and thought that the doctors and the authorities would see sense. It was a big mistake,” the father told Yle.
The parents say their teenage daughter, who now identifies as a young man, rarely speaks to them.
After watching a video clip of their child after she had undergone six months of hormone therapy the father said, “Without over-dramatizing, you can say that when the voice, appearance, and personality change, it is as if they had killed our child.”
The number of kids looking to undergo gender reassignment treatment has exploded since the extremist, culturally Marxist media began pushing transgender ideology and marketing it specifically to kids a few years ago.
Referrals to the NHS transgender clinic in the UK have risen from 94 in 2010 to 2,519 by last year, with the youngest patient being just three-years-old.
In Finland, the transgender clinic at Tampere University Hospital has witnessed the number of cases involving young people quadruple in the past six years.
