“Just threaten suicide”

Via Arty Morty, meet “gender therapist” Wallace Wong:

Last month [i.e. March 2019], Justice Gregory Bowden of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ruled that a 14-year-old girl may begin receiving testosterone injections without parental consent. Bowden’s ruling, hailed as a “massive legal win” by the American LGBTQNation, ensured treatment would proceed without parental influence by declaring that if either of the girl’s parents refer to their daughter as a girl, they will be considered guilty of family violence under the Canadian Family Law Act.

If their daughter decides she’s a giraffe but her parents refer to her as a human will they be considered guilty of family violence under the Canadian Family Law Act? How many magical categories can be forced on parents by the Canadian Family Law Act?

The father was seeking a reversal of Bowden’s decision in the BC Court of Appeal.

“[These injections] will completely disrupt her puberty,” he said. “Her bones will stop growing, her brain will stop developing… and she’s not gonna be a boy. She won’t even have the bone-strength left to be a girl anymore.”

The father was still trying to get a court date.

Last Monday, however, new information surfaced that may favor Clark’s chances before the bench. Dr. Wallace Wong, the psychologist who labeled Maxine [not her real name] transgender, is facing calls for an inquiry into the conduct of his practice.

On February 28 [2019, the day after Bowden’s decision was released, Wong spoke at an event hosted by Vancouver Public Library. In a tape of the event obtained by Canadian pro-family group Culture Guard, Wong is heard proudly describing the scope of his children-only “gender therapy” practice, noting that his youngest client is not yet three years old and that he has 501 orphans and foster kids in his local practice.

Wong burbled about the soaring “need” for his “gender therapy,” but he was creating the “need” himself by diagnosing children as gender-broken.

Wong actually said aloud, at this library talk, that the way to get “gender therapy” fast without any pesky questions or delay was to threaten suicide.

“So what you need is, you know what? Pull a stunt. Suicide, every time, [then] they will give you what you need,” Wong said, adding that gender-dysphoric kids “learn that. They learn it very fast.”

These words take on a particular significance for Maxine’s case, in which Bowden relied heavily on the opinion of Wong and his colleagues that “continued delay in hormone treatment” was placing Maxine “at risk of suicide.” In fact, Bowden references Wong as claiming that Maxine had already experienced a suicide attempt “linked to [her] gender dysphoria.”

So Wong tricked the judge and then bragged about it in a talk at a big urban library. Clever.

I think this is the same case as the one involving the non-compliant father who was sent to jail just a few weeks ago.
