Parents lose custody over a trans child for not allowing them to transition


An Ohio court ruled that the 17-year-old trans teen should not be survived by parents who don’t support their gender identity. The 17-year-old was diagnosed with depression, anxiety and gender dysphoria and the parents made it even worse because they forbade their child to get hormonal treatment. The teen contacted a crisis chat service and told them that his father had told him to kill himself because “he was going to hell anyway”.The teen’s grandparents accept his trans identity and he is going to live with them now. They also promised to help their grandchild with gender reassignment. The ruling comes after the teen was reportedly forced by his parents to undergo “Christian” therapy which included listening to Bible readings for over six hours at a time. The parents argued that this was not true and that the grandparents do not have their child’s “best interest” at heart.
