“What are your pronouns?” is the new “are you a man or a woman?”
Who gets asked for pronouns more than anyone else? Gender non-conforming women.
The new gender rules command we constantly challenge the femaleness of butch and andro lesbians.
This is an anti-gay movement.

Time for another look at Mayor Pete making news:
This is the “like Obama, for worse,” part:
Often adults who support transitioning kids and young people are incredibly homophobic. Often the kids suffer from internalised homophobia. We need to square up to this & openly support SAME-SEX attraction, not hide it behind a zillion genders & a ton of rainbow-coloured woowoo. https://t.co/eHExfZFaOV

My daughter was only a year older than this when she wanted to transition. We never referred to her as a boy. She’s now a young adult & a happy lesbian who says her younger self would have jumped at the chance to take T if we had enabled it. https://t.co/WDYuQZ3tzV

I absolutely think the child transition movement is being driven by parents who won’t accept homosexuality or gender non-conformity.

"Dempsey, who is now eight, would gravitate towards dolls dresses and sparkly objects". And now mom gets to wear a 'trans ally' T shirt! Without sexist stereotypes there can be no transgender child. https://t.co/HUkU6TWZRC pic.twitter.com/QxE6T7WZB1

As above, many parents who want to transition their gender nonconforming children seem not so much homophobic as trans-enraptured.
The result, however, is the same—transitioning gender nonconforming children is the ultimate conversion therapy, but supported by progressives because “woke.”
From the comments, Jackson writes:
Ironic, isn’t it. The LGBTQ activists embrace the idea that if a 7-year-old boy likes to play with dolls and make-up he should be told he’s a girl and given chemicals so he doesn’t develop into a man. What could be a more reactionary approach to gender roles? Whereas an arch conservative is left to call this out as destructive nonsense.
He adds that:
The LGBTQ movement, with its embrace of spoils system identity politics and academic queer theory, has become progressively anti religious freedom, anti free speech [as well as] anti gay.
Others helpfully comment that one must never, ever, EVER challenge the views of the alphabet people.

More toddlers declared transgender by their parents for not abiding by gender stereotypes.
I think Brad captures this history well:
After the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide in the landmark 2015 decision Obergefell v. Hodges, many believed the fight for gay rights would begin to wind down. Yet that didn’t happen. Instead, the LGBT-advocacy sector simply redirected its available staff, fundraising and rhetoric to other projects. …In a relatively short period of time, the gay-rights movement fused with more radical campus-based gender and identity-politics movements, to become the compound movement now known as “LGBTQ+”—lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, “queer” and more. Even many people within the movement now have trouble keeping up with all the new subcategories contained within that plus sign. …
None of these bizarre neologisms have any resonance to those of us who joined the gay-rights movement simply to affirm and protect the basic rights of people to be who they are and love who they choose without stigma or legal sanction. We’ve been forced to watch the simple moral logic of non-discrimination be transformed into a self-parodic alphabet soup of invented identities.
And worth repeating:
Update: Video at https://savejames.com/: “Mommy says I’m a girl.”
Horrying update on the James Younger, 7yr transgender boy story.
Look at this video where James says his mom put dresses on him, paints his nails, and *TELLS* him he’s a girl.

“I’m looking out for the best interests of James, my son. When James is with me, he shows no signs of wanting to be a girl when given the choice. Even when in female company, away from me, James rejects a female gender expression.”
Update: Judge Kim Cooks has now given Jeff Younger a say in his seven-year-old son James’s gender-transition process, but she has also placed a gag order on the father, forbidding him from discussing the case further. What’s troubling is that earlier this year, the same judge prevented Jeff Younger from getting a second opinion from an independent psychologist or psychiatrist on whether James has gender dysphoria.

LGBTQ activists and media now fully support the view that a boy who likes dolls and otherwise doesn’t conform to masculine stereotypes should be told he’s a girl and put on the road to gender transitioning.

Oh, no. 😱 My 3-year-old son played with some toy makeup, brushes, and nail polish today! You know what that means??!
It means he's a kid.

Woke parents prefer transitioning their children if they don’t reflect gender stereotypes. Who will stand up and protect gay kids?
From what we’re told, he sounds more like an effeminate gay boy, to be chemically castrated at age 7 (at his mother’s request, over the strong objections of his father). Is this America or Iran? It’s the woke LGBTQ activists who “don’t give a damn about this child.”
He is seven. He should not be chemically castrated any more than he should be married off or promised into the priesthood. Children can't give informed consent, nor should they have lasting choices decided when they're in second grade.

Where did Georgulas get the idea that her son was “really” her daughter? According to The Texan, the mother said her son liked the movie Frozen and asked to get a “girl toy” from McDonald’s. She also claimed he expressing a desire to wear girl’s clothing.
[Jeffrey] Younger claims that Georgulas had started putting James in dresses and painting his nails when he was three years old. The father also claims his ex-wife locked James in his room and told him that “the monsters only eat boys.” He claims that Georgulas would withhold affection from James if he did not act like a girl.
