Surge Summary: A town in Maine deserves plaudits for refusing to two the transgender line and keep parents shut out of their children’s lives. The sexual revolution thrives in ignorance … this town took a stand for openness.

by The Ruth Institute

“Paris, Maine, deserves the thanks of parents across the country,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “By voting to remove two school board members who were promoting the Sexual Revolution, the town has taken a stand for gender sanity.”

The recall vote, which passed 333 to 243, was sparked by a proposed policy, which not only would have allowed students to use restrooms and showers of the opposite sex, but also would have prohibited teachers from notifying parents of a student’s gender confusion.

Morse explained: “Teachers would have been forbidden to talk to parents about conversations with their children regarding so-called gender identity.”

“The Sexual Revolution thrives in ignorance. Whenever children are involved, the objective is to take parents out of the picture.”

“A school nurse needs parental consent to dispense aspirin, but teachers are prohibited from talking to families about gender confusion? This is nuts.”

“Rather than shielding children from trauma, encouraging ‘gender transitioning’ opens adolescents to a world of harm,” Morse said. “Most teens with gender dysphoria grow out of it by the time they reach adulthood. However, many who are encouraged to assume the identity of the opposite sex come forward years later to describe the physical and psychological harm involved in the process, especially when there’s surgery.”

An ex-Navy SEAL who lived as a woman for ten years and is now de-transitioning, said he was taken advantage of by medical professionals to his lasting regret.

Former “transgender” Chloe Cole testified at a Florida hearing that she identified as trans at age 12 and underwent a double mastectomy at 15. She said, “I was unknowingly physically cutting off my true self from my body, irreversibly and painfully.”

“How dare school officials try to keep parents in the dark when it comes to their children’s mental health?” Morse said. “Good for the voters of Paris, Maine, for standing up for families and children. Parents around the country, take note.”

The Ruth Institute’s Transgender Resource Center contains research and testimonials to help parents fight back against trans ideology.

The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization, leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.
