Who decides the sex of your child? Biology? Not anymore, if some people have their way. Did you know that there is a growing movement to give the choice of personal gender to children without input or prior consent from their parents? Check out these 2 quotes. The first quote from The American Mind:
A few minutes later, the doctor slinked out and waved goodbye without a word. On the way to the car, the boy told me what happened. “She talked to me about drugs and alcohol. And she told me when I have sex to use a condom.”
And finally, the kicker: “Then she asked me if I was comfortable with my gender.”
He thought the gender question was absurd and funny. But he was outraged about the condom question. “Mom, she told me to use birth control. Until I’m twenty-five! I’d be committing a mortal sin.” He’s so good. I don’t deserve him. I got angrier and angrier as we drove home. Here was this doctor my son had seen in person a total of five times in his life probing his most intimate secrets. Does the white coat magically melt away kids’ stranger danger and cause them to open up to middle-aged harridans holding clipboards? Guys, they really do want to separate you from your children and dictate their own agenda to them! It’s not just theoretical anymore. This time it’s personal.
I realized too late that I don’t know anything about our doctor, I don’t know her beliefs or her politics, because it never occurred to me that a pediatrician visit would become political.
Are you comfortable with doctors impressing their politics and ideas of gender reassignment on your 10-year old child? If so, then this next quote will not disturb you either. Its from The National Pulse’s article, “Biden’s HHS Pick Advocates Sex Changes For Kids.”
Most alarmingly, Dr. Levine has advocated for sex changes for pre-pubertal people, otherwise known as “children.”
A professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry at the Penn State College of Medicine, Levine has given lectures in various settings since at least 2012 on how to perform sex changes and gender conversion therapy on children.
According to Levine, children ought to be given the latitude to choose their own gender. Levine has advised adults to “try not to force them one way or other [sic]” and instead to follow the child’s lead.
I find this VERY concerning. In my view, gender reassignment surgery is an adult decision and not something a child should be making. Why? As they mature, they might regret the decision. Check out this quote from the Daily Mail:
‘Hundreds’ of transgender people who have transitioned want to un-do their surgery, a campaigner who decided to stop identifying as male has revealed. Charlie Evans, 28, from Newcastle, was born female but identified as male for almost ten years before deciding to identify as a woman again.
‘Hundreds’ of people have contacted her, including 30 in Newcastle alone, asking for guidance around detransitioning – the process of becoming the gender they were born – after she went public with her decision last year, she told Sky News.
‘I’m in communication with 19 and 20-year-olds who have had full gender reassignment surgery who wish they hadn’t, and their dysphoria hasn’t been relieved, they don’t feel better for it,’ Ms Evans said.
Medical ethicists tend to be against it as well. This is a quote from The NY Times:
Risky procedures, like gender transformation, require a greater depth of informed consent. Some pediatric ethicists argue that, based on our understanding of adolescent brain development, adolescents should never be asked to make independent decisions about life-altering medical treatments, such as refusal of life-sustaining treatment or participation in risky research.
General medical ethical principles for children and adolescents emphasize that the capacity for decision making increases, at different rates, with age, experience, cognitive development and emotional development. Ethicists often counsel that pediatricians and families should avoid making choices for children that they will be able to make for themselves as adults – such as genetic testing for adult onset conditions for which there is no ameliorating treatment available during childhood. So it would be inadvisable for parents to consent to gender transforming surgery a child wants, if the child does not have full decision making capacity.
What makes this issue so incendiary, I think, is that in many cases (not all) the very thought of children considering gender reassignment is not even their own. Indeed, some children have been victims to indoctrination efforts where an adult tells the child they are transgender until the child accepts it as truth and parrots the sentiments back to them. An example of this is in this video.
When I was researching how some people convince their kids that they are transgender (its a thing), I stumbled across a very fascinating article from The Daily Signal called – “I’m a Pediatrician. How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field and Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse.” The author starts off this long insightful piece like this:
Transgender politics have taken Americans by surprise, and caught some lawmakers off guard. Just a few short years ago, not many could have imagined a high-profile showdown over transgender men and women’s access to single-sex bathrooms in North Carolina. But transgender ideology is not just infecting our laws. It is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us—children—and with the apparent growing support of the professional medical community.
In the article, the author dropped several “truthbombs” that I had never heard before and I read a lot. These were a few of them:
Pediatric “gender clinics” are considered elite centers for affirming children who are distressed by their biological sex. This distressful condition, once dubbed gender identity disorder, was renamed “gender dysphoria” in 2013.
In 2014, there were 24 of these gender clinics, clustered chiefly along the east coast and in California. One year later, there were 40 across the nation.
With 215 pediatric residency programs now training future pediatricians in a transition-affirming protocol and treating gender-dysphoric children accordingly, gender clinics are bound to proliferate further.
(Indeed, they likely will since there is a financial benefit to the phenomenon.) The author then makes several bold statements supported by medical research studies that I would encourage you to read further. And they are:
- Twin studies prove no one is born “trapped in the body of the wrong sex.”
- Gender identity is malleable, especially in young children.
- Puberty blockers for gender dysphoria have not been proven safe.
- There are no cases in the scientific literature of gender-dysphoric children discontinuing blockers.
- Cross-sex hormones are associated with dangerous health risks.
- Neuroscience shows that adolescents lack the adult capacity needed for risk assessment.
- There is no proof that affirmation prevents suicide in children.
- Transition-affirming protocol has not solved the problem of transgender suicide.
The author concludes with, “Bottom Line: Transition-Affirming Protocol Is Child Abuse.” Wow.
Some states recognize the risks (or perhaps outraged parents who saw what was happening in Oregon persuaded them) and have made steps to criminalize sex change operations for minors. Kansas made steps to do that very thing earlier this month. And at least 6 states were already leaning that way last year.
Without a doubt, the debate will rage on with some arguing its okay and others, its not okay. If you ask me, no one under 21 should be making that decision. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it. What do you think?
- ‘You can’t undo surgery’: More parents of intersex babies are rejecting operations
- Sex-change treatment for kids on the rise
- Children are too young for sex change treatment, former transgender patient warns
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 11,000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
