Family First Comment: “(Social workers) are accusing Peter and Kate of ‘emotional abuse’ and ‘homophobic’ behaviour and putting them under extraordinary pressure to call their daughter ‘Mark’ as a first step towards changing her gender. The Wilsons, who believe their daughter is far too young to make such a momentous decision, fear that if they don’t toe the social services line she will be taken into care. ‘Can you understand how we feel as parents?’ asks Peter.
Little less than a year ago, Peter and Kate Wilson’s 14-year-old daughter was a sweet-faced, happy-go-lucky child, whose only ambition in life was to be a doctor.
She enjoyed games of tennis with her dad, surfing in the sea near her childhood home and sharing in the charity work this decent, Christian family believe to be part of their duty.
In short, the girl we shall call Melissa (all names have been changed) was a rounded, well-mannered girl who’d never given her parents a day’s trouble in her life.
Fast forward 11 months: Melissa is surly, rude, self-harms, threatens suicide and is being monitored by social workers, who insist that her sudden change in behaviour can be attributed to one extraordinary fact.
Melissa, they insist, wants to be a boy.
Not only that, but they are accusing Peter and Kate of ‘emotional abuse’ and ‘homophobic’ behaviour and putting them under extraordinary pressure to call their daughter ‘Mark’ as a first step towards changing her gender.
