'My Child Is a Girl': Chicago Mom Tearfully Tells Story of Losing Custody of Teen Daughter for Denying She's Trans

TrĂ© Goins-Phillips : Aug 1, 2022  Faithwire.com

"They want me to have a certain understanding that there is such a thing as a child who is born transgender and this is who they are. I don't believe that. My child is a girl. I won't lie to her or anyone else. I think that's good parenting."

Since 2019, Jeannette Cooper's then-12-year-old daughter Sophia has identified as a transgender male—a decision she announced when she arrived at her father's house, unbeknownst to her mother.

"They want me to have a certain understanding that there is such a thing as a child who is born transgender and this is who they are," Cooper continued. "I don't believe that. My child is a girl. I won't lie to her or anyone else. I think that's good parenting." (Screengrab image)

Cooper—who identifies as a "radical feminist" and has voted for Democrats since she was 18 years old—is rejecting the left's view that a child can be transgender and that affirming his or her identity is the only correct action for a parent to take.

"It is unfortunate that we are teaching children that a word will cause them to commit suicide," she said. "That is not how suicide works. We know that children who are depressed, anxious, autistic, have a history of childhood trauma are more likely to kill themselves, are more likely to..."
