In a now viral video posted to Tik Tok, a father in California claims that a paediatrician asked his 3-year-old son what gender he believed he was during a routine checkup.
“So my wife and I are waiting in the room with our son and the doctor comes in, and he sees my son sitting there at the table and the first question that he asks him is, ‘are you a boy or are you a girl?’” the father claimed.
The dad continued, “So luckily my son understands obvious tenets of biology at 3 years old and says that he’s a boy, just like his chart says.”
“The rest of the appointment I couldn’t even focus because I’m wondering why in the world this guy is asking the question. And then I remembered, ‘oh yeah, I live in California,’” the man added.
He then cited a case in Ohio where “a couple lost custody of their teenager for refusing them hormone treatment,” he said, sharing an article headline from the Washington Times that read “Religious parents lose custody of transgender teen for refusing hormone treatment.”
