Hard Times & Strong People

It’s been said that hard times make strong people, strong people make good times, good times make weak people, and weak people make hard times. If you’re a parent trying to protect your kids from today’s toxic culture that seeks to victimize children at every turn, you may agree that we’re increasingly moving into hard times.

Therefore, the luxury of being weak people enjoying good times has come to an end.

At Advocates Protecting Children, we hear from droves of parents whose children have announced transgender identities. People purchase at least 4-5 copies of Desist, Detrans & Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult every single day, and have done so since its publication in April 2021. The number of families struggling to save their children is a growing tsunami.

Parents ask us, “How can we get our child back?”

We say, “Pull from public school, take away the smartphone, and cut off all social media. Those are the three main vectors for the gender virus.”

Almost to a person they respond, “We can’t do that. We can’t afford private school, we can’t homeschool because we both work, and when we tried to take away social media and the phone, our child threatened to run away. What can we do?”

While pulling from public school may feel like the nuclear option—and we understand that some families really can’t manage that option—cutting off social media and taking away the smartphone should be easy lifts.

Your children are not in charge; you are. Are you paying the cell bill? Then stop paying it. Are you providing the WiFi? Then disconnect your child’s device from the router. Is your child browsing transgender influencers’ videos when he’s at his buddy’s house? Then he doesn’t get to go to his buddy’s house anymore.

If your child threatens to run away, hide his shoes every night before you go to bed. It’s called “run-proofing.”

No, it’s not easy. Yes, your child will be angry. Getting a son or daughter back from the gender cult is painful, costly, time-consuming, and comes with no guarantees. It’s hard work you just have to do if you want to save your child. No one else will do it for you.

You can choose not to do the hard work. You can decide to wait and see instead of acting. You can tell yourself that the school isn’t that malevolent, that your kids are doing okay, and that you’re sure things aren’t as bad as they seem. But by doing so, you are prioritizing your own comfort over your child’s welfare.

By the time a child has announced that s/he is transgender, that child is neck-deep in the ideology. You're only witnessing the tip of the iceberg. This isn't a phase, and it won't go away on its own.

What will you say in ten years when your formerly transgender-identified child asks, “Why didn’t you stop me from doing this to my body? Why didn’t you protect me?”

Some people will say, “There was nothing I could do.”

Strong people will say, “I did every single thing I could.”
