(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) At a recent hearing, the Louisiana House Health and Welfare Committee heard testimonies from parents regarding a bill that would ban sex changes for children. One mother insisted that her daughter was a transgender boy because of her love of green vegetables.
The mother introduced her testimony by telling stories of her daughter as a baby; apparently she was a difficult child who often had trouble sleeping and constantly cried. As she got older, the daughter became fixated on raw green vegetables.
“We took him to specialists and neurologists trying to figure out why he couldn’t sleep,” the mother said, referring to her daughter.
“Then, as he grew, he got to sleeping but his food choices were odd they were always like… raw green vegetables,” she continued. “You know kids don’t like to eat those things.”
The mother arrived at the conclusion that her daughter must actually be a boy and the preoccupation with green vegetables was her way of crying out for a boost of testosterone.
According to the Post Millennial, insomnia and fascination with food textures are classic signs of autism.
State Rep. Gabe Firment proposed HB 463, also known as the Save Adolescents from Experimentation Act, in an effort to prohibit doctors from performing experimental “sex change” procedures on minors.
Another mother testified, telling the story of her daughter, now 11 years old, and how she knew she was actually a boy because she played with trucks and other “boy toys” at 18 months old.
The young girl is now on track for puberty suppression drugs.
“He shouldn’t be in a woman’s body, and honestly, I don’t think he could survive if we forced him into it,” said the mother.
Several other states attempted to pass similar legislation, with many places like Montana seeing more severe backlash against acts that, if passed, would protect children.
