Canadian father jailed for using wrong pronouns on daughter who now identifies as male

The Attorney General of British Columbia issued an arrest warrant on Tuesday for Canadian father Robert Hoogland who called his biological daughter “she” and “her” instead of using the 14-year-old’s preferred pronouns, according to The Daily Wire.

According to the publication, the daughter, who was not named, began to receive testosterone injections without the consent of her parents. 

“The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence,” The Federalist reported.

Hoogland continued to refer to his child as a “daughter” and use the pronouns “she” and “her” and was later arrested for it.

The family has been in turmoil since the daughter was in seventh grade and was urged to see psychologist Dr. Wallace Wong who pushed her toward cross-sex hormone therapy at the age of 13. 

Hoogland stood against this advice and refused to give permission for his daughter to take the hormones, but the doctors at BC Children’s hospital decided to give her testosterone injections, without his consent, according to The Daily Wire. 

The concerning aspect of this for parents is that the father’s objection to the hormone therapy was based on his concern for possible negative side effects. However, he was informed by doctors that the girl’s consent was enough to begin the treatment. 

After attempting to seek an injunction to stop the treatment, Justice Gregory Bowdenruled stated in February of 2019 that the girl was “exclusively entitled to consent to medical treatment for gender dysphoria.”

The judge added that “Attempting to persuade (the girl) to abandon treatment for gender dysphoria; addressing (the girl) by his birth name; referring to (the girl) as a girl or with female pronouns whether to him directly or to third parties; shall be considered to be family violence …”
