Montana Parents Lose Custody of 14-Year-Old Daughter for Opposing Gender “Transition”

I guess this is a female-to-male tranny.

You can now only tell from the photos, if they are available. The New York Post, Fox News, and virtually every other “right-wing” publication respects pronouns, so it’s easy to get confused.

New York Post:

A Montana family claims they lost custody of their 14-year-old child after opposing her interest in changing genders — and while the governor’s office defended the move, it stressed to The Post that the state does not remove minors to provide gender transition services.

The state’s Child and Family Services (CFS) reportedly took custody of the teen from her father Todd Kolstad and stepmother Krista this month, leading the parents to speak out about how the action has “destroyed” their family and “trampled” their rights.

You don’t have any rights.

This is a democracy.

How do people not know that?

The allegations, first reported over the weekend, led Gov. Greg Gianforte’s office to take a look at the case and defend CFS workers.

The parents told Reduxx their issues with the state agency started when officials received a call in August 2023 that Jennifer, whose name was changed for publication at their request, expressed suicidal thoughts at school.

A CFS caseworker came to speak with the teen and inspect the house where Jennifer claimed she drank toilet bowl cleaner and took painkillers in an attempt to take her own life, the outlet reported.

Worst suicide attempt ever?

You have to take tranquilizers or sleeping pills to kill yourself, and toilet bowl cleaner… what? If you drank it every day, it might give you cancer, but it’s not toxic enough to kill you.

The teen reportedly showed no related symptoms, and a test at the hospital showed she didn’t consume any toxins.

But her hospital stay stretched to multiple days, in which staff there noted that Jennifer identified as male and wanted to be called Leo. The parents said they quickly, but unsuccessfully, objected.

We were very clear to the emergency room staff as well as [CFS] that this goes against our values, morals and our religious beliefs,” Krista Kolstad recalled to Reduxx, accusing the hospital of consistently undermining her and her husband’s authority.

Beyond that, she probably wasn’t even thinking that when she went in. This is just what mental health facilities do now. They take vulnerable young people, put them on various drugs, then convince them they want to “change gender.”

Jennifer was eventually moved to a specialized residential care facility in Wyoming over her parents’ concerns. Kolstad told Reduxx she and Todd were worried about Jennifer being cared for in the state, where minors can receive gender-affirming care without parental consent.

They showed up at our home to serve us with papers to take Jennifer out of our care,” Kolstad alleged. “They told me the reason was that we were ‘unable or refusing to provide medical care.’ That’s just not true.”

It actually is true.

Not making your kid a tranny is “refusing to provide medical care.”

It’s been this way for like three years now. I don’t know how parents aren’t aware of it. I guess it’s probably because they block it out, realizing if they accepted this reality, they would have to leave the country.

Jennifer later returned to a Montana youth facility in September, where she remains. Earlier this month, a court put the teen in the custody of CFS, Reduxx reported.

We were told that letting Jennifer transition and live as a boy was in her ‘therapeutic best interest’ and because we aren’t willing to follow that recommendation, the court gave CFS custody of Jennifer for six months,” Kolstad told the outlet.

This Twitter thread from the REPUBLICAN governor of MONTANA is the nuttiest thing I’ve ever seen.

We used to say “Republicans and Democrats agree about foreign wars and mass immigration (Republicans just want it to be LEGAL), they just argue about trannies.”

Now, they don’t even argue about trannies.

Both parties want to steal your kids from you, give them cancer drugs to sterilize them and mutilate their hormone systems, then mutilate their genitals.
