Trans teen removed from parents' custody after they refused consent to transition
A transgender teenager has been removed from their parents' custody over their apparent refusal to consent to a gender transition.
The teen, whose family migrated to Australia 10 years ago, was born female and wants to start hormone treatment to medically transition into a boy.
In what is believed to be a legal first in the country, the judge ruled that on the balance of probabilities, the teen had suffered verbal abuse "related to his feelings and expression of gender identity", The Australian reports....
Women are to dress modestly, as Paul stated in his epistle to Timothy. As for Deuteronomy 22, IF one insists it pertains to this present day, then go back one chapter, "18If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: 19Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; 20And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. 21And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and đ all Israel đ shall hear, and fear". Pay attention to who was being addressed, all Israel. The laws in Deuteronomy were specifically for the nation Israel. The NT lays out the guidelines for believers, like dressing modestly, and fleeing sexual immorality, etc. Pulling verses out of context for whatever reason is never wise. The only garment acceptable to God is the robe of righteousness, imputed freely to the elect at no cost to them.đâ¤ď¸ Better not mix your fabric

And thank you for your additional thoughts. I read back through some of your comments and you need to comment more often.

Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. Regardless of what medical procedures this young lady undergoes, she will never be able to father a child and she will never be able to participate in sports with men. IOW, she will never be a man. What an incredibly evil world we live in.

"Children under 16 with gender dysphoria are unlikely to be able to give informed consent to undergo treatment with puberty-blocking drugs, three High Court judges have ruled.
The case was brought against Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, which said it was "disappointed" but immediately suspended such referrals for under-16s.
The NHS said it "welcomed the clarity" the ruling would bring.
One of the claimants, Keira Bell, said she was "delighted" by the judgment.
Ms Bell, 23, from Cambridge, had been referred to the Tavistock Centre, which runs the UK's only gender-identity development service (GIDS), as a teenager and was prescribed puberty blockers aged 16.
She argued the clinic should have challenged her more over her decision to transition to a male as a teenager."
Dame Victoria Sharp, sitting with Lord Justice Lewis and Mrs Justice Lieven, said: "It is highly unlikely that a child aged 13 or under would be competent to give consent to the administration of puberty blockers.
"It is doubtful that a child aged 14 or 15 could understand and weigh the long-term risks and consequences of the administration of puberty blockers."
No one can change genders, regardless. Who does Deut. 22 pertain to? These were laws for the nation Israel, context is key in understanding the bible. Here's an even greater abomination than how one dresses, 'And one of the seven angels having the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, âCome here, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, the one sitting upon many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and those dwelling on the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her sexual immorality.â And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet beast being full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stone and pearls, holding a golden cup in her hand, being full of abominations and the impurity of her sexual immorality. And upon her forehead a name was written, a mystery: BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE PROSTITUTES, AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.- Rev. 17. FALSE RELIGION, which is 'Babylon the great' is the worst abomination, it breeds spiritual harlotry, whoredom.
