Nearly 50% of Millennials Fine with Feds Taking Kids from Parents Who Don't Support Transitioning

Taking "in loco parentis" to a new level.

Here's the question posed to young Americans: should the government “remove children from homes where the parents refuse to provide resources for gender transition?” (Don't sneer at this question. The Canadian government can do just that.) The question didn't include an age restriction for the kids. Want to hear the results of the poll? You may want to sit down for this:

Fully 18 percent of the 1,402 respondents answered yes; another 27 percent said they were unsure. Among female respondents, a majority stated that children should either be removed from the home (21 percent), or they were unsure (33 percent). A whopping 60 percent of Clinton voters felt the same way; just seven percent of those who voted for Trump said yes, and 15 percent said they were unsure. Among self-described liberals, 47 percent said they were either in favor of government removal (10 percent) or unsure about it (37 percent).

In other words, almost half of all millennials were "open" to the government forcibly intervening "in a family if parents refuse to cater to the transgender notions of their children."  

Just think for one moment how this could be abused. Many kids, at some point or another, have less-than-ideal relationships with their mom and dad. Any time parents restrict their kids' liberty -- be it curfew or dietary -- it could cause a rift. If kids are armed with the knowledge that they can "liberate" themselves through government force from their way-too-traditional parents, why wouldn't they?

Though liberals say they don't want to push this legislation, libs love big government like an addict likes the pipe. If liberals believe they can push this type of legislation through, they will. Regrettably, according to this poll, it looks like all they have to do is wait a few years.
