4-yr-old 'Charlie Danger' LloydAlaina Bourrel/Facebook

(LifeSiteNews) — At Vancouver’s Pride Parade on July 31, a preschooler walking with her grandmother fired a blue gender reveal cannon to announce that she would be transitioning to male.  


“Charlie Danger” Lloyd is a little girl from British Columbia, Canada. She is only four years old. Four-year-olds are not capable of understanding many things. If I subscribed to transgender ideology’s bifurcation of sex and gender — and I do not — I would still be entirely confident that a preschooler could not understand it. Preschoolers also do not have the self-awareness to declare that, based on their years of understanding and experience, they have been born into the wrong body. 

But it is 2022, and Lloyd’s mother confirmed her desire to be a boy. Lloyd — the preschooler — uses “he/him” pronouns (have you ever met a preschooler who knew what a pronoun was?) and was apparently thrilled to make the transition announcement at Pride (this was obviously Lloyd’s idea). According to Lloyd’s mother: 

Once they closed the road, Charlie strutted out with Grammy and they faced the sidelines and after a short struggle, the cannon exploded with blue smoke and biodegradable confetti. Charlie jumped with joy as the crowd cheered him on. He couldn’t believe the love and support he was shown from the bystanders.

Lloyd’s mother says the preschooler has wanted to be a boy since the age of two. She also says the gender cannon reveal at Vancouver Pride Parade was all Lloyd’s idea, and that the reason she and others knew Lloyd was a boy is that as a toddler she often said she wanted to look “just like daddy” and insisted she was a boy. “He wasn’t your typical little girl. He would play with other boys and the parents would say he was more of a boy than their own children,” she said.  

At preschool, staff and other preschoolers congratulated Lloyd when she shifted to he/him pronouns—the transition, says Lloyd’s mother, apparently began several months ago. The tipping point wasn’t just the playing with boys and the tomboy behavior, but the fact that she wanted her hair cut short.

He refused to shop in the girl’s section, but was too nervous to shop in the boys [sic]. After lots of expressing his feelings and emotions with me, he decided he wanted a new wardrobe so we set out to find our new style. We made an appointment with Lia at Big Bros Barbershop, a trans-owned and operated salon in East Vancouver. After leaving the salon, Charlie was a completely new child.

UPDATE (8/6/22): We are heartbroken to tell you that Archie's life-support was switched off on Saturday 6 August.

We ask you to add your name to the prayerful message we are sending Archie's parents, Hollie and Paul, who are suffering the most devastating time of their lives. 

Both the European Court of Human Rights and a UK High Court turned down respective applications by Archie's parents to halt the withdrawal of life-support and allow them to transfer their son to hospice care.

This cruel betrayal by the legal and medical establishment, who even denied Archie the right to travel abroad where treatment was being offered to him, represents another blow to the notion that human rights and parents' wishes really matter.

We can only hold Archie and the entire family in our prayers now.

Thank you for your support.

May God have mercy on them all.

Archie Battersbee (12) is on life-support in a UK hospital following a tragic accident, but doctors now want to end his treatment despite his distraught parents begging medics to let God decide when he dies.

Archie's heartbroken mother has submitted an application to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) that prevented the hospital turning off her son's life-support earlier today. 

SIGN this urgent petition in support of Archie and his family - tell the ECHR to Let Archie Live.

Lawyers for the hospital last night told Archie's family that he cannot be moved to a hospice, and that if an application to the ECHR was not received by 9am on 3 August, life support would be withdrawn at 11am.

Thankfully the family's lawyers submitted the ECHR application, or Archie would now be dead.

Archie’s mother Hollie Dance said: “We are very relieved (that Archie's machine was not turned off), we are having to battle every decision with the hospital. We now hope and pray that the ECHR will look favorably on the application."

"We will not give up on Archie until the end. Heartbreakingly, the hospital Trust have told us that we cannot move Archie to a hospice....This is cruel and we are absolutely appalled,” she added.

The family are also receiving offers from doctors abroad to treat Archie, but they are not allowed to transfer their son from the hospital.

On Tuesday government lawyers also convinced the UK's Supreme Court to dismiss the interim measures injunction issued by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD), which said Archie’s treatment should not be removed.

Archie's life is on the line - he needs us to raise the alarm throughout the world today.

SIGN AND SHARE this urgent petition today.

It is unspeakably cruel to drag Archie's mother through the courts when her son is in such a devastating condition - she should be allowed to spend this precious time with him, not having to fight tooth and nail to prevent doctors from withdrawing treatment.

While Archie's doctors claim he is "brain-stem dead", not one medic would testify before the courts that this is definitely the case. 

In fact, Archie's parents have footage of their son gripping their fingers, contrary to the doctors' claim he is "brain-stem dead".

Instead, Archie's mom is insisting that God should decide when her son passes, not doctors, lawyers, judges and politicians. 

Archie's dad, Paul Battersbee, fell ill outside the Court of Appeals on 25 July as he awaited a ruling that upheld the hospital's right to withdraw life-support treatment. 

Such is the stress, anxiety and pain that is being inflicted on these poor parents.

Please stand with this sorrowful mother and father today as they fight for their beloved son. 

Sign The Petition: Let Archie Live.

And please say a prayer for Archie and his family - this was the scene before lawyers managed to submit the ECHR application:

In other words: the little girl was now a boy.  

Let’s summarize this story based on what this child’s relatives have said. A little girl said she wanted to be just like her daddy and as a result, said she was a boy. She also played with many little boys and showed tomboy behavior (presumably because she wanted to play with stereotypically masculine toys). She wanted shorter hair and didn’t want to wear girly clothes.  

As a result of this, the little girl’s mother talked at length with her, presumably told her she had the option to say she was a boy, and began to “socially transition” her—not by letting her play with the toys and kids she wanted and letting her have short hair, but by affirming that she is a boy, telling all of her peers to call her a “he,” announcing this fact on social media and to various media outlets, and then making a show of it at the Vancouver Pride Parade. 

Just imagine how many little children are being led down this path by eager adults who believe that a two-year-old girl saying she wants to be like her daddy means that she’s a boy. Just imagine how much pain and confusion is being sown at such a young age. It is just unbelievably heartbreaking.
