(LifeSiteNews) — René Salinas Ramos is the 47-year-old father of two daughters. According to Ecuadorian law, however, Ramos is a woman. That’s because he legally changed his gender to female in an attempt to get custody of his daughters—he says that their mother is abusive, that she keeps the children from him, and that he hasn’t seen them in five months. According to Ramos, he is a victim of an Ecuadorian law that stipulates maternal custody if no agreement is reached.
“My actions are not against anyone in particular, but against the system,” Ramos told local outlet La Voz del Tomebamba. “Now I am also a mom. That’s how I consider myself. I am very sure of my sexuality. What I have sought is to give the love and protection that a mother can give her children. Now that I am a woman, I can be a mother and I am on equal footing to fight for the parental authority of my daughters.” His new identification card identifies him as a woman.
Transgender groups—who have long been proponents of “self-identification,” a process in which someone can identify as a different gender simply by applying to have their ID and paperwork changed—are now upset by this. As Mary Harrington of Unherd noted sarcastically: “’We want males who identify as women to be able to gain privileges reserved for women’…’Wait, no, not like that.’” In fact, Nicola Sturgeon and the Scottish Nationalist Party just finished a knock-down, drag-out fight to secure precisely this policy in Scotland at the urging of transgender groups.
The consequences of this have been obvious for awhile. Conservative provocateur Lauren Southern legally became a man on her driver’s license in Canada several years ago while filming the process just to illustrate how farcical and simple it is. In 2018, one Canadian man fed up with high car insurance prices legally changed his gender to get the cheaper female rate. And hilariously, a man who legally changed his gender to female in Michigan was outraged when his car insurance rates went up, insisting that this was all very unfair. Because we live in a stupid culture, these stories (which actually happened!) are reported seriously.

The radical LGBT agenda infiltrating the Catholic Church is persecuting another brave priest, who now desperately needs your help to speak on his behalf.
Fr. Joachim Wernersbach has been SUSPENDED by his abbot of the Benedictine Tholey Abbey for preaching against gender ideology and the heterodox Synodal Way — pushed by Pope Francis and the German Synod of Bishops.
Fr. Wernersbach is also suspended from performing pastoral activists in the surrounding parish, and is being subject to “an ecclesiastical investigation.”
We need everyone to speak up for suspended priest Fr. Wernersbach — the LGBT agenda cannot claim another brave and devout priest.
SIGN and SHARE now.
Pro-life and pro-family priests around the world are being silenced and cancelled, while pro-LGBT activists get hand-written letters from the Pope, like Fr. James Martin.
Fr. Wernersbach simply reiterated Catholic teaching in his Christmas homily: "You hear about gender and transgender, transhumanism and reproductive health, wokeness and LGBTQ, diversity and identity. Of multiple genders and gender reassignment, plus this devastating new understanding of revelation from the Synodal Way," he said.
"My dear friends, even the terms are absolutely disturbing. They all have one thing in common: they lack beauty, they lack coherence, and they lack naturalness. They are not aligned, not in harmony with the inconceivably beautiful Divine Order."
For this denunciation of anti-Catholic trends, Fr. Wernersbach has been suspended by his own abbot. The entire homily has also been removed from YouTube.
The systematic persecution of pro-life and pro-family priests must end now.
Demand that Fr. Wernersbach be restored to full priestly ministry and demand that his superiors STOP shilling for the LGBT agenda!
Good and faithful priests are being systematically cancelled — but you can raise your voice to stop the attacks.
SIGN NOW before it’s too late.
Fr. Wernersbach needs your voice!
German priest punished by superiors for preaching against gender ideology, Synodal Way
But there is something insidious about the fact that transgender groups are just now expressing their outrage. For years now, we’ve been treated to a nonstop torrent of stories of male sex criminals identifying as female in order to get lighter sentences or sent to women’s prisons. For example, the man convicted of multiple sexual assaults against minors in Connecticut who recently began identifying as an intersex female and demanding to be sent to a female prison. Female inmates have been living in terror as male sex criminals are locked behind bars with them; many have reported being sexually assaulted. Instead of listening to their concerns, some have actually been threatened with longer sentences if they “misgender” their assailants.

All of that happens, and transgender groups don’t make a peep. Trans activists will not condemn the practice of sending male sex criminals who identify as women to women’s prisons—most will publicly support it as a human right. Often, trans activists will not even address the stories of women victimized by these criminals, insisting that the very premises of such questions are “transphobic.” But when a father decides to play at the same game not to hurt anyone, but simply to get access to his children—now trans groups are, as Vice put it, “concerned.” I’ve never seen a headline that read: “Transgender inmate assaulted fellow prisoners. Trans groups concerned.” So why now?
The transgender movement cares more about society affirming their own delusion than they do about the safety of women. Their selective outrage in this particular instance once again exposes them for who they really are.
