Judge denies trans teen's name change because Caitlyn Jenner may have brainwashed him

Source: LGBTQ Nation



By Alex Bollinger · Wednesday, July 11, 2018

A judge in Ohio refused to approve a transgender teen’s name change, and now the parents are appealing, saying that the judge overstepped his authority.

Leigh and Kylen Whitaker took their son Elliott to court last month to make his name change official. “We thought it was just a formality, basically,” Elliott’s mother Leigh said.

She said that Judge Joseph Kirby’s questions were strange. “He started out by asking us, ‘Did this all start when all of this stuff came out in the media?'” she said. Kirby clarified that he was referring to Caitlyn Jenner.

He ultimately denied the name change, writing, “Children change significantly and rapidly.” He attributed Elliott’s gender identity to the “fevered identity exploration” of adolescence. Kirby told Elliott to “Age. Develop. Mature.” and that he should ask again to change his name when he turns 18.

1. I wish they could sue that judge for the cost of therapy.

Because that kid will need some. Also, the higher rate of suicide amongst trans people is largely negated by acceptance and support. I wonder how much damage this judge did.

I would move and apply for the name change elsewhere.

Not a cheap option, but maybe a friend or relative could help.

As the father of a trans boy, I would be horrified by this.

5. Not surprising. When I went to court for my name change the judge asked if my ex-husband had given

his permission for the name change.

It was all I could do to restrain myself. In response, I raised my voice to make sure all in the courtroom could hear, and told the judge that I didn't need the court's permission to change my name so either approve the application or not.

My ex-husband had been my ex for more than 8 years by this time, lived several thousand miles away and we hadn't spoken in years.

At the time, in AZ you didn't need the court's permission to change your name as long as the change is not for criminal purposes.
