Ecuadorian man changes gender to “female” to gain custody of children in country that favors mothers during custody battles
By Ethan Huff // Jan 10, 2023

To get them out of what he says is an abusive situation with their mother, an Ecuadorian father of two young daughters has officially changed his gender to "female," effectively increasing his chances of custody success.

Since mothers hold the upper hand in Ecuadorian law, René Salinas Ramos, 47, figured that becoming a "mother" himself might help him get his two girls back – and the LGBTQ lobby is furious about it.

What Ramos is attempting to do is take advantage of a 2015 law that allows Ecuadorians to legally change their gender. By doing this, Ramos has become a "woman," allowing him the same special benefits as his wife in terms of gaining custody of his children.

"The laws say that the one who has the right is the woman," Ramos told La Voz del Tomebamba. "As of this moment, I am female. Now I'm also a mom, that's how I consider myself."

"I am very sure of my sexuality. What I have sought is that I want to be a mother, so that I can also give the love and protection of a mother. Being a father in this country, Ecuador, is punished and I'm only seen as a provider."

(Related: Transgenderism is also being used as a weapon to separate gender dysphoric children from loving parents who want to protect them from the Cult of LGBT.)

If you become trans for the "wrong" reasons, the LGBTQ cult will reject you

Diane Rodríguez, one of Ecuador's most prominent trans activists, spoke out against Ramos, deciding that he is not worthy of taking advantage of the country's trans laws because he is not a real trans.

"This man's private matter, to obtain custody of his daughters, isn't the spirit of the law," Rodríguez scoffed, deliberately failing to refer to Ramos using she and her pronouns.

The first ever trans Assembly person in Eduador, Rodríguez feels as though Ramos is not really trans enough because he decided to change genders for the specific reason to gain back custody of his children.

A judge, Rodríguez declared, will not comply with Ramos' demands "because it does not make sense that you have changed your gender in the identity document without being a trans person, only with the objective of taking advantage to obtain custody."

"We are afraid that in the Assembly things will go backwards and they will start legislating against us," Rodríguez further complained in a statement.

In response to the various accusations being made against him, Ramos stated that his decision to become trans "is not against a person, not to harm anyone, but rather to fight against this system that has stigmatized the fact of being born a man."

Rodríguez, in return, stated that she does not believe Ramos will be successful – and hopes he is not – because in her view, suddenly, natural biology is a real thing now that a real man stands to win in a case against a real woman, which apparently cannot be allowed.

"The law doesn't say anything about the best interests of children," Rodríguez scoffed. "I understand that in his situation, in desperation, he chose to change the gender on the identity document. But no, it won't have any effect."

Were this the other way around and Ramos' ex-wife was trying to assume custody of the couple's children in order to transition them, then Rodríguez and the trans lobby would probably be celebrating the effort and pushing for Ramos to be stripped of his fatherhood rights.
