Saving Miles

Hello,  My name is Brenton Netz and I am the father of Miles, a 10-year-old boy with autism.

Against my wishes and established parental authority, Miles is currently undergoing transgender counseling. The counseling is to try and convince him that he is a little girl named Miley.

Miles has recently reached Stage 2 on the Tanner Scale or Sexual Maturity Rating (SMR). SMR is a scale of physical development in children, adolescents and adults. The scale defines physical measurements of development based on external primary and secondary sex characteristics.

As Miles has reached this stage, I have been told he is ready for puberty blockers.

I cannot let his happen. My son is only 10 years old. He has been ensnared in a gender dysmorphic culture that disproportionately affects children with autism, like Miles, due to their highly impressionable and obsessive personalities.


In Texas, there has recently been a widely-publicized legal battle between the parents of a seven-year- old boy. The father is attempting to stop the boy’s mother from allowing dangerous and untested hormonal therapies (like puberty blockers) to be administered to their child.

I recommend a well written article about that case and its related implications: "The Tragedy of the Trans Child" by Madeleine Kearns (National Review) My son Miles is briefly mentioned in the article as another example of this madness (the "trans-gender lesbian" child in Minnesota) 

My son and I are in a similar situation. Miles’s mother has had him in therapy at a sexual and gender medicine clinic since he was seven years old.

Because he has reached stage 2 on the SMR, according to the experts at the gender clinic, a treatment of puberty blockers is considered the next “standard of care” for my child who has allegedly been diagnosed with “persistent and well-documented gender dysphoria”. This round of treatment will lead to the administration of female hormones and eventual sex-reassignment surgery.

I do not believe that my son is transgender and should not continue with these treatments. At a minimum, as his father, my thoughts and wishes regarding this matter need to be heard.

I have started this fundraiser in the hopes of gathering donations to be used for legal expenses including competent legal representation, child-care expenses, and other day-to-day expenses required for this legal battle.

Please considering donating. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Learn more about Miles on our various social media sites:


One more step. Would you please consider sharing this campaign with your friends and family on social media?

Thank you!
