January 26, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A short time ago, “transgender kids” was a phrase that marked you as one of those hysterical social conservatives who, when proven right, subsequently got called bigoted for pointing that out. Trans kids are so trendy these days that the hapless Elizabeth Warren promised she’d have one approve her Education Secretary, and President Joe Biden torched female athletics with a radical executive order that should jolt any of those gullible innocents who were sure he’d be a “moderate Democrat,” a long-extinct species hunted to death by zealous progressives.

Trans kids, of course, need accessories, since they weren’t born with the ones that fit the gender as which they wish to present. A cottage industry to service this need has popped up, with “packers” for girls who identify as boys to put in their underwear to mimic a penis (the sophisticated ones are advertised as capable of permitting gender dysphoric girls to pee standing up just like a real boy); binders, which girls can use to flatten their breasts and present as male prior to obtaining double mastectomies; and a wide range of carefully tailored apparel.

The newest of these clothing brands is called Rubies, produced by a Toronto dad, Jamie Alexander. Alexander’s child was born male. He began identifying as female in third grade and adopted the name Ruby. According to Alexander, Ruby had a hard time finding “bikini bottoms that made her feel both comfortable and confident as a transgender girl,” Today reported. This, obviously, is because revealing female swimwear does not hide male genitalia effectively. Thus, the new clothing brand was born — to much media acclaim.

We used to say: Be who you are be comfortable in your body! Now we design entire clothing lines to help children conceal their bodies and present as a different gender.

Reading media coverage of the transgender kids trend always strikes me as particularly tragic. Today’s coverage is a good example of this, describing the creation of this new line as having “the specific goal of producing form-fitting clothing for transgender children up to a size 20. His first product: the Ruby Shaping Bikini Bottom.” In short: A bikini bottom that hides a penis. As Alexander’s website notes, these bikini bottoms “magically turn a pointy poker into a dainty dune, no tucking required.”

According to Alexander, these form-fitting bottoms are unique because they use spandex with a mesh liner “that is able to gently compress and ‘pull things in’ without causing discomfort.” Read that one more time and consider what is being advertised here. What are we doing to these kids?

If you’re wondering what progressives are talking about when they say they want “normalcy,” this is it. Jessica Herthel, the co-author of the transgender children’s book I Am Jazz, noted that this new clothing line will be “a total game-changer for transgender and gender-creative children … to go swimming without fear of being stared at or teased or even targeted can give a child a feeling of normalcy and belonging.”

Alexander concurred, saying that he wanted to assist in ensuring that it soon seems normal for kids to be transgender. “I want to focus on the positive stories about these kids and normalize them,” he told Today.

For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.

Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.

And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.

Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.

January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.

January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.

(After you have signed this petition, take a couple of minutes to personally contact your state legislators by email, Twitter, or by phone, using the Voter Voice tool provided to you by LifeSite. With one click of a button, you can contact them without having to look up any contact details yourself!)

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.

Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.

And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition. And then, please take 5 minutes to contact your local state representatives using the Voter Voice link below. With Voter Voice, it really couldn't be easier.

Thank you!

One of the difficulties for social conservatives in the days ahead is that increasingly, conservatives and progressives no longer speak the same language. When we speak of normalcy, we are referring to something markedly different than trans activists. Their version of “normal” includes clothing lines that hide the presence of a penis; packers that mimic the presence of a penis; binders that disguise breasts; surgeries that create facsimile chest mounds.

This is not normal, and we must resist every attempt to make it so. That is why we must pay attention to these trends and what these activists are saying — because one minute it is a trend, the next it is law, and finally, it is taught in the schools — and our children are swept along.
