(LifeSiteNews) – If I had to summarize the key arguments of the sexual revolutionaries as succinctly as possible, it would probably be this: “Who does it hurt?” This is followed by an insistence on ignoring the plethora of answers to that question. Divorce hurts the kids. Abortion kills babies. Redefining marriage is destroying religious liberty (“bake the cake, bigot!”). Add to that a pandemic of sexually transmitted diseases, and I think you’ll agree that there are very real consequences to this allegedly victim-free revolution.
But with the transgender movement, the gaslighting is at its height. Women are being told that they have no right to female-only spaces. Men with penises, after all, are women. Thus, if young girls are exposed to male genitalia in a spa, they need re-education. If girl scouts want to know if they’re camping out with a boy, they need to check their bigotry. And, grotesquely, victims of sexual assault have no right to spaces free of male bodies.
Rape crisis centres have been under attack by the transgender movement for some time—Canada’s oldest centre was stripped of government funding for refusing to accept men identifying as women. But particularly egregious is an unfolding situation in Scotland, covered recently by The Critic, where trans activists have conquered the Rape Crisis Scotland (RCS), which operates 17 centres across the country.
Earlier this month, chief executive Mridul Wadhwa—a man identifying as a woman and CEO of the Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre—explained on a well-known podcast that women who believe they are entitled to female-only spaces need to get over themselves. “Sexual violence happens to bigoted people as well,” he said. “And so, you know, it is not a discerning crime. But these spaces are also for you. But if you bring unacceptable beliefs that are discriminatory in nature, we will begin to work with you on your journey of recovery from trauma. But please also expect to be challenged on your prejudices.”
And what about rape victims who find the presence of male genitalia triggering? Wadhwa had a suggestion: these survivors should “reframe their trauma” and “rethink [their] relationship with prejudice.”
In 2019, LifePetitions launched a similar petition on behalf of Jeff Younger (the father) and his son James, asking for support and for the Texas state authorities to intervene in a unbelievable case in which the Dallas courts keep flip-flopping over which parent has parental rights and, ultimately, whether or not James must be forced to live as a girl and suffer the trauma of so-called gender "transitioning," as his mom believes he is a girl.
Incredibly, we now seem to be back at square one.
Jeff Younger currently has a gag order put on him, which prohibits him to speak out in defense of his son. But, because he has recently decided to ignore that order, to save his son from irreversible surgery, this brave Dad now faces possible arrest.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which does two things: 1) Supports Jeff Younger (again, the Dad) in his fight to save his son, James, from so-called gender "transitioning;" and, 2) Calls on Texas' Attorney General to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Mr. Younger.
CLICK HERE to WATCH the latest LifeSite interview with Jeff Younger. Hear about the latest developments with his son, as well as the real dangers of gender reassignment surgery and other “transititioning” methods.
Currently, even though he shares 50/50 parental rights to James, which has allowed him to stop the chemical castration of his son, Jeff’s ex-wife recently sued to have full parental rights and to "give her sole medical and psychological decision making."
Jeff is also being threatened with jail time from the gag order, which he believes was intentionally done to stop him from helping pass legislation in Texas to ban sex-change surgeries for minors.
Jeff says that the gag order "prohibits me from speaking on all manner of political topics. And I’m not even allowed to tell you in that gag order whether my son’s a boy or girl."
But Jeff is speaking out, no matter what, because of the real danger that his son is in if he undergoes "transition" surgery.
Indeed, so-called gender "transitions" present many unsafe effects, some desired, some undesired, though all dangerous for one's physical and mental health.
Puberty-blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones have not been proven safe. For example, the FDA has NOT approved Lupron and GnRH analogues for use in blocking puberty.
Risks associated with these pharmaceuticals include: low bone density, high blood pressure, weight gain, abnormal glucose tolerance, breast cancer, liver disease, thrombosis, and cardiovascular disease.
And, additional risks and potential harms include:
For Males: Stunting of penile and testicular growth, sexual dysfunction, prevention of spermatogenesis, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.
For Females: A menopause-like state, blockade of normal breast development, decreased blood flow to vagina and vulva, sexual dysfunction, thinning of vaginal epithelium, vaginal atrophy, prevention of menses/ovulation, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.
In other words, these medications can sterilize and cause medical harm to vulnerable, confused children.
And, the stunning part about this: studies show that 85% of gender confused children eventually become comfortable with the sex of their bodies.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports Jeff Younger, a Texas Dad, who is fighting to prevent his son, James, from being "turned into a girl." At the same time, we appeal to Texas State Attorney General, to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Jeff.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE DANGERS OF PUSHING GENDER IDEOLOGY ON CHILDREN:
Many eminent psychiatrists are now speaking against the faulty notion that sex is fluid and a matter of choice. In particular, they are concerned about the welfare of children and young people in this regard.
Dr Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, who has researched the occurrence of gender dysphoria for 40 years, has stated that the notion of gender fluidity "is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges". [See more below.]
And, the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) is definite about the promotion of transgenderism as being harmful public policy:
"Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: 'XY' and 'XX' are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived, either male or female…Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents…” [Read more below.]

About some of the unconscionable practices some medical professionals are engaged in:
As Josephine Bartosch quoted a survivor of sexual violence in her article in The Critic who noted that: “Even the best men in our lives can be triggering during these difficult periods. Women need to be able to choose female only services or therapists and they do not need to explain why to anyone… To hear this week that Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre does not truly give women this choice and their CEO goes further to suggest such requests are bigoted, discriminatory and require challenge has been an absolute sucker punch in the gut to so many survivors.”
“Wadhwa’s words have highlighted a growing fracture between a ‘professional’ class of feminist (those who are paid to run services to support victims of male violence) and grassroots feminists (many of whom have been service-users),” Bartosch writes. “It is telling that the professional class of feminist prioritises the feelings of their peers above the fears of those they are paid to support.”
Wadhwa released a statement to “clarify” his comments on August 12, concluding with: “I am drawing a line under the podcast and in desperate hope that my words here are understood in full and with the compassion and integrity I am writing with.” In short, he is not backing down. Women who have been victimized by men are being told by a man that they should “reframe their trauma” in order to support his delusions of being a woman. He has been rewarded with multiple positions earmarked for females, including overseeing a rape crisis centre.
But to our politically correct elites, these survivors are just more collateral damage.
