(LifeSiteNews) – While much of Canada was in lockdown in the spring of 2021, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada, a club for kids with an over 100-year history of helping disadvantaged youth, removed “boys” and “girls” from its name.
“Not every young person identifies as a boy or a girl. So we’ve changed our name to reflect that,” says a video message posted last spring by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada, which now goes by the name “BGC Canada.”
“At BGC no kid or teen is ever turned away, no matter their backgrounds, no matter their circumstances.”
The name change was officially announced in the spring of 2021. In a statement, BGC said that the name change came about “Not to be trendy. Not because it’s shorter or catchier,” but “because Clubs across the country open their doors to all kids and teens and we believe our name should reflect that.”
“Removing gender from our name modernizes the BGC brand and echoes the inclusive practices we’re known for without straying too far from our history and national brand awareness. It also embraces the fact that we serve young people of all ages, backgrounds, and identities,” said BGC.
The adoption of what are termed “trans inclusive” pronouns has been heavily promoted by those in the LGBT movement. This is despite the hard reality of one’s biological sex, as well many people’s religious beliefs which hold that God created “man” and “woman.”
This is also despite the fact that, statistically speaking, only 0.33 percent of Canadians identify as “transgender” or “non-binary,” according to recent data.
The attack on the family along with the rights of parents has been increasing steadily over the past few years, notably in Western nations such as Canada and the United States.
Some Canadian provincial governments, such as that of British Columbia, are even purging from their law books references to both “mother” and “father,” along with all references to a person’s sex.
At the federal level, Campaign Life Coalition recently noted how Trudeau’s 2022 budget is “both anti-life and anti-family.”
Recently, Conservative MP and leadership contender Leslyn Lewis promised that if elected leader of the party, she will put forward “a bill protecting parental rights,” noting that Canada needs a government system that supports families instead of “tearing them down.”
“The government must not interfere with the rights of loving parents to raise their children in accordance with their own values. I will enshrine rights that protect parents into law,” said Lewis.
A disturbing movement that has afflicted society and the family, notably in Canada and the United States, is the “grooming” of children in public schools. “Groomer” refers to people who sexualize children or believe it is ok to do so.
The state of Florida recently enacted a “Parental Rights in Education” bill that bans the promotion of LGBTQ propaganda in the classrooms of elementary school kids.
LifeSiteNews blogger Jonathan Van Maren has written extensively about how taxpayer dollars in Canada and elsewhere contribute to “an agenda that is destroying children.”
The entire country has seen what happens when men enter women's sports.
Lia Thomas is a biological male, but he was nonetheless allowed swim against elite female competitors to win an NCAA Freestyle competition, much to the disappointment of those women who had trained so hard to compete.
SIGN THE PETITION TO BAN MALES FROM WOMEN'S SPORTS TODAY
Males have a natural advantage over females in the vast majority of sports, so allowing them to enter women's sports can:
- crush the motivation of the biological girls who have worked hard to compete on a level playing field
- put females into harm's way in contact sports and locker rooms
- deprive women of their right to fairly compete for college scholarships and many other accolades
We all know the spectacle of Lia Thomas defeating those female swimmers was a charade, a mockery of women's sports, but now it's time to do something about it.
Please SIGN this urgent petition calling on members of Congress to pass a law banning the participation of biological males in women's sports.
This is not just about ensuring biological girls and women can compete fairly and win in their chosen sports, but it's also a major safety issue in contact sports and the dangerous use of women's locker rooms by gender-confused males.
Some of you will remember Fallon Fox, the male MMA fighter who claimed to be a woman and left his female opponent concussed and with a fractured skull.
Fox later announced on social media that he enjoys "smacking up" women who "talk transphobic nonsense."
Any reasonable person knows men shouldn't compete against women, but some people are too politically correct to take a stand and protect girls and women from this madness.
It's now time to join the growing pushback against the gender-confused lobby and their dangerous beliefs that have literally left some female competitors in the hospital.
Please SIGN this common sense petition calling on Congress to ban all males from competing in women's sport.
Future generations will look back with gratitude on those who stood on the right side of history, defending women from these very confused males.
Nothing less than a federal ban on biological males forcing their way into women's sport is enough, so this petition will be sent to all members of Congress demanding legislative action.

Canada recently passed a law banning so-called “conversion therapy,” which says it is “dangerous” and criminalizes “conversations between consenting adults.”
Canadian constitutional lawyer Marty Moore, a lawyer for the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, blasted new radical legislation as criminalizing “conversations between consenting adults.”
Moore told LifeSiteNews that Bill C-4 not only “interferes severely with the teaching and practice of religious beliefs regarding sexuality and gender identity,” but it also “prevents religious LGBTQ persons from receiving support in accordance with their own religious faith.”
“This violates the Charter freedom of religion and conscience,” Moore said.
Joseph Bourgault, who just submitted his final paperwork and fees to officially become a candidate in the Conservative Party of Canada leadership race, pledged in a video to “review and then get rid of” Bill C-4 should he win.
