LONDON, England (LifeSiteNews) – The daughter of a former British Home Secretary caused a media firestorm after tweeting “Someone needs to create porn for children.”

Flora Gill, the London-based journalist whose mother Amber Rudd, a former Conservative MP, served as Home Secretary from 2016–2018, posted the suggestion to her Twitter feed on Thursday.

“Young teens are already watching porn,” the 28-year-old observed in the since-deleted tweet. She lamented that these children view “hard core, aggressive videos that give a terrible view of sex.” Instead, Gill suggested children “need entry level porn! A soft core site where everyone asks for consent and no one gets choked etc.”

After receiving backlash from commenters on her social media profile, Gill, who hosts Times Radio talk show Split Opinion with her ex-MP mother, wrote a follow-up tweet in which she clarified that her use of the word “children” meant those “under 18. I’m talking about 14/15/16 year olds.”

This tweet was also deleted soon after publication. 

Gill then posted another tweet, this one explaining that she had deleted the original message promoting porn for children so as not to get “swept up in another twitter cesspool.”

“Obviously not an actual solution,” she added, before affirming her position that the type of pornography viewed by teenagers is “a real problem.’”

Despite her best efforts to quell the rage of the internet, thousands of Twitter users commented negatively on Gill’s posts. One reply read “Showing ANYONE under 18 ANY pornography is a form of non-contact CHILD ABUSE.” Another user agreed, stating that “All porn does is encourage harmful attitudes towards sex, but now she wants to damage children in the same way that porn has damaged so many adults…?”

Some others characterized her comments as advocating “gateway porn,” and many more suggested Gill delete her account immediately.

Among the replies, however, were some messages of support for identifying the problem of unfettered access to pornography even while rejecting Gill’s proposed solution.

“Whilst Flora Gill’s comments are a step too far, the point raised that children stumble upon hard-core pornography far too easily is definitely a valid one, and not enough has been done to protect children online,” one commenter said.

Former X-Factor winner Steve Brookstein expressed his delight that the original tweet was deleted, citing his own experience of abuse. “As a victim of abuse who was subjected to porn at a young age I can assure you that deleting that ill-informed tweet was the right thing to do. Think,” he wrote.

Gill responded to the outrage by posting yet another tweet, this time asking commenters to respect her removal of the original tweet by no longer saving and sharing her words.

“[A]propos of nothing I really think if someone quickly deletes a tweet, it shouldn’t be screenshotted and shared like… just let it die, you know? no? no one else agree?” she asked.

Raheem Kassam, editor-in-chief of political news outlet The National Pulse, replied that Gill is “mentally unfit to live amongst people and should probably be in jail immediately” for her comments.

“Have a nice day, except don’t. And please leave children alone,” Kassam added.

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.

Thank you!

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.]

In related news, the top brass at MindGeek, the parent company of Pornhub, the world’s largest pornography website, face a $40 million lawsuit for profiting from the illegal videos depicting rape and the sexual abuse of minors hosted on their platform.

The porn bosses defended themselves in a February hearing before the Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics. The Committee launched an investigation into the X-rated website after evidence came to light that Pornhub hosts content displaying child abuse and rape. Despite the evidence against them, including the testimony of some 40 sex abuse survivors, the company executives declared that the site is the “safest adult platform in the world.”

Laila Mickelwait of Exodus Cry, a group dedicated to abolishing sex-trafficking, has launched a hugely successful petition to have Pornhub removed from the internet and its executives held accountable for the criminal activity they have facilitated. The petition has already garnered over 2 million signatures.
