July 29, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — If one day on the other side of this madness, somebody wants to write a history of how the transgender movement domesticated the press, Exhibit A will be the way they leaped to obey each time a celebrity announced that he or she was switching genders and declared that they wanted to be addressed by the pronouns of the opposite sex.

There’s Ellen Page, who became Elliot Page overnight — “deadnaming,” or mentioning the name that everyone in the world knew the actress by until fifteen minutes ago, is considered cruel at best, and a crime at worst. The quirky female star of films like Juno is thus a “he,” and you are bigoted for asking questions.

This month, it is 29-year-old Tommy Dorfman, the actor who plays the gay character Ryan Shaver on the Netflix Show 13 Reasons Why. The show has already courted controversy for dramatizing and glorifying teen suicides — data showed a 28.9% increase in youth suicides after the show was released — and won awards for explicit LGBT content. Now, one of male stars is a female star.

At least, that’s what he says — and the media would like to assure you that this is a very real thing that we are all required to believe.

Dorfman, for his part, has gone all in. “I view today as a reintroduction to me as a woman, having made a transition medically,” he told TIME magazine. “Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy.” That clear enough for you?

According to Dorfman, he’s been “privately identifying and living as a woman — a trans woman” for a year now, during which he detailed his transition on Instagram. Dorfman posed for the now-obligatory post-transition photo shoot in a red dress (Bruce Jenner got dolled up for Vanity Fair; Ellen Page posed as a man for TIME).

Despite now identifying as a woman, Tommy has decided to keep his name. “I’m named after my mom’s brother who passed a month after I was born, and I feel very connected to that name, to an uncle who held me as he was dying. This is an evolution of Tommy. I’m becoming more Tommy.” He didn’t explain how he became more “Tommy” by identifying as a woman, but there it is.

This sort of babble is very in vogue right now, and Dorfman has already landed a job as a woman in a film directed by Lena Dunham (who is perhaps considering a redo of Girls, updated for 2021). Dorfman has announced that he will now play exclusively female characters. Additionally, he’s dumped his gay partner of nearly a decade because he now identifies as female.

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!


'Save James: Father risks arrest to save 9-year-old son from forced gender-transition':


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.]

Here is what Dr Paul McHugh said on this topic:

This is the ACP statement on Gender Ideology:

About the medical risks associated with medical interventions to attempt to change the sex of the body:

About some of the unconscionable practices some medical professionals are engaged in:

The Hollywood set is all in on transgenderism, and so the predictable congratulations came flowing in. Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana on The Crown and recently posed in a chest-binder, wrote: “I AM SO PROUD OF YOU @TommyDorfman thank you for being YOU, for sharing this. We see you, we love you.” Dorfman’s co-star Katherine Langford wrote: “She’s STUNNING.”

Trans is trendy amongst celebrities at the moment. In 2018, Cynthia Nixon announced that her daughter was “transitioning”; NBA all-star Dwayne Wade and his wife actress Gabrielle Union are raising their son Jackson as a girl; Walking Dead actor Khary Payton has said that his little daughter now identifies as a boy. Gender dysphoria, castration, mastectomies, and hormone therapy are apparently something to celebrate.

Tommy, of course, won’t be the last. There will be more, and we’ll watch the whole circus play out again. Star comes out as trans; celebrities rush to offer praise and gushing compliments on how “beautiful” they look post-surgery; the media will announce that we should be so proud of this person who is now a different sex; and then, on to the next story.
