NASHVILLE, Tennessee (LifeSiteNews) — Thousands of people attended Matt Walsh’s “Rally to End Child Mutilation” on Friday to show opposition for the continued chemical and genital mutilation of kids through transgender drugs and surgeries.
Speakers at the event organized by The Daily Wire host included former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, Senator Marsha Blackburn, formerly gender-confused woman Chloe Cole, and “Scott” Newgent, a woman who “transitioned” to a man and has since spoken out against the harms of trangenderism. Speakers spoke over screaming from LGBT activists upset at the criticism of the chemical and genital mutilation of children.
“There is, in this state and all across the country, a conspiracy to target and indoctrinate our children into the cult of gender ideology,” Walsh said to kick off the event. This cult “fosters delusion, intentionally creates an identity crisis in young, impressionable kids.”
“It’s a cult which convinces them that gender doesn’t exist, that they have no identity; it’s a path to confusion and despair,” Walsh said. He then mentioned that Vanderbilt University Medical Center had started committing transgender surgeries and injecting kids with drugs for profit. Walsh’s report led to a temporary ban on the procedures by the medical center and calls by Republican leaders to ban the surgeries.
Congresswoman Gabbard warned that “those in power [are] denying the existence of women, they are seeking to erase us as an entire category of people, and even more dangerously, they are denying the existence of objective truth.”
She said that “without recognition that there is such a thing as truth, there are no boundaries in our society.”
“The most vulnerable among us, our children” are “suffering” because of this denial of truth. “Our kids are having their childhoods stolen from them,” she said.

Gabbard shared that as a kid she was a “tomboy,” and she wanted to be “cool” and “fun” and be a boy. “I moved on, and I grew up though,” she said. She criticized people who want to take away the rights of parents to raise their kids free of gender ideology. Last week, a leftist Virginia politician, Delegate Elizabeth Guzman, proposed sending in police officers and social workers to investigate parents who don’t “affirm” their child’s LGBT orientation, and possibly prosecute them for felony child abuse.
A large childcare chain in the United States just fired a faithful Christian caretaker for refusing to read LGBT propaganda to children.
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Bright Horizons Children’s Center in California terminated the contract of Nelli Parisenkova for not reading LGBT-themed books to children as young as 1 year-old.
Parisenkova, a devout Christian who worked for the company for four years, requested to not read the books because they violated her deeply held religious beliefs.
Instead of tolerating Nelli’s Christian faith, Bright Horizons demanded she 'celebrate diversity' or leave. After refusing to comply with this unjust ultimatum, Parisenkova’s boss expelled her from the building, which forced her to walk 20 minutes in 96-degree heat to the bus stop where she had to wait another 45 minutes.
Parisenkova is now suing Bright Horizons Children’s Center for violating her religious freedom, and she needs your help to raise public awareness about this assault on her human rights.
Sign this petition today to tell Nelli Parisenkova that you stand with her and her Christian faith against the LGBT agenda being pushed by Bright Horizon’s Children’s Center.
Bright Horizons thinks it can bully devout Christians like Nelli into submitting to their leftist ideology. Do not let them get away with it! We all must take a stand to ensure these attacks on our shared Christian faith come to an end. Here are the plain and simple facts:
- No child should be brainwashed to believe that marriage is between two men or two women.
- No child should be told that boys can become girls, or that girls can become boys.
- No child should be indoctrinated with the erroneous belief there are more than two genders, or that people can choose their gender identity.
This is not education. This is propaganda.
Nelli Parisenkova was RIGHT to protect children from LGBT indoctrination and she was RIGHT to invoke her Christian faith in doing so.
SIGN THIS PETITION NOW to tell her she is not alone in this fight!
“Truth” was a major theme of the event.
“I’m a woman and I will never be a man,”speaker Scott Newgent said at the rally Friday. Newgent appeared in Walsh’s What is a Woman? documentary. She said the chemical and genital mutilation of children is about one thing: “money.”
“No one can change their sex. Medical transition is experimental, cosmetic, and it only creates an illusion of the opposite-sex for comfort,” Newgent said.
Political leaders promised action at the rally as well. Speakers included Tennessee Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson and U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn.
Sen. Blackburn slammed Vanderbilt medical professionals for their “shocking” and “appalling” statements about putting “profits” before the health of children.
“I will do every thing that I can do at the federal level to make certain that we protect our children and that we make certain that families and parents are making decision for their children,” Blackburn said. “We have to make certain that we end these practices and that we protect the next generation of American citizens,” the Republican senator said.
She said that children must be protected against “the liberal left” using them for “profit and for political gain.”
“We in Tennessee will not stand for that,” Blackburn promised.

Walsh ended the rally by encouraging the attendees to continue to push politicians to pursue the truth and to stop the chemical and genital mutilation of children.
“It is very clear who stands on the side of truth, and that is us,” Walsh said to conclude the event.
