WASHINGTON, D.C., July 6, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — On the final day of “Pride Month,” the Biden White House hosted an online event pandering to gender-confused persons, during which top members of the administration urged children to report transgender “discrimination.” The Biden administration also sent out a warning that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is coming after states instituting laws resisting transmania. 

Kristen Clarke, Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights at the DOJ, declared that state laws protecting girls’ sports from infiltration by gender-confused boys “single out and target transgender youth” and “violate both the Constitution and Title IX.” She added that state laws banning “gender-affirming” procedures for youth are “rooted in bias and prejudice.”

“We’re ramping up law enforcement training and coordination at all levels of government,” said Clarke.  

Addressing her comments specifically to youth, Clarke said, “If you or someone you know is facing discrimination because you are transgender, we want to know.”  Her statement leaves plenty of room for interpretation, seeming to invite kids to incriminate their parents for not being “gender-affirming” enough.

“You can file a complaint now,” she added.  

Wearing a pin with the new LGBTQ+ “pride” flag, Biden Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona also said he wants to “create school environments for transgender students that are nurturing, welcoming, and affirming.”  

“Transgender students must be afforded the same opportunities as their peers to participate fully in and experience the joy of school, including extracurricular activities,” continued Cardona. “I am proud to share that the Department affirmed this month that Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation in all education institutions that receive federal funding.”   

“We are on your side, we’ve got your back,” said Cardona, who didn’t mention whether or not his Department of Education has the backs of biological female student athletes. 

Last month, despite his vocal support for “non-binary” students, Cardona refused to state how many genders there are after being challenged to come up with a number by a Republican member of Congress. 

Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of Health and Human Services Richard Levine — known as “Rachel” in the Biden administration and in secular media — said he is “truly humbled to be the first openly transgender individual to serve in a Senate-confirmed position.”

“I will do everything that I can to support and advocate for our community,” said Levine, who promised to “conduct investigations” of complaints by gender dysphoric individuals who want all health practitioners to affirm their chosen “gender identity,” despite religious beliefs or secular knowledge that there are precisely two sexes. 

Levine dismissed all objections to transgenderism as nothing more than politics.  

Levine is “one of the 14 percent of all appointees in the Biden administration who identify as LGBTQ+,” a spectacularly disproportionate representation when contrasted with the total number of self-identified homosexual or gender dysphoric individuals in the general population, which hovers at less than 5 percent.

The Biden administration sees itself as making history by manufacturing ‘trans rights’

Dubbed a “Convening on Transgender Equality,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki kicked off the June 30 livestream event by announcing that her personal pronouns are “she, her, and hers.”  President Joe Biden previously informed the nation that his preferred pronouns are “he and him.”   

The White House simultaneously announced the creation of a new White House-led “Interagency Working Group on Safety, Inclusion, and Opportunity for Transgender Americans” to combat what it sees as “epidemic levels of violence, discrimination, and stigma.” 

One of the Biden administration’s main goals is to “ensure the federal government is a model employer for transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary employees.”

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.]

“The Working Group will include participants from the Departments of Justice, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, Education, Homeland Security, Labor, Interior, Veterans Affairs, and Defense,” continued the White House statement. “Today’s announcements build on the Administration’s historic actions to advance” transgender “equality.”

“The President of the United States and his advisers are lifting you up on this pedestal and calling you an activist and making this an important part of your identity — at a time when (young) people’s psyches are fragile because they’re in adolescence, and it’s a time of a lot of turmoil,” feminist Natasha Chart told Breitbart. 

“They are encouraging these kids, ‘Come out as this, and someone will make you famous,’” said Chart.  “In other contexts, such as when you’re talking about the school-to-prison pipeline, these same progressives would describe it as dehumanizing to give an adult prison term (to children).”  

While everyone participating in the White House online conversation about transgenderism claimed that this was a vitally important topic for the nation, after nearly a week, the YouTube video has garnered less than 15,000 views. A White House tweet about the video has received less than 2,400 “likes.”
