Having a Democrat Mother in Congress and Wanting to Change Your Gender is Uncannily Common

If you are a member of Generation Z and your mother is a Democrat in the House, the probability that you declare yourself a member of a previously unknown gender is astonishingly high.


If we are to write off this correlation as a mere coincidence, it’s certainly politically advantageous for the middle-aged mothers of these young adults.

For example, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA)’s son Janak declared himself “gender non-conforming” in 2018 while attending—you’ll never guess—Wesleyan University. This gave Rep. Jayapal the chance to sprinkle in an incredibly personal element while speaking on the House floor in favor of the 2019 Equality Act.

“My beautiful, now 22-year-old child told me last year that they were gender nonconforming,” claimed Jayapal. “The only thought I wake up with every day is: My child is free. My child is free to be who they are, and in that freedom comes a responsibility for us as legislators to protect that freedom.”

It also allowed Jayapal an opportunity to share her support of the 2SLGBTQIAA+ community in her Congressional biography, describing herself as “the proud mother of a transgender daughter named Kashika.”

And, if it weren’t for Kashika, her op-ed on transgender legislation likely would not have made it in Teen Vogue last March.

Speaking of Teen Vogue, Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL) secured a photoshoot for herself and her son Tyler in the summer of 2021. Well, except that Tyler goes by Evie and has been openly transgender since 2019. This would mean that Tyler came out shortly following Newman’s 2018 primary loss. Marie Newman gained her seat in Congress after running again in 2020.

The special issue’s cover featuring the mother-son duo is subtitled, “The personal is political.” That’s exactly right.


You could say to me, listen, if they’re not hurting anyone, they can dress however they want. This point might have held validity until this weekend. The son of Democrat Minority Whip Rep. Katherine Clark of—wait for it—Massachusetts was arrested on charges of Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, Destruction or Injury of Personal Property, and Damage of Property by Graffiti/Tagging.

Jared Dowell, who now answers to “Riley,” took part in an Antifa demonstration that turned violent. Funny, I thought Antifa was just “an idea, not an organization.” And funny, these Antifa demonstrations often seem to “turn violent.”

If you can recall, Clark brought up Jared recently—his nightmares, specifically—in a discussion on climate change. Allegedly, the second child of the congresswoman wakes up sweating from the impending atmospheric apocalypse. But I suppose that’s what happens when you drill woke fearmongering messaging into your children instead of mothering them.

Twenty-three-year-old Dowell was part of a megaphone-toting crowd that bestowed graffiti upon the Boston Common’s Parkman Bandstand Monument Saturday evening: “No cop city” and “ACAB.” The group aimed to protest December’s fatal shooting of UMass Boston student Sayed Faisal after he wielded a kukri knife at officers in Cambridge.

When officers attempted to arrest Dowell for vandalism, the other members of Antifa physically interfered, rendering one member of Boston PD bleeding from the nose and mouth.

Dowell was arraigned in Boston Municipal Court and released on bail for $500. His mother took to Twitter to acknowledge her knowledge of the situation. Then, she went right back to work. Her pro-abortion piece in The Hill was coming out today, after all.


I wish I could give this phenomenon the benefit of the doubt—that these three young men of similar age and in wildly similar circumstances all happen to suffer from the mental illness of gender dysphoria—but I can’t. My heart breaks for Janak, Tyler, and Jared.

Here’s the tell-tale sign. We don’t know anything about each of these men except for the discomfort he feels in his body. To the Democrats, it’s the only interesting thing about him.

Between near-constant campaigning, fundraising, and attending “women’s rights” events, Mommy wasn’t around much during his formative years. And she won’t mention the typical, heterosexual adolescent male on the House floor, silly! There’s no way he can assist her in passing Leftist legislation. Masculinity is toxic, remember?

Change your name, change your gender, and suddenly—if I may borrow a phrase from Katherine Clark’s Twitter account—you matter. The more intersectional, the better.

It’s not just these men. It’s my generation.

Generation Z wants to be interesting. We want to be important. We want to matter.

Jettison the tenets of Western civilization, of Judeo-Christian values—the inherent dignity of the human person—and what’s left? Only what you can see about him: race, gender, weight, how he dresses, who he marries.

These Democrat women preach this every day for all to hear. These boys were raised void of self-esteem. Ever since, their cries have been commoditized as career advancement techniques.
