A 12-year-old resident of New Jersey had her life transformed by Marvel and Disney into the story of a superhero in a recent web-released comic. That doesn’t sound so bad, right? Unfortunately, the child’s story is being used to promote and normalize transgenderism in children.
Marvel’s “Hero Project” is a documentary series available to subscribers of Disney+, and the joint venture tells stories of everyday American children who overcome challenges in their lives and improve their community in the process. Some of the stories are quite remarkable, such as Adonis, who lost his eyesight at age five yet continues to pursue his passion for playing football.1 Due to the topic we discuss in this article, we’re not too fond of promoting Disney, so instead, if you’re interested, check out Vision of Children’s 4 minute YouTube clip on Adonis.
But one of the stories stood out as troubling. In their most recent release, Marvel chronicled the life of 12-year-old Rebekah, a transgender child whose mother allowed her to transition at just 8-years-old.
While it’s not Nationalist Review’s place to comment on or criticize an American child, we felt that the promotion of this story was rather disturbing. Every child in this country deserves to grow up without the microscope of media attention throwing them to the wolves, so we’re not going to say much more about Rebekah. But we have a lot to say about the child’s mother.

Disney is promoting transitioning using children’s programming
First, let us briefly condemn both Disney and Marvel (a subsidiary of Disney) for promoting the disturbing trend of gender transitioning in minors.
There is nothing more evil than destroying the chance for a child to grow, explore, and discover themselves so that upon reaching adulthood they may make decisions while fully informed of the potential consequences. No child should be encouraged or allowed to transition, but there’s something particularly repugnant about a mother using her child as a social media prop and career builder while a massive corporation broadcasts the behavior as heroic. This is not romantic heroism. This is a tragedy.
Overly socialized parents are destroying their children’s future
What we are going to do is condemn the mother of that child, the woman who allowed such a young kid to make a life altering change, a change so drastic that it will permanently impact them for the rest of their life.
Rebekah’s mother is Jamie Bruesehoff who describes herself as follows:
Jamie Bruesehoff (she/her) is an award-winning writer, speaker, and advocate. She is an openly queer woman married to a Lutheran pastor and mom to three spirited children, including a twelve year old transgender daughter. She is passionate about sharing her family’s story, because she believes our stories are bridges to understanding, compassion, and celebration.
Bruesehoff is engaging in the latest vogue habit of affluent white liberal women: dismantling her child’s life into a social media prop piece. The behavior is destructive, solipsistic, and self-indulging. Since 2009, she’s made a habit of blogging about her parenting quirks. Now, she’s made a career out of the product of those quirks, and has the gall to describe herself as an activist these days.
Two years ago, Bruesehoff wrote a piece for the Huffington Post wherein she makes clear her intention to put her child on gender transitioning hormones in the near future. However, it’s not the hormones that she thinks are dangerous. No, she believes criticism of her destructive behavior is where the true problem lay:
They said she was 7 years old when she’s actually 10, and they said we were forcing her to take hormones, something she won’t take for a few more years as medically appropriate, to make her into a girl…Honestly, it’s so absurd it’s almost laughable. It might be laughable if it weren’t so damn dangerous.
Now, years later, it’s unclear if her child is currently on hormones.
In 2013, Bruesehoff blogged about her children struggling with diagnosed issues of anxiety:
I have two very sensitive kids, one has diagnosed anxiety while both of them have some sensory processing challenges.
An issue she repeated two years later when she “reintroduced” her oldest son, now identifying as a girl named Rebekah:
At the same time, our bright, sensitive, and empathetic child struggled increasingly with anxiety and, eventually, depression. We worked through various medical and therapeutic resources over the years to support him in his anxiety, trying to give him the best tools possible to thrive in the world as someone whose huge heart just feels things too much. Despite our best efforts, the anxiety and depression reached a crisis point this past year. We were all feeling pretty scared and lost.
This is not the description of someone, whether child or adult, who is in the position to rationally choose to permanently alter the course of their life. Jamie Bruesehoff ought to be ashamed. Instead, she’s celebratory and dancing around the state of New Jersey on some speaking tour victory lap.
She’s having the time of her life, traveling the country and attending speaking events. She’s never been more relevant. For a woman who desperately craved online attention, it looks like all her blogspotting has finally paid off—unfortunately this all comes at her child’s expense.
It would be impossible to list all of her speaking engagements, but you can head on over to her website to take a look for yourself.
Nationalist Review wholly condemns and disavows the transitioning of children and the use of gender hormones in minors. More so, we find it repugnant to watch these young liberals parade their children about on social media to earn attention and clout.
