The department store Target has not done anyone any favors nor has Obama and his administration as they continue to support and promote transgender issues. We are going to try to look at the key points in several articles here, hopefully it will be new ground and not rehashing old arguments we have already dealt with.
#1. Psychology Is Not The Authority— http://www.patheos.com/blogs/revangelical/2016/05/13/what-you-refuse-to-know-hurts-thousands-evangelicals-bathrooms-and-gender-identity.html
It is becoming widely known and accepted that gender identity is not determined by one’s biological sex, but by a wide range of biological and psychological factors. The American Psychiatric Association has noted that “identifying as transgender does not constitute a mental disorder.”A recent study conducted by Boston University Medical Center found that there is, in fact, “a biological etiology for transgender identity.” In other words, we are gradually coming to understand that gender identity is not necessarily contingent upon ones genitalia, and that those who identify as transgender are not flawed or disordered, but rather experiencing something natural and biologically driven.
Several things are wrong with this statement. First, the Psychiatric Association and the Boston study were done by deceived, unbelieving minds. Their results are not close to the truth and have no real impact on the believer’s opinion on this topic.Second, notice the contradiction in its wording. One sentence says biology is not involved while another says it is. Since genitalia is biological, what we have here is two organizations cherry picking which biological aspect they will choose to form their opinion.
It is quite impossible to say that one part of biology is a factor while another isn’t. We must ask, how is missing a womb and other women’s parts still make a man a woman or a woman missing a penis and an Adam’s apple still make that person a man? All of biology forms the gender identification of a person.
The third problem we find with that statement is that why is it that these organizations fault the genitalia part of gender identification and not the psychological conclusion by the person claiming they are a different gender other than what their biological make up tells them? Why is the real and actual biological evidence at fault and not the psychological conclusions of the person?
Clearly thee organizations are quite biased and came to a conclusion based upon whatever influences guided their work not on reality and real fact.
#2. The Government Oversteps— http://edition.cnn.com/2016/05/12/politics/transgender-bathrooms-obama-administration/index.html
There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said. “This guidance gives administrators, teachers and parents the tools they need to protect transgender students from peer harassment and to identify and address unjust school policies
This is not a federal issue and while federal governments are allowed to govern as they see fit, this edict is an over-reach which can be slapped down because of the sinful elements involved with its proclamation.
“The guidance makes clear that both federal agencies treat a student’s gender identity as the student’s sex for purposes of enforcing Title IX,” the administration said Thursday.
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick accused the Obama administration of “blackmail” and called the guidance “social engineering.”
Now that the Obama administration has announced that public schools must allow boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms – meaning, in effect, that teenage girls must undress and shower in the presence of biological males – it is time to say, “With all respect to the authority of the federal government, we refuse to comply with your mandate.”
Yet the Obama administration now wants to force all public schools to embrace these “realities,” at the expense of the rest of the student body.
The transgender person is not arguing for rights based on “feelings”, but rather on objective, biological, reality.
