Transgender Issues

18 May

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.”
And we agree. it is blackmail as the government is using a law that has nothing to do with bathrooms and gender identity to force its views upon public schools. There is no discrimination going on except by those forcing straight students to endure opposite sexed people in their private areas. It is the straight people who are being discriminated against not those who claim to be transgender. The latter people are deceived and using their deception to get what they want instead of seeking help to overcome their problem.
When an edict involves illegal and sinful motivation as support then the federal government has over-stepped this authority and demonstrates that it is not governing all the people correctly. When the president and his administration is misguided then it is up to the people to rebuke them not cower in fear because the president has spoken.
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.”
You do not follow. We do not let our leaders, whether civil or spiritual lead us to sin. Nor do we allow them to lead our children to sin or deeper into deception. We have to stand with God.
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.
Discrimination at the hands of those who do not want to follow the rules. They feel it is wrong to discriminate against them but see nothing wrong with discriminating against others. Of course we have spoken on how making a person use the bathroom that coincides with their physical birth gender is not discrimination but keeping everything sane and right.
The problem is not with those who oppose the transgender issue but with the transgender who thinks everyone must be forced to accept their deception. Read the article it is a good one.
#4. It Is NOT Objective, biological reality— See point #1.
The transgender person is not arguing for rights based on “feelings”, but rather on objective, biological, reality.
We are going back to the original article here and state that this is just not true. There is only one objective biological reality and it is not found in the psychological mess of a transgendered person’s mind. It is found in the biological parts that come with their bodies not with their supposed ‘gender identification.’ The objective biological reality goes like this: if you have a uterus, a vagina, eggs and other women’s parts then you are a girl. If you have a penis and an Adam’s apple and semen, etc., then you are a boy.
No amount of psycho babble will change this objective biological reality. The mind can be deceived, the body can’t. No amount of mutilation will change a boy into a girl or a girl into a boy for surgery cannot give egg production to men nor semen production to women. Also one may surgically alter their outside physical appearance to look like the opposite sex, but surgery has no power over gender identification and cannot change the genders of anyone.
Deception has infiltrated the transgender people and their supporters and it cannot be allowed to continue.
Instead of supporting the transgender people in their deception Obama and other administration employees should be looking at how to help them out of their plight instead of supporting their self-mutilation and forcing their deception upon their fellow citizens. The government is letting people down and failing to guide them correctly and that is why the Bible tells us to pray for our leaders. They are under attack and deception from evil that they cannot see or remove themselves. They need the hep of God.
So while you are forming your opinion and thinking which side you should be on, let’s not criticize and attack but go into our prayer closets and pray for our leaders so that these situations are successfully and properly defeated and do not rise again.
