There have been a couple of news stories lately that have made just about every sane person scratch their heads. It defies belief that grown people can think in these ways.
Minnesota Democrat argues for menstrual products in boys’ bathrooms: ‘Not all who menstruate are female’
The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Sandra Feist, Democratic-Farmer-Labor, argued in opposition to the amendment on “practical, financial, social, and emotional” grounds.
“There are a lot of schools that are moving towards gender-neutral bathrooms, and if we add ‘female,’ we might become obsolete very quickly,” Feist said.
Second, not all students who menstruate are female,” Feist continued. “We need to make sure all students have access to these products. There are obviously less non-female menstruating students and therefore their usage will be much lower. That was actually calculated into the cost of this.”
According to Feist, non-female menstruators “face a greater stigma and barrier to asking for these products.” She also claimed many schools have already started stocking menstrual products in all bathrooms without issue. (source)
Then there is this
Transgender men can get pregnant. Here’s what they wish more people understood.
Transgender men — people born with female anatomy who live and identify as men, sometimes undergoing gender-affirming care through surgeries and/or testosterone and sometimes not — can get pregnant in the same way anyone with reproductive organs can, explains Obedin-Maliver. That includes penetrative sex with someone with sperm as well as through assistive reproductive technology (ART), such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Due to the fact that trans male pregnancies are vastly under-researched — not to mention their lack of visibility — the process is clouded with misconceptions. One of the biggest, Obedin-Maliver says, is the notion that trans men on testosterone are unable to conceive. Though more studies need to be done on how testosterone influences ovulation in general, taking the hormone does not negate one’s capacity to get pregnant. (source)
The fact that grown people actually think in these ways and accept such thinking tells you that evil is working overtime right now. It is working overtime because we are coming close to the end of time.
More and more people are becoming deceived through rights over right and wrong, and misinformation from ‘experts’ or lawmakers as exampled above. We understand that the secular world is trying to redefine the term gender to mean what ever they want it to mean in this confused age. From Psychology Today:
All humans are born with biological characteristics of sex, either male, female, or intersex. Gender, however, is a social construct and generally based on the norms, behaviors, and societal roles expected of individuals based primarily on their sex. Gender identity describes a person’s self-perceived gender, which could be male, female, or otherwise.(source)
However, this attempt to redefine one’s gender identity is wrong. There are only 2 genders and you are born as one or the other. If a person’s self-perceived idea of their gender identity is other than what they were born as then those people are in need of serious psychological, mental, and spiritual help.
We do not change what is right to appease those who have faulty thinking. We work with those with faulty thinking to get them to understand and accept reality. A transgender man is still a woman. Nothing will change that fact.
Her body is made up of organs specifically designed for and installed in the female gender. Those parts are a portion of one’s identity. A transgender man who menstruates is still a woman as only women can menstruate.
They have not changed who they are no matter how many body parts they alter or how they dress. Everyone knows and knew what a tomboy is and everyone also knows and knew that a tomboy was a woman, female, or girl.
Just because they acted like men did not change their gender identity. They were still women and functioned in the same way all women have functioned since the beginning of time and will continue to function till the end of time.
Believing one is not a woman does not change that fact. The same goes for those men who think they are women. Nothing you do will change the fact that you are a man. We have studied ancient societies, and documents for over 2 decades now, and not one ancient society has produced anything that changes these facts.
The Bible says there is nothing new under the sun, (Ecc. 1:9), and that verse tells us that the ancients had the same problems with deceived people who thought they were something they weren’t.
There is nothing in any ancient record that says anything other than what the Bible describes about gender or gender identity. Hypatia may be the closest to being the most famous ancient transgender there ever was.
Her father, Theon, refused to impose upon his daughter the traditional role assigned to women and raised her as one would have raised a son in the Greek tradition; by teaching her his own trade.(source)
But every manuscript and article written about her says the same thing- she was a female philosopher. The Bible has 19 verses using the terms male and female. You can read them all at this link.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Gen. 1:27)
And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.(Gen. 6:19)
And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, (Mt. 19:4)
Believing that you are something other than what you were born as is a sign that you are not accepting life the way it is. The people who call themselves transgender and those that support them are not dealing with reality or the truth.
For the latter, they are not showing any true love for those boys, girls, men, and women, by keeping them in this delusional state. In fact, they are the ones doing great harm to those misguided and deceived souls who pretend to be something they are not.
No one is doing them any harm by trying to bring them back to reality. That is what mental institutions were for when they existed years ago. They were there, staffed with doctors, in hopes of bringing many of the mentally unstable back to reality.
Sometimes they were successful and sometimes they were not. I believe, and we are doing this from memory, the late Billy Graham said that if people realized that mental illness was a spiritual problem, most of those mental institutions could be emptied when they applied spiritual answers to the plight of those locked up in those institutions.
Transgender and other LGBT preferences are the result of spiritual problems. Not from God but from evil. But since most of the unbelieving world does not believe in or accept evil exists, they continue to harm people who could have been healed.
Instead, they attack God and blame him, which is wrong since it is not God who brought corruption and mental illness into this world. Point the accusatory finger in the right direction and you can see where the source lies and know how to deal with these problems.
Transgenderism, homosexuality, bisexual behavior, and other perversions are not from God nor accepted by him. The problems the LGBTQ people face are not because of the Evangelical Christian,.
Instead, they have problems because the unbelievers on their side of sin are, one, stopping them from getting the right help, and two, encouraging the LGBTQ people to pursue sinful behavior.
The Evangelical Christian is trying to help them solve their problems by bringing the truth to this community and helping them find a way out. Blame evil and unbelievers, not God or Christians for the troubles the LGBTQ face.
One of those troubles is thinking that transgendered men are men and transgendered women are women. Only the unbelieving world would give that type of thinking a pass and a lot of support.
The church has to keep telling the truth to all who will listen. There is no one else to do this task. God will use your work if you do it right and in obedience to his commands and word.
