The Left cries about the war on woman constantly while ignoring the real war on women such as child brides, sex slaves and honor killings by their beloved Muslims. They also ignore the danger they are putting real women in by promoting transgenderism as some legitimate lifestyle and a severely confused biological man who should in no way be allowed to display is depravity around women and young girls. Transgenderism has taken off in this past year and if it continues unabated it will continue to destroy womanhood, especially Biblical womanhood.
My friend Crystal from Conservative Push Coalition had this to say about homosexuality in general but it also applies to transgenders as well in my opinion:
I think we all sin. Our sins are just different. The problem with homosexuality is that it gets out there like a lifestyle, in other words, a sin that needs no forgiveness, which isn’t true.
Now sit down because you won’t see this on this site again but I am going to defend gays. Gays are legitimate. That is how they truly feel, they are not trying to become something they are not. And just because they are a man that likes other men doesn’t mean they are trying to become a woman.They like being a man, they are comfortable being a man. While I think gays have issues going on of their own, perpetuating a fraud is not one of them. At least, the ones who are clearly out.
So what is the difference between gays and transgenderism? Gays have no desire or inclination to change their biological sex, transgenders do. Gays may say biology is irrelevant in marriage but they don’t say biology is irrelevant in all private moments of one’s life, transgenders say even going to the bathroom should be an uncomfortable experience for those who don’t buy into their ideology! And that is just the start. Being gay is about loving whom you want, transgenderism is about trying to redefine a whole biological sex based on your opinion. It is much scarier and detrimental than homosexuality by itself, at least that is my opinion.
Gender is not something constructed by man nor can it be replaced by simply adhering the opposite sex’s reproductive organs to your body. To say so is demeaning and demoralizing to women everywhere. [I am concentrating on men becoming women because that happens with more frequency than vice versa]
ALL HUMAN BEINGS—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a
beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose. https://www.lds.org/topics/family-proclamation?lang=eng
That is from former President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Gordon. B. Hinckley. It clearly states that each person has a divine nature and destiny and that gender is part of that. We cannot separate them simply because we want to. When you say, “I feel like a woman.” that is both dishonest and demoralizing to women since you could not possibly know what it feels like to be a woman. It shows a world view revolving around your feelings, “I feel…so it must be true.” While feelings impact the way we see the world, they should not be the primary source for how we see it.
According to the great John Locke, “A wise and omnipotent God, having made people and sent them into this world:
…by his order and about his business, they are his property whose workmanship they are, made to last during his, not one another’s pleasure: and being furnished with like faculties, sharing all in one community of nature, there cannot be supposed any subordination among us, that may authorize us to destroy one another, as if we were made for one another’s uses, as the inferior ranks of creatures are for our’s.
It follows immediately that “he has no liberty to destroy himself or so much as any creature in his possession, yet when some nobler use than its bare possession calls for it” (II. 2. 6). So, murder and suicide violate the divine purpose. So if suicide is forbidden, even by modern law (at least the attempting of it is, the actual successful completion of it they can’t do anything about.) is also not the mutilation of yourself just as wrong? The more we buy into this feeling based fantasy of womanhood, the more we lower the status of actual women.
How does it lower the status of women, though? It lowers the status of women because women become nothing more than a collection of body parts. If women are nothing more than a collection of various reproductive organs then we are no longer human beings and can become targets for those who would hurt us and do so within the confines of the law.
A prime example of this is the current public bathroom legislation that seems to be popping up everywhere. But it is not just bathrooms that this false identity of transgenderism is creating harm for women. It is in other safe and public places like women’s shelters. In fact, in Canada in 2014, a man was jailed indefinitely after claiming to be transgender and assaulting several women in a battered woman’s shelter.https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/sexual-predator-jailed-after-claiming-to-be-transgender-in-order-to-assault The one place where they should have been protected from such things is where they end up being violated. The women in the shelter are there because they have endured such behavior from those closest to them in their lives and to have to relive another episode in the very place they went to in order to escape it is inexcusable.
The more we codify this mental illness, the more harm we will bring towards real women and children. It is not up to us as a society to validate those who have these delusions. For the people who constantly talk about rape culture, this in no way helps to alleviate that problem, it only aggravates it. It is time for people to stand up and say we will not cowtail to people’s dysfunctions and the safety of my wife and daughters are more important than your so called right to present yourself as a woman. It is time for men to be men and that is especially true if you are a transgender “woman.”
