Christians smearing transgender kids

Malisa Phillips
American Family Association is a certified hate group for good cause. they promote the falsehood that gender identity is capricious or impulsive. Today I received one of their Action Alerts titled “Obama's Jesters: Let boy use girls' locker room or else!” Their primary complaint is described as:
The Office for Civil Rights in President Barack Obama's Department of Education (DOE) has determined that a Chicago area high school must leave the choice to openly use the girls' locker room up to a 15 year-old student who has male genitalia, but self-identifies as a girl.
Just in passing “DOE” is the Department of Energy. The correct abbreviation is “ED.” But I digress. Tim Wildmon, AFA's president and idiot-son of the founder, describes the tyranny over several paragraphs. Then we get to this:
The entire transgender idea is focused on sexual anarchy. Natural man and woman biology is ignored and people are told they can be whatever gender they “desire” on any particular day.
The intended inference is that a child might arbitrarily decide that “today, I think I will be female.” Wildmon leaves open the possibility that the kid might change his mind tomorrow. Does anyone really believe that being transgender is a conscious decision? Does Wildmon? One wonders how they would want their own child treated if he or she turned out to be gay or transgender.

Christians have their share of intersex children as well — just like the general population. That should serve to challenge the idea of a simplistic binary. Sadly it does not. Aside from the fact that these pernicious purveyors of hate are impervious to medical science they lack compassion and empathy. Perhaps they should be more … Christian.
