Last week South Carolina State Representative Stewart Jones filed legislation that, if it were to pass, would ban gender reassignment surgery and/or treatment for minors. Jones was inspired to take this action by the James Younger case in Texas, where the seven-year-old Texas boy’s mother was going force him to undergo gender reassignment without the consent of the father, who said the boy does not even believe himself to be a girl. Also just last month, Ginny Ehrhart, a Republican state representative in Georgia, proposed to make it a felony to perform gender transition surgeries on minors. Such efforts are in response to the left-wing and majority of Democrat lawmakers’ attempt to ultimately destroy American society by legalizing child abuse via the promotion of transgenderism for children.
The transgender ideology in itself stands in complete contradiction to the known science on biology and physical reality, and sadly, this mental distortion is now being thrust onto children as part of a sick, demented political agenda to appease the most lunatic fringe elements of the political spectrum. In September the American multinational toy manufacturing company Mattel announced its is intention to “retool” its products in order “to align with fast-advancements in representation, inclusion and diversity,” such as a “gender-neutral” Barbie doll.
Rather than the overtly female Barbie for girls or super-masculine GI Joe for boys, the maker of the ever-popular figurines’ latest creations show no signs of gender identification — they are six inches of androgyny that can be styled as male, female, both, or neither. Each comes with a choice of short or long hairstyle options and a selection of different outfits.
The new dolls have been welcomed by GLAAD (formerly the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), an LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) advocacy group. “So many children and parents never saw themselves represented in toys and dolls, but this new line raises the bar for inclusion thanks to input from parents, physicians and children themselves,” the group tweeted. Their argument is that purchasing for children a gender-neutral Barbie, for example, will immunize them against the evils of stereotypes for life. As one can fathom, this is right in line, as already indicated, with most Democrat lawmakers — not excluding some Republicans — such as presidential-candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Last month CNN sponsored a LGBTQ town hall event in California; a wide a range of topics were discussed, including “sexual-political-correct” advancing gender equality through legislation, how to deal with religious objections to gay marriage, and public anxieties about receiving blood transfusions from gay people. The heartbreaking moment, however, occurred when an innocent nine-year-old asked Sen. Warren how she would make life easier for transgender children like himself (biologically a girl): “My name is Jacob [bolded for emphasis], and I’m a 9 year old transgender American. My question is ‘What will you do to make sure that kids like me feel safer in schools, and what do you think schools can do better to make sure that I don’t have to worry about anything but my homework?”
Warren applauded “Jacob” and said: “Oh, I like that question, Jacob! Let me start by saying I want to have a secretary of education that who both believes in public education and believes in the value of every one of our kids and is willing to enforce our civil rights laws. We’ve had some secretaries of education who’ve been better, and we’ve had one that’s been a whole lot worse. Her name is Betsy DeVos. So, when I’m president, she’ll be gone.”
The liberal ideology can pretend that transgenderism is a “third sex,” a man pretending to be a woman does not make him a woman, or vice versa. Such “biological subjectivism” is being thrust upon us via shaming tactics of political correctness. Naturally, politicians are not the only ones to blame for this agenda. Ultimately, the parents and the surgeons who perform the criminal procedure to alter children’s sexual physiology, even as early the age of five, are even more guilty.
Tyler O’Neil, writer for PJ Media, recently noted that a growing number of states are starting to take similar action against radical transgender ideology being imposed on children. Matt Carpenter, deputy director of state and local affairs at the Family Research Council, told PJ Media, “I think in 2020 we will see other states enter the fray and attempt to protect minors from undergoing unproven, harmful, and irreversible, decisions that will dramatically impact their health every day for the rest of their lives.” GOP lawmakers in Texas, Georgia and Kentucky are also calling for laws to prohibit minors from receiving gender transition-related health care such as puberty blockers and hormone replacement therapy.
While laws or judicial sentences can help prevent to put a halt to this latest phenomenon, it will take more to eradicate the latest advocacy of sexual exploitation of children, especially in that the U.S. government promotes the LGTBQ agenda, as manifested by hanging their rainbow flag during the month of June at American embassies and consulates. Aside of not voting for candidates, such as Joe Biden, Senators Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren who would advocate the sexual exploitation of children, there must be an understanding and teaching of the laws of nature by which God created us male and female, which both politicians and church leaders must reinvigorate.
As the Vatican’s Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline Cardinal Robert Sarah said: “Identity is not something we give. God gives it to us.” The West, he said, arrogantly “refuses to accept” that identity.” “The great issue are the economic and media leaders who contaminate the environment concerning the identity of the human person.” This is, he said, “the rejection of God.” He added that should focus on “the unprecedented anthropological and moral crisis of our time which demands that the Church should assume a greater responsibility and commitment to propose its doctrinal and moral teachings in a clear, precise and firm manner.”
