For those who adhere to the Judeo-Christian worldview, we know that one of the earliest creative acts by God was the creation of mankind. And this was a very specified creation. As we read in Genesis 1:26-27: “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
Thus mankind as male and female was and is how God designed us to be. There are not three sexes or ten sexes or a hundred sexes. One does not simply choose whatever sex one wants to be. We are born male or female, and our DNA does not lie about such matters.
Sure, we know that because we now live in a fallen world, one in which everything is tainted by sin, things are not fully as they were meant to be. The image of God still remains in every single one of us, but anomalies can occur. Some might be born missing some fingers, but they are still human beings.
A very, very small number of people might be born with what we call an intersex condition, where there is ambiguous genitalia, chromosomal imbalances, and so on. These can be found in conditions such as Turner Syndrome, Klinefelter’s Syndrome, etc. This is extremely rare however and has nothing whatsoever to do with the radical homosexual and transgender activists seeking to destroy human sexuality.
Even in intersex cases we still have the fundamental reality of a male or female sex. Those with the intersex condition do not constitute another, third sex, but are afflicted with a genetic disability, just as a Down’s syndrome person has a genetic disability.
And note that I am using the word “sex” here, not the questionable term “gender”. For more on this, see the excellent article by Stella Morabito: thefederalist.com/2016/05/31/why-you-should-stop-using-the-word-gender/
I will speak more to her piece shortly, but here I want to say we are in an all-out war with the social activists and the sexual revolutionaries. They want to destroy human sexuality altogether. They want to convince us that being male and female is simply a social construct, and we can be whatever we want to be.
I have reported before about the various lists of what is out there: dozens and dozens of options can be chosen from. If Revlon has 177 different shades of lipstick to choose from, the number of “genders” and “gender identities” and “gender orientations” is right up there.
In a recent article I reported on those claiming there are 112 genders along with 71 orientations: www.billmuehlenberg.com/2016/03/09/gender-moonbattery-off-the-charts/
The war of sex differences is upon us big time. So who is behind all this miserable madness? All the usual suspects can be mentioned: loony Laborites; goofy Greens; secular humanists; cultural Marxists; the PC thought police; the sexual anarchists, the gender benders, and so on. But behind them all is the god of this world: Satan.
If God made us male and female, then Satan will do all he can to convince us this is a myth, and human sex is infinite and fluid and totally a matter of choice. That is because everything God favours and endorses, Satan hates and seeks to pervert and ruin. So human beings of one of two sexes, human sexuality, heterosexual marriage and family – all as God designed them to be – are all under horrific attack by Satan and his minions.
So every day now we find this madness being forced down our throats by the zealots and activists. The real worry is just how nutty these guys are getting. And I choose my words carefully here, because we have just been told by the sexperts that we can no longer use the word “guy”. Yep you heard that right.
An ABC TV news report on this last night was quite staggering. They dragged out one “expert” after another telling us how evil and harmful it is to call people “guys”. Typical ABC. The press ran with this story today. One of them puts it this way:
OK then, let me say this without any hesitancy: these guys are complete fruitcakes.
These guys are whackos. These guys are complete nutters. There, I said it, and I am happy I said it.
So arrest me already. And other more sensible sorts have also pooh-poohed the idea:
The war on human sexuality is getting more and more mind boggling by the day. So let me return to the Morabito piece “Why You Should Stop Using The Word ‘Gender’.” She begins:
She reminds us where the term came from:
I have said it many times now: social engineering is always preceded by verbal engineering.
And we sure have this here big time guys.
