Growing body of research rejects transgender movement
The latest contribution to the debate is ‚ÄúWhen Harry Became Sally,‚ÄĚ a just-released book by Heritage Foundation senior research fellow Ryan T. Anderson, who critiques the transgender movement on the grounds of metaphysics, medicine and public policy.
Contrary to the transgender movement‚Äôs central claim ‚ÄĒ that ‚Äúgender identity‚ÄĚ determines whether someone is a man, a woman or something else ‚ÄĒ Mr. Anderson said the only rationale for determining an organism‚Äôs sex is ‚Äúby that organism‚Äôs organization with respect to sexual reproduction.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúApart from that, all you have are sex stereotypes,‚ÄĚ Mr. Anderson said Wednesday at a Heritage Foundation gathering. ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs no other objective standard for identifying the sex of an individual.‚ÄĚ...
Gloria Steinem and Betty Fridan - advocated single women not marrying, being promiscuous and abort often and with joy. These like minded women became college presidents. Judges and married like minded men ( who became president), and pushed the agenda to the end of the highway. Now all they have left is childhood sex change experimentation, luckwarmed spoiled milk religion called Progressiveism , abortion pills and gun confiscation. They , like us , are judged by God, and that should always give us . That is who holds us responsible.
You are quite right, IE. There is a whole segment of society that outright rejects the Lord and His counsel, commandments, warnings, and grace, opting for a different set of truth instead.
When I first began to have saving faith, I had some wrong ideas too, like believing in evolution. The Lord opened my eyes to the truth of and in His word. He slowly changed me. May He do the same with these deluded people who embrace what really is untruth in their efforts to gain self-autonomy -- both of which are really lies.
Acts4:24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: 25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? 26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. 29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. -- The holy Child Jesus was seen as Christ !¬°!¬°Before !¬°!¬° he left the womb..

But of course. Some people refuse to let facts get in the way of private or public policy, particularly when it limits their acceptability, sphere of influence, or potential actions.
That there is no objective standard is part and parcel of the underlying assumptions of those championing the LGBT movement. Truth itself, as I've pointed out perhaps too often, lies dead in the streets (Isaiah 59). Objective standards require a common truth. But seeing as there is no common truth in Western society or even common recognition that there is truth that can be known, there is no basis for an objective standard.
My point is that the problem here is deeper than deluded people choosing lifestyles opposed to the created order. Because they have defined their own truth, no matter if it's actual true, arguments like the one reported fall. It's Psalm 2 being played out.
