Trump administration may eradicate transgender recognition
"The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law," the N.Y. Times' Erica Green, Katie Benner and Robert Pear report.
What's happening: "[T]he Department of Health and Human Services is spearheading an effort to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans gender discrimination in education programs that receive government financial assistance."...
WP; May the Lord speak truth & life to your son, as He would reach down into his life. That would bring on Godly brokenness, through Godly repentance, that he would plead with Christ to have mercy on a fallen sinner. Who needs the arm of the Lord to bring change of a heart & mind that only Christ can do, in setting the captive free & indeed amen.

My son is transitioning to being ‚Äú female ‚Äú. We all deal with this issue differently. To me, the son I raised has died. But, I will not give into his demands to be called a she, to refer to his new name or adhere to his demands. Simply put, my son has died and I will take time to mourn, yet the emotional toil is too much, I wish my son no harm, but, pray he may realize how merciful God is and how short life is and our consequences reach into eternity.

I would rather say they drive themselves crazy trying to act like and be something they aren't. I call it "Ontological Dissonance." Any real or imagined slight feeds the excuse that persecution is the reason they feel bad.
Speaking from sad experience, Transgender people are woefully mentally ill. Since the failure of mental health professionals is now to elevate the chronically mentally ill are ‚Äú born with‚ÄĚ trait, I for one applaud this hopeful decision and do hope real help can be provided.
At last, some sanity on this topic. Using a biologocial definition stops in its tracks the concept of psychological gender and the erroneous concepts of gender fluidity.
At the root of transgenderism are several unbiblical concepts. All of them fail those who attempt to support them.
The first is that the god who created them made a mistake whereas the True God makes no mistakes.
The secomd is that they as individual people have the power to be their own gods. But there is only One God.
Finally, as their own gods, they feel they have the right to make up their own rules for living based on what they themselves want. The One True God gave us His standards and expectations, in which we all fail and continue to fail since the Fall, and requires Himself to save us through the Second Person of the Godhead. But this does not absolve us from needing to become sanctified through the Holy Spirit's work, which brings us into closer and closer conformity. And it does not absolve them from coming to Jesus Christ in faith and repentance, turning away from this and other sins.
Let us check ourselves lest we use their logic in our own lives and dishonor our Lord.
