Dear Editor: The major media and the Obama Administration have ignored the experts in the transgender (men who think they are women and women who think they are men) debate. They only listen to the most powerful lobby in the Democratic Party the homosexual lobby(LGBT). Transgender expert Dr. Paul McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital said, “transgenderism is a mental disorder that merits treatment and sex change is biologically impossible.”
Dr. McHugh is author of six books and reported that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had sex change surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgendered people. This high rate of suicide showed that no surgery will solve their problems. Dr. McHugh said people who encourage sex change surgery are promoting a mental disorder. The last census showed only 89,667 have had sex change operations in the U.S. Dr. Ted Broer said, soy baby formula has the female hormone estrogen in it and should never be given to boy babies. Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch says, “states can’t ‘insist’ a man is a man and a woman is a woman, if person feels otherwise.”
This is a issue for states to decide. Texas said they will not change their restroom policy. The Alliance Defending Freedom, www.adflegal.org said no law requires public schools to have gender neutral restrooms and federal law authorizes schools to have single-sex restrooms and locker rooms. I don’t like the bully tactics used by the major media and the Obama administration on the transgender issue and especially the way they are forcing the issue onto children who don’t need to be involved in this adult debate.
Studies show good news for children. Dr. McHugh said studies from Vanderbilt Univ. and London’s Poutmon Clinic of children found children who had expressed transgender feelings, over time 70 to 80 percent spontaneously lost those feelings. If you have children who have feelings that they are a different gender tell them you can’t trust feelings and send them to a great Christian Counselor. Anorexics say they’re fat when they’re objectively not and they’re called “mentally ill” and are given needed therapy.
Transgenders say they’re male or female when they’re objectively not and are called a protected class by Obama and those disagreeing are given therapy.
Dr. McHugh is correct sex change is biologically impossible. No matter how you feel, no matter how much surgery you have, no matter how many hormones you take, you can never change the biological fact that every single cell in your entire body is branded XX or XY. The XX and XY chromosomes are a biological fact.
One of the curses God allows on evil countries is madness/insanity according to Deuteronomy 28:28. In Romans 1 it declares that a nation that rejects God over and over will become vain, useless, futile or foolish in their thinking. Despite claiming to be so wise and so smart the nation will become so foolish in their thinking that they will accept spiritual deception and accept spiritual lies and false teaching.
Feelings aren’t dependable. One man said when he was much, much younger he felt like a man trapped inside a woman’s body and then he was born. Being born solved this man’s identity problem. Being born again would solve everyone’s identity problem or crisis.
The end result of transgenders trusting their feelings is usually suffering, insanity and death by suicide. The transgenders say they were born with feelings that they are the wrong gender. The good news is they can be born again and become God’s child. Peter tells us in the Holy Bible to be God’s child we must be born again by the word of God. Jesus is the living word of God which lives and endures forever. If we are born again we live by faith in Jesus and His word (Romans 1) not by feelings. In the Christian life you obey then you understand and you believe then you see. The end result of living by faith in Jesus is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, self-control and eternal life!
