Women in refugee camps

Women in refugee camps

by Kaeley Triller Harms

In refugee camps across the globe, there is an increased demand for adult diapers.

Is this because of some fetish? No. It’s because the females in these camps know that to walk to the bathroom alone at night puts them at a dramatically increased risk of rape, and they would rather sit for hours in their own excrement than risk being violated. Read the rest of this entry

Boys in girls’ locker rooms

Boys in girls’ locker rooms

by Hands Across the Aisle

“As I argued in my piece, only the most deranged sorts of people could possibly watch that footage and feel sympathy for the boy over the girl. All sane and decent people understand that girls deserve privacy and protection when they are getting changed and using the bathroom. Am I implying that everyone on the opposite side from me on this issue lacks sanity and decency? Yes, I certainly am. I will go even further and say that what they support is abject evil, and they are without excuse. There is no good argument for allowing boys into the girls locker room. There is no compelling reason for such a policy. All of the good arguments and compelling reasons belong to the side that seeks to protect young girls from this kind of abuse.

Biological males in women’s sports

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Biological males in women’s sports

by  Emily Kaht

Last weekend, I completed my third full marathon at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. For the first time, I used running as a protest. The whole marathon, I carried a flag protesting the inclusion of biological males in women’s sports. As my flag says, a woman is an adult human female. Period. A male who “identifies” as a woman is not a woman. A male without a penis is not a woman. A male with lowered testosterone is not a woman. There is no compromise here. Permitting males to compete in women’s sports is unfair and has already stripped numerous girls/women of their rightful spots on the podium. Read the rest of this entry

I DO NOT HATE TRANS PEOPLE

Here is something I read on Facebook.

I DO NOT HATE TRANS PEOPLE

by Kaeley Triller Harms

Apparently, though I’m nearly five years into this, I need to issue yet another disclaimer:

I DO NOT HATE TRANS PEOPLE.

I hate the ideology that gets its hooks in them and convinces them that their aggressive self-hatred is normal. Read the rest of this entry

On earth as it is in Heaven

Matthew 6:9-13 contains the prayer known as the Lord’s Prayer.  It contains the phrase “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  Is this part of the prayer being answered today?  It appears to me that most of the earth is rebelling against God’s will rather than following it.

The Bible tells us that God created the world and everything in it in six days and we should acknowledge him as our Creator.  Humans have come up with the belief that the earth developed by natural processes over billions of years and that life arose by a process of evolution.  This belief is such an integral part of our culture that even many Bible believers accept it and interpret the Bible in a way that accommodates the belief that the earth is old.  I once believed in an old earth and reconciled this belief with the Bible by believing in the gap theory.

Transgender – the other side of the story, part 2

Recently I published a post called Transgender – the other side of the story  in which I listed some sites of organizations that opposed society’s support of people who wish to change their genders.  Since then I have learned about another such site.  It is called help4families.org.

Help4Families acknowledges that the struggles gender-confused people endure are more than psychosomatic; they are real and they need to be addressed seriously, with godly compassion. But God’s compassion cannot—must not—be divorced from His perfection and His sovereign, righteous rule. Just as Jesus concurrently displayed God’s compassion and righteousness (John 8:2-11), so must His followers (Galatians 6:1-2; Ephesians 4:15; Jude 1:22–23).

Transgender – the other side of the story

There is a lot of news about transgender people in the media today.  Most of the stories support the belief that some people are really of the opposite gender of the bodies they are born in and we need to support their decision to live as their “real” gender.  Among other things this means they should be allowed to use the restrooms and dressing rooms of their choice and not be be limited to using the ones assigned to their physical gender.  Anyone who objects is condemned as being transphobic.

Although we live in a culture which believes we should affirm transgenders by allowing them to live as they choose there are still some who disagree with this.  Here are some sites that reject the popular views. Read the rest of this entry

Transgenders and same sex marriage

The Bible teaches that marriage is between a man and a woman and that in God’s eyes a same sex “marriage” is not a marriage at all.  This is simple and is something that anyone can easily understand.  At least it would be simple if it weren’t for the current transgender movement.  A transgender person is one who perceives himself to be of the opposite to his biological sex.  Some transgenders go far as to have sex change surgery which makes them appear to be of the opposite sex.  When one of these people decides to marry the question of what is a same sex marriage becomes unclear.

Suppose a man and a woman decide to marry.  If one of them was born as a member of the opposite sex and had a sex change operation is their marriage legitimate or is it a same sex union?

Suppose two members of the same sex want to marry but one of them was born as a member of the opposite sex.  Is their marriage a same sex marriage or do they have a right to get married according to God’s laws?

Each cell in the human body contains 23 pairs of chromosomes.  One pair determines the sex of the individual.  Each chromosome is either an x or a y chromosome.  A person with two x chromosomes is female, while one with an x and a y is male.  Sex change operations have no effect on a person’s chromosomes.  If a same sex couple marries and one of them is transgender, they are technically of different genders, so the marriage is permissible, but the cisgender member of the marriage is engaging in sexual activity with a person who is outwardly of the same gender, so he is violating the prohibition against sexual involvement between members of the same sex.

The transgender movement has raised a lot of questions about sex and marriage that we didn’t need to think about in the past.  I don’t know the answers to these questions but I believe Christians should be aware of them so we can find answers and be prepared when we encounter these situations in real life.

A solution to the bathroom problem

There is a controversy over whether transgender people should have the option of using either the men’s or the women’s restroom.  One side sees it as giving transgender people the rights others enjoy; the other sees it as a matter of protecting personal privacy.  It isn’t likely this disagreement will ever go away.  Perhaps the best solution would be to eliminate our present restrooms and replace them with single person restrooms.  This would be a very expensive solution, especially when it comes to converting buildings that already have men’s and women’s restrooms, but it seems to me that it is the only way to satisfy the competing demands for access and privacy.
