The Sights Are Set On Children

The sexual revoluton that began in the 1960’s has reached its precipice. At the behest of the White House and woke elites, America’s children are now squarely in the sights of the cultural, sexual revolution.

“As a child, nobody would have pegged me as a future transitioner; I was never particularly masculine or even tomboyish. I hated sports, roughhousing, and getting dirty. I liked Barbies, playing dress up, and getting toy makeup sets for Christmas.”
 
This is just the beginning of Helena Kerschner’s story of gender ideation, transitioning to a male and then undergoing a de-transitioning back to her God-designed, female self.
 
Sadly, Helena’s story is all too common in 2022. According to the Williams Institute, 0.7% of adults aged 18-24 identify as transgender in the U.S.
 
And as the number of gender dysphoria cases continue to rise, President Biden’s administration has pledged its full support to ensure that children can begin receiving “gender affirming care” across the country.
 
According to the Office of Population Affairs, there are four types of gender-affirming care: social affirmation, puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and “gender affirming” surgeries. The report, flagged by the White House, notes that three of these can be used at any age, early adolescence or during puberty.
 
Social affirmation includes “adopting gender affirming hairstyles and clothing, name, pronouns and restrooms.” While Social Affirmation bolsters the community acceptance of young children, there are other gender affirmations that go much deeper. Puberty blockers are another form of this “care” that uses certain hormones to stop the natural pubertal development in adolescents.
 
The next two forms of “care” listed are even more serious than the previous. Hormone therapy is the practice of injecting testosterone into a biological female and estrogen into a biological male in order to reverse the chemical balances experienced since puberty. Helena Kerschner details this process in her de-transitioning story.

“The anger started as a smoldering anger at first. I found myself feeling more irritable, less able to put up with the little things that bothered me about other people. I was uncomfortable with my newfound tendency to get bent out of shape at everybody so I started isolating myself, trying to hide this awful person I thought I was turning out to be. I didn’t make the connection between this and the testosterone, I just thought I was a bad person. I didn’t feel like being around people, and when I was, I felt so unlike myself that I didn’t know how to relate to them. Even five years after the fact, I still feel like this experience has damaged my self esteem and social capabilities in a major way. It definitely changed me as a person.”
 
“Gender affirming” surgery is by far the most gruesome category of this “gender affirming care.” Females can have their breasts completely removed to create a “male typical” chest in a procedure commonly referred to as “top surgery”. This category of “care ” also includes surgery on the reproductive organs and genitals, or “bottom surgery”.
 
When addressing this issue on Transgender Day of Visibility, the President told parents that “affirming your child’s gender identity is one of the most powerful things you can do to keep them safe and healthy.”
 
I couldn’t agree more with President Biden’s statement. However, his view of gender affirmation is quite different than the view held by Christians across the nation. The position of the White House also directly opposes a plain view and interpretation of Scripture.
 
King David, in Psalm 139 states “Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
 
God has formed each one of us in His image from even before our conception. And yet we see far too many adolescents and teenagers caught in the abyss created by social media outlets like Tumblr and TikTok, inundated with messaging that crushes their self-worth, self-esteem, and possibly their future wellbeing.
 
The White House’s support of these drastic medical practices, along with the vocal opposition to Florida’s Parental Bill of Rights legislation begs the question, Why are the sights being set on our children?”
 
There is a growing section of society that believes it is okay to talk to children in preschool through third-grade about sex, gender identity, and other topics that should never be discussed with young, impressionable minds.
 
Our society and the history of humanity has been built on the fact that “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Gen 1:27)
 
The easiest way to undermine the biblical, cultural values in our country is to completely reject the very image of God. If the Imago Dei is undermined, it becomes easier to separate the created from the Creator.
 
The Church must take a stand on the basic principles of Genesis 1, and we must defend children as the heritage from the Lord and the fruit of the womb that they are.

Our children should never be caught in the crossfire of the sexual revolution. As the woke elitists continue to push their agenda on children, it’s time for you to take a stand.
