It’s become obvious – I’m old school. I admit I’m culturally slow; a happy dinosaur when it comes to science and morality. I grew up in a draconian-era when a man was a man. He knew what he was and what was expected. He opened doors for ladies, protected them from harm, and loved them because it was the right and Biblical thing to do. It was accepted he was physically stronger, though not necessarily smarter.
He was taught manners, knew manners, and did manners; otherwise, the old man would paddle his rear end. He was taught to respect and value a woman not as inferior but as an equal in God’s eyes. He knew her worth, dignity, and honor were created by God just as was his. If a lady was dishonored, men would throw down and quickly resolve the issue. To think or do otherwise was unacceptable.
Men didn’t run to safe zones, hide behind masks, or steal athletic championships from women. They weren’t snowflakes melting whenever met with disagreement; many were warriors having fought in Europe, Africa, Korea, or Vietnam to defend our freedom. They were masculine, strong, and brave. Radical feminism had yet to begin the emasculation process that brings us to this discussion.
My science class taught that males are chromosomally XY and females XX. Not one time in our Dick and Jane elementary reading books was Dick, Jane, or Sally’s gender questioned. Even Spot got it. No one thought that gender was changeable because it was natural and scientific law which had been accepted worldwide in all cultures since the Creation.
Blast into 2019 and there are at least 112 genders. We have officially moved into the “identify” stage of mankind. Pick what you want, identify as that, and by golly, poof!, you’re it. A white couple can be black; you can even identify as a dragon or elf. Most certainly, you can be abimegender, adamasgender, and ambonec, among others. There’s even an LGBTQA+ Dictionary to help you track the fluidity of the identities.
If anyone questions a said identity, they are some kind of hate-mongering, fear-laden, phobia-ridden, moronic, MAGA-loving, Midwesterner. Your momma’s ugly, your daddy’s an adulterer, and your dog has blood-sucking ticks. All short for, I can’t prove any of this scientifically, but I can publicly destroy you. And, know that I will, because you can’t disagree with me and get away with it…you hurt my feelings.
What has America become? Now it’s okay, and it’s common, for biological males to identify and compete as females in athletic competition. Truly, I have compassion for any gender confusion that may exist. Psychiatric help should be available to anyone suffering from such confusion. But the fact is, a person who presently has or was born with male genitalia isn’t a female and shouldn’t be allowed to compete against them. It’s wrong and unfair to those biological females who have worked hard to perform against their biological peers in athletic competition.
Even former professional tennis player Martina Navratilova agrees. She stated, “A man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organization is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires…It’s insane and it’s cheating.”
She was quickly rebuked as “transphobic” and removed from the LGBTQ advocacy group Athlete Ally. At one time, Navratilova was considered the pioneer for gay rights because of her publicly avowed lesbianism. Now, because she calls truth, truth, her services are no longer needed. The radical left is so blinded by their beliefs, they’ll eat their own.
We live in a day where one can be fined or jailed for using the wrong gender pronoun. Your character, reputation, and livelihood can be ruined if you challenge anything regarding gay rights or gender identity. Regrettably, facts and science don’t matter, and truth isn’t relevant. Mark my words though, a day is coming, it’s called the Day of the Lord, that will set everything straight.
Until then, speak truth with compassion and boldness. Dietrich Bonhoeffer stated, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Our children and grandchildren’s future depend upon us standing up to the destructive lies and deception so prevalent in our culture. If we don’t, what freedoms will remain? In 20 years, will your grandchildren need to have their potential spouse DNA-tested to know what true gender they’re marrying? Think about it!
Ronald Reagan summed it up best: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
There is no freedom without Truth. We can’t afford not to stand up for Truth, liberty, and righteousness. Without any of these three, America will no longer be the nation we’ve come to know and love. There is hope and that hope is in God. May we cry out to Him to intervene in this hour with grace and mercy. In the meantime, may our courage be as that of the real men who hit the Beaches of Normandy.
