10 thoughts on “Contrasting Transgenderism with Christianity

    1. This was pretty insightful, Fred. And as the Twitter post suggests, some evangelicals have bought into all this garbage. But Carlson, who is Episcopalian, has it more right than they do. Go figure.

  1. When will we recognize that Transgenderism is a mental disorder and provide the necessary help to those that are infected with it? It is sad that our political forces are taking rigid positions that block required treatments.

    1. It used to be regarded as a mental disorder, John, although I am not sure how often it was treated. You raise some good points. The problem is that, once other aspects of the LGBTQ crusade began to be accepted and celebrated, the “T” part immediately followed.

  2. Gender Identity Disorder was removed from the DSM several years ago and replaced with Gender Dysphoria. This change further focused the diagnosis on the gender identity-related distress that some transgender people experience rather than the mental illness that caused it. So it’s no longer considered a disorder by the mental health “experts” involved in those types of decisions. If you’re trans and screwed up in the head it must be from something else because thinking you’re the opposite of what you are is now “normal.”
    The DSM made a political decision to normalize abnormality.

    1. They did this also with homosexuality, Jaycee. The politicization of the leadership of the mental health professions (and medicine in general) is a huge problem. They bear responsibility as much as the Supreme Court and the corrupt media, if not more…

      There ought to be accountability.

  3. I should have explained that DSM is The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) and is a guidebook widely used by mental health professionals—especially those in the United States—in the diagnosis of many mental health conditions.

    1. You are absolutely right, Jaycee. There is a certain amount of subjectivity in deciding what qualifies for a mental health condition because they establish (or some might say, invent) CRITERIA that determine whether a person has a given condition. The criteria can be manipulated, or the names of the condition themselves and what they represent. They can decide what is abnormal, and what is not.

  4. Excepting brain injury by trauma or injury, virtually all mental health diagnosis/treatment is subjective. There is no lab test to determine mental illness, or to judge the success of treatment. The mental health doctor must rely solely on feedback from the patient as to whether he’s “better” or not.
    A very vague field, indeed, and subject to changes and interpretations by “experts” at whim.

    1. And those factors can be exploited in highly politicized situations like homosexuality and transgenderism, because political players within the mental health professions get to sit on the panels that make these decisions.
