Satan made you transgender?

"Humans are made in the image of God - male and female. Satan, our enemy, hates God, and wants to deface God's likeness wherever he can. We are all sinners, deeply impacted by our own sinfulness and enmity toward God, by the sins of others and by life in a fallen world. Gender confusion is one example of human brokenness... Individuals are male or female. People can't 'transition' from one to the other. I haven't seen a third human gender discovered, and humanity is not 'multi-gendered.'"

-- Focus On The Family blogger Jeff Johnson in a post bemoaning the recent uptick in transgender related news stories.

But God is intersexed - we're made in his/her image - both male and female - so he/she must be both male & female.

So there are multigendered beings - God. Why does he hate God?

"Humans are made in the image of God - male and female... Individuals are male or female."

Wait! I'm confused. Not about my gender. But are we male AND female, or not???

To the best of my knowledge, no one has discovered a third gender, but scientists have discovered that few, if any, of us are entirely male OR female -- with the possible exception of Barbara Eden.

Of course, God didn't tell the Israelites this millenia ago, so it must not be true. Right?

I wish to thank Mr. Johnson for clearing this up for me. I knew it was not my fault & now I have someone to blame, namely Satan. Thanks, Jeff, for naming the real culprit.

Uh, religious dude, science alone acknowledges at least 5 biological genders in the human species. Male and female is how we've structured gender, not God.

I've often wondered why the God Fearers worry so much about other people's sexual and gender identities. If they have such inside knowledge of what their God knows why don't they ask him/her what the winning metalottery ticket will be? Or which way the stock market is going?

Oh wait, I forgot. There is absolute proof of people being multi-gendered yet there is NO evidence of their God. Supernatural beings with no evidence are called myths. As with Odin, Zeus and all the other Gods of the past that even most children know are best explored in comic books.

While I strongly support the right of people to believe whatever mythology makes them comfortable when their myth steps on my rights I have a problem.

Male and female, homo and hetero are how we try to explain human sexuality to morons and you don't even get that right.
BTW God's sick and tired of you pea-brains defining him/her/it.

The sheer willful ignorance demonstrated in that published statement is absolutely breathtaking. How do you argue with someone who's mind is so manifestly closed that the only way to get through to the human underneath is by way of a 2x4? I've met 4-legged animals with more intelligence than what is on display there.

From the Urological Sciences Research Foundation (contains medical photos NSFW)

During the early 1970s, Dr. Julianne Imperato, a Cornell endocrinologist, conducted an expedition to the Dominican Republic to investigate reports of an isolated village where children appearing to be girls turned into men at puberty. In the village, these children were known as 'guevedoces' (literally, penis at 12 years). Also known locally as machihembras ('first women, then man'), these pseudohermaphrodites were documented serially in the following photographs published originally in the American Journal of Medicne (Am. J. Med. 62: 170-191, 1977):

In an isolated village of the southwestern Dominican Republic, 2% of the live births were in the 1970's, guevedoces (actually male pseudohermaphrodites). These children appeared to be girls at birth, but at puberty these 'girls' sprout muscles, testes, and a penis. For the rest of their lives they are men in nearly all respects (see photograph 6 below). Their underlying pathology was found to be a deficiency of the enzyme, 5-alpha Reductase.

People who change sex naturally cause Theogians' heads to implode.

Unfortunately, that means that many fanatical religious groups think that the fact that such people can exist should be suppressed. One way of doing that is to kill those people, as their existence is intolerable, and contradicts dogma. Then they can pretend they never existed at all.

While Trans people are accused of being misled by Satan, Intersexed people are sometimes accused of being the Spawn of Satan, not human. While putting to death Intersexed newborns - and often their mothers too, for having congress with the Devil - is usually only practiced in parts of the third world, the difference between the persecution there and in the west is a matter of degree, not kind.

Every morning I awake eagerly to read an inspiring story about transgender culture and life. Usually there is only 1 if any among the stories about gays or lesbians on this site. There are times when I am excited about what I read and learn and sometimes I'm compelled to leave a response. But why do we waste time, effort, energy and emotion on crap like this. Sure, its a great heading that gets your attention but hey, there are people who will read this and actually draw negative reactions and feelings for trans folk, even to find fact in the garbage.

Today, I was disapointed and inspired.....
Let's continue to use our platforms to educate and help people.

Well Satan looks like I might hang out with you this Chirstmas afterall and talk about why you continue to ruin my friends life for making them the way they are.

Even though supposedly made her (male transitioner) the way she is and society doesn't understand what she is going through but by golly I am going to fix this. Taking tou out Satan would bring world peace wouldn't it?
