The Left — including the “Christian” Left — reflexively latch onto and champion the world’s latest God-mocking trends, and the “trans” movement is no different. I saw the systematic gay/lesbian indoctrination of kids coming more than 10 years ago, but I have to admit that I thought the average person would draw the line at the “trans” thing. After all, what decent parents would let their 5 yr. old son be told in public schools that he may not really be a boy? But here we are.
I also figured that 99.9% of people would realize how ridiculous the core idea is. But I forgot the mindset of countless people: If they don’t find contentment in Christ, they will search for it somewhere else: career, drugs, alcohol, clothes, sex, gambling, anything. So many kids are confused and depressed, especially when growing up in broken homes, hooked on porn, having low self-esteem by comparing their lives to the highlight reels of others on social media, normal life challenges and more.
And the impact of “social contagion” is frightening. These sad cases think that this is the thing that will make them happy, even though it is guaranteed to bring them more pain. Before it was an appropriately embarrassing thing to be “trans,” but now it is considered cool.
The only good news is that these moral freaks are now pitted against a different kind of moral freaks, the radical feminists. And the wicked “Christian” Leftists, who aren’t strong on facts, logic or Jesus, find a way to champion them both. Stacy McCain sums it up perfectly.

Young people are becoming seriously confused by the transgender cult. Or perhaps the causation works the other way, and confused young people are magnetically attracted to the cult belief that, with the “treatment” of synthetic hormones and surgery, they can escape their adolescent woes by “transitioning” into the opposite sex. Feminists have identified the factor of social contagion in what they call “rapid-onset gender dysphoria.” Through the influence of peers, and also through online recruitment by transgender cultists, many teenagers are quite suddenly convinced that they were “born in the wrong body.” In a matter of months or even a few weeks, an otherwise healthy teenage will develop an obsession with “gender transition” and demand that parents not only accept their new transgender identity, but often threaten suicide unless parents support them in seeking hormone “treatment” immediately. This kind of emotional blackmail is part of the transgender cult’s ideology, as activists claim that anyone who opposes them is effectively sentencing teenagers to death by denying them acceptance and “health care.”
There will always be an element of craziness in society, but we shouldn’t encourage or fund it. What a tragedy. Satan is evil, but he isn’t stupid. And this plan to destroy individuals, families and cultures simply by giving messed up kids a fantasy about why they are “really” messed up and that it could “fix” them is truly an evil genius move. Of course the “Christian” Left ran to the front of the line to support this wickedness. The question is whether those who know better will be brave enough to oppose it.
