Note to Bruce Jenner (no, not Caitlyn – you are Bruce, and always will be): you are obviously a very troubled individual who needs counsel, therapy and professional help. But you certainly do not need celebration, endorsement and praise for your misguided move to become female.
Indeed, you should not be buying into the lies of the gender benders. You are not a female, and you never have been a female. You are male: how in the world do you think your two daughters entered into the world? They sure did not come about by two women messing around.
And you should be ashamed of your recent photo shoot. Sure, you made a lot of money out of it, but how many people are you harming in the process? I refer to the July issue of Vanity Fair. As one report says,
Bruce Jenner has starred on the cover of Vanity Fair as a woman in a stunning shoot for Annie Leibovitz and has revealed her name as Caitlyn Jenner. In the first look at Bruce as a woman, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star poses demurely in an ivory corset, it is the first time the public has seen the former Olympian as a female, following the announcement that he was transitioning from a man to a woman earlier this year.
His immediate family will be among the big losers. As Denise Shick writes:
America is watching intently as you seek to transition from man to woman. So are your daughters. As a daughter who watched her own father make the same choice, I plead with you to reconsider. My father’s revelation to me that he wanted to become a woman sent my life into a tailspin.
As I read an article titled “Kylie Jenner ignores Bruce Jenner,” reportedly humiliated by his transition, I sensed that your daughters are about to enter a time of loss, anger and humiliation much like the tailspin I endured. And, had it not been for the persistent love of God and a good man who became my husband, I suspect I’d still be in that descent—or dead.
Please hear my heart when I try to express how difficult this must be for your daughters. They are losing a father. No matter how they might try to cover up the grief they are feeling, it’s there. It isn’t enough to tell them you’re still there for them, just in a different body. Memories will be all that your daughters retain of their father—and that’s not enough.
Walt Heyer knows all about the pain and regret of sex change. He writes:
Bruce Jenner and Diane Sawyer could benefit from a history lesson. I know, because I suffered through “sex change” surgery and lived as a woman for eight years. The surgery fixed nothing—it only masked and exacerbated deeper psychological problems.
The beginnings of the transgender movement have gotten lost today in the push for transgender rights, acceptance, and tolerance. If more people were aware of the dark and troubled history of sex-reassignment surgery, perhaps we wouldn’t be so quick to push people toward it….
Transgender clients who regret having taken this path are often full of shame and remorse. Those who regret their decision have few places to turn in a world of pro-transgender activism. For me, it took years to muster the courage to stand up and speak out about the regret.
I only wish Dr. Paul Walker had been required to tell me about both reports when I consulted him: the Hopkins study showing surgery did not alleviate severe psychological problems, and Ihlenfeld’s observation of the continuing transgender unhappiness and high incidence of suicide after hormones and surgery. This information might not have stopped me from making that disastrous decision—but at least I would have known the dangers and pain that lay ahead.
Let me tie in two related matters here, as I am currently in North America. The first concerns a terrific Christian worker who actually knows Jenner and has been involved in athletics and sports ministry for quite some time. I refer to Steve McConkey who I just recently had lunch with in Madison, Wisconsin.
This blurb tells us a bit more about him: “Steve McConkey is the President of 4 Winds Christian Athletics (4 WINDS). Steve and his wife started working in world-class track and field ministries in 1981, with ministry offices in Oregon, Texas, Minnesota, and now Madison, Wisconsin. With an emphasis on defending the Christian faith, 4 WINDS expanded to all sports in 2014.” He has just posted an article on Bruce:
With his Vanity Fair front page promotion, sports hero Bruce Jenner, now supposedly Caitlyn, will open a floodgate of immorality that will affect Americans for generations to come.
Jenner’s decision will be exploited by the media and the education system throughout the world. Confused people will now have an adult transgender as a hero.
4 Winds Christian Athletics President Steve McConkey stood up against the International Olympic Committee in 2003 when they allowed transgenders in the Olympics. He was the only sports person publicly addressing the issue.
Steve knew this decision would open the floodgates for immorality. Currently, thirty-three state high school associations allow boys to compete on girls teams, and vice versa. Now you have the Jenner situation.
Also, he has publicly stood up against the International Olympic Committee, US Olympic Committee, NCAA, and USA Track and Field for caving into the gay agenda.
“We are living in a time where athletes will be monitored for what they believe,” states Steve McConkey. “Athletes who believe homosexuality is a sin could be penalized by governing sports organizations.”
Steve has been slandered online by many, including BuzzFeed from New York City. On February 4, they had an article saying conservatives like Steve cause transgenders to commit suicide. BuzzFeed has a reach of 100 million people.
“Christians are on the verge of persecution that they have never experienced before in the United States,” says McConkey. “The Supreme Court’s same-sex decision this month is important, but already states are pushing for homosexuality. We need to pray and stand up even if we are in the minority. Only a revival can reverse what we see.”
And all this gender bender moonbattery is not just negatively impacting on confused individuals – all of society is being adversely affected by this madness as well. As I happen to be in Vancouver right now, let me just mention what idiocy is being proposed here. As one report states:
After successfully lobbying provincial and federal governments to make it easier to amend sex designations on key identity documents, transgender Canadians are now pushing for another change: to abolish gender references altogether from birth certificates.
The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal has agreed to review complaints filed by the Trans Alliance Society and a handful of transgender and intersex individuals, who argue that doctors should stop assigning the sex of a baby based on a quick inspection of the baby’s genitals at birth when there’s a possibility they may identify under a different gender, or no gender, years later.
“Birth certificates (may) give false information about people and characterize them in a way that is actually wrong, that assumes to be right, and causes people … actual harm,” said Morgane Oger, a transgender woman in Vancouver and chair of the society.
Australian Babette Francis offers this commentary on such coercive utopianism:
So an obstetrician is a bigot and heterosexist if he or she announces to happy parents: “your baby is a boy” or “it’s a girl”.
Then there’s the move to abolish terms like “husband” and “wife” from marriage certificates in favour of “partner” – not even the gender-neutral “spouse” – thus reducing marriage to the level of cohabitation or even a business relationship!
As I said, the bullying has already started, and it is not in our schools. The “butcher, the baker and candle-stick maker” as the nursery rhyme goes, who have been driven bankrupt are mute witnesses to the bullying by LGBTIQ activists. Limerick poet F.R Duplantier sums it up best, his poem is headed “Spite”.
We have oodles of gay friends who bake,
Who could make us a fabulous cake:
To claim discrimination, We need dissimulation –
And a Christian to burn at the stake.
Yes all this is not only a war on biology and reality, but it is a war on the God of biology and reality. When we reject the created order which a wise and loving God has given us, we screw up everything. We destroy human sexuality, we destroy individuals, we destroy families, and we destroy society.
This war on gender is really a war on God. And it seems to be getting worse by the day. We must of course pray for tortured souls like Bruce – they are very mixed up and in need of help. But we do them no favours by glorifying them and adulating them, and supporting their reckless delusions and decisions.
