A Little Louder For the Folks in the Back

Dear Friends, because I keep running into this thinking ALL OVER THE PLACE, I'm going to say it a little louder for folks in the back.
Your child learning that transgender people exist WILL NOT make them transgender. It won't even increase the likelihood that they will be transgender or gender non-conforming.
Your child learning that gay people exist WILL NOT make them gay. It won't even increase the likelihood that they will be anything short of 100% straight (whatever that is 😂).
Your child learning that IT IS OKAY to be transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, gay, bisexual, pansexual or anything else will not morph them into any of those things.
Do you know what it WILL do?
It will make them better friends and neighbors to people who are LGBTQ or whose loved ones are LGBTQ. I know my kid would really appreciate that.
It will reduce the likelihood that they will be ashamed or confused about who they are and how they are feeling if they happen to be LGBTQ.
It will introduce to them the rich and beautiful diversity of this world we live in filled with people who look, act, believe, love, and live in a million different ways.
Friends... gender identity and sexual orientation aren't contagious. They are not confusing ideas that you must keep out of pure little children's heads. The more we teach our kids from the. very. start. that there are all different ways to live and love... the less we'll have kids unintentionally (we're not even going to talk about the intentional messages right now!) shaming or insulting other kids about who they are or what their family looks like simply because they haven't been exposed to the idea that not every family looks like their family.
Thanks from this kid, our family, and all the other LGBTQ families out there.

  1. I implore you as a fellow sister in Christ to rethink your ways. Our Lord and savior does not make mistakes. He blessed you with a beautiful son and it is not our place to change what God has made in his own image. You are teaching your son that God makes mistakes and that he himself has the power to change that. “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:13-14‬ ‭

    Please do some soul searching because this may lead many other astray from the word. They will think if God made this mistake then other things in the bi le must be wrong. NO. Gods word is what we as christians must live by.

    Please listen to scripture that tells us “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    There is help with gender dysphoria and it is never to late. Matthew 19:26 says Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." with Christ by your side you can get through this.

    We have to love our children and bring them up in the ways of the Lord. I pray you atleast read this and open your heart to the Holy Spirit who helps us all in our afflictions. We must only remain obedient to Gods word no matter how hard it may be at times. As a fellow sinner I know this life is not easy. I will keep you and your beautiful family in my prayers. May God bless you!
