Tell Governor Christie to keep transgender ideology out of public schools!
One of the most exciting moments for any pregnant couple is finding out the gender of their baby. By the eighteenth week, it is obvious via ultrasound whether the couple is having a little boy or a little girl. The ultrasound technician doesn’t do a brain scan of the baby or ask the baby which gender the baby identifies with – she simply checks to see which reproductive organs the child has!
Sex is determined at the point of conception and it does not change. However, some lawmakers in New Jersey are determined to force transgender ideology on school children. Among them is Republican Governor Chris Christie!
Last week, Governor Christie signed S3067 that requires the state education commissioner to immediately draft rules to force schools to accept and celebrate transgender ideology! Teachers and other students will be directed to refer to “transgender” children by whatever pronoun that child feels corresponds to “their gender identity.” In addition, children can choose to use whatever bathroom or locker room they prefer.
Please take a stand against transgender ideology in the schools and tell Governor Christie no! A Republican governor championing such a harmful policy is unprecedented and must be protested. Voice your disapproval to Governor Christie now!
Children should not be subjected to transgenderism in order to satisfy the new sexual ethic.
Through celebrating the transgender ideology, we are seriously hurting our children! Some are even advocating that children as young as 12 begin chemical transitions if they are confused about their gender! Children, young people, and adults are mutilating their bodies and our culture is telling them that it is healthy and good. This is tolerance for the sake of cowardice in the face of the new sexual orthodoxy.
These harms of transgenderism led the American College of Pediatricians to issue a statement that transgender ideology harms children.
“Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V).”
Additionally, “[r]ates of suicide are nearly twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries. What compassionate and reasonable person would condemn young children to this fate knowing that after puberty as many as 88% of girls and 98% of boys will eventually accept reality and achieve a state of mental and physical health?” (emphasis added).
Governor Christie must take note. Forcing transgenderism on children is a form of child abuse. Teachers should be protecting and nurturing children, not pushing them towards a dangerous lifestyle!
Many on the left have turned sex and sexual expression into a kind of god. According to this dogmatic religion of self-expression, there must be complete conformity. In the face of this sort of coercion, it is imperative that Christians stand as a unified voice against the culture and work to protect one another against this aggressive and harmful worldview!
Please voice your opposition to Governor Christie’s cowardice now!
