I want to be clear, we should be as loving as possible to people experiencing gender dysphoria. This is not about hating anyone, as Christians, we are forbidden to hate even our enemies. Love isn’t just about 100 percent acceptance. For example, if someone with anorexia comes to you and says that they want you to drive them to get a tummy tuck, you would take one look at a 90-pound 5ft 6 in woman, you would know that this person does not need a tummy tuck, they need help from a doctor that can help them deal with the false image that they have of themselves. The loving thing would be to take them to a doctor that can help them with thier real issues. Accepting the person’s belief that they are fat, when they are actually overly skinny could actually kill them, well-intentioned or not. When a person’s mind says something that the actual body rejects, it isn’t the body that needs to be corrected, it is the false idea in their mind that needs correction.
Don’t take my word for it, please watch this video featuring Dr. Michelle A. Cretella, MD, FCP is the President of the American College of Pediatricians. She is a board certified general pediatrician with a special interest in adolescent mental and sexual health.
I say again we must love these people, but that doesn’t mean that we should encourage them to get healthy body parts removed, and it does not include giving a man in a dress the right to frighten everyone in the locker rooms, and bathrooms across the world.
