The binary gender distinction: male and female, is constantly under attack by proponents and allies of the LGBT movement.
Whether it is gay marriage, attacking the nuclear family, promoting sexual deviance or distorting gender norms, The LGBT vanguard are constantly undermining the traditional family as the most important building block for society.
History illustrates that intact families provide a stable society. The increase in social pathologies and the anti-social behaviour we see on a more prolific level today, is inextricably associated with the breakdown of traditional families â a mother and father who are devoted to one another and committed to raising their children in a safe and loving environment.
Over and over again, you hear in the justice system about those who commit the worst crimes, coming from broken families, where they were neglected and abandoned by their parents, and so fell into the auspices of street gangs or into foster care where they were abused. If they had a loving father to protect them, many children would have escaped the abuse and emotional damage.
Now, the latest trend by the LGBT movement is the ''blurring of gender'', we have parents not wanting to 'impose' a gender on their child before their child is old enough to decide for themselves (i.e. opening them up to confusion).
One article I stumbled across was about a Presbyterian man who decided to omit the term ''Father"" from their nightly prayer, in order to not assign a male pronoun to God, as it was deemed sexist. In my view this sort of drivel is becoming more common.
The binary gender norms exist for good reason. For example, being a male and having a sturdier and more robust physique is clearly part of God's design for the man to be the protector of the household. The father is meant to ward off unfit young men who might pursue his daughter for the wrong reasons. The father must protect the weaker sexes under his care.
The father also teaches his sons how to handle their aggression without resorting to violent extremes, for instance, cues are taught by wrestling on the lounge floor. These behaviours require masculine gender traits: confidence, risk-taking, assertiveness, stoicism, swiftness, calm-headedness... etc., attributes ascribed to the man that assist him in his role and duty to family and community.
There are many important roles that traditional gender norms entail in the behaviour of men and women, and children emulate these in development. So if we do away with the gender norms and roles then we will be essentially confusing children â and opening them up to alternative and unnatural gender identities which fall outside of God's plan.
When men adopt excessively effeminate mannerisms and behavioural traits, we intuitively know that there is probably an influence on sexual attraction and behaviour associated with this.
Hence, as gender norms are changed in society, and we see more gender nonconformists, we will also see an increase in bi-sexual and homosexual behaviour. Surveys already show that the latest generation possesses a higher inclination to bi-sexual attraction compared with previous generations. (Well at least they admit it)
This gender blurring will lead to a gradual queerification of society (unsure of who you are â gender identity), one, where eventually pederasty and bi-sexual dabbling will be normalised once again, like in ancient times. This is not what God intended for the family. Paganism will fill the void where Christianity eloped.
