From an article recently posted on the Christian Post:
Eight year-old Jack Wilson was on a weekend visit to his grandparents’ house in mid-December 2016 when he informed his grandmother that his name was really Jacquelyn.
“Grammy, my name is Jacquelyn,” he complained as he walked into the room and sat down at the kitchen table for lunch. He had just received Christmas presents from friends of his grandmother addressed to “Jack” and was visibly upset.
“Why is that your name?” Amanda Wilson, his grandmother, asked in response as she set a plate of chicken and rice in front of him.
He replied: “Because I’m a girl now.”
“What makes you think you’re a girl?” she inquired.
“It’s my gender,” he said.
She pressed him: “Well, what’s a gender?”
He stared back at her, puzzled, and said: “I don’t know.”
Amanda Wilson hasn’t seen her grandson in two years and each day she longs to hold him in her arms and hug him but can’t. Her daughter, Marissa, and her spouse began believing that little Jack was really a girl around three years ago and because Wilson doesn’t agree they’ve cut off all contact with her, no longer speak, and don’t allow her and her husband to see him.
Shortly after Jack turned 7, Marissa and her spouse excitedly announced on social media that Jack was a girl and they couldn’t wait to start him on puberty blockers in two years when he turned 9. They posted a picture of Marissa’s spouse and Jack outside a children’s hospital that is home to one of the 55 transgender clinics now operating in the United States.
The social media account Wilson’s daughter had was deactivated and Wilson no longer has the exact words of her daughter’s happiness about starting Jack on puberty blockers but she still has the picture.
At Wilson’s request, The Christian Post is using pseudonyms in this report and has changed or removed identifying details in order to maintain her anonymity. Although she was baptized as a Methodist, Wilson is not a subscriber to any particular religious faith but chose to speak with CP because she felt it was important that the voice of a grandmother is heard as more parents speak out about their heartache of losing their children to what many are calling a transgender “social contagion.” She has reached out to many secular journalists to no avail.
In 2008, Marissa, who lives just outside of Portland, Maine, was in a relationship with a man, became pregnant and gave birth to Jack in 2009. That relationship ended soon after Jack was born and just a few years later, when Marissa was 26, she came out as a lesbian and started dating a woman. Approximately 16 months later, they married in June 2013. Seven months into that marriage her spouse came out as transgender and changed her name to a male name and started taking hormones. The couple separated last year and now share custody of Jack.
What do you call this if not child abuse?
As mentioned in a post last week, as Christianity has been systematically removed from western civilization so has any moral imperative to be honest. We have seen this most notably in politics and science, to name just two examples. Without any higher moral impetus to tell the truth, money and ego have pervaded the science community and resulted in a reproducibility crisis, amongst other things. Another area that has been hit hard, because the science community is unwilling to tell the truth about many things, is more extensive research on “uncomfortable” topics.
There are many verboten topics in science including IQ with respect to race, sexuality, and honest climate science. Within the past few years there has been a concerted effort to pervert sexuality. They tell us it is on a spectrum, that there are more than 2 genders, and that homosexuality is inherently natural. Before I go further I should say I do not have a dog in this fight, other than wanting the best for our society. I am on a journey to seek the truth, and not turn away from it regardless if it makes me uncomfortable or reveals hard truths that are painful to swallow.
I don’t know if homosexuality is natural. Clearly it cannot be the norm, or else we would not survive as a species. My guidance on the matter comes from the Bible. But we need to do far more research into the topic. While many people are convinced that it is entirely genetic that is highly questionable. There are some studies, though hard to confirm in this day and age, that have studied identical twins. One of them is straight and the other is not. If this is true, then it clearly cannot be entirely genetic.
What’s the point of all this? The point is we need better studies on sexuality in general. We need to understand how one becomes homosexual. We need to better understand the underpinnings of what makes one think they are transsexual. And we need to be honest and truthful about the results that we find. Going further, if what we do find suggests it is something mental or points to mentally unstable people, perhaps we need to reconsider who should be allowed to be able to adopt and raise children.
Again, this is an uncomfortable topic and I am merely searching for the truth. If we can’t even talk about the subject we have a major problem as a society. I don’t want to have to say that we shouldn’t allow some people to be able to adopt children and others not. But if there is consistent evidence that points to negative outcomes for the children being adopted, the entirely innocent party in this, the topic needs to be revisited. This to me is a clear cut case of child abuse. At least one, if not both, of the parents have serious issues, and they are foisting these issues onto an innocent child. There is no way in hell this kid thinks they are a girl on their own. It is being placed in their heads by the parents. And no. It is not brave. It is not admirable. It is disgusting. They are poisoning this child’s brain with this vile garbage. Socially (and soon unnaturally) engineering him into being what THEY want to see him become, not with the best interest of him in mind. Can we please use some common sense and call this what it is, rather than kowtow to the sick fantasies of the parents?
