Transgender Rights: One Side’s Sense of Fairness Hurts, Not Helps Women

Published

on

What do you feel when you look at this photo? I feel pity. Pity for the girl who’s being manhandled by a bigger, stronger girl who wants to be a boy. Pity for the girl who’s dissatisfied with how she’s made and is trying to remake herself. But mostly I pity the girl who, for the sake of fairness, is unfairly overmatched. If I saw this happening in person, my instinct would be to step in and stop it.fairness

Why is it happening? It’s happening because the party in power and a minority of Americans embrace an ideology that values “fairness” over rightness.

Look again at the photo. Does it look fair to you? It’s certainly not fair to female athletes whose dreams—and in some cases, bones—are being shattered for the sake of a misguided sense of fairness.

Let’s grapple with some biological realities. Male hormone therapy produces stronger bones and muscles. It also provides significant advantages in testosterone, which powers aggression. Testosterone produces physical advantages—just as performance enhancing drugs do. Look at the photo once more. Notice the size and strength disparity in the arms, shoulders and overall musculature.

Our cells are coded with gender-specific chromosomes—no amount of hormone therapy can change the code. All that changes is physical appearance and levels of strength and aggression. In short, hormone therapy produces masculine women and feminine men and, in women’s sports, unfair advantages.

In light of these scientific truths, is it fair to pit chemically- and physically-altered girls against other girls? If I saw my daughter in a mismatch like this, those sanctioning the mismatch would find themselves facing 185 pounds of fatherly fury. Fairness be damned.

Fair play

How’s this for fair: Create a separate competition for transgender athletes. We separate boys and girls in virtually every sport and have done so, commonsensically, for centuries. Why not give transgender athletes their own competitions and every fair opportunity to excel in their sports? Sociologists assign them their own gender categories beyond male and female—why not do the same for competition?

An obvious question arises: What if there aren’t enough transgender athletes to provide robust competition? This scenario is likely because biological transgenderism is exceedingly rare, but in the name of true fairness, isn’t it worth exploring? After all, sports dreams are at stake. So are bones. So is equality for women, ironically.

To our president and his party: Please stop pushing your version of fairness on us. You’re free to elevate it beyond virtue and into dogma within your ranks, but you have no right to force us to accept it and its dangerous detriment to our daughters and sisters. Same goes for locker rooms and restrooms. You’re not helping women move forward; you’re hurting them and setting them back.

To those who are trying to be something they’re not: God says you’re fearfully and wonderfully made. He created you in his heart before he created the world and everything in it. If you were born to be a woman or a man, it’s because that’s how he made you. He loves you deeply—as you are—so much so that he died for you.

Five Principles for Political Christians to Live By

The Bible is very clear in regard to the advice it gives Christians!

Published

on

There is a lot of debate about whether or not Christians should be involved in politics. I know there are some Christians who don’t think that they shouldn’t be involved at all, and then there are other Christians who are as involved as anybody else. The question, in my mind, is not whether or not we should be involved but how we should be involved and how we should live and act while we are involved. I believe that the Bible is very clear in regard to the advice it gives Christians in how they live their lives, and this includes includes how they engage with others politically. Check out the video below to see the five principles that every Christian should live by when they engage in politics. The points from the video are listed below the video.

Are we feeding ourselves properly to give us the optimal emotional and mental nutrition we need to perform? Is what we are digesting helping us create the fortitude and positive mindset to be successful but also to create a well balanced and peaceful way of living?

Superior Thinking!

If we are consuming negativity and toxic thoughts, how then will we shine? How then will we feel accomplished and complete? Are we not also to be examples to others? I like to tell my students of all walks of life, “We can’t go anywhere positive with a negative mindset!” – SD Powell

How about we scrape off that plate and replace it with encouraging, motivating and a more productive way of loving and living to change our mental trajectory for overall success. Success for our families, friends, our careers and our country….

What We Feed Our Minds Determines our Appetite

– Tom Ziglar

I have to say that if you aren’t reading or listening to books to help you evolve, I would encourage you to do so! I was on a run listening to Tom Ziglar’s Book “Choose to Win”. When the thoughts from what I was reflecting on compelled me to share in this video.

Checkout His Book “Choose to Win“.

I know for me I have to discipline myself and I need all the help I can get sometimes. So, for my spiritual well being I rely on my faith in God. It’s made all the difference in my life.

John 3:16 God Loves You and He has a plan for you!

Alright, Everyone. That’s all I got for you today! Stay tuned, evaluate your appetite on all fronts and go be a great American today!

Evolve Your Skills, Evolve Yourself..
