The Christian Response to Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Cover and Transgender Identity – The Atlantic:

“Some conservatives have made mocking remarks about Caitlyn Jenner, but their attitudes obscure deep, meaningful questions about the meaning of gender.”

    1. What an outlook! Two things, you say, “I will not make a difference in the end.”
      I’m glad you see that!! Lol!
      Next, If you wish for another group of people to accept your acceptance of something useless to them, maybe you ought to try to accept their position to not accept… You claim Christians are wrong yet you perform the same behavior.. I’m gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and hope you see the error in your hipocrisy.

  1. Interesting questions, perhaps, but ideologically loaded. The Southern Baptist version that trans people are just experiencing a a natural state of fallen-ness and alienation that goes to show how much they need Jesus is akin to the extreme Radical Feminist take (e.g. Rachael Ivey: http://deepgreenresistancesouthwest.org/2014/10/26/end-gender-revolution-reform/) that transgender people should re-evaluate the social causes of their dysphoria and become gender abolitionists, allies, and radfems instead. It simultaneously expresses disapproval of genderqueer identities while using those identities as leverage to win recruits (and both sides, unfortunately, support their own variations of conversion therapy to achieve such goals).

    Having said that, I am a Christian myself, and I know many LGBT+ Christians who feel (as I do) that we become better people in finally taking the decision to be honest with ourself and the world about our sexuality or our gender identity. I don’t expect the Vatican or the SBC to start agreeing with us any time soon, though.
