GENDER NUETRAL BATHROOMS
Antonio Baldovinos | Family Matters
It’s finally here.
We looked at the sexual moral crisis in society as something at a far distance; in someone else’s neighborhood, someone else’s country and someone else’s issue.
It’s here at our doorsteps.
When I was 15 years old I went to a Billy Graham Crusade in Minneapolis Minnesota. At the end of the event, my mother and sister went to the bathroom and I stayed outside of the girl’s bathroom waiting for them. As I stood outside, I noticed a guy going into the girl’s bathroom. It was a man posing as a woman wanting to satisfy his voyeuristic desires. I started to yell inside the bathroom! Remember, my mother and sister were in there and this pervert was in there. He came running out. I chased him down the halls and a police officer saw the chase and joined me in capturing and arresting of this man.
Even as I write these words, schools in Canada and different cities in America are considering dangerous and irrational laws that impose unfair and potentially dangerous burdens on the vast majority of citizens, all in name of helping a tiny number of deeply confused individuals.
When will we learn?
To allow this in our schools is a guarantee of trouble making in public bathrooms and locker rooms, imposing of “gender neutral” on our loved ones. It is an experiment in social madness, and it is completely without justification, no matter how much we care about men and women who struggle with gender identity issues.
Think about this: An individual’s self-identification is the sole measure of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, not the gift of their gender given by God at birth.
All school-aged children – of any age from Kindergarten on up through high school – are free to determine for themselves who they are. For example, a five-year-old boy could make up his own mind that he is not a boy, but a girl. A ten-year-old girl could do the same thing, or a fourteen-year-old boy, etc. Not only that, but a child could identify as a boy one day, a girl next week, and then as neither one or ‘neutral’ today. (they’re are calling this gender fluidity) The guidelines make no mention at all of an appropriate age at which a child might make this decision.
This is only the start for greater problems. Just a couple days ago in Seattle “A man undressed in a women’s locker room, citing a new state rule that allows people to choose a bathroom based on gender identity.”
What kind of lunacy is this?
“How could any adult possibly think that it is fair to these little boys to have a confused little girl use their bathroom, or a confused little boy use the girls’ room? And how could any adult possibly think that it was fine for a confused (or opportunistic) teenage boy to share a locker room with teenage girls?”
I urge every man and woman of conscience and decency to stand against these laws while, at the same time, working to help those who are gender-confused get to the root of their struggles.
This social madness must stop!
We do have a window of opportunity here as parents to inform ourselves and then respond.
If you live in Canada and in Alberta there are some options that we can proactively do. Its not a time to sit idly by and be silent. We must NOT be silent any more!
- Make a face to face meeting with your MLA (as of today, they are home until March 1st) and convey your concerns.
- Write your own letter to Minister of Education David Eggen.
- Write your own letter to the local school board that has authority over your child’s school.
I believe in prayer. I urge you to pray. Pray for a turning of a nation back to God!
