Because sex, or "gender" is just a socially constructed role, right?
Wrong. "In the beginning God created man... male and female created he them". Kind of a basic, kindergarten building-block starting-point for true knowledge about the human species. Who ever thought we would need revelation to figure this out?!
Goin' out on a limb. I'm guessing the parents a) didn't vote Conservative, and b) are new age if they have religious leanings.
I do annual volunteer teaching in Africa. More and more as I tell them tales from the sophisticated, advanced West, they stare back at me in expressions ranging from bewildered amazement to amazed bewilderment. And we are teaching them?
I wish these kids happy lives. May God look down on them and bless them, and not "visit the sins of their parents" on them.
And the beat goes on.
