Today, I draw your attention to a particularly troubling PBS Frontline documentary that has already aired, but will undoubtedly air again: Growing Up Trans. It chronicles the struggles of transgender children and their families. It also portrays gender transition among children as acceptable, and will desensitize American children (and adults) on the transgender issue. This, despite the fact that studies show that 70%-80% of children who express transgender feelings spontaneously lose those feelings as they grow up, and that the suicide rate for those undergoing sex reassignment surgery is 20 times that of the general population.
Please call PBS and tell them that you don't want them to continue airing the show because of such harmful consequences of transgenderism in children. Comments on PBS shows can be registered at (703) 739-5000. Please remember the words of 2 Timothy 2:24-25: "And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone... correcting his opponents with gentleness."
The corresponding good cultural artifact in this case is a an award-winning book by Pastor Sam Andreades, enGendered: God's Gift of Gender Difference in Relationship.
"enGendered celebrates the God-given distinctions between a man and a woman. It concludes that the more distinction is embraced, the closer a man and woman become. Thus gender, rightly understood, is a tool for intimacy. Written in a compassionate tone and winsome style, the volume speaks to Christians who want to know what the Bible says about gender differences and why."
I would add that it has many beautifully written "scenic overlooks" - stories inspired by biblical passages.
