Teenage girls not drinking anything before school due to Biden’s bathroom policy and the sexual revolutionaries

Teenage girls not drinking anything before school due to Biden’s bathroom policy and the sexual revolutionaries. By Carl Trueman.

The problem my pastor friend faces is how to counsel parents of teenage girls who will not drink anything before going to school lest they have to use the bathrooms that, thanks to the stroke of President Biden’s pen, are now open to teenage boys who think — or claim — to have been born in the wrong bodies. It seems that anxiety and physical discomfort caused by the new bathroom policy will now be the new normal for young high school girls.

Trans activists like to use the language of “safety” as a way of playing to the aesthetics of our therapeutic culture and delegitimizing their critics. Well, these biological women no longer feel safe. Their spaces, like their gender, have been stolen from them by men and for men. …

Because of the Biden administration’s transgender policies, some girls will be subject to voyeurism and assault in the very place where they should be guaranteed privacy and safety. Some female prisoners will be raped by men pretending to be women in a place where the state has confined them. Tragedies will flow from this. …

It is quite clear that the safety and well-being of children and women means nothing to these people. And so only when it starts costing them their money, their reputations, and their sense of security, will we see any major change of direction in the culture as a whole.

Bill Muehlenberg:

How is it that we find the millennia-old institutions of marriage and family largely destroyed; the bizarre situation of 4-year-old boys deciding they are somehow now girls — all agreed to and egged-on by adults, complete with bodily mutilation; and the almost total trashing of morality, biology and reality …?

He quotes Carl Trueman’s book:

The so-called sexual revolution of the last sixty years, culminating in its latest triumph — the normalization of transgenderism — cannot be properly understood until it is set within a much broader transformation in how society understands the nature of human selfhood. …

The sexual revolution is simply one manifestation of the larger revolution of the self that has taken place in the West. …

The sexual revolution does not simply represent a growth in the routine transgression of traditional sexual codes or even a modest expansion of the boundaries of what is and is not acceptable sexual behavior; rather, it involves the abolition of such codes in their entirety.
