This week's Rapp Report is one you should not listen to. In this episode, we prove that transgender is an makes the arguments for atheism self-refuting. Chaz Bono says, “There's a gender in your brain and a gender in your body. For 99% of people, those things are in alignment. For transgender people, their mismatch. That's all it is. It's not complicated, it's not a neurosis. It's a mix up. It's a birth defect, like a cleft palate." This quote is an attempt to normalize the definition by providing new terms. When we deal with transgender is and we're dealing with a new definition of terminology in an attempt to normalize something that was previously identified as a mental illness. One transgender remembrance Day poster stated, "34% of trans people attempt suicide. 64% are bullied. 73% of trans people are harassed in public. 21% of trans people avoid going out in public due to fear." Now even if the statistics are accurate, there is no comparison to the statistics and other groups. Many teenagers attempt suicide, and are believed, and are harassed in public, and avoid going public due to fear. But should that mean that we should change society to accept those who feel fearful, or should we encourage those who are doing the bullying to refrain? In fact, what we see in our culture today is that the LGTB community are the ones that bully any who do not celebrate their perversion. We see this argument for celebration in a quote from Andreja Pejic, “We’re human beings, and this is a human life. This is reality for us, and all we ask for is acceptance and validation for what we say that we are. It is a basic human right." This statement is a logical fallacy known as begging the question. It assumes a fundamental human right to prove that it is a basic human right. Throughout this argument I would challenge someone to ask the question does this apply to the serial rapist or serial murderer? The serial rapist wants to be left alone and feels that they are born this way. Should they be celebrated? Should they be accepted? Should they be validated? There is a difference between the way we are born and the responsibility we have to behave in society. As we embark on this discussion, we must remember that we are talking about people and not issues. These are individuals who are struggling both to fit in with society and themselves. Most of them are not trying to make some political statement. However, they do want acceptance from the culture. Many of them are being caught in the crossfire between those who want to argue for political issues. As Christians, we need to be more focused on the people who will face a living God as the judge than the issues of the country. Let us begin, with the question of what is transgenderism? Up until recent years, one's gender had been determined by biology, whether they had the chromosomes for male or female. Gender had always been a scientific issue based on anatomy and the chemistry of the chromosomes. Transgenderism has to do with the way people think or feel their gender is, rather than what their chromosomes or anatomy prove. Therefore, transgenderism has more to do with the way people feel or identified themselves than the chemical makeup of the body. Thus this is not about biology but the soul. This is not about science. It is about psychology. If transgenderism is true then we are more than just chemical reactions as atheism argues. We must recognize, that a majority of children who experienced strong feelings that they were born in the wrong gender to have those feelings disappear entirely by adolescents. Therefore, we should not encourage this sort of thinking and assume that the majority of children will grow out of it. There are many theories about why people have gender dysphoria, whether it be the thought that people have a male brain in a female body where female brains in a male body or the thought that one's psychological environment in childhood is t...
