Gender Confusion, Modern Culture and Political Correctness
Society has hit a crossroad of gender confusion. Not all, but many men have lost their masculinity and women have lost their femininity. Some people choose to live an androgynous lifestyle while others refuse to identify with the sex of their birth.
The final identity transformation occurs through sex reassignment surgery as seen with Chastity Bono and Bruce Jenner.
Some celebrities led androgynous trends in the 1970’s and 1980’s which continues today. They preferred to dress in gender neutral fashions, but their sexuality was still known.
Androgyny – Wikipedia: Androgyny is the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics. Gender ambiguity may be found in fashion, gender identity, sexual identity, or sexual lifestyle.

In the 1990’s Saturday Night Live (SNL) had a character named ‘Pat’ that no one could determine if the person was a man or a woman. Who would have imagined in the 1990’s the premise of the skit would become mainstream?
SNL Video – IT’S PAT: PAT GOES TO THE GYM “Pat’s (Julia Sweeney) trainer Andrea (Linda Hamilton) only finds frustration when trying to discern Pat’s sex. Pat’s answers to Andrea’s questions regarding Pat’s full name, middle name, age and height give her nothing to go on. [Season 17, 1991]”

In 1994, the term Metrosexual was first referenced for a man who is focused on grooming and appearance. It is used for a man who is focused on appearance, but who does not always identity as gay. He loves grooming, perfectly style hair with an abundance of hairspray, eyebrow plucking, wearing tailored jeans and coordinated outfits. He might even wax his leg and chest hair.
Wikipedia – Metrosexual is a portmanteau of metropolitan and sexual, coined in 1994 describing a man who is especially meticulous about his appearance, typically spending a significant amount of time and money on shopping as part of this.
A growing segment of society is hell bent on erasing legacy male and female identities. So far there are between 58 and 63 gender options. No longer is it politically correct to equate pink for a girl or blue for a boy. Gender balance has been replaced with gender confusion.
Here’s a List of 58 Gender Options for Facebook Users – Facebook introduced dozens of options for users to identify their gender today – and although the social media giant said it would not be releasing a comprehensive list, ABC News has found at least 58 so far.

TRANSGENDER AND ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLES
Minnesota Schools Adopt Transgender Toolkit for Kindergartners – Teachers told to ask children their ‘preferred pronouns’ – If a teacher calls a child by the wrong pronoun, he could violate the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, according to the guide.
Teachers also should avoid calling grade school children “boys and girls,” because the phrase is not “inclusive.”
“Teachers could address students as ‘students’ and ‘scholars’ to be inclusive as opposed to ‘boys and girls,'” the guide states.
Other tips include not picking a homecoming or prom king and queen—instead students should nominate “prom ambassadors,” “homecoming court,” or “homecoming royalty.”
The department explains, “Language around gender is evolving.

Society is erasing what were commonly thought of as traditional gender specific toys such as dolls for girls and trucks or action toys for boys. It is almost taboo to assume what a child likes. political correctness is dictating what the mainstream majority should behave to accommodate the minority.
Wikipedia: LGBT demographics of the United States – An earlier report published in April 2011 by the Williams Institute estimated that 3.8 percent of Americans identified as gay/lesbian, bisexual, or transgender: 1.7 percent as lesbian or gay, 1.8 percent as bisexual, and 0.3 percent as transgender.

IS GENDER CONFUSION MENTAL ILLNESS?
Not everyone agrees with the direction society is headed. Many are dismayed with current trends. Dysphoria is seen as a treatable mental illness. Those opposing think embracing gender confusion only serves as a disservice for those trapped in denial and depression.
Merriam-Webster: Gender Dysphoria – a distressed state arising from conflict between a person’s gender identity and the sex the person has or was identified as having at birth; also : a psychological disorder marked by such distress
Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is ‘Mental Disorder;’ Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’– “Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.”

This thoughtful analysis breaks through the political correctness obfuscation that clouds the well documented facts of science and Psychiatry.
Christians see current trends as a direction specified in the bible as a sign of the end times as in the ‘Days of Noah’ and as in the days of ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’. For those who believe in the Bible it is clear that God created man and woman. Anything else is a distortion of God’s creation.
Genesis 2:22 (KJV) “And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”
Genesis 5:2 (KJV) “Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.”
1 Corinthians 14:33 (KJV) “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”

As it has been said, live and let people live. That applies to those who choose alternate gender identities and those who oppose change. That is not always the case. It seems the minority is dictating what everyone must embrace as illustrated by current laws in America and Canada.
