The other day, I saw a youtube video of Father Mike Schmitz, and he talked about how his sister I believe, was the Tomboy of all time. She just ran with it. She excelled at sports and many things that boys and men aspire too including careers. Everyone accepted it, including her, and she has a successful career and is a mother.
No one ever got the memo that she could pretend to be a boy. She was just herself. She accepted the hand she was given, and no one tried to change her, least of all herself. As someone else mentioned, this child in the article could have been allowed to be herself without pretending to be another sex.
God made her a girl. God doesn’t make mistakes, I make mistakes. She still could be a great leader and example for the Girl Scouts if she were only allowed to be so by her family and herself. If she one day decided to live as a man when she became an adult, that would be her decision. As a child, we rely on our parents to guide us through childhood. We are not capable of doing this on our own until we grow and mature into adults.
All the legal action in the world and all the shrinks in the world will not change the fact that she is a girl. Father Mike also said that a doctor, who used to preform “gender reassignment” surgery eventually stopped doing it. He said that while some were happy with the change, most still were unhappy. He said that clearly this continued unhappiness pointed to a deeper, underlying emotional issues, rather than
wanting to change your gender. This was obviously then, a disservice to patients who needed deep psychological help.
