This is a question I have been thinking about every once in a while when seeing transgender and gay people on the internet. Now don’t get me wrong I think there are many flaws and double standards within this movement. I fail to see the logic of mutilating the body to fit a gender as in transgenderism or the double standard in the believe that homosexuals are more fit to get married than incestuals.
But I am troubled by the idea of the “gender spectrum”. I understand that there are definitely going to be patterns that can’t be ignored within men and women. But at the same time, isn’t it an oversimplification of human nature to say men are always like this and women are always like that. There are definitely going to be people that are going to exhibit traits that are not usually male or female (then there is that whole thing about how estrogens from plastics are changing men). I heard about the fact that men’s brains and women’s brain are the biggest difference between them, not just what kind of sex organs they are born with. But is it possible that a biological male might have a brain that has some properties of a biological female brain (such as the two hemispheres of the brain having more connections between them like a female’s brain) or the other way around with a female and male brain.
Secondly, how far are we supposed to go with traditional values like this? If there happens to be a short haired tomboy who hates dresses and is interested in Mixed Martial Arts, should we make her get rid of her personality quirks just so she can commit to a generic standard? I know we should try our best to surrender our wills to God but didn’t God create us with different quirks like this so that he can use us in different and wonderful ways?
Those are my basic questions. Look forward to answers.
