Why did God make some people girls and some people boys?


Why did God make some people girls and some boys?That doesn’t really make sense because he could have made us the same as he made snails- Without gender. Why did he decide to create male and female?


Because God is good.


Because variety is the spice of life :slight_smile: Same as he made lions, monkeys and giraffes as opposed to having all animals the same, or he made oaks, pines and palm trees instead of making all trees the same.


Because we are made in the image of God and God is three persons in one God. The three persons being of the same nature are distinct. When God created man He said that it was not good for man to be alone. He created woman (Eve) to share the same kind of love that the Trinity shares eternally. The Love spirated from the Father and the Son is the Holy Spirit. We are made in that love and share in that intimate love with our spouses and therefore bare the mark of our maker…teachccd :slight_smile:


So that we could joyfully share in His loving act of creating new human beings, and mirror the relationship between Christ and His Church.

Btw the state of being either male or female is called “sex”, not “gender”. “Gender” is a grammatical term. Words may have a gender. (In some languages, there are four or more genders.) People, higher animals, and some plants, have a sex, not a “gender”.

Activists trying to promote and enshrine sexual perversions are behind the attempt to manipulate language by saying “gender” when they mean “sex”. One recently asserted that humans have “at least seven genders”!


Snails just don’t have much fun.

One recently asserted that humans have “at least seven genders”!

This is referring to the state called “intersexuality,” which is complex (I’ve heard only 5 genders in this sense), and has nothing to do with the subject of this blog.


oh my…it’s like a train wreck…you just can’t look away!!


Yes, I can see that it makes sense.:stuck_out_tongue: But the snails look they’re trying to murder each other:hypno:


The seven “genders” referred to are ortho-male, ortho-female, homo-male, homo-female, bi-male, bi-female, and narcisist. Obviously these refer to sexual attractions, with male and female being the only true sexes.
