Children growing up in this confused world are bombarded with messages of confusion. Little boys are told they don’t have to be boys; girls are told they might not really be girls. Whatever they feel they are is what they are—boy, girl, or a mixture of the two. The world tells them it doesn’t matter. The confusion and ambiguity are reinforced in many ways: gender-neutral days at school, the banning of terms such as boys and girls in the classroom, the proliferation of unisex restrooms, curricula that promote homosexual marriage, etc. It’s little wonder that some people grow up struggling with their sexual identity. But our Lord warned against leading children astray: “Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble’” (Luke 17:1–2).
The mother of a transgender child has come forward to condemn legislative efforts to ban so-called “conversion therapy,” which she warns is a backdoor for filling the ranks of the mental health profession with activists, rather than therapists.
When her own daughter first came out as “trans,” this mother, who wishes to protect her identity by remaining anonymous, says she actively sought out a therapist to help the girl “sort out what her gender dysphoria meant” – only to learn that very few “therapists” today are in the business of giving actual therapy.
“I quickly discovered that it is nearly impossible to find therapists who do this kind of work,” the anonymous mother wrote in a piece for The Federalist.
“If a girl presents as transgender today, the vast majority of therapists will immediately affirm the girl’s declared gender identity and ask her what steps she would like to take toward transition.”
Reflecting on the life of her own daughter, this mother merely wanted to help her child learn whether she’s truly a transgender, or simply a homosexual who’s ashamed of her same-sex attraction, for instance.
Other potential possibilities for her daughter’s transgender feelings include a reaction to trauma, a desire for respect, feeling uncomfortable with feminine stereotypes, or even an internalized “hate for women’s bodies.”
But none of this could be explored, as the more than a dozen so-called therapists whom this mother approached were only interested in “affirming” the girl’s transgender identity.
“I finally resorted to paying out-of-pocket for my daughter to talk online to a therapist who lives in another state,” the mother writes.

Thousands of parents of gender-dysphoric youth are similarly unable to find real help for their confused children
Sadly, this mother is not alone in her fruitless quest for honest therapy. She explains in her article that she belongs to an online support group with more than 1,500 other parents just like her who are similarly distraught that standard mental health therapy no longer seems to exist.
“Finding therapists who provide standard mental health therapy rather than automatic affirmation is a frustration for most of us,” she laments.
This is where anti-conversion therapy legislation comes into play. Some 29 states are currently mulling whether or not to prohibit such therapy, which has been given an expanded definition in the age of trans-madness.
Testimonies from Overcomers
“The term conversion therapy used to apply only to attempts to change a person’s sexual orientation,” the mother writes. “Now the term is applied to attempts to change either a person’s sexual orientation or a person’s gender identity.”
Why this is problematic has to do with the large percentage of “transgenders” who are merely confused about their gender identity, and in need of help, not affirmation. Anti-conversion therapy legislation will leave such individuals not only helpless but also affirmed in their mental illness.
“What the general public does not understand is that standard mental health therapy is now considered conversion therapy when practiced with gender-dysphoric youth,” the mother further reveals.
In her daughter’s case, the out-of-state therapist who’s helping her “think deeply about what her feelings mean and whether transition would be a helpful thing for her” is a rare commodity – and an increasingly rare commodity as activists who believe in an affirmation-only approach “are filing complaints to her therapist’s licensing board, claiming the therapist is practicing conversion therapy.”
It’s an extremely slippery slope with disastrous consequences for gender-dysphoric youth who might otherwise be convinced that their transgender feelings stem from something other than a built-in “gender identity.”
HNewsWire-(T)he numerous valid objections to transgender ideology, perhaps the most emotionally compelling is this one: It is increasingly a ruiner of people and a devastator of family happiness.
The College Fix this week gives a perfect example of this, detailing numerous mothers who have found themselves “in shock as [their] daughters come home from college with mustaches [and with their] breasts removed.” That sounds bad enough; the details are worse. One young woman arrived home clearly not well, looking disheveled and having sprouted facial hair; she subsequently cut off contact with her family after returning to school, having “obtained testosterone in the student clinic.” Another came home to declare that she had “socially transitioned” and was now seeking to start taking hormones and begin prepping for “top surgery” (a euphemism for cutting off her own breasts to approximate a male’s chest). Another young woman went through with that surgery and is now on hormones; as her mother put it, “If she continues to take the testosterone, after some years her internal female organs will deteriorate to a point that they, too, will have to be surgically removed.”
The horror of it all is matched by the realization that these young women’s campuses are arguably more or less complicit in these terrible transformations. American universities have become snake pits of gender ideology; students themselves are obsessed with it, and more and more campus organizations and services are dedicated to promoting it. Were this merely a fad, a passing craze to little effect, that would be one thing. But you can’t get your breasts back after you’ve cut them off. Once your reproductive organs have died and been removed, they’re not coming back either. And you can’t get back the years of your life that you gave to a fraudulent belief.
Once the other shoe drops and the craze passes, you can be certain that the people who promoted and enabled this behavior will feel ashamed and embarrassed about it. But it’s also likely the case that they will escape any culpability for it. It will be a lose-lose for everyone. As one mother put it: “I…wish none of this were true.” Unfortunately, it is, and it’s not going any for a while.
TOP PEDIATRICIAN: TRANSGENDER IDEOLOGY IS CHILD ABUSE
Doctors and mental health professionals are speaking out against the promotion of sex changes as a legitimate therapy for children confused about their gender identity, while states are making it illegal for them to seek help with a talk therapist.
Are We Living in the Last Days?
Dr. Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians(ACP), who has seen the effects of transgender ideology firsthand. Cretella says “the transition-affirming protocol is child abuse.”
She says it is “devastating” to learn that increasing numbers of young women are already detransitioning from a sex change they had in their teens, and they only now realize that each of them “is a woman with a scarred chest who is most likely sterile and facing a host of unknown physical and psychological risks from taking almost 10 years of daily testosterone.”
The ACP published “Gender Ideology Harms Children,” urging a rejection of “all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex.”
“Facts — not ideology — determine reality,” it asserts.
The idea that ‘feminized’ or ‘masculinized’ brains can be trapped in the wrong body from before birth is a myth that has no basis in science and a fact biblically, it’s called sin, and perverts, sexually devious individuals should seek God’s plan for mankind…

Some may battle heterosexual temptation, greed, pride, anger, or any number of sins. Someone else may battle gender confusion. Regardless of the battle with sin and the devil’s lies, the question we must answer is, “Is Christ and His redemptive work sufficient for our battles?” Jesus definitely claims to be sufficient for any and all of our battles, and He desires to sanctify us through His Word of truth (John 17:17).

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything. I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)

Evil Exists So Spiritual Warfare Becomes Necessary!
- Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
- We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9. persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10. always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Satan has power over (LGBTQE-TRANS PEOPLE). The “sons of disobedience” referred to in Ephesians 2:2 are those who have not trusted Christ as Lord and Savior (cf. Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 13:12). The demons are also under the rule of Satan (Matthew 12:24), and one of his titles is “prince of demons” (Matthew 9:34). Satan has a kingdom (Matthew 12:26) and a throne (Revelation 2:13). Satan is called a prince because he is a ruler and possesses the power to manifest evil in the world through influencing people and commanding demons.
Biblical Prophecy – Videos
HNewsWire- “All political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable.” Just look at some of our modern-day examples: torture is “enhanced interrogation techniques”; murder is “collateral damage”; the aggression initiation of war is a “pre-emptive strike”; the theft of taxpayers’ money is a “bailout”, and the theft of depositors’ money in a bank is a “haircut” or “bail-in”.In a blatant example of Newspeak, the New World Order controllers (through the psychiatric DSM V) have tried to rename pedophiles as “minor-attracted persons” and redefine pedophilia as “sexual orientation”. This makes no sense since sexual orientation has to do with gender, not age, with whether you are attracted to males or females, not how old they are. There are even organizations (like B4UAct.org) which are claiming that pedophiles are being unfairly stigmatized for their feelings!
