Boys Will Be Boys… or Girls… or Both… or Neither

I have a friend who used to be a guy, but now he considers himself a girl. He posted this on Facebook today:

Reteaching Gender and Sexuality from PUT THIS ON THE MAP on Vimeo.

The main point being, there is a current campaign out there to teach “queer” youth that “it gets better” so that they supposedly will not be so prone to commit suicide. This video takes issue with that, and points out that these kids shouldn’t have to wait for it to get better.

If by that they mean nobody should be bullying them, of course they’re right. However, that’s not all they mean. This video makes the agenda very clear. We all need to be “re-taught” about gender and sexuality. We all need to “learn” that people can choose to be male or female or even both at the same time, and that sexual preferences for one or the other or both are all okay as well. And the “we all” who need to be re-taught include the school administrators, policymakers, health care providers, social workers, police officers – and my favorite, the churches.

In a comment section on the site where this was posted a few days ago, someone almost immediately highlighted the video’s contention that the churches need to be re-taught, with the observation, “Exactly.”
