Relentless Punishment for Expressing Common Sense

 

Dear Marriage Supporter —

LGBT activists like to portray their small community as victims of bigotry, hatred and harassment. They use that portrayal, with the help of their allies in the media, in a relentless push to force all of society to accept their skewed, false narrative about the intrinsic nature of men and women, and human sexuality. Consider these two cases currently in the news:

  • Isabella Chow is a student at UC Berkeley in California, and is an elected member of the campus Student Senate. She is also a Christian. LGBT activists presented a student resolution to express support for transgenderism. This is not something that Chow could do and maintain her beliefs that God made us male and female. So she decided to abstain on the resolution after issuing a statement that all people, including those who identify as transgendered, are entitled to God's love and should be free from discrimination. For this, she's been brutally attacked in the public square, yelled at on the way to class, confronted by angry mobs, had over 1,000 students demand that she change her views and been kicked out of her student political party.
  • A male PE teacher at a Florida middle school has been punished for refusing to personally oversee a female student who claims a male "gender identity" when changing in the boys locker room. The teacher does not want to observe a biological female who is naked. In response, the school district has threatened putting him on administrative leave and transferring him to another school district. They say his failure to implement their transgender policy, "won't be tolerated." This policy was written by an LGBT activist and imposed on students with no discussion or notice to them or their parents.

HELP US FIGHT AGAINST THIS DANGEROUS GENDER IDEOLOGY.

It's now become common that merely expressing the obvious observation that sex is a biological reality assigned at birth, not an emotional feeling or a political condition that can be chosen amounts to outright hostility, bigotry and hatred. And activists  relentlessly push this narrative in every forum, especially where young people are prevalent such as in the schools.

But here's the truth: biology is not bigotry. It is not a demonstration of love for your neighbor to accept a lie about them – that they can reject the sex that God assigned them in the womb.

The promulgation of this lie is having an impact on young people. Statistically, the LGBT community makes up about 2-3% of society according to large-scale studies. The so-called transgender account for about 10% of this tiny audience, which translates into 0.2% - 0.3% of the entire population. However, because of the widespread cultural push to normalize transgenderism and LGBT behavior, a whopping 57% of young people in the US and the UK say they are not completely heterosexual and consider their sexuality to be fluid. Another study reported a nearly 400% increase in the percent of people claiming a non-conforming "gender identity".

These are serious issues. A child who is struggling with emotional issues, trying to figure out where he or she fits in with peers and the larger society, is now at risk of being labeled "transgender" and could find himself on a path that leads to social, psychological and medical intervention with often permanent consequences, such as being prescribed powerful hormone blockers that cause sterilization.

As serious as these issues are, however, powerful cultural forces are intent on making sure that even discussing them is seen as hateful and bigoted.

This type of attitude needs to be confronted and protected against. But with the Democrats set to take control of the US House of Representatives, I fear that the situation may get worse before it gets better.

NOM has been at the forefront of speaking truth to power when it comes to confronting the rising cultural push for transgenderism. We've sponsored a bus tour to bring attention to the issues, and aggressively promoted independent studies that document the consequences of this push.

We've also fought for legal protections for citizens so that government cannot punish people who maintain a common-sense understanding of the biological reality of male and female.

Please help us continue to stand for the truth of male and female by making a contribution today.

We're in an insane moment in history where seemingly everything in life is being politicized and the LGBT agenda has been weaponized against anyone who fails to fully embrace it.  In times like these, society needs people of clarity and courage to stand up and speak truth to power. NOM will continue to do just that, even in the face of an increasing cultural and political wind to the contrary. I pray that you will stand with us.

Please, take a moment to make an urgent contribution so that we can fight for children, families, people of faith, and for truth.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown
