No to Gender Sameness

The sexes are built to complement each other

Men and women are not biologically equal in function and physique. But the extreme liberal camp has promoted that baseless notion, insisting the sexes are interchangeable. Women are not physiologically built like men, as the task of raising the young requires specific biological and psychological traits. The sexes are complementary, like two hands working the manifold tasks of personal survival.

There’s no proof that propaganda on “gender equality” — which has led to ‘transgender’ male athletes competing unfairly against females and to allegedly ‘trans’ males impregnating imprisoned women inmates — will change our society for the better.

Our schools and government officials ought to be emphasizing beneficial gender differences, not denying them. Women generally have warm sensitivity, expressive receptivity, and multi-tasking capabilities that complement the male’s cold logic, callous aggression, and single-minded focus. In no way is the female sex diminished by acknowledging this, any more than the violinist’s left hand is the lesser partner to the right in the making of harmonious music. The sexes are built to complement each other!

Why does our culture push for what some imagine as a sexless (but sexually decadent) utopia?

Mankind stumbles in materialistic pursuit of heaven on earth, seeking what Christ has promised can only be achieved through Him.
