Social Media and Gender Incongruence
In the past you’ve heard me mention what is called Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria. Simply stated, Rapid onset gender dysphoria is spreading as an identity option among the population of teens and young teens as a result of the influence of peers and social media. Of course, when we teach the traditional biblical view on gender we teach that God created human beings on the gender binary, as either male of female. Sadly, our culture sees God’s order and design as outdated and constricting. A group of French medical professionals has released this statement: Parents addressing their children’s questions about transgender identity or associated distress should remain vigilant regarding the addictive role of excessive engagement with social media, which is both harmful to the psychological development of young people and is responsible for a very significant part of the growing sense of gender incongruence. Parents, teach your kids to embrace and live into God’s good design for their bodies.
