Transgender Regrets

In today’s rapidly changing youth culture landscape, more and parents are being blind-sided by children who announce that they want to transition from their biological gender to the opposite gender. Known as gender-reassignment that’s accomplished through hormone treatments and radical surgeries, there has been an argument made in the psychological community that patients experience mental health benefits after gender reassignment. Recently, the American Journal of Psychiatry issued a major correction to a prior study. They now say that neither gender reassignment hormone treatments nor gender reassignment surgeries reduce the need of transgender identifying people for mental health services. In her new book, Irreversible Damage, Abigail Shrier writes, “nearly all of the detransitioners I spoke with are plagued with regret.” Parents, in God’s goodness and grace he has created us male and female. Teach your kids to listen to God’s message on gender, rather than the culture’s.
