He, She, His, Hers, They, Them ... Gender Identification?
A big trend in the business world today is to put the identifiers; “He, Him, or She, Her, behind people’s e-mail signature stamps to indicate their gender ………“IDENTIFICATION” …………….?????????” I don’t see a need or purpose for this. God gave me life, and my parents gave me a name – End of Story. Why is there a need to “Identify” myself and my gender ….”CHOICE” …to the world???
The only purpose that I see in this “identification” method is to lend credence to those who want to make themselves something they are not. You are who God created you to be, no personal choice, preference, nor commitment to a fad, changes that.
Below in bold italicized font, is what NPR says in a recent article they published. If you know anything about NPR; National Public Radio, you know that they have a political agenda and a significant cultural bias. I will highlight the words or terms, with my follow-on comments, that are offensive to me and should be offensive to you, as they are not in keeping with what God created.
Issues of equality and acceptance of transgender and nonbinary people (made up terms not created by God) — along with challenges to their rights — have become a major topic in the headlines. These issues can involve words and ideas and identities (you are what God created you to be) that are new to some.
That's why we've put together a glossary of terms relating to gender identity. (You are what God created you to be) Our goal is to help people communicate accurately and respectfully with one another.
Proper use of gender identity(you are what God created you to be) terms, including pronouns, is a crucial way to signal courtesy and acceptance. Alex Schmider, associate director of transgender (you are what God created you to be) representation at GLAAD, compares using someone's correct pronouns to pronouncing their name correctly – "a way of respecting them and referring to them in a way that's consistent and true to who they are."

Sex refers to a person's biological status and is typically assigned at birth (sex is not “ASSIGNED” – it is God Given and Created), usually on the basis of external anatomy. Sex is typically categorized as male, female or intersex.
Gender is often defined as a social construct of norms, behaviors and roles that varies between societies and over time. Gender is often categorized as male, female or nonbinary. (You are what God created you to be)
Gender identity is one's own internal sense of self and their gender, whether that is man, woman, neither or both. Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not outwardly visible to others. (You are what God created you to be)
For most people, gender identity aligns with the sex assigned at birth (you are what God created you to be), the American Psychological Association notes. For transgender people, gender identity differs in varying degrees from the sex assigned at birth. (You are what God created you to be)
As you can see, I don’t believe in anything contrary to God’s design and creation, and quite frankly no-one should. However, this is the USA and thus all people have the right to be what they want to be. But I’m wondering if these choices are the root cause of America’s gradual fall from grace, God’s grace? Could these growing and increased freedoms, and the simultaneous gradual departure from God’s Word, be to root of all our problems? Seriously ponder this question!!!
A good high school friend of mine, Dave Fox, shared the upcoming video recently with his social media friends. While yes in the US, people have the freedom to choose, I feel the video he shared sums up the feelings of the vast majority of Americans.
As you watch this video, I ask you to keep an open mind and truly focus on the words and statements made. Focus on the passion and deep commitment of the speaker. But mostly importantly, focus on the message. You can tell that the Bible book of Genesis is on the mind of the speaker. Shouldn’t what God created be at the forefront of all our minds, each and every day!!!
