How a Boy Becomes a Hen

Scripture to reflect upon: Jeremiah 1:5
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart...”

You are not a mistake. Who you are. What you are. Boy. Girl. Black. White. Your personality. Your culture. God did not create you as an afterthought. T.D. Jakes said it best: “God created you with great contemplation to function effectively and to play a role…that no one else can do.”

I recently read that schools in Sweden are trying a new pilot program on pre-school children to get rid of gender classifications. They no longer want to call a boy a boy and a girl a girl. They feel that by using such nouns, we are creating “gender discrimination”.1 And schools in California are teaching young impressionable boys and girls—there, I said it!—that there are two ways to be a boy and two ways to be a girl, and use FISH as examples.2

Why are we desperately trying to destroy our future generation?

This excerpt from the article exposes the Sweden's school agenda and “methods”1:

  • Placing lego’s next to toy kitchens, “to make sure the children draw no mental barriers between cooking and construction”
  • Making almost every children’s book center around homosexual couples, single parents or adopted children
  • Placing emphasis on tolerance of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people
  • Experimenting with “new ideas” like more than one “mother” during role play
  • Using the word “hen” to refer to a visitor instead of “han” or “hon” (him/her in Swedish). The use of “Hen” is genderless
Why are we trying so hard to be something we weren’t created to be? I’m all for tolerance. I’m all for diversity. I’m all for open-mindedness. I have dear, wonderful friends that are gay. I don’t need to be taught how to tolerate them, because what I feel for all of my friends, regardless of their gender, race, or sexual preference, is love.

I think rather than teaching “tolerance” the world needs to be taught how to love first and foremost. Without love, there’s no such thing as tolerance. So this program can do everything it plans to do, but without teaching the basic principles of God and His love, you have nothing but a bunch of mixed up, messed up children who will grow up to be even more confused and angry with the world. If we think this generation is a mess, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

I’m all for teaching children differing responsibilities. We teach Tavin to be responsible in every facet of his life, and we are his examples. He watches his daddy do the dishes, do laundry and vacuum. He also watches him mow the lawn, fix things, and take control in emergency situations. He also sees me doing those things. It doesn’t make my husband less of a man, or make me less of a woman. It makes us equal. We share the responsibilities. We are helpmates (Genesis 2:18). Why aren’t we teaching children that concept instead of asking them to stop being a boy or a girl?

I think the real mission our government (through the school system) is trying to accomplish is that we no longer conceive humans; but instead produce robots that can be controlled and manipulated any way they see fit. Our children are a pilot program. A social experiment gone wrong. They are becoming the government’s pre-programmed robots. They may think they are teaching tolerance for one another, but what they will really achieve is self-hate for who they were created to be.

My confidence in this is that God will hear their cries when this inevitably happens. He will be there when they scream out, “What have I become!? Who am I?” And God will lovingly whisper in their ears: “You are mine. I knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb. I set you apart…”

NOTE TO SELF: You are not an afterthought. Be happy with the fact that God designed every aspect of who you are and how you look.
