The Fallacy of ‘Transgender’
In 2000 the European Therapy Studies Institute published a monograph by Joe Griffin and Ivan Tyrell: “The APET Model – Patterns in the brain”. It shows how far down the road of fake research pseudo-scientists have slipped to ‘prove’ the ‘need’ to assign someone another gender. Sex is what we are born with, part of our given status; ‘gender’ is what we THINK we are. Sex is fixed. A man can think he is an elephant – but he isn’t! He can think he is a box, but he isn’t.
Thus, ‘reassignment’ is based not on science but on the whimsicality of absurd individuals who have weird ideas about who and what they are. I place the blame for this firstly on homosexuals, and secondly on those who allow them to persuade others to undergo surgery. I believe this monograph completely trashes the ‘gender’ argument, so it is important for Christians to read and use it to advantage.
Very basically, the authors say that the human brain acquires ‘templates’ or ‘givens’ before birth, and that as we grow we continue to add information to those templates, allowing us to become mature and informed adults. (Sounds more like God’s creation to me). They argue that trying to alter these templates can have disastrous results. They go on to give an example (below) of how this works out. I advise you to consider this example whenever you read of someone being given surgery to ‘correct’ a problem of gender (remember, gender is what people foolishly THINK they are. When gender and sex concur – which they must, because it is reality – everything works well).
Even the most well-known ‘gender reassignment’ cases come to realise how stupid they have been. The ‘gender’ field is littered with tragedy and incomprehensible foolishness.
The monograph gives a potent illustration of what happens when inner templates are not allowed to seek their fulfilment in the environment – the devastating story of a man reassigned from babyhood to live as a girl…
The procedure of reassigning sex in case of ambiguity (e.g. genetic/hormonal irregularities) was largely established in the 1950s by psychologist Dr. John Money… He also invented the terms ‘gender identity’. Tragically, in the process of his work, he became convinced that all babies are psychosexually the same, and that gender identity only emerges as a result of upbringing. (Griffin and Tyrell, 2000) (Note on Conditioning: Essentially, this is an evolutionary idea and is the unfounded basis on which modern meddling is based).
His primary ideas are fruitless and impossible to prove. No-one can prove what is in a baby’s brain, especially something as specific as being sexually neutral! Money was being unscientific, using guesswork’ this is typical behaviour from evolutionists.
His chance to ‘prove’ this occurred when, in 1967, he was approached by a young couple whose baby boy twins had been obliged to undergo circumcision for medical reasons. The operation for one of them, John, had gone horribly wrong, and he had lost his penis.
Money persuaded the parents that their boy should be fully castrated and given a female-style persona, when he was just 22 months old…
