FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL
ASSAULTS ON FAITH, FAMILY AND LIFE
GENDER CAN CHANGE DAILY
April 25, 2017
It gets more and more ridiculous …. and dangerous. Here is the premiere university in the USA saying really stupid things. That gender can change daily. That saying this is not true is a form of violence. And you know what follows. This is hate speech (now even called violence). You can be charged in court. And you would lose. This is how radical leftists and liberals are assaulting people of faith.
There are only two sexes–male and female. This is God’s design. Genders are man’s design. They are a social construct. They are what you want to be, even as it is contrary to nature.
Harvard: Students can change gender daily, saying otherwise is ‘violence’
CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, April 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — One of the world’s premier academic institutions has published a student guide that states one’s gender can “change from day to day” and merely saying that’s not true “is a form of … violence.”
Homosexual activists in the Harvard University office of “LGBTQ Student Life” passed out a school-sponsored guide that urges students to “fight transphobia.”
Among other claims presented as facts, the guide decrees that “there are more than two sexes.”
“Gender is fluid and changing,” the guide instructs.
Using carefully worded transgender phraseology, the guide refers to biological gender as one’s “sex assigned at birth.”
“How are you supposed to write a law that protects against gender or sex discrimination if a person’s ‘gender identity’ can change daily?” Chris Pandolfo at the Conservative Review asks. “James Madison might’ve said something important about ‘mutable’ or constantly changing government and ‘incoherent’ laws once.”
Furthermore, the Harvard guide admonishes students that “fixed binaries” (in other words, referring to the two sexes of male and female) and “biological essentialism” (in other words, considering a boy to be a boy and a girl to be a girl) “threaten(s) the lives of trans people.”
Calling a male by a male pronoun is considered gender assault. “Misgendering someone” is considered life-threatening. The biblical worldview is characterized as “transphobic misinformation.”
“Transphobic misinformation is a form of systemic violence,” the guide claims.
Critics say the most dangerous claim of the Harvard encyclical is that opposing views are “a form of systemic violence.” In other words, “traditional understandings of the roles of men and women and the distinctions between male and female are ‘violence.’”
“If you follow this line of thinking, then when, for example, Jesus says in Matthew 19, ‘Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female’… — that’s violence,” Pandolfo pointed out.
Campus Reform reports that several Harvard students expressed outrage about the misuse of tuition money for the politically correct student guide, but “all declined to comment on the record due to concerns about potential repercussions from the school.”
Pandolfo opined, “One wonders if Harvard’s administration has paused to consider whether they are providing a ‘Safe Space’ for students who think that men are men and women are women.”
“This is the sad state of affairs at colleges and universities,” Pandolfo concludes. “Traditional values are called violent. Mob violence to silence free speech is called justice.”
