La Shawn Barber Takes on the "Third Sex"

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?" (Jeremiah 17:9)

Whenever I read or hear someone refer to a male transvestite, transsexual, transgender person, or whatever they call themselves as "she," I cringe. Even if the man has had his sexual organs sliced off and he's growing breasts, he is and always will be a biological male. How he feels about it doesn't change facts.

I don't know about you, but I refuse to prostrate myself to political correctness and call a man "she" because he wants to be a woman. I will never, in my personal or professional life, call a man "she" or a woman "he."

I was dismayed when I read an article on about a policy created by the Massachusetts Commissioner of Education that recommends allowing boys who want to pretend to be girls to use girls' restrooms and locker rooms. Although the policy works the other way, too, let's face it, allowing boys into girls' private areas is worse. Biological differences, also known as reality, strike again!

The commission also directs the adults to go along with a child who wants to pretend to be of the opposite sex and call the child by whatever name he/she has chosen and refer to him as "her" and her as "him." An excerpt of Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity (download the 11-page PDF):

"Some students may feel uncomfortable with a transgender student using the same sex-segregated restroom, locker room or changing facility. This discomfort is not a reason to deny access to the transgender student. School administrators and counseling staff should work with students to address the discomfort and to foster understanding of gender identity, to create a school culture that respects and values all students."
