  1. This is insanity!!! “Some people need more than one option!!”

    Where are the psychiatrists these days? Why aren’t they speaking up? They’ve all been silenced and look like fools to me!

    I understand there are those born with physical ambiguity, but, that’s not a reason for others to then borrow their burden and turn it into a normal way of life for anyone who chooses to live it out. This is insane!

  2. Sheila,
    What are you talking about? We should celebrate unfortunate deformities! In fact, ever since I was a child, I always knew I was a little different; only after I received my elephantitis implants did I feel complete. What once called for treatment with medicine is to now be celebrated–nay, medical treatment for these things must be made illegal, because there is a place for celebrating and having pride in ALL!

    In fact, even I am wrong for saying it is wrong to medically correct what was once unanimously considered wrong, because what I complained was wrong to do should also be celebrated–even if that wrong is wronging me by trying to stop me from celebrating what was always considered wrong!

    Yes, we’re all wrong and we’re all right!

  3. Curious what you might think of a pastor sending a youth group out into a city community that borders on a gay area community after directing them to go out two by two, hand in hand, same sex, to observe the responses of the people on the street in order to experience how gay people are treated, and gain an understanding of how a gay person might feel given the treatment they receive?

    It is hard in this day to know what is over the line but I remember when my children were in school there was a term used – “thresholding”. You take a person beyond their natural barrier of comfort or understanding and in their distress, reframe their experience.

    “For readers new to the idea of threshold concepts the approach builds on the
    notion that there are certain concepts, or certain learning experiences, which resemble
    passing through a portal, from which a new perspective opens up, allowing things
    formerly not perceived to come into view. This permits a new and previously
    inaccessible way of thinking about something. It represents a transformed way of
    understanding, or interpreting, or viewing something, without which the learner
    cannot progress, and results in a reformulation of the learners’ frame of meaning

    Mezirow saw transformation being triggered by what he termed a ‘disorienting
    dilemma’. In his analysis the meaning schemes that we hold concerning a particular
    phenomenon or situation are unsettled by the disorienting dilemma or challenging
    perspective and occasion a series of phases, often involving a phase of withdrawal
    or disengagement prior to a re-engagement in which the integration of the different
    perspective is integrated.”

    In a world gone gender-mad, is this how we train our chidren to “empathize” and “understand”?

    Horrified in Canada!

  4. Thresholding, transformational learning – interesting concepts worth examining. Isn’t this happening to us on a regular basis? Being confronted with an extreme scenario that challenges a deeply held position on that issue? We tend to back off (“withdrawal”) and soften our perspective. What a powerful, insidious tool to break down sensitive boundaries and reposition them.

  5. Yes, Ruth . . . a powerful, insidious tool, difficult enough for adults to understand when it’s happening to them, nevermind underage, teenage youth.

    I also recall a report/study I read when my children were in school being subjected to radical new ideas in their compulsory sex education classes (I’m sorry I don’t have it to back up my statement). The report/study concluded that students who would not otherwise engage in certain sexual behaviours were more likely to engage in those behaviours after participating in a sex ed class where those behaviours were discussed/normalized. Again, a breaking down of sensitive boundaries and repositioning of them.

    So, part of my wonder about the exercise described in my first post included the concern that students – underage teens!!!! – who participated in that particular exercise might well have experienced a normalizing of behaviour they may not have considered otherwise. And if there was even one youth in the group who was struggling with crossing that boundary, which is very likely – “. . . (Pew) research survey 12 is the median age at which lesbian, gay and bisexual adults first felt they might be something other than heterosexual or straight.” (http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2013/06/13/a-survey-of-lgbt-americans/) – the outcome of the exercise could have had a result completely diffrent than merely learning how to empathize and understand the LGBT community.

    Dr. Brown – our youth are not just at risk from the gender-mad world – they are being put at risk by a mis-understanding church that really, really needs to think and rethink their response to this overwhelming issue,seriously seeking out what the Bible has to say about dealing with sexual sin and this current perversion of God’s created order.
