There are only two sexes, as designed by God, and that is male and female. There are many genders, as designed by society’s liberals, for diabolical purposes.
Today’s radical and ‘inclusive’ language is wrecking children’s thinking and behaviour
December 19, 2016 (Every (Everyday For Life Canada) -- Are you aware of the fact that unelected representatives at the United Nations recently established a new position of ombudsman for LGTB "rights?" The mandate for the person that assumes the job is to promote human sexuality expressed by terms such as "sexual orientation," "gender identity" and "gender expression." It's the "inclusive" language of homosexuality. However, this is not a "right" found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In the document, there is no such thing as LGTB or sexual "rights." This new "right" is pushed by activists to serve their own goal to get greater world promotion and acceptance of homosexuality. We know what the new ombudsman will not do: be an advocate for heterosexuality, marriage, procreation, love, chastity, children and family.
There is another objective behind the new UN position. It's to put pressure on those countries that don't culturally recognize homosexuality and use the more persuasive concept of "right" to do so. In Canada, the United States and most other Western nations, public education is being used to achieve the same goal. Many Western countries have approved radical sex "curriculum" programs that sexualize children at an early age and teach them about contraception, abortion ("reproductive rights"), sexual consent and homosexuality. In the United States, these programs are known as comprehensive sex "education." Embedded in the sex "education" programs is an inclusive language of sex that aims to change the thought and behaviour of children and the rest of society about human sexuality.
The tentacles of sexual revolution of the 1960s continue to reach out today in Western countries and at the United Nations. False sexual and reproductive "rights" in the Americas and Europe have increased abortions, led to higher rates of sexual infections and diseases, given us more pornography and too many broken families that leaves many children growing up without fathers. We are paying a high price in putting human sexuality outside of marriage, traditional family and morality. The pursuit of sex has become its own end.
Defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention comprehensive sex education is “A planned, sequential K-12 curriculum that is part of a comprehensive school health education approach which addresses age-appropriate physical, mental, emotional and social dimensions of human sexuality." The programs, however, are too often not age appropriate because they expose children to the idea that sex is always "safe and fun." In short, the programs introduce an explicit language to students about sex but with nice sounding words like: age appropriate, comprehensive, safe, education and fun. As the students learn the words, they learn how to think in sexual terms and many end up putting the words into experience. They end up having sexual relations at a young age. Nobody should be surprised because human beings use language to think and thinking leads to action. When thinking is distorted and irresponsible, it can result in dangerous consequences. The language of sex works the same way as the language of business, entertainment or any subject.
Here's one example of how one word has shaped thought and behaviour about human sexuality. It's the word gender. Today, gender is not so much connected to biology. It refers to other words, feelings and meanings. Gender is now about "sexual orientation," "gender identity" and "gender expression." In Ontario, we now have laws to protect the meaning of these words. Gender has turned human sex into an abstract concept away from the binary idea of male or female, boy or girl. As a result, there is an expanding and factually unchecked list of gender possibilities. The LGTBQ (lesbian, gay, transgendered, bisexual, queer, questioning) acronym continues to mushroom. It's language and meaning out of control.
Just consider this. The city of New York has 31 legally protected genders. Facebook has gone further by giving account holders 58 genders in the United States and 71 in the United Kingdom. In Ontario, the new sex curriculum will teach children at least six genders. There is no science to back these new words. It's being pushed by the politics of power, sex and correctness. And those that control language shape thought and behaviour. Laws are in place to make that one disagrees, otherwise the person can be charged with hate speech, fined or even go to jail.
These newly constructed words, acronyms and expressions about human sexuality are very confusing to young people in schools. They confuse adults. Can you define gender, sexual orientation and the difference between gender identity and expression? There you go, not so easy. That's the whole purpose, to confuse. Just imagine how a teacher can misuse this new language of gender to shape what children think about themselves and their sexuality. A teacher could say to a class: "Boys and girls you may not be a boy or a girl but any one of these 31 genders." Here's the New York list of genders and consider just how confusing these made up words are. We will spare you the longer list from Facebook:
3. Drag King
4. Drag Queen
5. Femme Queen

16. Trans Person

25. Non-Binary Transgender

28. Gender Blender
30. Person of Transgender Experience
According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the word gender has this origin and meaning:
gender (n.)c. 1300, "kind, sort, class," from Old French gendre, genre "kind, species; character; gender" (12c., Modern French genre), from stem of Latin genus (genitive generis) "race, stock, family; kind, rank, order; species," also "(male or female) sex," from PIE root gene. Also used in Latin to translate Aristotle's Greek grammatical term genos. The grammatical sense is attested in English from late 14th century.
The "male-or-female sex" sense is attested in English from early 15c. As sex (n.) took on erotic qualities in 20c., gender came to be the usual English word for "sex of a human being," in which use it was at first regarded as colloquial or humorous. Later often in feminist writing with reference to social attributes as much as biological qualities; this sense first attested 1963. Gender-bender is from 1977, popularized from 1980, with reference to pop star David Bowie.
The term sexual orientation underplays the physical fact that human beings are biologically male or female. Much of the focus in the sex curriculum is not on heterosexuality and traditional marriage but on homosexuality and new family structures such as two dads or two moms. These ideas can be easier taught with use of generic terms such as "sexual orientation," "gender identity" and "gender expression." Here's how these words are defined:
1. Gender identity. A person’s sense of self, with respect to being male or female. Gender identity is different from sexual orientation, and may be different from birth-assigned sex.
2. Gender expression. The manner in which individuals express their gender identity to others. A person’s gender expression is often based on a social construct of gender, which is either stereotypically male or female. However, some individuals who do not see themselves as being either male or female but as some combination of the two genders, or as without gender, choose to express their identity in terms of a multiple model of gender, mixing both male and female expressions.
