A Strong Delusion: Genitals Do Not Indicate Gender
11 Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
[Sarah Taylor | The Blaze] A Florida family is opting to raise their child, Sparrow, as “gender-neutral,” and calling the child a “theyby.”
According to WXIA-TV, Ari Dennis — Sparrow’s mom — believes that her child’s genitals don’t determine her child’s gender.
“We did not assign a sex at birth, which means when they were born, they had genitals, we know what they are, we just chose to acknowledge that those genitals don’t indicate anything about gender,” Dennis explained.
Dennis said that Sparrow, who is 11 months old, will be able to decide his or her gender when he or she is older, and even noted that her child’s birth certificate says “unknown” under “sex.”
Dennis told WXIA that she was inspired to raise her child as a gender-neutral baby after their older child “discovered gender around the age of four.”
“We are in no way prohibiting Sparrow from having a gender, and we’re not forcing them to be one gender or another,” Dennis explained. “People will be like, ‘Oh, the child will be confused!’ No. If gender is really something in you, then no one’s going to change that.”
Dennis said that she simply won’t put her child into a box.
“There’s nothing wrong with pink. There’s nothing wrong with blue,” Dennis said. “There’s something wrong with forcing kids into roles.”
