Concerning a boy who self-identifies as a girl and wants to join the Girl Scouts:
Corey Barrett with the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Community Centerof Colorado says the Center is seeing young people exploring their gender identity at an earlier age.
"There has definitely been this increase of questioning at an early age," Barrett said, "I think it's all about providing a healthy environment for them for that to happen. Everyone needs to be prepared or at least have an idea from a policy and procedure stand point how they're going to address that. And make sure that the public is aware of that."
Mature adults in a healthy environment would identify such a child, carefully assess his situation and put him in a place where he can begin a healing process. To say that the healthy option is to play along with gender identity disorders is a lie -- that's actually child abuse.
Loving a little one demands that we see him as a precious child of God--no matter what, and yet that love also requires us to speak the truth about the human person. And we must provide help when others are being led down a dangerous and dysfunctional path. Unfortunately, with the diagnostic manual being corrupted by political correctness, currently the help that many need is withheld by a false love. This case provides a perfect example of that.
