The Transsexual Sexual Delusion

Post note 10/28/15: Before reading we would like to emphasize that not all transgenders or transsexuals are homosexual. We learned from our friend, ex-transgender Walt Heyer, that sometimes the desire to change one's physical aspect from male to female or vice versa is caused by gender identity disorder or deep psychological trauma and damage occurring at any time of life, and is innocent of the sexual arousal aspect.

Same-sex sexual attraction is founded on delusion. This is why. Whether they consciously realize it or not, according to the biological reality of copulation, same-sex couples have to pretend that one or the other of them is the opposite sex, that is, the opposite of what their physical body characteristics and genes indicate. In other words, without getting graphic(since we all know of basic male and female parts and what sexual intercourse comprises), in the case of two men, at some point one of them has to act as the woman, supplying some contrivance of female anatomy. In the case of two women and sexual intercourse, at some point one of them has to act as the man with some contrivance of male anatomy. All they are really doing is masturbating each other. They may or may not trade places, so to speak, but there's no way around this fact. Gays can never do the thing that makes babies; they can only attempt to imitate the reproductive act in harmful, unnatural, and impotent ways. There is only one way to truly and naturally consummate, and couples of the same sex can only contrive to do it by pretending they are opposite sexes.

Key word: pretending. This goes a long way to understanding why there is so much obsession with gender, affectation, effeminate-ism, butch-ness, gender role reversals, cross-dressing, transgendering, and transexuality taking place. Cosmetic, hormonal, and surgically-rendered transsexuals may be the ultimate masquerade effort. It's a way of playing god by contriving to make oneself over into the opposite of who they are. With the help of corrupt doctors (even practicing at children's hospitals now) who care nothing for the mental health of these people, both males and females have perfectly healthy body parts removed or disfigured, parts needed for important and essential lifelong human functions, and then in the face of these permanent losses and disfigurements they contrive to present themselves as the opposite sex. It's the epitome of despising one's body, the act of procreation, and human posterity. In the case of male transsexuals, not only do they have healthy body parts cut away and mutilated, they take hormones to reduce facial and body hair, work to alter the timbre of the voice, and have more disfiguring surgeries such as to reduce male facial bone structure and augment the breasts. Still, the male characteristics such as height, build, body bone structure, hands and feet size, usually give them away. It's the same sort of thing in reverse with female transsexuals.Try as transsexuals might, these superficial make-overs may still end up looking like a costume and an act. How sad that no supposed friend will tell them how tragic, unnatural, and ridiculous they have made themselves.

The truth is there are males who are less masculine, and females who are less feminine. Lots of people have a harder time fitting in, learning proper masculinity or femininity, finding a mate. Many have been abused and damaged. But despite these setbacks, proper gender identification and mating are sane and right and real things to strive for. All healthy humans are male or female in all the most important ways. What different  transsexuals think and do sexually, with all their misguided wishing and contriving, may amount to anything from mental/emotional illness/disorder to a prideful rebellion against reality and God. And what an unnatural obsession! It's funny, because those who cry out for "a genderless utopia" are completely obsessed with gender to the point where they are making up new ones right and left!

What happens when child and young adult transgenders or transsexuals mature a little with age and experience and come to realize how deluded, obsessive, or egocentric this was? Will the young he-to-she in this video wish to continue affectedly acting like a flirty girly teenager in short-shorts when he has become a frumpy middle-aged adult, hopefully a bit wiser, who doesn't care so much about sex and sexuality anymore, much less taking all those female sex hormones? What if these transsexuals come to realize in lonely retrospect that what they are first is a whole person? What if they eventually come to see that they could have had a normal life and family had they been offered some help instead of being indulged in their self-absorbed fantasies regarding gender, sex, and sexuality when they were young and oversexed?

This whole transsexual charade, which parents and friends of young people in particular often incomprehensibly play right along with and even encourage, displays a total lack of consideration for health, biology, life, reality, procreation, essential gender roles, posterity, humanity, the human condition, and God. Google transsexual images and you'll get a glimpse of that dark deluded pornographic world. It's incredible that families and friends of these people actually promote such limitless disorder and perverseness, but that's what's trendy right now. Sad to say, we may play god and play dress-up now, but there will be negative consequences here, and especially hereafter.

Maybe there is really no such thing as same-sex attraction. Again, no matter how such people present or mutilate themselves, the same-sex couple must always play-act they are opposite sexes if they are to pretend to copulate, hence, they are actually opposite-sex attracted after all. Apparently there's no way around biology. In the case of transgenders or transsexuals, among other things, such a male will never react to sexual stimulation as a female does in order to prepare for intercourse, will never have a real female orgasm, a menstrual period, or conceive. The female trannie will never have real male anatomy, ejaculate sperm, or father a child. What's really happening is all sorts of phony heterosexual role-playing. It's what C. S. Lewis called good going bad. Remember, sexual feelings are just sexual feelings. They can take all sorts of wrong directions. And when they do people get hurt.

The young transsexual man in the video mentioned above insists he is not "gay," or homosexual. If he is telling the truth we can only conclude that he is mentally or emotionally ill. Whatever his mental state, a male who presents himself as a winsome female as an attraction to other men is of course behaving homosexually. This behavior is actually a lot more pathetic than those who don't cross-dress and otherwise effeminize themselves. Such people apparently delude themselves into thinking they are actually the opposite sex. And their families and friends support this delusion. Encouraging a person's mental or emotional illness is hurtful.

Whether this condition stems from mental illness or is a means for sexual pleasure, or a combination of both, it's all wrong. These distinctions and nuances are being ignored in the ignorant, uncaring face of political correctness.

Saw a young man in Target the other day walking and talking with another person. You could totally tell he was a male by his voice, build, bone structure, but his hair, clothes, and mannerisms were extreme, outrageous, and unmanly. It was like looking at a walking, talking perverse cartoon or caricature. Why does this poor soul present himself like this, as a not normal male? One reason may be to advertise, advertising to the world that he will pretend to play the part of a woman for another man. It's Halloween, a masquerade ball, a stage show. All for pretend sex.

Isn't this sad?  Isn't it deluded? Our hearts go out to these poor souls. In addition, the actual behaviors involved are physically, emotionally, and mentally maladaptive and very dangerous. A society, in its government, schools, businesses, and media, that allows, encourages, publishes, sells, legalizes, celebrates, and parades such obvious and destructive delusion (and intimidates and punishes those who will not go along) has obviously lost any concern for reality, its own humanity, and its own future. In many aspects, this is where our culture is today.

How does one keep one's sanity is the midst of such widespread, publicized, and publicly-encouraged delusion?  Here at Standard of Liberty we keep our heads by focusing on both knowledge and charity. The knowledge or truth part is about opening our eyes to what's going on and knowing that a lot of it is terribly delusional and wicked and harmful. It's knowing that God gave us agency and Christ or we couldn't learn anything. It's about how being sinful and destructive is always mankind's choice. The charity part is about loving and trusting God and His great plan of patience, mercy, and repentance, feeling His love for us and all of His children and praying and hoping for the eternal best for everyone. We try to keep God dominant in our emotions, Christ our chief reliance, and the Spirit of the Lord our source of truth, strength, and comfort.

We love this scripture: O all ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, and feast upon his love; for ye may, if your minds are firm, forever.
Jacob 3:2


Why is it that those with same-sex sexual attractions are now considered by many to be a special class of person, and now a special class of LDS person? Why is it that the rest of us have to school our feelings, as the hymn says, but they don't? The flimsy argument LDS gays are hanging their hats on these days is that homosexual feelings/temptations are not sinful. What? We sang a hymn last week in church asking the Lord to keep us free from temptations. Of course temptations toward sinful behaviors are destructive! They sully our souls and corrupt our characters and lead us to more sin. We know there are some who are pushing this strange idea and we disagree in favor of what we know to be true from experience, what we find in the scriptures, what the great majority of leaders have repeatedly taught, and what the Spirit tells us.

With great intellectual dishonesty, those who claim same-sex attraction (which is sexual or else it would be friendship or familial affection) also claim their feelings are exempt from any hint of sin. How convenient for them. Homosexual feelings, also referred to as temptations, are not even considered a weakness by these proponents. While the rest of us have to repent of our sinful inclinations, weaknesses, or temptations, they don't. They say their temptations are not sinful. Why not? Why couldn't anybody say that about their favorite sinful mental exercises/entertainments? There are plenty of scriptures and prophets who say these things are wicked inside and out. So when did these certain people get special privileges? We've said it many times: since the world accepted homosexuality, that's when. Not only has the world been hoodwinked into believing that a case of very bad sexual manners is an identity, it has bought the lie that it is harmless. Again we say, sex is a serious thing; if it is misused someone gets hurt. 

Proud LDS gays like to put themselves on the same plane as Jesus. (How's that for arrogance?) They compare their temptations to how Satan tempted even Jesus. Here, they have made a big mistake. Yes, Jesus suffered Satan to offer up his temptations, but Jesus paid these temptations no heed (D&C 20:22). There was no hesitation; he summarily dismissed Satan. Satan's temptations found no place in Christ's heart. He didn't buy into them; Jesus did not indulge for a second in those temptations. On the contrary, people who publicly claim same-sex attraction have not only given heed to these temptations (and probably acted on them to some degree including using pornography), they make these sinful temptations their permanent identity. If they really want to be like Jesus, they have to pay these temptations no heed, not for a second. They have to to turn around and walk the other way. That may be difficult; help is available. But no, they say there is no help. They insist they cannot overcome their feelings of sexual attraction toward those of their same gender. In their circles, the subject of reorienting their sexual desires doesn't even come up except to disparage and  vilify such a course. In essence, they are saying, like St. Augustine once rather humorously confessed, "Lord, make me chaste, just not yet."

Let's compare homosexual feelings to adulterous feelings. Are adulterous feelings not temptations? Are these thoughts and the emotions that follow them not sinful? Try looking at it this way. What if a "gay" man married to a woman confessed to his bishop that he was sexually attracted to another woman's husband? Not only is he indulging in homosexual feelings, he is indulging in adulterous feelings. Does he get in trouble for either of these? Or is he exempt from all forms of purity and chastity? If it's our hearts that matter to God, if we treasure wicked things in our hearts and are not repentant, does it really matter if we ultimately "act out" (however people define it) or not? Aren't we sexually immoral at heart? Isn't that state of uncleanness where our heart is? Aren't we supposed to care about the state of our immortal souls?

The fact is, the prideful who are claiming same-sex attraction are making themselves known for main reason, that is, to move the rest of us toward accepting their desired behaviors. Why else? Do you think they just want sympathy and acceptance and validation for their miserable same-sex attraction? Of course not. What they want is license. The scriptures call it licentiousness. That's what they want. But they go farther than that. They want more than allowances. They want to be put on a pedestal. They want to establish a brave new world of their own making. They want to be our leaders. They've said so. (Those who are caught up in homosexuality but think they are not of this ilk need to know that they are being exploited and aiding and abetting the cause.)

Homosexuality spreads. It spreads from man to man, from men to boys, from boys to boys, and it's dangerous to health, hence the AIDS/HIV epidemic. (While sodomy is the only way homosexuals can contrive sex, sodomy spreads the disease among depraved heterosexuals too as we see in Africa.) Contrary to rampant gay propaganda, honest gays admit this is a gay disease here in America. According to the CDC, younger and younger males are contracting the horrible life-shortening illness. What a tragedy! But not hard to understand given our sexually licentious environment and the foolishness of oversexed youth. Just think, sex with no persnickety emotional females involved at all. Or in the case of lesbianism, no horrid abusive men. Okay its not real sex---you have to pretend that one of you is the opposite sex---but you get the same sorts of physical sexual feelings. And it's quick, easy, casual sex with no reproductive responsibilities whatsoever. It's a good bet that every promiscuous, unrepentant, self-labeled, SSA person today knows that the internet can produce hundreds of attractive possible partners nearby with the touch of a finger. (Yes, attractiveness is often a prerequisite.) Quick and easy is right. No risk of future family responsibilities. No emotional attachments. Just an exciting, sexually-stimulating act, the kind that is hailed in mainstream society today as brave, honest, edgy, popular.You may even get a letter of praise from the President of the United States.

Feelings/temptations such as these not sinful? Of course they are. If you experience sexual feelings about someone you're not supposed to have sexual feelings about (including persons of your own gender) that's called lust, and it's one of those seven deadly sins. Time to repent. Oh, wait. Those with same-sex attractions, unlike the rest of us, are exempt from God's demands. They don't have to repent.

Just kidding. If we care about their immortal souls,of course those who experience SSA aren't exempt. Of course they need to repent of their sinful temptations just like the rest of us must (that is unless they are severely mentally deficient, which no one is saying they are). Many of us are just too afraid now to tell them. Indeed, for most people the gay label has become more intimidating than God Himself.
