Politics of Transgenderism

Results of 2020 Biden Survey


1 Introduction

In 1952, the U.S. media created a sensation over the first male homosexual to receive surgery and hormones in order to resemble a woman. ‘Christine’ Jorgensen became an evangelist for the procedure. Over time, his followers generated an industry large enough to force the mental health profession to consider desires to ‘be’ the opposite sex as ‘normal.’ Likewise, those who practiced ‘sex reassignment’ were viewed as providing a ‘cure.’ This collaboration between the mental health profession and the LGBT movement has completely reversed ‘common sense’ laws against genital mutilation in favor of a new ‘legal reality.’ Now, even declaring oneself transgender enables them to change their birth certificate.

Presidential candidate Joe Biden endorses this new, psychological ‘reality.’ He says transgenderism is a civil right and will, if elected, “restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms” (joebiden.com/lgbtq-policy). Doubling down, Biden called “the violence against transgender and gender-nonconforming people an ‘epidemic that needs national leadership’ and accused the Trump administration of fueling ‘the flames of transphobia’” (nbcnews.com, October 19, 2020).

FRR Jun 2019 | Massachusetts Proves Homosexuality is Learned

In 1987, Boston gay activist Michael Swift — assuming homosexuality is learned — asserted:

“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress,… Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.… The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence —will be abolished.… Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory.… All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men.… We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions.… Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.” (Gay Community News, Feb. 15–21, 1987)

In 1987, AIDS was killing scores of gays every week. This seemed to validate the traditional view of homosexuality as being an acquired personal and social poison (not to mention, dirty and disease ridden). Yet, the traditional Christian belief that homosexuality must be suppressed to preserve society was being abandoned for a more ‘modern’ mental health philosophy: (1) you have a ‘right’ to your sexual desires; (2) society functions just as well with heterosexuals or homosexuals; so (3) society must be ‘corrected’ to allow (especially) homosexual desires to be embraced.

Homosexuality Is Indeed a Large Risk Factor for Sexual Abuse of Children: A Response to Plante

By Paul Cameron, Kirk Cameron, & Kay Proctor

How times have changed. Fathers of the Church joined ancient philosophers in considering men with homosexual desires more apt to seduce boys. Today, these ancient warnings have been cast aside as nothing more than (bigoted, homophobic) old wives’ tales. Consider psychiatrist Thomas Plante, residing scholar at Santa Clara University and adjunct professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine. America published an essay by Dr. Plante in October 2018, entitled ‘No, Homosexuality is Not a Risk Factor for the Sexual Abuse of Children’ 1. In it, he decries the belief that “banning homosexual men from the priesthood” would help prevent sexual victimization in the church. Instead, “it is often falsely believed that men with homosexual orientations cannot be trusted around male children and that their sexual impulse control is poor.” Indeed, Plante argues that “sexual orientation is not a risk factor at all,” contrary to the common sense notion that homosexuals must be to blame, especially since 80% of victims were boys.

FRR Jan 2019 | The Plot by Gay Psychiatrists to Normalize Homosexuality

Like global warming or evolution, there is a scientific ‘consensus’ today about homosexuality: namely, that homosexuality is just as normal as heterosexuality. In fact, it is so ‘normal’ that any suggestion to the contrary must be suppressed, ridiculed, attacked, etc. Interestingly, this ‘consensus’ and its virulent reaction against any naysaying point to seemingly contradictory realities: (1) that the ‘truth’ about homosexuality’s ‘benign-ness’ is so solid and well-proven in the eyes of our cultural elite that no further debate or discussion is necessary; and (2) that the actual facts supporting the consensus are so weak that they dare not be challenged lest the emperor’s nakedness be exposed.

FRR Mar 2018 | Pedophilia By Any Other Name is Still Homosexuality

As a scientific organization, FRI is concerned about recent discussions regarding clergy sexual abuse. Numerous authors, such as a recent Chilean post by Riccardo Cascioli1, seem to believe there is a significant difference between ‘pedophiles’ and homosexuals. Indeed, Riccardo Cascioli re-makes a point often made: “the so-called ‘pedophilia cases’ are actually an overwhelming majority of incidents of homosexuality” where

Mar 2017 | FRI Chairman Addresses UCCS College Republicans

FRI Chairman, Dr. Paul Cameron, addressed the College Republican campus group at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs on March 8, 2017. We have posted a portion of the video of his address here. Dr. Cameron’s presentation was entitled “Will Homosexuality’s Rapid Rise Among Youth Ruin Trump’s Plans?”

He cited new research on the linkage between the demographic crisis facing the U.S. and the Western world in general, the recent growth in homosexuality among both our youth and young adults, and the fact that states which voted for Hillary Clinton in the recent U.S. presidential election exhibit significantly lower average total fertility rates than states which voted for Donald Trump.

FRR Jan 2017 | 35-Year Natural Experiment Suggests Gay Love No Equal of Heterosexual Love

Gay activists go to great lengths to distinguish homosexual love and gay sex from sex with children or animals. Gay love, they assert, is just like man-woman love, leading to the same kinds and qualities of sexual desire and commitment. Homosexuality and heterosexuality should thus be regarded and treated equally.

FRR Nov 2016 | Three Scientific Studies Influence Poland

In FRI’s recent trip to Europe, three scientific studies Dr. Cameron brought to Poland jolted its Parliament. They also excited audiences across the country, and made the media furious. Each of these studies showed why accepting the LGBT agenda is a big mistake.

FRR Mar 2014 | Are Gay Parents More Apt to Commit Incest?

The push for gay marriage is also a push for acceptance of homosexual parents. But what are the risks of homosexual parenting? It is well-documented that those who engage in homosexuality are — as a group — much more likely to molest children than are heterosexuals. We also know that parents are constantly around their children. So what about homosexual parents? Are they more likely to molest their own children, that is, to commit incest? Read more »

Feb 2014 | Response to Marvin Olasky

Dr. Marvin Olasky has responded here to our critique of his column in World Magazine regarding Uganda’s legislative efforts to curb homosexuality. While we respect Dr. Olasky’s analysis and commentary in many areas, we disagree with his thinking in this instance. In fact, on its face, Olasky’s position (similar to that of many Evangelical leaders/commentators) leads to a troubling disregard of the importance of law in curbing and containing sexual sin, as well as a glossing over of the destructive consequences of homosexual behavior.

FRR Nov 2013 | Homosexual Interests and ‘Fixation’

Homosexuals today commonly assert ‘I was born that way,’ and many accept it. Some of this ‘born so’ posturing is just that — posturing. There is a great deal of evidence against the notion that homosexuals are ‘born that way.’ For instance, why should it be that an identical twin has about the same likelihood of having the homosexual preferences of his twin, as he does when compared to another non-twin sibling who does not share an identical genetic makeup? Why is it true that boys raised in cities are 3 to 4 times more apt, and those raised in religiously devout homes 3 to 4 times less apt, to have homosexual tastes as those raised in more rural areas or less religious homes? A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) of ~150,000 teens aged 14–18 years old provides yet more evidence against the ‘born that way’ claim. [1]

FRR Oct 2013 | Belief in God versus Belief in Man

The first commandment to mankind recorded in the Bible [1] — “be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it” — is social. The God of the Bible gave man the ability to control (“subdue”) the earth. He also commanded man to have children and to increase in number. That having children — the ‘fruit of sex’ — is specifically commanded suggests the possibility that societies tend naturally toward social suicide.
