The Curious Case of the 6-Year-Old Transgender Student

From the Christian Post:

“The Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled on Sunday that Coy Mathis, a transgender 6-year-old who identifies as a female, has the legal right to use the girls’ bathroom at his elementary school in Fountain, Colo.

The decision marks the first ruling in the nation holding that transgender students must be allowed to use bathrooms that match the gender with which they identify…

Mathis, who was born a male, began to express himself as a female at 18 months and was recognized as a girl at age 4 by his family.”

Delight in Truth is shocked NOT at the legal development but at the decision made by this family to alter this boy’s natural gender identity starting at age 18 months.  What child (in this case infant and toddler)  is capable of identifying themselves as the opposite gender without pressure from the outside?  What two or three-year-old boy is going to say “I am a girl” if the parents did not imprint that untruth into their little brain?!

I would like to present a theory with respect to this development, one that has been mentioned before but progressivists will suppress it at all cost.

There is a psychiatric disorder in the DSM V called Münchausen-by-proxy and it describes a behavior pattern in which a caregiver deliberately fabricates, and/or induces physical, psychological, behavioral, and/or mental health problems in those who are in their care.

Examples of this include benign stuff like adding blood to the child’s urine sample to deadly actions like administering insulin to toddlers to induce seizures in order to impress the medical establishment into undergoing massive medical work-ups.  Every case with this kind of diagnosis is unique and shocking because the parent or caregiver deliberately hurts a small child in their grandiose delusional frame of mind.

It may be that the Mathis family is guilty of Münchausen-by-proxy.  In this case the damage is not physical (yet), but psychological. They could have fed the boy the idea that he is a girl starting at the age of 18 months, in order to get to the national stage where they can receive the accolades of the LGBT community and our depravity-oriented society.

How sad is this if true?

The Bible tells us that in the last days moral behavior will get from bad to worse, just like in the days of Isaiah when he said “they proclaim their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it.” Isaiah 3:9

Peter warns us “that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires” pushing an agenda in open rebellion towards God, and suppressing obvious truth.

Like the truth that an 18 month old boy is a boy.

The church needs to know these developments because they signal that the end time is near as told repeatedly in the Bible.
