Oxford’s Gender-Bender Agenda

neutral looThe rise of the gender-bender agenda, recently highlighted by the ‘bathroom wars’, is the latest phase of the ongoing sexual revolution. It is, like previous phases, imported from the US and entirely top-down and media driven.

It sees gender identity as a social construct rather than a biological given. It claims our gender is fluid, should be chosen by ourselves as we grow up and may change if we wish; it is not settled by nature (or God if you are a believer) at the time of our birth.

It is also dangerous nonsense. But it is coming your way.

It came my way this week when a polite young woman from LBC Radio contacted me. Oxford City councillors are introducing the gender-neutral option of Mx – pronounced “mix” – to official forms with a view to phasing out the conventional Mr and Ms: “Do you have views?” she asked.

Half an hour later I found myself on LBC’s Iain Dale show together with trans journalist and equality campaigner Paris Lees. (If you want to check out our chat, it’s the first item on the 16/08/16 show here (£)).

Paris’ arguments were excruciatingly unpersuasive. The stronger the binary male-and-female gender identities, she claimed, the greater the violence against women. 3935258_origThe solution is to “blur the boundaries between men and women”, she said – happily ignoring inconvenient facts like, for instance, the high level of lesbian and gay same-sex violence which some consider has reached epidemic proportions.

For my part, I welcomed the good sense of Oxford Pride chairman Rob Jordan who stated he doesn’t mind Mx as a simple addition to the current available titles, Mr and Ms. If Oxford Council wants to add a gender-neutral title in order to increase choice and inclusivity, that’s OK.

But of course it doesn’t stop with this apparently innocuous change to council paperwork. Indeed the sexual revolution does not stop anywhere. So the Oxford councillors have determined that next they want to drop Mr and Ms because these titles “are not inclusive of transgender people”.

In other words they are, wittingly or otherwise, promoting a gender-destruction ideology which reduces choice and, uninvited, imposes a gender-free framework on everyone: all Oxford residents will be titled Mx on all council forms.

The-10-Richest-Transgender-People-In-The-World-2The wider gender ideology is a cancerous virus that is creeping across the western world. It is destroying foundational categories such as ‘man’ and ‘woman’ and helping undermine time-honoured healthy family structures and relationships.

And gender activists like all sexual revolutionaries are targeting our kids. They insist even pre-pubescent childen have the right to question – and receive medical help to change – their gender identity.

Fortunately for once some influential professionals have stood their ground. The American College of Pediatricians recently issued an important statement called “Gender Ideology Harms Children”. It’s worth reading in full, but I quote here excerpts that should be read out loud to Oxford City councillors at their next council meeting:

“Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: ‘XY’ and ‘XX’ are genetic markers of sex, male and female respectively… The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident… 

“Human beings are born with a biological sex… People who identify as “feeling like the opposite sex” or “somewhere in between” do not comprise a third sex. They remain biological men or biological women.” 

I thank God for this rock of sanity and common sense that stands out against the West’s rising tide of sexual madness and gender muddle.

  1. I agree our biological sexuality is pre-determined at birth and should be respected. I also believe that adults should be free to express their sexuality according to their preferences. I do however believe that the growing sexual agenda in schools and with young children is not only legitimising but positively encouraging an enthusiasm for homosexuality and confers some special status on young people who adopt this position and is going too far.

  2. Well said Alan.

    The time for a counter attack against this narcissistic bid for cultural and political supremacy is long overdue. Let us hope it can be mounted successfully. If not the future looks very bleak indeed.

  3. Friends it is perhaps worth remembering that the Religious Society of Friends, The Quakers, did not use Mr, Ms, Mrs or any other titles and this was several hundred years ago when they were a reforming Christian movement. The concept was that we are all equal in the sight of our Lord.

  4. Society is suffering from the consequence of teaching evolution in state schools. God’s judgement has fallen because of the introduction of same sex marriage (congratulations Mr Cameron – shame on you – nothing to boast about)! Anglican & Roman Catholic schools teach creation to a degree. However we know these are largely apostate organisations. We Evangelical Bible believers are lodged between unbelievers & the apostate church. UKIP Christian Soldiers & UKIP supporters are supporting our Judeo-Christian heritage thankfully. We now find ourselves in the days of Noah & Lot (Matthew 24) so the rapture of the true church (Bride of Christ) is imminent. Let’s be led by the Holy Spirit every hour of every day & only do & speak what the Father is leading to as Jesus did

  5. I have been in touch with my grandchildren school who openly indoctrinate primary schoolchildren about homosexuality. I have never received even an acknowledgement of my complaint ditto my mp. I just do not know what to do to get this out of our schools.

  6. Helen,

    1 Tim. 2:11-15;

    Preaching, naughty naughty. Now shut up, sit down and do as you are told just like the bible tells you to

  7. Well said Alan, this wickedness is indeed a fruit of idolatry, idolatry of the creation as Creator, Paul describes the link eloquently and succinctly in Romans 1.

    There may be no typhoid, cholera, small pox and very little TB but these are the most dangerous of times for the young. Spirit snares abound.

  8. You concede far too much: it is not reasonable for the title ‘Mx’ to be used on any official form anywhere, and Paris Lees is not really a ‘she’.
