The current conflict and tragedy of gender dysfunction prompts one to reflect on the family stability and conventional societal structure prior to the destruction of rules and behavioral restraints and the disintegrating family structure in the 1960s.
Common sense, experience, and ageless history tells us that your birth sex assignment provides you with all the needed equipment, motivation and capacity to grow into the corresponding gender adult; a masculine man, a feminine woman. In other words, gender development naturally follows your assigned birth sex.
Deviation from this norm will only lead to a life-long confusion. And this deviation from the norm is rarely genetic or a prenatal development. It occurs when there is an active parental/family interference; either overtly or in a unconscious way. Examples include one of the parent's strong rejection to the birth sex of the child and a subsequent grooming of the child toward their contrary gender. Or the child is somehow blocked from an adequate connection and identity with the appropriate same sex parent and seeks out the comfort and connection with the opposite sex parent; and is allowed and even encouraged in this early dysfunction.
And therein rests a life-long sense of loss and conflict between birth sex and gender identity.
Boys and girls are inherently different and need to develop and grow differently. Let us help them in their natural gender development and not allow them to wander into the confusing land of options. Our children are designed by their creator. Parents tinker with disaster when they promote or allow a child to design him or her self. Parents must firmly guide their children towards a strong and distinctive male or female identity and confidence.
