When I was a teenager, summer was a time to hang out (not hook up) with neighborhood friends. We met at the park, played cards and board games at each other’s house (moms were usually at home during the day, working in another room, not supervising). There were always plenty of kids. Today kids are fewer and farther between. Their “socializing” is primarily on cell phones and computers. They are exposed to stuff I couldn’t have imagined.
The Testimony of a Teenager
Hear this testimony of one vulnerable young teenager, a girl named Chloe Cole: “At the age of 11 I made my first Instagram account. I had unmonitored internet access. It wasn’t long until I was exposed to a ton of LGBTQ content online, and I had never seen anything like it. You mean that all I have to do is subscribe to this ideology, and then I’m accepted, celebrated, and a valued member of the most talked about community on earth? When I was 12 I told my parents that I was a boy. Like many parents in that situation they didn’t have a clue what to do. At 13 years old on the advice of so-called medical professionals, I was put on purity (does she mean ‘puberty?’) blocking medication, and only a month later I was given my first testosterone injection. The gender clinic presented my parents with the classic false dichotomy regarding children with gender dysphoria: ‘Would you rather have a dead daughter or a living son?’ Scared for my life my parents were prepared to sign anything the doctors asked. At 15 I went under the knife for a radical mastectomy–the kind breast cancer patient get.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;Psalm 139:14
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.”
I Felt Like a Celebrity
“Transgender people are the most celebrated subset of the LGBTQ ‘community’. I saw unbelievable amounts of praise and attention they got online, and subconsciously I yearned to have piece of it. With every milestone in my medical transition, I was given more and more attention in celebration. It was the ultimate high. Even in person I got more attention. Girls would have crushes on me, and I would have people come up to me in the hallways asking to make friends It was unprecedented for me I felt like a celebrity.
Motherhood was Stolen From Me
“At 16, I finally realized what happened to me–that I had made a huge mistake. I realized the beauty of motherhood was stolen from me by medical professionals who my family entrusted me to. I realized that I wanted to be what I always was and forever will be–a woman.”
Chloe was, is, and always will be female, but a permanently disfigured and mutilated one who can’t restore the body parts and functions she lost to predaters. I encourage all parents to raise your children in the truths of God’s Word, and carefully monitor who and what they both listen to.
