Is there a third gender, something other than male or female? Or can you be born a man but become a woman? That's the agenda the left and LGBTQ activists are trying to fervently push in America, including on young children. And if you don't agree? Well, beware of lawsuits and social persecution.
Medical professionals have bought into this fear mongering, forsaking their training to counsel and investigate a patient's problems and instead just giving a patient whatever he or she demands, even if its hormone-altering drugs in unthinkable dosages or body mutilation to underaged children.
Jamie Shupe is one stunning example of the terrible crossfire consequences of the LGBTQ agenda and medical professionals' cooperation. Shupe was sexually abused by his uncle as a young boy and severely beaten by his parents. After several years in the military, he undeniably had PTSD. His childhood trauma and military experience left him battered, and he convinced himself he wanted to be a woman.
So he asked a nurse practitioner for hormone altering drugs, and though she had never met him before, she just wrote him a prescription. "The nurse practitioner ignored that I have chronic post-traumatic stress disorder, having previously served in the military for almost 18 years. All of my doctors agree on that. Others believe that I have bipolar disorder and possibly borderline personality disorder.I should have been stopped, but out-of-control, transgender activism had made the nurse practitioner too scared to say no," shares Shupe in a stunning op-ed.
Shupe went on to take horrendously high doses of estrogen but stopped short of mutilating surgery. At that point, he realized he was not happy as a woman and then tried to become "non-binary," basically neither male nor female. He was hoisted up quickly by LGBTQ activists and put in front of a judge that had a transgendered child who granted him the first legal status of a non-binary person.
Shupe now believes that judge should have recused herself because of a conflict of interest. But it is too late. The landmark ruling on Shupe opened up 11 other states to granting persons non-binary status, issuing a host of confusion. "There’s abundant online literature informing transgender people that their sex change isn’t real. But when a licensed medical doctor writes you a letter essentially stating that you were born in the wrong body and a government agency or court of law validates that delusion, you become damaged and confused. I certainly did," shares Shupe.
After his non-binary pronouncement, Shupe later wanted to return to being a man. He found no satisfaction in trying to pretend to be another gender. He is now speaking out against the LGBTQ agenda that is pressuring medical professionals to push hurt and confused people down a path that often leads to lasting damage.
Franklin Graham was moved by Shupe's story and wanted everyone to read about the hidden dangers lurking beneath the LGBTQ movement. He wrote on Facebook: "Jamie Shupe is a U.S. military veteran who says he was America’s first legally recognized 'non-binary' person—and it was all a sham, a grand illusion. After years of confusion and treatment by what he calls 'quacks in the medical community' who he said hid him 'in the women’s bathroom with people’s wives and daughters,' Jamie is now admitting that there is no third gender after all. People are either male or female, as the Word of God tells us. He is a male who identified as a female and then as non-binary—now he has reclaimed his male birth sex. Pray for Jamie, and take a few minutes to read about his journey in the news link below. It exposes the truth about some of the gender trends we are witnessing in our culture today," wrote Graham.
"Two fake gender identities couldn’t hide the truth of my biological reality. There is no third gender or third sex. Like me, intersex people are either male or female. Their condition is the result of a disorder of sexual development, and they need help and compassion. I played my part in pushing forward this grand illusion. I’m not the victim here. My wife, daughter, and the American taxpayers are—they are the real victims," ended Shupe's op-ed. His confession is a cautionary tale to all Americans.
