Gender confusion

Gender confusion or gender dysphoria is the problematic state of not realizing or finding it difficult to accept what gender a person is. It is common among people who choose to not adhere to traditional gender roles, such as homosexuals, transsexuals, transvestites and cross-dressers. Parents must make the roles of mother (=females) and father (=males) very clear, so that children can learn and affirm that there are differences between boys and girls. Under good parenting, the children will not become confused about gender.[1]

The fact that there are two genders – male and female, based on one's biological sex – is affirmed through Scripture:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 (ESV)

Far leftists hold to the pseudoscientific opinion that a person's gender can be anthropogenically altered by surgery and hormone treatment.

In Europe, countries such as the United Kingdom and France have adopted policies promoting transgenderism.[2] Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they will be raising their baby "gender fluid."[3]

The question of gender dysphoria raises a question of medical ethics. Since there is a good body of scientific literature on the subject of gender dysphoria being a symptom of schizophrenia and other mental health issues, does a person suffering from gender dysphoria have the legal capacity to consent to surgical alteration of their birth gender or other forms of alleged treatment.
