Why Emily Tressa’s gender reassignment is bad for kids struggling with homosexuality
Emily Tressa was born a boy but says she always knew she was a girl. “Am I the only one that feels like this? That I’m trapped in the wrong body?” she told WRGB Albany. She is hailed as a ‘pioneer’ after becoming one of the youngest people to have this surgery. Inevitably, she would inspire other minors to undergo reassignment surgery. It’s bad news for parents like Anmarie Calgaro. She is suing the state for allowing her minor son to have gender reassignment without her consent.

New laws that protect what the Bible calls “sin”
Unbelievably, new laws now protect minors from disclosing to their parents this type of surgery including abortion. In other words, liberal politicians are now protecting what the Bible calls “sin” and “abomination.” No wonder, leftist frowns at Christians who they see as medieval. Interestingly, they refer to these laws as progressive.
Lawmakers justify this trend by citing a pediatric study that says up to 50.8% have attempted suicide. But this conclusion ignores the real issue: the transgender movement fostering and indulging gender confusion in our youth, which clearly corresponds to higher depression and attempts at taking one’s own life.
1 Corinthians 6:20
God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

The good and the bad about Emily’s decision
Emily claims she is happy. After all, she can now have sexual relations with other men and feel beautiful from the inside. “It feels almost like, I’m finally fully complete now,” she said. However, we can only be complete with Christ, apart from Jesus we will never be happy. Transgenders like her will eventually discover the tragedy that comes in messing up our body. Our body is God’s temple. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
Others who underwent the same surgery regret their decision. Vins Santiago, Philippine’s first full transgender went through a difficult life after his surgery. Likewise, former transgender Walt Heyer said: “transitioning won’t heal real issues.” In fact, despite Mark Estephen’s transgender fame and fortune, she never had real joy.
Misguided love and attention
The Apostles tells us to look up to righteous people who obey God. When the media praise people like Emily, it echoes as something admirable. End-time prophecy is clear. In the last days, people will be lovers of themselves, disobedient to their parents, and conceited (2 Timothy 13). Recently, the UK’s misguided directives to primary students as young as 6 to 10 years old are to encourage “self-stimulation.” Like Emily’s mom, they think they are doing the right thing.
The support of Emily’s mom out of love and acceptance doesn’t make it upright. The Bible tells us that there is a way that seems right, but in the end, leads to destruction. (Proverbs 14:12)
