“While some view transgenderism as a medical condition, or state that those who struggle with homosexual feelings were “born this way,” Christians believe that it all goes back to the same spiritual issue — the same predicament all men everywhere face without Christ.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News) Former vice president Joe Biden, who is currently campaigning for the presidency, posted to Twitter on Saturday that he believes “transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.” Biden has expressed his support for those who identify as the opposite sex, or who struggle with attraction toward the same sex, for the past eight years.
“Let’s be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights,” he wrote.
While the post generated over 37K likes, it also received much push-back from commenters.
“Lets be clear: you want men who ‘feel like a woman’ to share the changing room with women and girls. You want to take away women’s sex based rights because it makes trans males feel better. Lets be really clear: you don’t care about the safety of women,” one wrote.
“What about women’s rights to safety and privacy Joe?” another asked. “What about the rights of women and girls to compete with each other in sport without an invasion of ‘trans women.’ Trans rights must not impinge on women’s rights.”
