Understanding Transgenderism – Part 4

As we talked about last time, faithfulness to God’s word prevents Christians from adopting transgender philosophy as an explanation for boys who think they’re girls and girls who think they’re boys. What then are the alternatives explanations for us to consider for these experiences?

Mental illness may play its role for some, but it would be dismissive to stop there as though that explains everything–it’s certainly not why the transgender explanation is so compelling to so many. But the movement begins to make more sense when you consider the possibility that for many people, transgenderism is becoming a coping mechanism for a variety of feelings of social alienation.
