THIS IS A REBLOG FROM http://lilacturtl.tumblr.com/
This is the “kid gender expert” Sheryl Rindel
The one peddling her wares in this irresponsible article.
“I love reading the Bible.”
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I have a hunch about why she wants to transify “nonconformist” kids. To stop them from being gay, mayhaps? Let us do some further research.
She also “likes” Sonrise Church of Hillsboro, Oregon, which Americans United for Separation of Church and State filed a complaint against in 1998 for for intervening in partisan politics by distributing Christian Coalition voter guides two days before an election. Specifically: Sonrise Church, Hillsboro, Oregon: During services, a church elder advised congregants to pick up Christian Coalition voter guides, which were stacked in an adjoining wing.
Her husband, Carl, has liked this on Facebook:
There’s another clue for ya.
Sheryl also liked this:
That’s an evangelical Christian diet plan, peeps.
And this missionary group:
This is the Rindels’ church:
You can look around the website but to those uninitiated in conservative nondenominational BS I can give you a little sneak preview: you wouldn’t want to go there if you’re gay.
The “elders” are all male and that’s not a coincedence:
In a conservative Calvinist church, women are expected to submit and follow, not lead.
I s’ppose a woman who wanted to lead and preach might need some ~gender nonconformity counseling~
They buy in 100%, they are fellowship group leaders. They wouldn’t be allowed to do that if they didn’t buy in all the way:
Here’s the website of the company she works for. Prepare yourself for some serious stats distortion, junk science, and manipulative used car salesman rhetoric:
Transgender(‘trans’ or TG for short) is a widely used ‘umbrella’ term describing children and youth who do not relate to, experience or express their gender identity in a way that corresponds either to social or cultural gender stereotypes, their physical anatomy or assigned birth sex.
Shit a bunch of us just got grandfathered into the “umbrella.”
It starts young:
A peer group for children ages
4-9 meeting weekly at the TransActive office in SE Portland.
Following curriculum adapted by TransActive staff for gender nonconforming children and youth, Butterflies provides a fun environment in which kids can:
- Identify personal strengths and feelings
- Increase coping skills and self-confidence
- Share experiences of being gender nonconforming with others
- Find healthy ways to make sense of their experiences and feelings
- Provide a safe place to express feelings with others who share their experience
- Encourage kids to develop friendships and support networks with each other
How about this?
“In a Bind” is a service of TransActive Education & Advocacy. We collect pre-owned chest binders from guys who don’t need them anymore and donate them to trans-masculine youth in need.
So I poked around and GUESS WHAT? You will be STUNNED to learn that there is NO MENTION AT ALL OF THE POSSIBILITY OF LIL GENDER NONCONFORMISTS BEING LESBIAN, BI, ORGAY.
Well maybe YOU are stunned, but I sure as fuck ain’t, after learning about Rindel’s other affiliations.
None of their resource lists point to anything for les/bi/gay teens or anything. Nada.
Quelle surprise. The “Trans kids” movement is a fundamentalist Calvinist-funded campaign to eliminate young gays and lesbians.
PLEASE REBLOG AND EXPOSE THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN.
