(Wo)MAN Of the Year

Bruce Jenner has been named Glamour’s Woman of the Year.

He is a man.

Of course, Glamour is not the the most reliable source for finding out who the most inspirational and womanly Woman of the Year is, considering their track record. In the past Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Michelle Obama, and Rihanna have all held the title.

It’s the fact that people are all excited and praising Bruce (I refuse to call HIM Caitlyn) for being Woman of the Year.

What did he do to deserve this title?

He chopped off his reproductive organs and got a boob job. Oh, he also grew his hair out, started wearing make-up, and gets a perverted kick out of cross-dressing.

None of these things make him a woman.

If I cut off my breasts, buzz my hair, and stop wearing make-up, does that make me a man?

Bruce Jenner does not have a vagina or natural breasts. He can not get pregnant, carry a baby for 9 months, and give birth. His body type is that of a former-olympic male athlete. Not a womans’ body.

He is not a woman.

He is a confused man whom people are idolizing.

He has a mental illness.

It sickens me that this is what people are calling Woman of the Year.

They call him courageous because he’s a celebrity that decided to become transgender. Forget the two women who became the first female Army Rangers. Forget all the women serving our country. Forget the women who have saved lives or invented wonderful things.

A cross-dressing man who did nothing but got some plastic surgery and slathered on some red lipstick is recognized before them.

But like I said, the folks at Glamour obviously have no idea what they’re doing.

Also, they all apparently skipped 9th grade anatomy.

Adapting God (Stop Trying)

It’s not really the best idea to take an all-powerful, all-knowing God and try to squeeze him into your little worldview box.

He doesn’t fit.

I see it all the time, people deciding that God actually thinks one thing because it fits what they want to believe, what they’re comfortable with.

Listen, God doesn’t actually care what we think is right and wrong, unless it follows the Bible. There’s a couple glaring examples of people deciding God is on their side so that they don’t have to feel convicted. The most popular ones are homosexuality and abortion, naturally, with feminism and divorce following close behind.

God is very clear on His view of homosexuality. I’ve done a post about this even and you can read it here. Old Testament, New Testament, God is clear on what He thinks about homosexuality.

So you know someone who’s gay or lesbian, trans, bi, queer, gender-fluid, non-conforming, all these ridiculous titles. Everyone does. Does that mean God understands the situation and made it an exception? No. You can’t make God adapt to fit your situation. He doesn’t do that.

Hebrews 13:8 (NASB) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

So what he said was right and wrong 6,000 years ago, is still right and wrong today. Just because the world is changing does not mean God is. The world is becoming more and more sinful. It’s up to us to see that sin is not ok, not try to fool ourselves and everyone else into thinking God changes with the world.

Same deal with abortion. It’s murder. We all know how God feels about murder. But for some reason, abortion is different than murder because everyone knows it’s just a group of cells right? Wrong.

Well, scientifically, we’re just groups of cells controlled by an organ in our heads. Life begins at conception. It is not up to us to end it. God doesn’t make exceptions.

Sure, you have free will. You can make exceptions to morality if you want to, no one’s stopping you really. Except certain laws, of course. But don’t try to pass it off as God saying it’s ok because times have changed. No where in the Bible does it say that.

I hope I’ve made my point clear. If you would like more verses just ask. If you have Biblical proof that God changes with the times and circumstances of your personal life, feel free to share 🙂
