Trans media has thrown Christians for a loop
Eliel Cruz |
Last month there was an swarm of transgender news coverage:
- NBC premiered a two part special on trans kids
- Bruce Jenner* came out as trans to Diana Sawyer.
- Author and trans activist Janet Mock sat down with Oprah to discuss her New York Times bestseller Redefining Realness
- The New York Times unveiled an editorial series on topics surrounding the transgender community.
This whirlwind of trans stories doesn’t seem like it will stop anytime soon.
The secular, and even religious, communities have become increasingly accepting of sexual identities. Lesbians and gays have had decades of conversations on sexuality while the trans community was pushed back into the shadows.
And yet, despite this new wave of positive trans narratives, many Christians are responding with a level of ignorance reminiscent of the response to lesbians and gays in the 1950s.
