Boys and Girls Really Are Different


This may seem obvious to Christians and conservatives, but it is radical to all of the LGBT crowd and their Leftie compadres. God created us male and female, and apart from the physiology, there are some amazing mental and emotional differences. Read on. TJ

What is obvious to most children and adults became the object of heated controversy in the 1970s, when a goofy new idea took root. A small but noisy band of feminists began insisting that the sexes were identical except for their reproductive apparatus, and that any uniqueness in temperament or behavior resulted from patriarchal cultural biases. It was a radical concept that lacked any scientific support, except that which was awed and politically motivated. Nevertheless, the campaign penetrated the entire culture. Suddenly, professors and professionals who should have known better began nodding in agreement.

No doubt about it. Males and females were redundant. Parents had been wrong about their kids for at least five thousand years.

The feminist movement then took a new and dangerous turn. Its leaders began trying to redesign the way children were being raised (which is why the issue is of concern to us today, all these years later). Television talk-show host Phil Donahue and dozens of wanna-bes told parents day after day that their daughters were victims of terrible sexist bias and that their sons should be raised more like girls. There was great urgency to their message. ‘Things had to change immediately!’ they said.

Meanwhile, Father was in the kitchen making breakfast. Every effort was made to teach kids that fathers made great moms and mothers were pretty tough dudes. The book sold several million copies. And the movement had only just begun…
