What happened to just being male and female, the way God made us? Why the gender blurring and gender “reassignment.” What is wrong with being masculine or feminine, in the manner in which each of us was made (born)? Biology, physiology, psychology, even the Bible itself, tell us that men and women are different, both created in their complimentary uniqueness to bring life to the world.
1 Corinthians 6:9… Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Deuteronomy 22:5… The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.
Genesis 1:27… So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Emphasis added).
Genesis 5:2… Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. (Emphasis added).
Genesis 6:19… And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. (Emphasis added).
Genesis 7:9… There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah. (Emphasis added).
Genesis 7:16… And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in. (Emphasis added).
Matthew 19:4… And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female. (Emphasis added).
Mark 10:6… But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. (Emphasis added).
The above Bible verses (KJV) clearly indicate that God created humans to be either male or female. The Bible doesn’t say anything about a “Gender X” or “Fluid Gender” or “Call Yourself A Different Gender as the Mood Fits”, etc. There are males and females. The Bible does NOT give any prophecy or indication that human beings (in flesh form) will ever “transition” from one gender into another, or experience “back and forth gender fluidity.” PERIOD! I pray for these poor souls who have somehow been deceived into thinking that they are something they are not. By rejecting who you are, you are rejecting any notion of how God intended you to be. This a form of rebellion against how God created a person to be. It’s true, none of us chose to be either male or female, however, it is not for us to decide. God made each of us, male and female, according to his plan and purpose. I am not condemning these people, but know that they are missing out on God’s plan for them while they are in this state of confusion, denial or rebellion.

‘Trans is not a trend’: Maxim Magnus on being a role model in fashion
Published 24th October 2018. CNN. Georgia Murray
Last season, according to The Fashion Spot, a record 64 transgender women and non-binary models walked in 52 shows. One such model was Belgium-born, London-based Maxim Magnus, who fell into the industry via a friend’s university project and has since starred in a Gucci campaign, and walked for the likes of Alessandra Rich, Paula Knorr and ASAI during fashion month. Following a whirlwind Spring-Summer 2019, we chatted with Maxim about being a role model for the transgender community, starting out in the industry, and dealing with trolls.
You’re a role model for young trans people — how have you chosen to use your platform?
The best way to educate people and to reach out to people is by being honest, by telling my story and telling the whole truth. It’s easy, especially when there are people giving you backlash, to start an angry conversation to prove your point, but at the end of the day that’s not going to benefit anyone. I think it’s so important to use your platform for something great. Even though I went through hell, I have been so privileged to have had the upbringing I have had, and to be able to do amazing things, that I feel I owe it to the world and to my community to speak up and tell my story. I believe that by doing it in such a way, it will educate so many people, and I always say, if I’ve impacted one person, that’s already enough, because that person will then inspire someone else, and it will be a chain.
Did you have any trans role models growing up?
I think the biggest inspiration for me was Gigi Gorgeous. Her honesty and strength made me feel like I wasn’t alone, and that’s so important in this world. In the fashion industry it would be Andreja Pejić, who made history for transgender individuals in the industry. I’ve now had the chance to spend some time with her (Maxim walked the Green Carpet Fashion Awards in Milan with Andreja in September) and she has such a beautiful soul.
Do you think the industry is becoming more diverse and accepting?
I definitely think it is becoming more diverse and accepting, but the rate at which this is happening is far too slow. It shouldn’t be a trend to be diverse, it should be incorporated into the industry as a whole, and that’s something the industry hasn’t fully grasped yet. From the outside, it can seem like a very open and accepting industry, but it certainly doesn’t always feel like that from the inside. I have been on shoots where the team has misgendered me on multiple occasions, which is something that shouldn’t happen.
What do you wish more people knew about being trans?
That you don’t become trans, and that it’s not a choice. I don’t expect people to understand what we’re going through, but the least people can do is respect us for what we have to go through, as we didn’t choose this path.
