NFL Owners MeetingJuly 31, 2018
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will go down in history as the first NFL team to host an LGBT tailgate party. I’m sure you remember that back in 2014, the Buccaneers hosted a gay pride event before playing the St. Louis Rams. Since then, almost every NFL team has developed some type of partnership with the LGBT community. Because your organization was one of the first NFL teams to collaborate with the LGBT community, I decided to put you on the hot seat first.
As the 2018 NFL preseason kicks off, I want to start the 2018 NFL season answering the question: What is wrong with someone wanting to have a sex change? Mr. Glazer, have you noticed that there seemed to be a growing number of young people struggling with identity issues?
During adolescence, not only is our identity developed but the type of self-esteem we often end up with as an adult is cultivated as well. When a teen struggles to love himself or herself, he or she often does things like wanting expensive things, acting rebellious, and overly identifying with a famous person. When a teen is struggling with extremely low self-esteem, he or she will often try to kill himself or herself, involve himself or herself in risky behavior that could destroy his or her life or dream of having plastic surgery.
We live in a society where it was wrong for a White woman (Rachel Dolezal) to transform herself into a Black woman, but it is okay for a boy to think of himself as a girl. Are we headed to a place as a society where no one wants to be who he or she was created to be?
Instead of our society teaching young people the importance of being content in the way God created them, I’m noticing that we are encouraging kids nowadays to do what makes them feel happy even if this means completely changing who they were created to be. Ultimately, we were created to please God. The more we push God away as a nation, the more our children will try to find inner peace in unhealthy ways like getting a bigger butt cheeks, larger lips or a new gender.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 64,000 cosmetic surgery patients in 2014 were aged 13-19, and experts believe that this number is bound to rise. There was a time when kids went back to school shopping for clothing. Now, it is becoming a trend for kids to have Back-to-School Cosmetic Surgery. Why? Very few parents are teaching their kids to embrace who God created them to be.
As Nicki Minaj’s musical career took off in 2010, there became thousands of women who wanted to have plastic surgery so they could have a similar body as her.
When the NFL tells kids that it okay to change genders, you are indirectly telling kids that it is okay not to love themselves. Once we stop loving ourselves, our hearts will start to long to become someone else. Did you notice about five years ago that there were thousands of women having plastic surgery to try to get a butt shaped like Nicki Minaj? I wonder how many of those women grow up in a home where their parents told them that they are beautiful just the way God created them. Nowadays, if parents don’t tell their kids that they are beautiful, organizations like the NFL won’t. The NFL is perpetuating a culture that suggests that God makes mistakes when He creates people and it is okay for us to spend our lives correcting what God messed up.
Changing one’s gender use to be considered as an extreme manifestation of low esteem. Now people who have sex changes feel like they are embracing their true self, not understanding that God created them the way they were born for a reason. It is becoming politically incorrect to tell a young person that he or she is beautiful just the way God created them. Why? Many people are trying to make the transgender community feel good about rebelling against their Creator. Unfortunately, the typical transgender search for identity often leads them to live a life full of depression and pain.
When you feel good about yourself, it doesn’t matter what people think of you. When you are struggling to love yourself, you will spend your life looking for validation that might or might not come. Transgender often try to blame institutions like the Church for the negative feeling they feel inside. It is never good when you try to build your self-esteem on what people think of you. What people think of us will change from time to time. What we should be concern with is how God feels about us. Because He created each of us, He is pleased with His creation even when we don’t feel good about ourselves, and the people around us don’t accept us.
Can you imagine a time in this nation when a Christian can get locked up for telling a child that he or she is wonderfully and fearlessly made by God? Mr. Glazer, please wake up. The transgender community is not only helping to push God out of our society, but they are influencing kids not to embrace the beautiful person that God created when He created them. This is one reason why we see so many young people wasting their lives away trying to be or look like someone they were never created to be.
41 percent of transgender people will attempt suicide at some point in their lives, and people who have had sex reassignment surgery are approximately 20 times more likely than the general population to die by suicide.
Bryan Glazer, the transgender community can blame their pain on the Church for not accepting their lifestyle. I believe God will blame what the transgender community is experiencing partly on organizations like the NFL for telling kids it is okay to reject the person that He created them to become. When I look in the mirror, I’m pleased with the person God created; I hope you feel the same. Let’s help millions of young people that are often struggling with identity issues feel good about themselves.
