If you have been reading this blog you will have read about the person who “felt” they didn’t fit either male or female. Its story made it into the Australian news. Here it is in part.
“FOR 50 years Jamie Schupe lived as a male. But that didn’t feel quite right.
For the three years after that, Schupe electively lived as a female. But being a woman wasn’t something Schupe could live with either.
Now, Schupe does not identify with any gender and has become the first person in the United States to be legally recognised as a non-binary person. Schupe wants to be referred to using the pronoun ‘they’.
The state of Oregon says it will now recognise the non-binary option, as well as the male and female genders.
‘After a historic court ruling, I am free. I am the first non-binary person in the United States to be officially recognised. I refused to be classified. And now, I’ve been vindicated,’ Schupe wrote in an article for The Guardian.
Schupe was born a male and was married with children, but told National Public Radio they were in a ‘deep, dark depression because I had boxed myself into this male identity that I couldn’t stand anymore.’
Schupe, who has male genitalia, says not having to identify with any gender has made life much easier.
‘I believe myself to be a unique variation of nature,’ Schupe wrote in The Guardian.”
Schupe said “The traditional constraints imposed by an unjust sex classification system of just male or female, that still governs those who lack my freedoms, has been lifted for me”. http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/news-life/nonbinary-gender-is-now-legally-recognised-in-a-us-state/news-story/0fbb8b5d832a32c4c5a90424ff03daa1
Too be honest Schupe isn’t an attractive male, female or “non-binary”. Nevertheless, the scary and sad outcome here is that all of us will be expected to accept this non-sense. Yes, I am going to bash you with the Bible. It says in Mark 10:6 “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” But, hey, what difference does it make what God the Creator says anyway for He also declared judges who sanction this kind of non-sense are simply “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools”.
