Someone stop the insanity

Being gay is not just someone being sick, we keep being told. People are born like that, they say. Women trapped in men's bodies and vice versa. Seems like there's more transgender teens today than any other time in history. So I wonder: how come?

The answer lies in a small comment I read, discussing a transgender male teen that became female through various treatments and surgery. A woman writes:

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a boy. I dressed like a boy, I had my haircut like a boy.

I used to cry because I thought I should be a boy.

My mother took me to the doctor because of it.

He told her to wait until after puberty, then if I still wanted to be a boy, THEN she would have something to worry about.

Thank God, she didn't encourage me, or decide I was a boy and cause a great outcry to "make" me a boy, because the doctor was right, once I hit my teens, I quickly changed back to a girl.

I am married with 2 kids and very thankful my parents ignored me being just a tomboy and not taking the thoughts of a little kid seriously and make everyone accept me as a boy.

Being gay is not normal and shouldn't be accepted as such. Maybe some are born gay, but there's a lot of children born with various problems, unfortunately.
