I believe the question should be posed to not just the West, but the North, the South, and the East as well – all directions.
Stav Atlan, states in the article,
“Alienation and being different are keywords. I think my transgender identity didn’t manifest outwardly until I came out of the closet. I was feminine, but not as a cliché of a girl turning trans. My father was quite shocked when I told him. Even when I wanted to wear my mother’s dresses, I felt it was forbidden. I knew how to ‘pass’ as a boy, but there was always something fake about my masculinity.” Haaretz link
YHWH mitzvot D’varim 22:5,
“A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the Lord your G-d.”
To those who are Jewish we understand that this is a choice between obeying YHWH mitzvot or following our own carnality or ideology.
Tzelem Elokim allows humanity to discern right and wrong or evil. That we may not commit the acts of sin or sway others to follow what is considered Avodah Zarah. link
Of course as a person you have the right to choose what you wish to do with your life, how to live your life, and your decisions are your own and the consequences thereof.
To answer why a transgender lifestyle is a “threat” to society comes down to Tinok SheNishba, or children who have grown up educated in a lifestyle outside the knowledge of Torah.
So the way of life of TS can be forgiven and redeemed as this is not entirely an act of say, murder, a known conscience action defined by Tzelem Elokim.
Further to elaborate upon Atlan’s question we head over to Psychology Today,
“The researchers predicted that for individuals high in gender binarism, trans individuals would be perceived as particularly psychologically threatening because they stand in the face of something these participants strongly believe to be an essential, immutable, human trait: gender and, by extension, the connection between sex and gender.” link
Psychology Today concludes in their same article at the link above,
“Finally, it is important to emphasize that a transgender individual’s gender expression is not responsible for eliciting the prejudice of others. Rather, transprejudice stems from an internal process in which the person holding the prejudice experiences a threat to an aspect of their own identity, and thus lashes out against trans individuals as a means of trying to reaffirm the boundaries surrounding important aspects how they define their identity—in this case, their gender.”
That of course is exactly the same as saying if someone steals your car, and you’re angry about it – you’re the one with the personal problem. If your car is stolen or if someones harms a family member or manipulates their thinking – get over it, it’s your problem, not the person who is partaking in the action for their self-gratification. It’s merely transprejudice on your part and Tinok SheNishba are allowed to do whatever they wish…
Fortunately, YHWH did not consult the PhD’s at Psychology Today when He designed universal law and order and what we have as a ingrained conscience.
The justification of allowing society to commit to Sodom and Gomorrah is through “feeling unsafe” as noted by the Jewish Telegraph Agency,
“The majority of the gay community in Israel is feeling very unsafe,” said Hila Peer, the chairwoman of Aguda-The Association for LGBTQ Equality in Israel. “You have at least an intention to legislate laws that are dire for the gay community.” link
To further undestand how society succumb to Avodah Zarah we can evaluate transgenderism through:
4. Understanding the Issur:
What are some potential rationales behind issur?
- The rationale of Social Disruption
- The rationale of Category Confusion
- A negative commandment of Pru Irvu
- The rationale of Humiliation and Violence
As a community we understand that if a nation adheres to “debasing sin” such as the Sabbatean Jacob Frank “Frankism” that this ideology is to tear down society to render a destruction to that society through YHWH by universal natural law.
It is believed, such as Churban Bayit Rishon, that this destruction will occur naturally out of disobedience to what YHWH has designed as “natural conscience law” and further iterates the tendency for a “spread of asymptomatic” contagion upon social behavior that will accelerate demise left unchecked.
Which simply means that if the ideology of a furtherance of Tinok SheNishba is allowed to influence and develop into a social sphere of cultural social acceptance, regarding law, and institutional establishment, then that society will be judged and fall according to mitzvot, which history so loudly portray.
Transgenderism is a tool of Avodah Zarah which will finalize both an entities cultural destruction and further erode religious correspondence to mitzvot or Holy obligations concerning societal righteousness and adherence.
Those running government are fully aware of this and many believe that the faster they can bring about this destruction, the better. However, they themselves ar the authors of the destruction for a warped textual ideology to break everything down, to purchase at cheap rates, in order to control all resource for a future capability that a Tzadik leader will “responsibly” utilize the benefits of their insane and anti-Torah behavior for the greater good.
Evil is always justified for the “greater good” when no, it’s just a ploy for those who are greedy con-men, seeking riches, and power off the backs of humanity and they will not escape Elohim justice in this life or the life to come.
