Gender Fluid Summer Camp

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 9, 2017

         KIDS WHO ARE IN SUMMER CAMP THIS TIME OF YEAR USUALLY SWIM, OR HIKE, OR ENGAGE IN OTHER FAMILIAR ACTIVITIES.

         NOT IN A SUMMER CAMP NEAR SAN FRANCISCO. IT’S DIFFERENT. THIS ONE IS BILLED AS A CAMP FOR TRANSGENDER CHILDREN. AT CHECK-IN EACH DAY, CAMPERS MAKE A NAMETAG WITH THEIR PRONOUN OF CHOICE. IT CAN BE “HE,” OR “SHE,” OR “SHE/HE,” OR “THEY,” OR NO PRONOUN AT ALL. THEY CAN CHANGE THEIR NAME OR PRONOUN EACH DAY UNTIL THEY SETTLE ON ONE THAT FEELS RIGHT TO THEM.

         THE CAMP IN THE BAY AREA ALSO CATERS TO “GENDER FLUID” CHILDREN. THAT’S A NEW ONE TO ME. THE KIDS ARE AGES 4 TO 12. THERE ARE ABOUT 60 IN THE CAMP, TRIPLE THE NUMBER THREE SUMMERS AGO. THEY COME FROM LOS ANGELES, WASHINGTON, D.C., EVEN AFRICA. AFRICA?

         THIS IS ALL PARENT-DRIVEN, OF COURSE. WHAT FOUR YEAR-OLD IS CONFUSED ABOUT HIS OR HER GENDER, UNLESS THEY HAVE BEEN MADE THAT WAY – CONFUSED, THAT IS – BY THEIR PARENTS?

         IT’S ALL PART OF A NATION THAT CONTINUES TO RUN FROM GOD. PROVERBS 29:18 SAYS: “WHEN PEOPE DO NOT ACCEPT DIVINE GUIDANCE, THEY RUN WILD.” I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
