Shake on It -Engaging with Transgender People

Several people contacted me about the BBC programme ‘Shake on It” – Shake On It – A Surprising BBC Programme on Trans and Identity.   The trouble is that if you are not in the UK you can’t view it.  I understand that at some point it will be on YouTube but until then you can get it by clicking the link below.

Again to give credit to the production company they edited this fairly – and the five minute programme does reflect the 90 minutes discussion!   When I wrote a few months ago about recording this ‘Shake On It’ – An Interesting Day Recording for the BBCI expressed my concern that it would be highly edited – something shared by one of the comments:

As I am sure you realise this was an attempted “set up”. “Hate-filled trans phobic Christian bigot versus vulnerable teenage trans man”. I have no doubt that you handled it with empathy, wisdom and love. But if I was a betting man (I am not) I bet that you will be almost totally edited out of the final program other than some random comment which will be portrayed in a negative way.

Please may I be proved wrong. And I will go on praying (and campaigning) for the vulnerable Victors who are being dreadfully harmed by this vile Queer theory.

Well – that prayer was answered!

Here is the original video from Victor:

One of the fascinating things about this is that Victor in this video states that she is non-binary.  But at the interview he announced that he had changed from non-binary to male.  This is what gender fluidity means.

This week Jayne Ozanne  announced that she had been appointed to the UK government’s new panel on LGBT rights.  Jayne is a former evangelical who now allies with the anti-Christian Stonewall and other groups in order to undermine the teaching of Christ.   It is hard enough to combat the harm that Queer Theory ideology is wrecking upon our young people, without professing Christians seriously undermining and attacking the biblical theology and anthropology.    Rather than a few professing Christians serving on government boards telling the government what they want to hear we need thousands of Christians engaging personally with the Victors of this world, seeking to share the love of Christ.

The following also came about because of my engagement with transgender

  1. You have expressed before some frustration at being labelled “homophobic” etc.

    With that in mind, its deeply discouraging to me to read you describing Stonewall as an anti Christian organisation, not least because its current CEO is a practicing Christian! It’s not an anti Christian anything. It is a charity which campaigns for equal treatment of LGBTI people. I really hope that you don’t see LGBTI rights and religious freedom as a zero sum game, but even if that is the case, I hope you can accept that not all Christians oppose the work of Stonewall.

    1. It is possible to be a Christian and belong to an anti-Christian organisation. The way you phrase your accusation is in terms of rights – as though if we do not agree with SSM we are against human rights for LGBT. I accept that not all Christians oppose Stonewall but they should be aware that Stonewall does oppose Christ – they oppose his teaching and are doing their best to undermine it and to discriminate against Christians.

      1. Stonewall is a charity which works to improve the treatment of LGBTI people, including campaigning for equal treatment under the law. It’s simply untrue to say that they oppose Christ or his teaching. They may well disagree with you on certain issues, but they are motivated by being in favour of LGBTI rights, not opposing Christianity. I think if you genuinely desire open dialogue with LGBTI people, it would help not to construct barriers.

        Article 16 of the declaration of human rights says that marriage is indeed a human right.

        I doubt you would be very happy with your church being described as an anti LGBTI pressure group!

      2. Stonewall is anti-Christian in that it goes against the teaching of Christ and seeks to discriminate against those who follow Christ. They regard biblical Christianity as being opposed to their philosophy and beliefs – and they seek to impose these beliefs on everyone. Article 16 of the UNHCR does indeed say that marriage is a human right – but it also states that marriage is between men and women and that there should be no discrimination on the basis of race, nationality or religion. (not gender). Furthermore Article 26 states “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.” Something Stonewall opposes.

  2. Really does not matter If you Male Or Female, Some people are born in the wrong body and I guess that is why they call themselves Non-Binary. Calling this is suppressing their own body and wanted to be something else. Gender is and always will be in what you genitals you are born with!
