Let's Go Back to the Bible

Hebrew midwives were wiser than many today

3,500 years ago, the king of Egypt grew increasingly concerned about the size and might of the Israelite nation. The king instructed the Hebrew midwives to take matters into their hands: “When you do the duties of a midwife for the Hebrew women, and see them on the birthstools, if it is a son, then you shall kill him; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live” (Ex. 1:16).

How primitive! How could those inexperienced midwives know if the child born was a son (i.e., a male/boy) or a daughter (i.e., a female/girl)? Did they ask the child what they were? Did they wait so that they could administer hormone blockers or perform gender-altering surgery?

No! What those midwives knew 3,500 years ago has been known since the beginning of time and even to the present! Boys have boy parts, and girls have girl parts. No personal feelings, drugs or surgeries can change a boy into a girl or a girl into a boy. God made two genders (male and female, Gen. 1:27). There are only two, and they are unchangeably set upon conception and distinguishably identifiable at birth! It really is that simple!
