So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Genesis 1:27 — King James Version

He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind” when they were created.

Genesis 5:2 — New International Version

 

Biblically, medically, biologically, chemically, physically, emotionally, mentally, GENETICALLY, thus the word “gender” — created as two and only two distinct sexes, genders, male and female.

No matter how much Satan whispers and lies in the ears and minds of those walking in darkness and they believe the lies and perpetuate their relativistic; “whatever I believe as being true is true and I will ignore and disbelieve all facts, truths, history, and evidence to the contrary of my relativistic thinking.”

Ignoring biological fact “detrimental to society”, appeal hearing told

Defending the reality of biological sex is based on “fundamental scientific facts” a senior lawyer told an Employment Appeal Tribunal this week.

Former tax consultant Maya Forstater lost her job in 2019 because of her views, and an Employment Tribunal ruled that her dismissal was not discriminatory because ‘gender critical’ beliefs are not protected by equality law.

But in her appeal, which concluded yesterday, Ben Cooper QC said that ignoring biological fact “is detrimental to an honest, just and fair society, particularly upholding the rights of women”.

‘Orwellian’

Mr. Cooper stated that biological sex is “real, important, immutable, and not to be conflated with gender identity”, and changing one’s appearance “does not change a person’s sex”.

He spoke of his concern that children and young people are “being led to believe it is possible to change sex or simply to be a member of the opposite sex”.

Forstater’s legal team called the original tribunal’s approach to her case “Orwellian”, saying it was “reminiscent of the Ministry of Truth’s newspeak: words themselves are to have their ‘undesirable meanings purged out of them’ along with the associated ideas.”

She hopes the court will recognise her views as a philosophical belief under the Equality Act 2010.

Abuse

Last week, Forstater spoke publicly for the first time on the case’s impact on her life and family.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, the wife and mum revealed how tweeting that biology determines whether people are male or female led to the loss of her job, exposed her to abuse, and caused great distress to her husband and two sons.

“To see your mum or your wife be cancelled and to see videos on YouTube which have had millions of hits portraying me as an awful, terrible person because of my views has been really hard on them.”
