One of the things I find fascinating about this whole thing about allowing boys that identify as girls into girls’ locker rooms, and vice versa is this: The experts tell the students that it is natural to do this. There is no reason to be uncomfortable. It is only your upbringing that has made you uncomfortable.
As a parent of both a boy and a girl, I can tell you that both reached a point, on their own, without coaching from me, that they were no longer comfortable being unclothed in front of anyone, even someone of the same gender. So it is not normal or natural, as the experts say, to be ok with being undressed in front of someone of the opposite physical gender, let alone someone of your own gender.
The Bible shows pretty clearly that when humans were first created it was perfectly normal for people to hang out together unclothed. But as soon as we decided to stop following God’s rules for us, we immediately became embarrassed about being naked. Fascinatingly enough, Adam and Eve were embarrassed even though it was only the two of them, and they were married. In most societies, that is the only situation in which people should feel comfortable being unclothed around each other, and yet, they weren’t.
Because none of us are perfect any longer, it is not natural to be unclothed in front of someone else in a locker room. We learn to tolerate it when all are the same gender, though it is still uncomfortable. It is not in the least natural to be changing in front of the opposite physical gender.
You know its true when even God helps out:
“The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.”
Genesis 3: 21
Here’s to a safe environment for all!
