So can we still say Happy Mother’s Day?

I am writing this post on Mother’s Day, May 9, 2021. This is the one special day out of the year where we specifically celebrate mothers and thank them for birthing us into this world and for caring for us. I think we can all say, thank God for mothers! Without them, there’d be no us.

Attack on motherhood?

But right now, there is a full-frontal attack on the meaning of motherhood. It seems to be the most insane thing ever. There are people even in the medical community who are actually referring to mothers as pregnant people. No more are people who have uteruses and vaginas considered to be women. Nope. They are whatever they feel they are on any given day. Maybe today, they feel like a woman. But no guarantees for tomorrow. And who knows about a week from now. Wherever our heart leads, we are encouraged to follow. Even when it flies in the face of reality.

Are gender and sex interchangeable?

We are being coerced to accept that men can be women and women can be men. That gender and sex are no longer synonymous; rather, our sex is assigned to us at birth, but our gender is a construct we have autonomy over. Essentially, we get to play God. And therefore, there are men who can have babies and we must accept that. Because, if we don’t, we are clearly bigots, and obviously not progressive. As Demi Lovato has declared, boys can have vaginas, and girls can have penises. I mean, how narrow-minded of us who actually believe that only girls have vaginas and only boys have penises! Where’s the freedom in that? Sounds really restrictive and old-fashioned. My word.

It is amazing the level of absurdity we have accepted in our culture today. We are selling out the beauty and uniqueness of motherhood in the name of being progressive. When parents first find out they are pregnant, one of the first things they want to know is, “Is it a girl or a boy?” Not a difficult question to answer, generally. Mostly because it is so incredibly apparent. But now many of our cultural elites want to erase what it means to be a boy or a girl and allow the genders to be interchangeable. And if you don’t follow along, you are wrong and not compassionate.

Using biology as proof there are more than 2 genders

I’ve even heard the “clever” push back of pulling science into the argument. What if a child has XXY chromosomes? Or XYY? Or several other permutations? Well, those are gender abnormalities that are rare, and our world has always had them. That doesn’t take away from the fact that there are 2 genders, not 3, not 6, and certainly not 52+, as is now preached to teens.

The assault on women has nothing to do with those that have a gender abnormality. Using those who have that condition is insulting and wrong. The problem is that many in the media and Hollywood are arguing that someone who is male at birth can just choose to be a woman, and vice versa. And they use those with gender abnormalities to support the argument that there are multiple genders, not just 2. Somehow that’s supposed to make sense and we just need to accept that.

Can we really choose our gender?

This attack on women is not about those with chromosomal abnormalities. Obviously, it happens. But for the vast majority of the population, gender is binary and assigned at birth. We can’t change that. Our feeble attempts to change what God has ordained are not deceiving anyone, except perhaps ourselves. Our genitalia is only a small part of what makes us men and women. It is in our very DNA, skeletal structure, and hormones. It is a part of who we are because we are created by a Creator Who designed us to be whatever He ordained (Genesis 1:27). Period.

If we continue down this road of madness, there will be no Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Person day, maybe? Birther Day? As Allie B. Stuckey has said so accurately, though, truth is sort of like a beach ball that we can try to shove under the water. But the fact is that the ball just keeps coming right back up. We can pretend that men can give birth. But God has designed us in such a way that at one point or another, the truth will pop up in one way or another. It’s inevitable.


Pray for eyes to open, for true repentance to happen, and for our culture to stop this rapid descent into increasing incoherence, confusion, and to be frank, insanity. I am so thankful to be a mother. Women are fearfully and wonderfully made, as are men. And we are not the same. We were designed for different functions, all for the glory of God. The sooner we embrace that reality, the better for all of us.

Happy belated Mother’s Day!
