Truth always hurts – especially to those who hate the truth. And one of the main groups which hates truth, distorts truth, and runs from truth, is the militant homosexual lobby. Indeed, the entire homosexualist movement is based on a mountain of lies: I was born that way, change is not possible, my lifestyle will not impact anyone else, etc.
When truth is revealed here, the militants get enraged. When a person leaves the homosexual lifestyle for example the homosexual lobby froths at the mouth and launches a savage attack on such people. They know that an ex-homosexual gives lie to their false agenda and deceptive ideology.
So they sure won’t like the testimony of former lesbian Robin Beck. She has been there and done that, and her story sends the militant homosexual lobby ballistic. But truth matters, so I for one will proudly share her story. It opens this way:
Robin Teresa Beck, 59, is not afraid to tell anyone, even Pope Francis himself, that homosexuality turned her life into a living hell of suffering, darkness, smashed dreams, and lasting regret. And after 35 years of homosexual behavior over the course of 12 relationships, Robin knows exactly what she’s talking about. “From my experience, it is impossible to have a healthy gay relationship because it goes against the way God made us to be,” she told LifeSiteNews, calling it “cruel” for any religious leader to look favorable upon such a relationship.
She discusses the abuse she endured at home, and then says:
Robin will forever be haunted by the day she learned as a seven-year-old that her father had left home for good. She remembers storming out of the house, looking up at the sky and shouting: “Why God? Out of all the kids in the world, why did you choose this to happen to my family?” Robin was now in high school. Her dad was physically absent and her mother struggled with a debilitating illness. Looking back at this time, she now realizes she had a huge void in her heart and was desperate for someone — anyone — to love her….
She bounced from one lesbian relationship to another, often overlapping them, making sure that she would never have to spend a moment where she was alone and unloved. Looking back, Robin now realizes that she continually chose partners who, like herself, were psychologically challenged. “I kept hoping to find a stable, loving, nurturing woman to heal my heart (in other words, I was looking for the mom I never had),” she wrote.
Finally, at a Catholic church service she heard the words ‘Repent and believe in the Gospel.’ That was the beginning of her turnaround:
She just celebrated five years of what she called “walking in victory.” She believes this is a “huge miracle.” “And the miracle is that for the last five years, I have been OK with being God’s special ‘somebody.’ I’ve been OK with everyday waking up by myself and waking rejoicing that I have a right relationship with God now. It’s just his amazing grace that sustains me being alone. That’s the miracle,” she told LifeSiteNews.
To anyone who will ask, Robin will say that the last 5 years of her life have taken her completely by surprise. “You have to believe when I tell you, I never planned on any of this. I was caught off guard, taken by surprise, hoodwinked, and ambushed by Sovereign mercy. Seriously, no kidding! It’s the truth—I just came for ashes!” she concludes her book.
The truth certainly does set you free. And we have more truth, this time regarding the sexual lifestyle flavor of the month: transgenderism. Just as one of the biggest growth areas in the West today is tattoo removal, it seems that regrets about sex-change operations are exploding. As Stella Morabito explains:
Everyone has regrets. Some of us have big regrets. Most everyone has some place to go to get help dealing with them. Except for, say, a guy who had sex-change surgery and now would like to have his penis back. (The one God gave him.)….
Regarding her lip enhancement surgery, Courtney Love said: “I just want the mouth God gave me back.” But the difference between Love and the guy with phantom penis syndrome is that the guy isn’t allowed to talk about his regret. Not openly. The transgender lobby actively polices and suppresses discussion of sex-change regret, and claims it’s rare (no more than “5 percent.”)
However, if you do decide to “de-transition” to once again identify with the sex in your DNA, talking about it will get you targeted by trans activists. So it’s a challenge to understand the scope of regret for sex change surgery. It’s out there, but…
She looks at a number of prominent cases of this, and continues:
A Swedish study from 2003 found that post-operative mortality and suicide rates for transsexuals are many times higher than the general population. And that’s in Sweden, probably the friendliest environment on the planet for transgender individuals.
Also out of Sweden is a 2010 documentary entitled “Regretters” in which two older Swedish men who each lived as a woman for many years decided to go back to their male identities. (The film has made the rounds at various LGBT events, interesting given its controversial nature.) I recently watched Regretters on YouTube with English subtitles, but that option is no longer available. I hope you can still watch a subtitled trailer here. A few more subtitled excerpts are available in this three-minute discussion with the director.
In “Regretters,” one of the men, Mikael, describes how he felt immediately upon seeing the results of the surgery and his penis gone. He rues aloud: “I was devastated. What have I done? What on earth have I done?” In the full version he explains how he cried and would have likely changed his mind if the doctor simply asked him just before the surgery if he was certain about it. Mikael also explained that he was always painfully shy towards women and never felt he could find someone who would date him or marry him. So—starved for a woman and fearful of rejection—he concluded that he needed to be a woman.
The other man, Orlando, who still looks and dresses androgynously, stated he was “shocked” to see his penis gone after the surgery. Absolutely shocked. Orlando passed very nicely as a woman and managed to trick a man who wanted children into marrying him. Orlando describes his many machinations in covering up, but after a decade the truth came out and the “marriage” ended.
Finally, Sundog Pictures, a well-known UK documentary production house, seems to have been exploring the possibility of a documentary on the phenomenon of sex change regret. But chances are you won’t be hearing about it.
Consider this October 2014 blog post at TransActivist.com: “No I will not Help Sundog Make a Documentary about Trans ‘Regret’” which reacts to a letter of inquiry about the project from a Sundog representative. “NotRightRuth” scolded and lashed out against Sundog Pictures for its interest and stated that such a documentary would be “harmful” to the trans-agenda.
If Sundog Pictures is indeed interested, that’s yet another indication that sex-change regret is far deeper and broader than reported. But with or without a new documentary, murmurs of regret are liable to get louder. Biological truth has a way of outing itself. The hard reality of it is written right into our DNA as “male” or “female.” In the end, transgender activists and their media enablers won’t be able to drown that massive iceberg.
Another inconvenient truth is just how few homosexuals there actually are. And guess what, every time this truth is pointed out, the homosexual activists go ballistic:
Gay leaders are expressing alarm at the just-released numbers from the Center for Disease Control that place the percentage of Americans identifying as homosexual at only 1.6% of the adult population. That would mean the total number of gays in American is roughly 3.8 million, roughly 1.5 million less than the total number of American Methodists. Scout, who goes by one name, a spokesman for CenterLink’s Network of LGBT Health Equity, told the Washington Post, “The truth is, numbers matter, and political influence matters.”
Most Americans believe the population of gays is exponentially larger. For almost half a century, Americans believed a number produced by disgraced sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, who claimed 10% of the population was gay. In recent years, Gallup found that a majority of adults believe the percentage of gays in the population is 25%. The same poll found younger people put the figure at 30%.
Ellyn Ruthstrom, president of the Bi-Sexual Resource Center in Boston, said, “It’s just going to make it harder for us when we’re going out and talking to people about the bisexual population. We have a real hard time already with people not taking the bisexual identity seriously.”
Yep, it has always been about pushing agendas. That is why lying about numbers has always been a big part of the homosexual agenda. No wonder they are again whining when they are confronted with truth. Truth is a real bummer for those who seek to live in lies and deception.
So here we have three clear truths which the MSM will not run with, and the homosexual lobby will go apoplectic over: The homosexual lifestyle is a miserable dead end which many people have been set free from; the transgender push is harming countless individuals and is certainly no panacea: and the homosexual population has always been a tiny percentage of the overall population.
Truth hurts. Get over it.
