Paula Zahn NOW offers a chance to hear from people who matter, talking about the most pressing, most relevant and most essential topics of the day. – CNN

Tonight at 8:00 pm Eastern Time the people who matter will include Alan Chambers, President of Exodus International and Dr. Warren Throckmorton. Also interviewed were a board member of the Transyouth Family Advocates and her 7 year old affirmed female daughter. The subject matter will be

Boys who want to be girls, women who want to be men and gays who want to be straight. Uncovering changing attitudes and changing lifestyles.

Those who can, please tune in and report back. I, for one, am curious about the connection CNN is making between transexuality and religion-based reorientation efforts.

Our son is 23 and on 3-30-09 had gender surgery along with 11 other surgeries that same day.And not to mention this was done in Mexico.To him,this is probably the last step to his fulfilled happiness and completeness.My husband and I are believers and my convictions of Gods creation on male and female are stronger than ever.I have seen Jon since the surgery and prior to.We do not preach to him but there is a lot of pain and pretending on our part. Though this is not what we believe to be the way he should live his life, these are his decisions.There is no rejection we show or reveal to him. I believe he feels exceptec and I am the one who he keeps in contact with and I keep in contact as well. He asks no questions,either,so we offer no thoughts.We refer to Jon as Michelle,she and her.I have bought him female clothing and jewelry.What does one parent do besides reject?We have met his partner,and friends and treat them with kindness and respect.My question is, where are the other parents like us?I am finding transgender parents or parents who believe thier child is transexual as early as 5 or 6.I would like to hear parents in our postion and their stories but have had no succsess.I want to know about their (adult) child and how they- the child , have continued this lifesyle.It’s my understanding the future is not a pretty one and am highly concerned for Jon.A present can be dressed up any way on the outside but,the inside is still the same even altered with hormones.The nucleus is still the same.God makes no mistakes or there is no God,and then we are all in trouble.Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.Thank you for allowing me to send my sos and cry for help.Sincerely,Karin

Karin, while things may not work out for some transexuals for many of us it does. I am with the most wonderful man I could imagine whom I’ve known since high school and I’ve never been happier. It can work out this way for your daughter too. If you’d like you can email me at priya dot lynn at sasktel dot net

Replace the “dot” with . and the at with @

They can give you some information on the parents of transgendered children.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing
