WEB Notes: This nation has become a cesspool of filth and perversion. Truth is manipulated by the faithless turning it into a lie and the lies are touted as the truth. Our children are corrupted and told sin is okay to accept and embrace. We certainly cannot say we were not warned… (Isaiah 5:20, 2 Timothy 3:1-7).

As part of its January 2017 issue exploring our evolving understandings and definitions of gender, National Geographic is featuring nine-year-old transgender rights activist Avery Jackson on its cover—the first time a trans person has made the cover of the magazine.
Jackson rose to stardom last year when she began documenting her transition with “Avery Chats,” a series of YouTube videos describing how she came to understand her identity at such a young age and eventually came out to her parents as trans.
“When I was born, doctors said I was a boy, but I knew in my heart I was a girl,” Jackson explained in her first video. “So I may have some boy body parts, but that’s not wrong, that is OK.”
