Mermaids is an organization based in the U.K. that offers guidance to young people (under 20) who believe they are transgender by promoting it AND encourages kids to hide it from their parents. Check out their website for yourself. YIKES!
This service is dangerous!
It actively promotes transgender lifestyles and transitioning as if there are no negative consequences. The TRUTH is that people who undergo transgender surgeries end up destroying their bodies permanently, increase their risk of mental health issues and suicide, and pay exorbitant healthcare costs. Our Duty on social media raised the red flag this week to help alert parents of what havoc this app was doing to kids throughout the country.
The Mermaids staff will speak to children willingly and do not inform the parents. In fact, the graphic above shows a handy pink arrow in the lower right of the screen to quickly close the webpage, thereby promoting secrecy from parents with a quick esape plan.
Here's a closer look:
- Don't let the Internet parent your kids! Always be talking with your kids so they know to come to you first, rather than random deceptive "support services" on the internet.
- Counter lies with Truth. First stop? The Bible.
- Need more truth? Online resources from Focus on the Family can help you find the scriptural ammo you need to find Truth in God's Word quickly.
- Our friends at Axis have a complete video series created to speak to young people about gender the way God created us and how to counter the lies pop culture promotes. You can even see a preview of the video and the accompanying conversation series HERE.
- Arm your youth with Truth by talking openly about issues like this, answering their questions with biblical wisdom, and getting them to a Christian counselor if necessary.
