...”To state the obvious, he fathered three children and is a man, even if he is unhappy. Many Americans cannot accept reality, or we would not be in the current mess.
NYT commenter Jackie has a sad story of how her ex-husband ruined their family.”...
I have wondered many times in my life why God made the sexual desire so insane that it destroys so much in the lives of human beings. It seems that only drug addiction can trump sex in terms of putting self interest above all else. Who in their right mind would throw away what this man has for an unknown future? Few people in this life get everything they want.
“Who in their right mind would throw away what this man has for an unknown future?”
As a society, we have nurtured such a “me” mentality. It’s for me, me, me. Essentially, if it makes “me” happy then to heck with everyone else. Gone is teaching and endorsing responsibility. This man stood up in front of God and family and married. He willingly sired two/three children. His responsibility is to be a husband and Father. But... he now wants to be a woman to make himself happy. The wife and kids will just have to deal with this loss to them and focus on how Dad in a dress is now “happy”. Happiness trumps responsibility a lot these days and unfortunately... his kids will be paying the price. IMHO.

God did not make that desire “insane”; He made it strong so that we humans would be motivated against all odds to carry on our race.
It is humans who make it “insane” by allowing their desire to turn to lust. That is the part that destroys.
