Billy Burleigh struggled with his sexual identity since the age of five. His first memory of this struggle was standing in front of the school he was attending, looking at all the other kids, wondering where he belonged, and having this thought, “God made a mistake, I’m a girl.” Billy did not share this thought with anyone but continued on to graduate from high school. He graduated college with a Bachelors and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, and he swam competitively for the college he attended. On the outside, it appeared that Billy had it all pulled together.

But the struggle in Billy’s mind about his sexual identity did not go away. Billy fought his thoughts for years before agreeing with his thoughts. He transitioned to appearing as a woman, changed his legal documents, and presented as a woman for about seven years. But the problems he was trying to resolve only became worse. At this point Billy called out to God; he gave both his life and all of his problems to God. Now, Billy is married to a beautiful lady, has two daughters, a son-in-law, and is living for God.

Jane Robbins is an attorney and retired senior fellow with the American Principles Project in Washington D.C. At APP she worked on issues related to education, parental rights, and religious freedom; she testified about these issues before Congress and the legislatures of 12 states. Since retiring from APP she has focused on issues related to the sexualization of children in schools, healthcare, and the culture at large. Her articles on these topics have been published in numerous national media outlets. She also serves on the board of a new organization called American Achievement Testing, which is developing a traditional U.S. history curriculum to be offered to high schools as an alternative to current Leftist models. She is a graduate of Clemson University and the Harvard Law School.

"The administrative state book was written several years ago with two of my APP colleagues. It's an attempt to delve deeper into how the bureaucracy of the federal government really dictates so much state and local policy. It does have a couple of chapters about education -- how we got to the pathetic state we're in -- and the chapter about rigged federal research is especially applicable to the trans issue."

Erin Brewer developed a trans identity in first grade. She did everything she could to be a boy. Her teacher sent her to the school psychologist for assessment because her behavior was concerning. Thankfully the school psychologist did not affirm her, instead she came up with a plan for her mother and teacher to help Erin manage her difficult feelings. It took years for Erin’s trans identity to resolve but she is thankful that she got the help she needed to address the underlying cause of her trans identity rather than being told she was born in the wrong body and inherently flawed.

Erin grew up in Salt Lake City and earned a B.S. from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. She has a Doctorate in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University.

Erin shares her deeply personal story to help others understand the damage that is being done to our children by the transgender movement.

Maria Polaris (not her real name) and her husband’s lives were turned upside down when their daughter ran away from home after her first year of college in 2015. Someone they didn’t know picked up their daughter and helped her attempt to change sex.

"Since then," Maria says, "our family has had to find ways to cope, because once a child is 18, they can do whatever they want in the U.S. including, full medical transition without psychological assessments. This has led to regret and grave errors in the medical community. Ohio has six major gender clinics with the largest one boasting over 1600 patients (funded by a family in the process of transitioning their own child since age 3)."

Maria is now part of a support group for parents of Rapid-Onset Gender Dysphoria. They are also active advocates for more humane, evidence-based public policy in the area of gender identity.

No one is "born in the wrong body."

Tracy Shannon is mother of 4 blessings and a grandmother. She has studied what she calls the “neo-morality movement” for 20 years. Tracy’s family was profoundly impacted by the transgender movement many years ago, and that moved Tracy from the sidelines (merely protecting her own children from being inducted into "new" sexual mores) and onto the battlefront in the culture wars.

Recently, Tracy has taken on Drag Queen Story Hours in Texas and across the country. She exposed how libraries determined to introduce children to adult entertainers and transsexuals disregarded their own policies allowing sex offenders to be held out as role models to young children in taxpayer-funded public libraries.

This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here.

Tracy is the Texas Director for MassResistance Texas, and led parents there in pushing back against the debauched drag queen program for children as young as four. She has also contributed to research of the programs across the nation and helped parents in several states push back against this programming.

Dr. Erin Brewer developed a trans identity after being molested in first grade. She did everything she could to be a boy. In her mind, she *was* a boy. But instead of enabling this delusion, Erin's mother eventually sent her to a therapist, and she received proper care to manage her gender confused feelings. She eventually accepted her gender, but continued running away from God.

She became a star on the most popular pornography site in the world, making the top 20 most popular amateur performers, with over 10.8 million views and more than 400 videos. She was saved from pornography when she accepted Jesus as her Savior. She deleted all of her videos and is now speaking out about the dangers of gender ideology and porn. She openly shares her deeply personal story to help others understand the damage that is being done to our children by the transgender movement. Erin earned her bachelors degree from Hampshire College, and her Doctorate in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University.

This week's podcast is a "primer" in Gender Ideology by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse. She spoke to a Catholic group of teens and their parents in Arizona last week, and after her talk, she took questions from the group. We thought it made a perfect introduction to the subject, including offering answers to those struggling with pressures from friends and the media on transgender issues.

We hope to produce many other "primers" on topics of critical import to the family, marriage, and children's rights. We kind of think of it as "Basic Training" in "resisting" the politically-correct world. As we say in the introduction:

Faith, love, and hope are being destroyed in the hearts of vulnerable people. Life and death are literally in the balance. This is your "basic training" in a war for societal sanity.

RUTH INSTITUTE RESISTANCE: In these basic training episodes, Dr. Morse will dispel politically-correct confusion, expose lies, and reveal freedom-giving truth.

The Ruth Institute is building a coalition to defend marriage and the family, stand up for children's rights, support victims of the Sexual Revolution, and facilitate a civilization of love. JOIN THE RUTH INSTITUTE RESISTANCE.
