Ruth Institute President Decries “Gender-Fluid” Dating Show

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. accused MTV of “selling gender confusion” with the first “sexually fluid” episode of its dating show “Are You the One?” which airs tonight at 9 pm Eastern.

The episode takes 16 singles to Hawaii where they look for their perfect match and compete for a chance to split a $1 million prize. The contestants have either “changed genders” or said they’re open to dating anyone, regardless of their declared identity.

“MTV isn’t promoting tolerance,” Morse declared. “They’re selling the ideological agenda of the Sexual Revolution. An individual can no more change their sex than they can change their species. Your sex is biologically given at birth. The gender-confused should seek counseling to live with that reality.”

Morse notes that Jamie Shupe, who an Oregon Court declared America’s first “nonbinary person” three years ago, is now living as a man again. An army veteran, Shupe says that his attempt to change genders “was all a sham.”

Shupe adds: “I’m one of the lucky ones. Despite participating in medical transgenderism for six years, my body is still intact. Most people who desist from transgender identities after gender changes can’t say the same.”

According to Forbes magazine, since 2011 MTV has lost 50% of its audience in the lucrative 18-49 demographic. Morse called tonight’s effort to spread gender-confusion “a pathetic attempt to make itself relevant. The cable network should be helping those with gender dysphoria, not trying to make their condition attractive.”

Dr. Morse’s latest book is “The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies Are Destroying Lives,” covers transgenderism and other aspects of the Gender Ideology.

The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love. On April 26-27, the Institute held a Summit for Survivors of Sexual Revolution in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The Summit included discussions about Gender Ideology.
