Sony Pictures Entertainment’s latest trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse promoted gender affirmation and child mutilation with a “Protect Trans Kids” flag prominently displayed.

At the 2:03 mark of the trailer, Gwen Stacy’s Spider-Gwen appears to be sitting in her room contemplating losing her friend, Miles Morales. 

In her room above her door is a “Transgender Flag” that reads “Protect Trans Kids.”

This flag is a symbol of “gender affirmation” and surgical procedures done to affirm an individual’s misguided belief that they are the opposite sex from what they were born. 

Bishop Michael Burbidge instructs the faith in his A Catechesis on the Human Person and Gender Ideology, “In this sensitive area of identity, however, there is a great danger of a misguided charity and false compassion. In this regard, we must recall, ‘Only what is true can ultimately be pastoral.’

He adds, “Christians must always speak and act with both charity and truth. After the example of the Apostle Paul, they are to seek to speak the truth in love (cf. Eph 4:15).”

Bishop Burbidge goes on to note, “The claim to ‘be transgender’ or the desire to seek “transition” rests on a mistaken view of the human person, rejects the body as a gift from God, and leads to grave harm.”

“To affirm someone in an identity at odds with biological sex or to affirm a person’s desired ‘transition’ is to mislead that person. It involves speaking and interacting with that person in an untruthful manner,” he states.

“Although the law of gradualness might prompt us to discern the best time to communicate the fullness of the truth, in no circumstances can we confirm a person in error,” he instructs.

From there Bishop Burbidge writes, “Indeed, there is ample evidence that ‘gender affirmation’ not only does not resolve a person’s struggles but also can in fact exacerbate them. The acceptance and/or approval of a person’s claimed transgender identity is particularly dangerous in the case of children, whose psychological development is both delicate and incomplete.”

“First and foremost, a child needs to know the truth: He or she has been created male or female, forever. Affirming a child’s distorted self-perception or supporting a child’s desire to ‘be’ someone other than the person (male or female) God created, gravely misleads and confuses the child about ‘who’ he or she is,” Bishop Burbidge guides the faithful.

“In addition, ‘gender-affirming’ medical or surgical interventions cause significant, even irreparable, bodily harm to children and adolescents. These include the use of puberty blockers (in effect, chemical castration) to arrest the natural psychological and physical development of a healthy child, cross-sex hormones to induce the development of opposite-sex, secondary sex characteristics, and surgery to remove an adolescent’s healthy breasts, organs, and/or genitals. These kinds of interventions involve serious mutilations of the human body, and are morally unacceptable,” Bishop Burbidge points out.

His Most Reverend also writes, “Adolescents are particularly vulnerable to claims that ‘gender transition’ will resolve their difficulties. Long-term studies show ‘higher rates of mortality, suicidal behavior and psychiatric morbidity in gender-transitioned individuals compared to the general population.'”

He continues, “In addition, studies show that children and adolescents diagnosed with gender dysphoria have high rates of comorbid mental health disorders, such as depression or anxiety, are three to four times more likely to be on the autism spectrum, and are more likely to have suffered from adverse childhood events, including unresolved loss or trauma or abuse

“Psychotherapeutic treatments that incorporate ‘ongoing therapeutic work … to address unresolved trauma and loss, the maintenance of subjective well-being, and the development of the self,’ along with established treatments addressing suicidal ideation are appropriate interventions. Gender transition is not the solution,” he asserts.

Bishop Burbidge also posits, “Indeed, to disregard or withhold information about the harms of pursuing “transition” or about the benefits of alternative, psychotherapeutic treatments constitutes a failure in both justice and charity.”

Not only does the trailer include a “Protect Trans Kids” flag prominently displayed in Gwen Stacy’s room, but Miles Morales sports a Black Lives Matter sticker on his backpack at the :39 second mark.

Black Lives Matter is an anti-police organization that advocates “to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folks, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”

The organization also wants to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
