First Christian’s Church and a Katy ISD club seem to believe that encouraging children to embrace gender-transitioning practices and providing these minors with detrimental chest binders, without the permission of their parents, are good and ethical practices.
KATY, TX– Local LGBT church First Christian Church’s “Transparent Closet,” which provides gender-confused people with clothing designed for the opposite sex, is working with a Katy Independent School District club to provide children with physically damaging chest binders.
“Chest binding,” or using tight clothing or other items to flatten the breasts, is a common practice for females who are confused about their gender. The practice is associated with a number of dangerous and potentially life-threatening consequences.
According to one study of over 1,200 females who engaged in chest binding, nearly 89% experienced at least one of the following serious health issues: damage to skin, such as rashes or breakdown of tissue (77.7%); back pain (53.8%); overheating (53.5%), chest pain (48.8%) and shortness of breath (46.6%).
Some of the women reported numb and unresponsive skin where the skin was bound, and stomach and digestive problems. A few suffered very severe issues like deep scarring, fluid buildup in lungs and fractured ribs.
According to another study at the John Hopkins School of Health, which associated 28 negative outcomes to chest binding, “over 97% reported at least one of 28 negative outcomes attributed to binding.”
The health consequences of chest binding are common knowledge, even among LGBT people. Pro-LGBT organization Pride in Practice says on its website, “Binding improperly or for too long can lead to chest and back pain.”
“It is safest and most common to bind using a dedicated binder, an article of clothing designed specifically for this purpose.”
The second statement, however, is false. According to the aforementioned study, commercial binders are the most harmful method to chest bind, and women binding with this method displayed twenty out of twenty-eight of the negative symptoms. For context, elastic bandages use caused 14/28 symptoms, and duct tape or plastic wrap caused 13/28.
Yet First Christian’s Church and a Katy ISD club seem to believe that encouraging children to embrace gender-transitioning practices and providing these minors with detrimental chest binders, without the permission of their parents, are good and ethical practices.
“This organization is working with [Katy ISD] to help young girls who think they’re boys get chest binders,” popular social media account Libs of TikTok posted on X, formerly Twitter.
“Chest binding can cause issues including fluid buildup in the lungs and broken ribs. Why would a school encourage kids to embrace a pseudo identity and pretend to be something they’re not with a harmful chest binder?”
This post went viral last week, eliciting outrage and shock from social media users. This shock isn’t shared by Katy locals, who are all too familiar with the controversy and infamy surrounding the radical left First Christian Church (FCC).
FCC Katy became familiar to the public after it hosted several supposed “family-oriented” drag events. The “family oriented” description was an intentional misnomer, as the church was calculated in its efforts to attract malleable youth to sexually explicit and dangerous content.
“One such event, a drag bingo, exposed young children to men dressed as women in provocative outfits, prancing around the church,” Texas Scorecard wrote in a recent article.
This sickening event was hosted by a drag queen who went by the stage name Tisha Flowers and appeared to be into the occult.
“Tisha Flowers… had posted several pictures of himself with satanic imagery on his social media,” Katy Christian Magazine wrote
“[His] real name is indicated as Jaysen Kettl on his Facebook page, [and he] was arrested and sentenced at the age of 17 for conspiracy to torture and murder 20 of his classmates according to this Houston Chronicle article uncovered by Kevin Whitt, Founder of Culture Warriors of America.”
The “Transparency Closet” is only the newest radical-left ploy by FCC, which has been ‘accepting and affirming’ LGBT ideologies since 2006.
“Last year, independent journalist Tayler Hansen went undercover to the church’s ‘Transparent Closet,’ to reveal the disturbing nature of the secret cross-dressing boutique,” Texas Scorecard said.
“A look inside of First Christian [Church’s] ‘Transparency Closet’ in Katy, TX. The closet is set up in a way that is designed to keep parents uninformed. Chest binders, underwear and bras can be found. I was removed by Katy Police [Security] after the Pastor saw my phone,” Hansen posted on X.
The journalist’s posting was accompanied by a jarring video of the inside of “Transparent Closet.”
“Video footage from Hansen showed chest binders, fake genitalia and a selection of clothes and undergarments of the opposite sex for children to choose from,” Texas Scorecard said. “The boutique is completely free and uses bags from other stores to hide the cross-dressing materials from children’s parents.”
Although the church hides its true agenda from children’s parents, it openly boasts about the trans “closet” on its website.
“Transparent closet is a free clothing boutique designed for trans and exploring teens, youth and young adults to have a safe place for clothing needs and beyond. When you come to the closet, you will be welcomed into a space just for you,” FCC’s website says.
“Here, you will find all kinds of clothes, undergarments, binders, hair accessories, style accessories, make-up and more.”
Katy ISD seemingly welcomes this agenda, allowing its Cinco Ranch Gender-Sexuality Alliance club to work hand-in-hand with FCC to get binders into the hands of young girls. The following image is a screenshot of an Instagram posting by the club.
Journalist Hansen blasted FCC again on X.
“These people shouldn’t be anywhere near kids. Genuinely demented people run this organization,” he posted.
“Gays Against Groomers also responded to Libs of TikTok’s social media post, calling the school district and FCC Katy ‘evil’ for providing chest binders to minors,” Texas Scorecard reported.
“A Katy ISD spokesperson told Texas Scorecard, ‘The district is not affiliated with the First Christian Church’s Transparent Closet. Any information being shared on social media platforms that are contradictory, are false.”
