Through his creations of human life and the universe and throughout history God has proved his own existence. God has also revealed to man his only son.

God sent his only son to do his will. Jesus did so and came forth with more sons of God.

These socially determined roles for men and women are culturally or socially created and are perceived as being expected and normal. From these gender roles, certain characteristics that are a reflection of what it means to be male or to be masculine are expected of men, while other characteristics are ascribed to women and their femininity. ―For example, men are supposed to be natural leaders, decision makers and providers in society, beginning within the family, while women are the caregivers, supporters and followers of men(Pretorius, 1998).

For example, Matthew who felt uncomfortable as a woman, felt more comfortable when he was pregnant. I think Rosskam chose Matthew because he was the one who described his pregnancy in a very positive light. The cisgender audience would not expect a male or someone who identifies as a male to enjoy such a female experience and so I think Matthew represented this unique viewpoint that even men can enjoy this experience and that it is not only limited to women. I think this gives hope to the transgender audience because they now have an example to relate to. Matthew also mentioned how he thought his family would not support him through this process and that his children might be taken from him but it was completely the opposite for him (Rosskam).
