I can't believe you used the word "blasphemous", otherwise known as "don't say anything inconvenient about my religion or I'll kill you".
You say "it's not how God created people to be" Really? How do you know what God intended?
You do realize there are hermaphrodites, people with vaginas and penises, and they are born this way. So which gender is a hermaphrodite?
The Bible is also pretty clear that gay people existed. It talks about them quite a bit.
No, that is not what blasphemous means. You're creating your own definition.
To answer your question on how we know what God intended, from a Christian perspective we can know in a few ways. One is what the bible says. The other is in what we know of God's nature and character. And lastly, plain old common sense. It would be a contradiction of what is clearly stated in the scriptures, for starters. I could explain further but that should be enough.
As for your comments on hermaphrodites, for starters that is different than transgenderism. Secondly, that is extremely rare. And lastly and most importantly, things like that exist because this is a fallen, corrupted world. God did not create hermaphrodites in the beginning, that was not part of God's original design. The reason we have things like diseases, deformities, imperfections, etc is because this is a fallen world. A lot of things exist now that were never part of God's intent or design.
Lastly, of course gay people existed back then, the fact that something has been around for a long time doesn't have anything to do with whether or not it's a sin. Sinners of all types have been around since nearly the dawn of time. Doesn't mean God approves of everything people do. lol.
