The growth of the transgender movement has left many unanswered questions, but the media never seems to accurately represent both sides. In 2015, Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg collaborated with Dale O’Leary to produce a comprehensive 42-page policy paper, “Understanding and Responding to the Transgender Movement.” Now, Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation has provided an even more comprehensive treatment of the topic with a 251-page book. When Harry Became Sally is a fair and informed assessment of the transgender ideology written not to convert the activists, but rather to inform the average American that the implications of gender identity, gender fluidity, and transitioning may go beyond what we have been told by the media. In an engaging walkthrough of every aspect of this growing movement, Anderson makes it clear that we have much more to learn.The stories of psychologists, biologists, and philosophers give the book more depth than any other response to the transgender movement thus far. In a crusade dominated by emotion and skewed statistics, it is refreshing to readdress the core meaning of male and female and the differences between the sexes. Anderson moves beyond statistics and engages with literature of both sides, seeking to give readers the tools to address this movement in an informed and persuasive way.Even more moving are the testimonies of men and women who found “transitioning” was not the answer. Often squelched and silenced, the voices of these “detransitioners” are shared with no sense of bias, allowing raw experiences to do the talking and the readers to make their own conclusions.When one looks at the dangers of gender transition and accompanying reckless treatment plans, it becomes clear that transgenderism is turning medicine into a playground with no rules. Anderson draws from the care plans of physicians and psychologists to give us the data our newspapers would never publish. He tells the stories of doctors ambushed for asking questions and children being given more authority than an average adult. Things are changing, medicine is being politicized, and children are becoming the choosers, even though all the research points in the opposite direction as the path to comprehensive health.This deviates from the typical brash narratives of transgenderism. As Anderson makes clear, he is not seeking to destroy a movement, but to save lives. Never failing to speak with love, the author has given us one of the most systematic and sensitive approaches to gender identity. As we follow the different waves of feminism and philosophy, it is evident that this ideology had been percolating for years, but our society is only now coming to face the ramifications. His brilliant overview of policy shows that everyone is affected by this movement. While legislative bans and surgical operations seem like the simplest solution to our problem, they only put a Band-Aid on a very large wound and drive a wedge deeper into a cracked foundation.With grace and humility, Anderson acknowledges that our society is not perfect. In fact, he admits that societal stereotypes greatly contribute to many distortions of gender identity. Anderson is not seeking to validate stereotypes, but to illuminate how complex the issue is. We have rushed to medical and political decisions that have radical implications, without truly understanding what we have done. Anderson asks us to think, not simply with our hearts, but with our heads.Anderson’s main goal is to inform and encourage, reminding us that taking a position is not enough. There is still much to be done, still much to be explained, still much to be researched. In the meantime, we are doing irreparable damage and silencing voices, rather than empowering them. Anderson proves that we must hold on to the reality of humans being embodied as male or female, even while society diminishes the importance of human nature altogether. Our culture believes that breaking foundations is the only form of progress, but this will only destabilize the moral architecture of society.Hannah Borchers is an intern at Family Research Council.
Luke 23:25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will. Jesus had come to save people from their sins. Jesus loved and served. The religious people hated Him so much that they chose a hardened criminal to go free instead of Jesus. They didn't want the wicked man, but anyone would be better than Jesus. They feared Him. He talked about God's love. He spoke of salvation that He would purchase and not their works. Jesus had turned the religious world upside down. They wanted Him dead. Who do you choose? Do you prefer this world and rebellion over a God that loves you? Do you want sin instead of salvation? Do you wish you over Him? Who would you have go free? Will you allow Him to give you real freedom that this world has no way of offering? Trust Christ today. Photo by Ashim D'Silva on Unsplash
Ezekiel 18:23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? God doesn't want anyone to die or to be destroyed. He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. He wants to see them return to Him and live in truth. God loves you. He doesn't want you to die and go to hell. He wants you to be saved. He has done all that is necessary for your salvation. He has paid for your sins. He offers you a free gift. If you just accept the gift, believe Him you can be saved. Regardless just like He said to His people in the Old Testament He loved them. He took no pleasure in their death. You will be the one that chooses not to believe. You will choose rebellion and suffer the consequences for yourself. Or you will trust Christ. He wants you saved. He wants you forgiven. Will you trust Him today? Photo by Cristian Grecu on Unsplash
Matthew 26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly. Jesus had warned Peter about his pride repeatedly. Peter had promised that he would never deny the Lord Jesus even if the others did. Jesus told Peter that he would be severely tested. Jesus let Peter know that he would indeed deny him. Now that he had denied Jesus he heard the rooster crow. He remembered what Jesus said. Remembering his pride broke his heart. He began to cry as a broken man. The Holy Spirit is at work in our lives. He warns us. We hear preaching. We get truth given to us. We often choose to ignore the truth until! Until we fall, we sin, we are made to realize that our pride has indeed lead to a fall. So much better would be to remain sensitive to the Holy Spirit, to allow Him to convict us, to warn us of sin. Ask God to work and guide in your life. Seek Him. Listen as the Word is spoken and preached that God would work before you have to […]
As Phil Johnson once posted, "I often ask Arminians,'Why do you even pray for the lost? Your theology tells you God has already done everything He could possibly do to save them and now its all up to them. So why do you pray for your lost relatives? Something in you knows that God is sovereign over their hearts'."As we read through the Scripture, it is clear we are to pray for the lost. Paul prays for his fellow unbelieving Jews, "Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved." (Romans 10:1) But the Arminian almost always asks, "Why do YOU pray for the lost if GOD already choose to save them or not."
