Definitions of terms and labels

Definition of Terms The first thing to note is that these terms are defined differently by different people. Furthermore, as our culture is changing, these terms are changing in their definitions. To make matters even more complicated, as culture changes some of these...
Book Recommendation – Love Thy Body

Book Recommendation – Love Thy Body

I would like to recommend the book Love Thy Body by Nancy Pearcey. You could read some good book reviews here and here. Although there is only one chapter on transgender issues, the whole book is very important. Pearcey gives a very clear and strong critique of the...

Giving Pastoral Care to a Crossdresser or Transgendered Person

I know many pastors, Christian counselors, and wives of crossdressers are coming to my website, probably in the hopes of finding help in ministering to crossdressers, transsexuals, or people struggling with gender dysphoria. I can tell this by looking at the search...
Book Recommendation – Understanding Gender Dysphoria

Book Recommendation – Understanding Gender Dysphoria

I want to strongly recommend Mark Yarhouse’s book called “Understanding Gender Dysphoria.” You can read about Dr. Yarhouse – here. He is an expert on matters of sexual identity, and is well respected by both Christians and non-Christians. To be honest, I did not agree...

Analogies to Transgender

Analogies are never fail proof. They always break down at some point because by definition, they compare two things that are alike in some ways but also not alike in some ways. But they are still helpful, and in this case particularly powerful in my opinion. A lot of...

Crossdressing and Hormone Release

I read a book called – Divine Sex: A Compelling Vision for Christian Relationship in a Hypersexualized Age by Jonathan Grant – and I wanted to share with you some quotes and reflections related to crossdressing and hormones / neurotransmitters. In general,...
Race and Transgender Issues

Race and Transgender Issues

In our culture the common belief is that people can be whoever they want to be. We craft our own identity and what matters is our heart, not physical reality. Of course, as Christians, we reject this idea. It is not we who make our own identities, but we are given our...

Book Recommendation – When Harry Became Sally

Book Recommendation – When Harry Became Sally

I recently finished reading the book, When Harry Became Sally, by Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation. This is a really well written book that examines the “transgender moment” our country has been in. Though I’m not thrilled about the title to this...
The Myth of “Choosing to be Yourself”

The Myth of “Choosing to be Yourself”

I’m going to quoting a lengthy section from a book by Tim Keller, called Preaching: Communicating Faith in an Age of Skepticism. He brilliantly picks apart the modern ideas of our culture, including the myth of “choosing to be yourself.” He begins by...

Detransitioning and Regret

I’ve been reading up about people who got medical surgeries to alter the way their bodies look to live as the opposite sex, who then later on, decided to stop taking the hormones and live as their original biological sex once again.  These transsexuals, for...

Transabled and Transgender

There are many parallels between those with transgender feelings and those with “transabled” feelings. These are the feelings of people who desire to have a body part amputated to be able to feel themselves and feel at peace. Because of all the transgender...

Transgenderism is a psychological problem

Those in the crossdressing community love to argue that crossdressing is a harmless hobby. Although other people in the culture find it weird, they just need more time to get used to it and see that it actually can be a fun hobby if not done to excess. Or they say...
