How to Live as a Man and as Myself?

How to Live as a Man and as Myself?

For those in our community who have given up crossdressing or who are trying to heal from gender dysphoria, one of the common questions asked is: “what does it look like for me to live as a man?” It’s straightforward to say that we should stop...

The Toughest Time in History

Many of us today might feel like we are stuck in the worst period of history given our particular struggles. At no time in history have crossdressing and transgenderism been more accepted and celebrated than they are today. Even many people who don’t experience gender...

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

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...
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...
Christmas Meditation on the Incarnation and Gender

Christmas Meditation on the Incarnation and Gender

From Matthew 1: 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a...
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...
Integration and Contentment

Integration and Contentment

This post is different from my other posts. I have written from a more neutral vantage point rather than specifically out of a Christian worldview, in the hope that this post can help others who may not share my faith. In this post, I synthesize a lot of the things I...
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...
