The transgender movement has hit breakneck speed. It’s gone from something that most Americans had never heard of to a cause claiming the mantle of civil rights. Can a boy be “trapped” in a girl’s body? Can modern medicine “reassign” sex? What’s the loving response to a friend or child experiencing a gender-identity conflict? What should our laws say on these issues? Drawing on the best insights from biology, psychology and philosophy, When Harry Became Sally author Ryan T. Anderson offers a balanced approach to policy issues, a nuanced vision of human embodiment and a sober and honest survey of the costs of getting human nature wrong.
