When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Ryan T. Anderson

Narrated By: Tom Parks

Date: July 2018

Duration: 8 hours 56 minutes

Summary:

Can a boy be trapped in a girl's body? Can modern medicine reassign sex? Is our sex assigned to us in the first place? What is the most loving response to a person experiencing a conflicted sense of gender? What should our law say on matters of gender identity? When Harry Became Sally provides thoughtful answers to questions arising from our transgender moment. Drawing on the best insights from biology, psychology, and philosophy, Ryan Anderson offers a nuanced view of human embodiment, a balanced approach to public policy on gender identity, and a sober assessment of the human costs of getting human nature wrong. This book exposes the contrast between the media's sunny depiction of gender fluidity and the often sad reality of living with gender dysphoria. Everyone has something at stake in the controversies over transgender ideology, and Anderson offers a strategy for pushing back with principle and prudence, compassion and grace.

    I knew of Andersen's conservative leanings prior to listening to this. And, I actually saw that as a positive since the current zeitgeist around this topic is quite radical and not open to contrarian debate. I found this book to be a much needed injection of rationality that challenges some of the radical ideology that is being pushed. Andersen focuses on data and amplifies the voices of doctors and scientists who disagree with some of the medical and psychological advice being purveyed to the families with children who grappling with confusions about their gender identities. He does a nice job laying out a measured, compassionate argument that urges patience and caution and points out the dangers of the permanancies of exogenous medications and surgeries. I also have to give credit to Andersen for looking towards the right side of the political spectrum and challenging the sometimes rigid, ossified interpretations of gender roles as a source of gender confusion in children.
