This is from a few months ago on my Philosophy blog. Recent flurries of activity on social media prompt me to offer it to a wider audience.
I've just noted on my other blog
that living as a transsexual has been categorised by the Congregation
for the Doctrine of the Faith as incompatible with the Faith. This is
about the argument in favour of tolerating or promoting this lifestyle.
The transsexual phenomenon is not entirely new, but it is taking on a new form and become a cause celebre with
astonishing speed. From a common-sense point of view it seems sheer
lunacy: people can now simply claim to be the sex opposite to that
indicated by their biology, and have this assertion officially
recognised, with or without any medical diagnosis or intervention (not
that either would make any real difference).
