  1. On drugs

    Most psychologists these days believe that gender identity can diverge from biological sex. The idea is that humans are so complicated that this can and does happen, that the formation of gender identity is a complicated process, and there is plenty of opportunity for it to go off the rails (here is a good summary: I’ve been going through the above list and elsewhere looking for arguments to the contrary. Instead, I find mostly political arguments (eg, referring to “Transgender Ideologies”), and plenty of discussion of how disruptive and destructive TG and related behaviors are (not news to me!) I’m looking for anything that explains why TG is not real, not political arguments about why it’s terrible.

    For example: ends with this: “But what about gender identity—one’s internal sense of self … ? It’s already 5:30pm … Let’s call it a day and tackle this one in the next post.” But then NO follow-up, no Part 3 !

    The closest thing I can find is autogynephilia. But even if autogynephilia is real that does not necessarily mean that TG is not. And some autogynephilia theorists even accept transitioning as an acceptable outcome since it is incurable and intractable.

    • Barnabas

      Great to hear from you after a really long time! How have you been?

      Thank you for the insightful comment. Have you read the books that are listed?

      I confess that I have not delved too much into the area of biology and transgenderism. There is a lot to read. And it can get complicated. Mostly I’ve read summaries from people who have read those details, such as “Embodied” a book by Preston Sprinkle. Or Understanding Gender Dysphoria. I would love to delve into this area myself but time is prohibiting me from doing so. With the limited time I have, I try to get deeper into AGP which is what most of the guys here are struggling with. That would explain the lack of good articles on this list that you are looking for.

      Other than doing google searches, I would recommend you read some of the books that I’ve listed above on transgender, and then look at the detailed footnotes in those books to find the deeper resources that you are looking for.

      Do some more searches at centerforfaith also, because I thought I remember some detailed articles on biology there.

      You can also come at it logically, which many of the articles do. You say – “Most psychologists these days believe that gender identity can diverge from biological sex.” but what does that mean? What is a gender identity? Is it a thing of physical substance, or does it simply refer to how a person views themselves? If the latter, than of course I’d agree with that. Many people have a view of themselves that doesn’t fit their biological sex, to a more or less degree. But that is a far cry from saying that there is something biological in them that makes them actually someone of the opposite sex. Anyway, you can start to go in circles with terminology and people saying things like, “a woman is someone who views themselves as a woman.” But what is a woman then? Anyway, let me stop there, and just reiterate that I would love to delve into the biology when I get time.

      If you find good resources, please post them here! Even for contrary views to my own, I would love to still read them.

        I have also been quite busy, so only occasionally have time to delve into this stuff. It seems that there is more repetitive unhelpful verbiage expended on the subject of transgender than almost anything else! But I do understand that my questions do not align with your primary mission; just that it seemed at first glance that the Resources page might already have the answers.

        But to answer your question “What is a gender identity?” I would say it is a neurological state in the brain, deeper and more permanent than simply how a person views himself. For example, I could view myself as a great engineer based on feedback from others, successful projects completed, etc, but failure could change my view. And I agree that you can go in circles with terminology, which is why I stay away from semantic arguments such as what “a woman is”.

      The Book Male Female Other by Jason Evert talks about these issues and more. He spent over 2 years researching it. It has 24 pages of references. He looks at the 18 top claims of Gender Theory Advocates presents their arguments and looks at the science. He has talked with hundreds of individuals who suffer with gender dysphoria in his chastity ministry. He has a religious perspective but feels that both those on the left and the right just want to argue and not actually help those with gender issues. His book is available on Amazon and his website

        Thanks Jack. It seems to me that Evert accepts that TG (and GD) are real phenomena. He argues that they are essentially delusional, and presents a lot of religious and philosophical arguments to that effect. His main concern is what to do about it. I agree that it is a kind of insanity, that you might be able to have a coherent GI in your brain opposite from your body.

          I found his book very helpful. I am reading it for the second time. I have read some of his other books and find him to be a genuine person who wants to help others. In chapter 14, he lists 12 issues that can cause a person to be gender dysphoric. Four of them resinate with me in some way but I don’t feel a need to change my gender. However, I can see that if I ran into the wrong people they might try to convince me otherwise.
