Transgenderism

What is Transgenderism?

Those who espouse “transgenderism” argue that a human person is assigned their gender at birth, based on their observed anatomy. Consequently, when a biological male identifies as female and then has related surgery, they speak of that medical practice as “gender confirmation” vs. “gender reassignment,” because they believe their anatomy now reflects their true identity as a human person.

The Church has a different take, one that is grounded in genuinely confirmed reality. One is conceived either male or female, and this also applies to hermaphrodites who, though they manifest both male and female anatomical aspects at birth, are either biological boys or girls.

In this light, the Church recognizes that every human person is created in the image and likeness of God, male or female (Gen. 1:26-27). – From article “The Church’s Position on ‘Transgenderism’” by Tom Nash

We are all beautifully and wonderfully made in the image and likeness of God.

Genesis teaches us that God made man and woman and Jesus reaffirms this In Matthew 19:4-5, “Jesus answered, ‘Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female.'"

The Catechism says in 1701: "Christ, . . . in the very revelation of the mystery of the Father and of his love, makes man fully manifest to himself and brings to light his exalted vocation." It is in Christ, "the image of the invisible God," that man has been created "in the image and likeness" of the Creator. It is in Christ, Redeemer and Savior, that the divine image, disfigured in man by the first sin, has been restored to its original beauty and ennobled by the grace of God.

God made each of us unique and loves us just the way we are.
