(Zenit) The New Pangenderism: Transgenders, Polysexuals and Sex Reassignment Surgery

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Here is a response to questions on bioethics regarding issues related to sex and gender, answered by the fellows of the Culture of Life Foundation.

E. Christian Brugger writes:

This week's ruling by the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) to make "transgender" a protected status under the 1964 Civil Rights Act is another reminder of the confusions that characterize our community's understanding of sex and gender. Indeed, a range of sex/gender related psycho-affective conditions traditionally designated as disorders are now identified as ordered expressions of gender and sexual identity by some members of the medical profession and wider secular society. These include transgenderism, transsexualism, transvestism, bigenderism, genderqueerism, homosexuality, bisexuality, pansexuality, polysexuality and asexuality, to name a few.

This baffling multiplication of categories of sexuality often confuses people. They wonder whether the terms have any validity or whether they're partially contrived by sexual libertines to flaunt their rejection of traditional morality.

Read it all.
