This may be just informative or redundant but it is critical to me. This describes my nearly seven decades of striving with gender dysphoria and my current conclusions. I am so ashamed that it's taken so long to reach these decisions, but this is part of my current identity foundation from which to proceed. Of course, you can assess this as you will.

Eight historical transliterated Hebrew biological sex designations with terse definitions:

Zachar, male.

Nekevah, female.

Androgynos, having both male and female characteristics.

Tumtum, lacking sexual characteristics.

Aylonit hamah, identified female at birth but later naturally developing male characteristics.

Aylonit adam, identified female at birth but later developing male characteristics through human intervention.

Saris hamah, identified male at birth but later naturally developing female characteristics.

Saris adam, identified male at birth and later developing female characteristics through human intervention.

Sex Difference in Christian Theology: Male, Female, and Intersex in the Image of God

by Megan K. DeFranza

This book is a wonderful, merciful, rigorous theological discussion of biological sex and a correlative video is listed here:


Please forgive me if this story is considered inappropriate within this context? Whether anyone considers themselves christian or not, may I please include some extra nuance to your conversation? I have no intention of attempting any kind of evangelization in my contribution, I would however like to supply some extra dimension to the discourse. To advance some concepts I would like to present some quotes.


Isa 56:4-5 KJV 4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; 5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.


Mat 19:11-12 KJV 11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.


Act 8:26-40 KJV (The baptism of the eunuch which I consider too long to be quoted here but far from inconsequential.)

I would love to note first that the term eunuch in these quotes seems to be defined by the Lord Jesus himself to include intersex individuals (eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb). Unwilling (some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men) and willing individuals (eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs) appear similarly defined.

May I also note the quote (unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters). I am aware that original Hebrew literally is translated "a hand and a name" greater than of sons and of daughters. I am, however, quite intrigued by the implications that eunuchs are given recognition separate from sons and from daughters.

I consider myself to be trans (eunuch, saris adam, barren (Isa 54:1-17)). I am not exactly a son and not exactly a daughter. I have a woefully masculine face and physique but I am definitely not a son (AMAB MTF post SRS (GRS)). Therefore I do not fit in sons' spaces or daughters' spaces.

I have immersed myself in the historical, philosophical, psychological, political and theological literature and media for a significant portion of seven decades and conclude that I am physically, politically, perceptually and theologically non-binary. Psychologically, I have identified as female since the age of two or three but diligent discipline discouraged any hint or discussion of my feminine identity or behavior. My ideal puberty would have included hormone blockers until a legally acceptable age to begin HRT and GRS (SRS) and then as nearly normal womanhood as attainable.

In actuality, the diligent discipline has induced my voluntary celibacy and perception that I have been insidiously gaslighted and have a subtle incidence of complex traumatic stress disorder by the dismissing, ignoring, denying and suppressing of my gender identity. I am just one of my peers who is the quarry for metaphorical, euphemistic and literal physical erasure. My concern is not just psychological, health or culture. This is the challenge and analysis of my right to true Judeo-Christian observance and Judeo-Christian expression and Judeo-Christian faith.

I hope my comments and the quotes are discovered to be beneficial. I pray that nothing is found to be triggering because my intent was to be somehow loving, compassionate and empathetic to each and everyone. If you have deigned to read this entire comment, thank you much!

Believe this subject we are discussing here is central to the totalitarianism we suffer under. Totalitarianism steals language and therefore attempts to control our thinking. It also works to undermine the natural affection we share with others, especially the family.

I hesitate to share a song here. A song seems quite inadequate to express what we discuss and I’m quite sure the person who gave it to us felt this way as well. But these totalitarianists have had much practice. Perhaps taking the long view will aid us in finding answers.

Thank you for this! 'Transgender science' is an oxymoron. My mom was an NPR donor, and when they called her recently for another donation she told them she would no longer be giving them any money, specifically because they are pushing this false one-sided narrative you describe.

"When did groups designed to help gay youth like the Trevor Project turn full-on groomer?"

They started grooming when they were founded.

Has anyone forwarded this to NPR? We need to get articles like this to the people that create this nonsense

I rarely listen to NPR anymore. They just parrot, seem to have idea what they are talking about

Excellent article. I appreciate the clarity of the writer's language to expose NPR's linguistic manipulation. The virture signaling permeating NPR perpetuates the harm and mutilation of children and young adults (and the heartbreak for many families.) One word for this: shameful.

Do you have 45 min? Take the US trans survey:


I did this. I created a persona and answered all the questions.

When you do this, send me an email:


If we can get a bunch of folks to take this survey, we can alter the outcomes.

Superbe article! I tried to share it on Facebook but was told it was abusive!!! So, now, the truth is abusive! So I shared it on Twitter. I've also been prevented from going on Instagram. Is there any social media sites other than Twitter who is for freedom of speech and debate???

EXCELLENT! I just want to add that the last few times I listened to NPR (former lifetime listener/supporter, but it's been awhile!), I heard spots where they said that NPR is underwritten by Arcus Foundation. (I also think I heard COMMERCIALS!) By then I knew about Arcus from Bilek's 11thhourblog.com.

Arcus is funded by billionaire Jon Stryker, heir to the Stryker Medical Corp., Arcus seeds money to transgenderist orgs and causes globally, but only if the receivers of the money promote that agenda. You can find out tons about Arcus on that blog, what they do with their money. Not long ago they gave $15M to ACLU.

And, here is a great article from a gay guy, saying the same thing about language:

""Gender" is surrender

Why it is never wise in any battle to use the words of your opponents"


Begins: "Are you “gender critical”?

Do you find yourself debating the existence of “gender identity”?

Have you discussed the unprecedented surge in “gender dysphoria”?

If you have, you may have unintentionally ceded linguistic territory in a battle principally waged in the sphere of language."


"We must untether our language from that of our opponents, it is their greatest and most dangerous subterfuge."

I will not refer to a boy or man as "she", or a girl or woman as "he". There are people who are offended by this, but I refuse to participate in their deranged game.

Right on! Sing it sister. 💯 💯 💯 every word. The whole damn left has unraveled and it lays in tatters at my feet. Fuck it all to hell. I’ll never vote democrat again and the MSM can suck it. They all promote and celebrate victimhood as a way of life. They came for black people, now our children, who will wear the mantle of the most oppressed next?
