Guess who's coming to lunch … again
(Virtue Online) Nine years ago, in 2009, I interviewed M. She was in the eighth year of a 17-year pilgrimage, having transitioned from living as a man, to living as a woman. She is of German American origin, an attorney who had worked for a number of high-level financial firms. She had been married, raised two sons and is now divorced. She wrote, asking to meet with me regarding what she saw as serious confusion in traditional Anglican circles regarding the differences between homosexuality and transsexuality. With this interview, I broke new ground. Till then I had never met such a person, however I did know that such persons existed; I had simply never met one.
During the course of the interview, she made this astonishing confession. “Let’s be clear that there is no such thing as “transgender behavior”. Transgender, by definition, has nothing to do with behavior. It has to do with who one perceives oneself to be. I do not endorse any sexual behavior that does not comport with traditional Christian teaching. This includes not only homosexuality, but also adultery and fornication. They are all sin, and neither is better or worse than any other. All separate us from God. The biblical standard for sexual behavior is chastity outside of traditional male-female marriage, monogamy and fidelity within it; and it applies to everyone, including transgender folks.”
Thus began an unusual journey into the mind and body of a person who honestly believed she should have been born a woman and not a man.
