Heldt: ‘When Harry Became Sally’ — an absolute must-read for modern parents
A closer look at Ryan T. Anderson’s ‘When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment’[National Catholic Register] Several months ago I reviewed Ryan T. Anderson’s latest book, When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment. Then this past week, I attended a lecture he gave on the material here in Denver. (If you ever have the chance to attend one of Ryan T. Anderson’s talks in person, I highly recommend it!)

Anderson’s book is an absolute must-read for modern parents. If, like me, you’re raising kids in this present cultural climate, marked by a relativistic understanding of human sexuality and aggressive LGBQT activism, then you need to be aware of what your child is hearing from their school, their peers and the media. And you need to understand what transgenderism is, so that you can effectively teach your kids the truth.
Because believe me, they won’t be getting the truth anywhere else.
When Harry Became Sally combines solid scientific evidence (much of which has been compiled by transgender-friendly researchers and experts), personal anecdotes and testimonies from transgendered men and women themselves, and a well-documented overview of the current political game to paint a clear, rather distressing picture of what is being done to children in the name of “compassion” and “science.” Puberty-blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, and an ideology rooted in the false notion that sex is somehow “assigned” to children at birth comprise the current approach kids (as young as 4 years old) who may express discomfort with his or her gender. Never mind that up to 90 percent of these children, given the opportunity to experience puberty naturally, will grow out of their gender dysphoria. Never mind that people who have transitioned are 19 times more likely to commit suicide — even in countries that are the most embracing of transgendered people. Never mind that the Obama administration is on record as saying that research could not demonstrate that the outcomes of transitioning are in any way positive, or worth the risks.
