The One Thing 331: Why We Need To Talk More About Gender with Dr Patrica Weerakoon

Dr Patricia Weerakoon discusses why our churches need to have clarity about gender, orientation and identity from pastoral, theological and medical perspectives. 

  • There has been significant shifts in people presenting with transgender issues since around 2011-12
  • Biology – sexual gender, orientation and identity
  • Making distinctions between personality, stereotyping and sexual identity
  • Engaging in conversation between trans-exclusionary radical feminists and people holding transgender ideology
  • There are three different conversations that need to be had: speaking with compassion to those who are struggling with dysphoria, speaking with clarity with those who are promoting the ideology and parents speaking with honesty to children
