The Disappearance of Desire

Metaphysical Transgenderism

That’s a mouthful, and it should not be confused with people who genuinely suffer from gender dysphoria. But the issue has become an “ism,” and this is confusing the conversation about what it means to be human. The Disappearance of Desire, this week’s long read, from Commentary, ponders the place we find ourselves:
Now we have the necessary elements to put together the vision of the human person offered by the trans movement. Each person has a strong innate sense of gender that, according to the activists, may or may not align with his or her physical sex. When the two don’t align, we are dealing, in essence, with brains or minds that are trapped in bodies with the wrong sex organs. It is incumbent on the rest of us, then, to recognize the “true” self that is so trapped and help it break free from the prison of the body. This is a profoundly metaphysical, even spiritual, vision.
