The Little Grey Book on Sex and Transgender
- Transgenderism has many conundrums. Are we all on a spectrum between 100 per cent male and 100 per cent female, or are we all just male or female? Should biological girls be obliged to accept biological boys who identify as women in their safe spaces at schools? Should two biological men who identify as women be recognised as lesbians? Activists demand gender neutral language, sports, restrooms, change rooms, etc. This treats men and women as same-same, uniform… one shade of grey. Isn’t this the opposite of ‘diversity’? Transgender laws make gender identity a ‘state established belief’, like a state-established religion, creating deep conflicts with the vast majority of people who hold the biological view that their sex is fixed. Patrick Byrne asks searching questions about the impact of gender identity laws on ordinary people and democracy.
- Patrick J Byrne is president of the National Civic Council. For twenty-five years, he has contributed to the NCC’s magazine News Weekly, which has been published since 1942. He is a commentator on political, social and economic affairs. In 2006 he co-wrote the book High and Dry on major changes in water policy that affected Australia’s food production in the Murray- Darling Basin. Over three years, he extensively researched the consequences of changing Australian laws to recognise people by their fluid gender identity in place of their biological sex. He is the author of Transgender: One Shade of Grey (2018).
