Gender Incongruence/Transgenderism

Before the meeting

The purpose of this unit

The subject of gender confusion/transgenderism is difficult and impacts individuals and families in a variety of ways. This discussion topic is intended as a tool to bring important information forward, facilitate conversations and increase understanding.   Our loved ones, particularly our children, need us to understand the science associated with gender dysphoria and the ramifications – both physical and emotional – of social, hormonal and surgical transitioning.  True compassion and caring requires this of each of us.

Definitions and Steps of Transitioning

Gender Disphoria – A sense of unease that a person may have because of a mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity.

Sex – Biological indication of male and female.

Gender – Psychological and cultural characteristics associated with biological sex.

Gender Identity – A person’s internal sense of being male, female, or something else.

Transgender – Referring to the broad spectrum of individuals who identify with a gender other than that associated with their birth sex


1. Social transition –The process of the child presenting them self in the sex-stereotypical manner (appearance, behavior, pronouns, etc.) of their perceived gender identity.

2. Puberty blockers – Drugs used to prevent children with gender dysphoria from going through puberty at a normal age – creating an abnormal condition in order to prevent normal development.

3. Cross-sex hormones – a regimen of hormones administered for the purpose of chemically altering secondary sexual characteristics to match those of the opposite sex.

4. Sex reassignment surgery – “sex change” – attempts to surgically transform the genitals of a person to that of the opposite sex.
