Heritage’s Ryan Anderson has been busy combatting the lies of the Left through his persuasive writing on the top social issues of our times.

In his latest book, When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment, he tackles the transgender issue head-on.

According to the publisher:

America is in the midst of what has been called a “transgender moment.” Not long ago, most Americans had never heard of transgender identity, but within the space of a year it became a cause claiming the mantle of civil rights.

But can a boy truly be “trapped” in a girl’s body? Can modern medicine really “reassign” sex? Is sex something “assigned” in the first place? What’s the loving response to a friend or child experiencing a gender-identity conflict? What should our law say on these issues?

When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment provides thoughtful answers to all of these questions. Drawing on the best insights from biology, psychology, and philosophy, Ryan T. Anderson offers a balanced approach to the policy issues, a nuanced vision of human embodiment, and a sober and honest survey of the human costs of getting human nature wrong.

Regarding the book people are saying:

When Harry Became Sally is an eminently readable and insightful guide for all who find themselves perplexed by today’s debates on gender identity. Ryan Anderson’s analysis of the ideas that are fueling the transgender movement, their human costs and their political implications will be a valuable resource for parents, educators and policy makers.
Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University, and author of Rights Talk and A Nation Under Lawyers.

For an informed and sensitive presentation of gender identity issues, When Harry Became Sally is a must-read book. It is especially a must for those in psychiatry, psychology and counselling.
Paul Vitz, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, New York University, and Senior Scholar, Institute for the Psychological Sciences.

I always read Ryan Anderson with great admiration. When Harry Became Sally is an always focused, informative, fair-minded, lucid and fact-based guide to just and reasonable policies in place of government- and corporation-mandated falsification of science, medicine, public records and history; suppression of free speech and family rights; and many-sided, often irreversible injustice to the vulnerable.
John Finnis, Professor of Law & Legal Philosophy Emeritus, University of Oxford.

I hope you will take the opportunity to read Anderson’s book and find out the truth of the transgender movement.

You can pre-order your own copy on Amazon today.

Anderson and Heritage will continue to courageously address these sensitive issues that our country struggles with.

What do you think is the biggest social issue of our day? Why do you think the Left pushes so hard on these social issues?

THANKS for the relationship & the coffee mug I received from The Heritage Foundation. Yesterday, 1-4-18, I mailed a check to HF for $2.00. I hope you can accept that large donation.

We appreciate your support.

Aloha from Marlene Beal in Dana Point, CA, All along I have been impressed by the Heritage Foundation and have supported the same. Within the past month or so, the “B” in my last name Beal was dropped and now mailings to me say: Mrs. Marlene Eal… Thanks, if you could fix that!

Truman’s popularity lies in the fact that he speaks Americanese. He speaks for Americans as they would like to be able to speak. Very simply “the left” claims to be superior and distains everyone else. If you do not agree with them – they hate you. It was said many years ago that a Communist hates all who are “better off” than they are and that includes in intelligence. Call them by any name you wish, globalist, democrat, whatever – they
are all the same _ Communists / haters

Well…I typed out a lengthy excoriation of this debate, but when I hit “post comment” it was deleted. I think I’ve had it with Heritage.
PS Not the first time this has happened.

I think it’s the LGBT vs. us “straights.” The LGBTs target Christians and their businesses because we are the biggest opponent of their wicked life-style.

The concept for children under 16 is best ignored. Let them grapple with reality until they are clear enough to decide. Pushing and prompting elementary school children ( and younger) is pure evil. They are too impressionable.

Everything becomes an issue!
People have always been doing weird things. That’s not new. Somebody wants to sleep with their kangaroo – so sleep with your kangaroo – but stop insisting that l applaud.
The left seems intent on making weird normal…by insisting that normal is not!
I haven’t a clue, as to why the left do what they do . . . ?

Women’s equality. Current laws address inequality, but these ancedotal issues are just political rhetoric and divisive.
Heritage Foundation must be careful not to divide the Republican Party. The Democratic agenda should be your focus. Divide the GOP, lose the independents / moderates, & Democrats will sweep the elections.

To create distraction and confusion away from the more important issues. Fake news just eats it up & keeps feeding the sheep.

Caroline Woodis - January 9, 2018

Because they want/need affirmation of their own sad predicament. They have an agenda that started with just wanting to be accepted, but now includes goals that were unthinkable just a few years ago. This quest will not stop because they will never FEEL accepted no matter how far they push because they recognize on their own that their lifestyle is an aberration. L

The biggest issue is COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION including:

1. Enforce our laws. Trump started this.
2. Empower our Immigration Services. Trump has done this. What is now required:
3. BUILD THE WALL WITH ALL TECHNOLOGY AVAILABLE
4. ADD ALL TECHNOLOGY to stop illegal IMPORTS.
5. ADD ALL TECHNOLOGY to stop illegal LEGAL IMMIGRATION. Such as overstaying visa persons.
6. END CHAIN IMMIGRATION.
7. END DIVERSITY IMMIGRATION.
8. SET UP A NEW MERIT & USA NEEDS BASED IMMIGRATION SYSTEM.
9. THEN DO DACA ON CASE BY CASE SITUATION.

Social issues in general are attacks on the cultural status quo, and originate in the left. The only exception I can think of is the original 1960’s civil-rights movement, which originated with black Christians who had a legitimate complaint.
Current hot-button issues can be traced to Antonio Gramsci’s plan to conquer Western culture by a ‘march through the institutions’ in which each of society’s mediating institutions – news media, entertainment, religion, etc. – would be subverted by attacks on their leading individuals and on their principles, and taken over by rebellious elements. The young and ignorant are now leading the charge, using Alinsky’s tactical manual. The final enemy is belief in God, because they cannot tolerate a belief in anything more powerful and morally correct than ‘the state’.

Abortion. While LGBT demands of approval and promotion are damaging to a stable society, murdering “inconvenient” children has led to a denigration of life everywhere we turn. Parents experience emotional and sometimes physical damage and the ripples extend endlessly. Every aspect of society is affected, even population demographics and the stability of Social Security. Our civilization will not long survive if we continue to throw away lives that should be cherished.

The transgender issue is pushed hard by the left because is a false social problem, but is an emotional one that can be used to avoid the actual social problems that need to be addressed

Over 4 decades “A Nation at Risk” due to the failure of our public schools … an act of treason had we not done to ourselves” warned Reagan. Choice will force needed change BUT only TAXPAYERS in numbers can counterweight the millions gainfully attached K-16 voting in local, state, and federal elections. Despite an ANNUAL 1 Trillion $ extraction from America’s taxbase, we rank 28th or lower among industrial nations. Four decades of pervasive mediocrity has America on her knees.

Imagine the confusion among traditional families as to what their children/students are being taught in schools!! Violating principles formerly reserved for families and churches are taught without permission or knowledge of taxpayers or their families! Where by law are the rights of local school boards to insure the integrity of what is taught in their communities? How will be the discussions in community homes around its dinner tables?
