Should You Call a Transgender Person "Him" or "Her"?

Andrew T. Walker | Aug 30, 2017

It’s very common to hear debates about pronoun usage. For example, should you call a transgender male “he” (as they identify themselves) or “she” (since they are biologically female)?

Christians disagree—hopefully charitably—about pronoun usage, but here is some helpful advice from Andrew Walker, author of God and The Transgender Debate.

In the book, Andrew Walker explores what, if anything, it means to be male or female, and suggests how each of us can think through the various views on gender. He looks at what Jesus said – the Jesus who debated issues but, much more than that, who loved people. And he reveals why what Jesus said is good news for everyone.
