..and realised that we must see this wretched thing as part of the crude damage that is being done in so many ways to the natural world. We understand the horrible mess that is being made in our oceans with the dumping of plastic waste and so on. The horrible mess that is happening to human beings with this wetched gender-rubbish also needs to be addressed.
"Valuing one’s own body in its femininity or
masculinity is necessary if I am going to be able to recognize myself in an encounter with someone
who is different. In this way we can joyfully accept the specific gifts of another man or woman, the
work of God the Creator, and find mutual enrichment. It is not a healthy attitude which would seek
to cancel out sexual difference because it no longer knows how to confront it". Pope Francis, in Laudato Si.
