    For many thousands of years humans held a binary view of gender, mainly defined by the observable anatomical differences between males and females. But today, according to transgender activists and, increasingly, laws written for them, gender identity has nothing to do with physiology; it’s all in our heads. Western civilization has been slouching toward this revelation for a long time, writes theologian Douglas Farrow.
