For those liberals and progressives who fret about the rapidly changing gender landscape, the agonized argument over gender-affirming care for children is different.
The possibility that children might make irreversible decisions on this particular question that they later regret is, for many people, simply intolerable.

For a binary identity that is supposedly so fixed and powerful, gender eludes and confounds us constantly.
Efforts to define the terms “man” and “woman,” so popular on the campaign trail as gender identity has become a white hot issue in our politics, inevitably end in unsatisfying tautologies.
