The Journal

Trans: When Ideology Meets Reality

"An intelligent, thorough rejoinder to an idea that has swept across much of the liberal world seemingly overnight...Open conversation about such fraught issues is the only realistic path forward." - New York Times


"Biological sex is no longer accepted as a basic fact of life. It is forbidden to admit that female people sometimes need protection and privacy from male ones. In an analysis that is at once expert, sympathetic and urgent, Helen Joyce offers an antidote to the chaos and cancelling."
