GENDER AND ETHICS Transgenderism and the dissolution of identity
“Sex” as a classificatory system for human beings (at least) as defined by the religious tradition from Sinai consists of male and female and a category traditionally known as the hermaphrodite and nowadays called “intersex”. What are ultimately determinative are the actual reproductive organs and genitalia. The “intersex” person is one with reproductive organs and genitalia of both sexes.

BOOK REVIEW Skewed analysis of republic in crisis
He makes no secret of the fact that he is a conservative Republican. But he is not, at least in his own view, an ideologue. In terms of understanding his book, nothing is lost by taking him at his word. His basic proposition is that America is fractured because it is no longer able to decide whether it should proceed on the basis of nostalgia (a word constantly coming up in the book) for what he thinks progressives regard as the glory days of the mid-20th century. Levin is in no doubt that they were not in any sense glorious; left unstated is the implication that, even if they were, there is every reason for Americans to turn their backs on them.
