Welcome to Episode 153 of the Being Human Podcast: How to Talk About Gender Issues

How do we talk about gender issues to people who don’t necessarily share the same views? How can we make sense of the gender ideologies and confusion so prevalent in our culture today? In this week’s episode, Dr. Greg shares important principles to remember when engaging others in conversation on this sensitive topic.


Discussed in the episode: 

  • How do we communicate a Catholic perspective on gender ideology to those who may not share the same perspective?

  • The meaning and importance of owning our mistakes as a Church;

  • Entering into relationship with another as a necessary prerequisite to evangelizing with love;

  • Why it’s essential to recognize the distinction between gender stereotypes and gender identity;

  • The importance of understanding that each person has different parts and experiences within themselves;

  • How communion can be possible in the midst of varying parts and perspectives;

  • Seeing the developmental stages starting from conception as a gradual becoming more of who God calls us to be;

  • Why modeling from the same-sex parent and complementarity from the opposite-sex parent significantly impacts the formation of a child’s identity.
