The Bible and Transgender Persons Part 1 – A Deconstruction of Deuteronomy 22:5

Deuteronomy_22_Highland_Band

I’ve started to post my analyses of the Bible and how certain parts of it may or may not refer to transgender and intersex persons, and to deconstruct the fundamentalist religious interpretations of certain passages which lead people to condemn and commit violence against us. I’m going to post this link to Deuteronomy 22:5 first, which deals with the subject of cross-dressing.

I’ll let the link below do the rest of the talking for me, rather than repeat it. I intend to start posting my research on the Bible, which I started a month ago, about once per day.

    Thank you so much for doing the research on this. So far, it’s quite good, and I look for more of the same. I believe you’re building a good resource for those of us who are both Christian and gender non-conforming.

    I would like to ask why you are using the King James Version as your default translation. Even for a pastor’s kid and lover of Shakespeare, like me, sometimes the language can get rather opaque.

    Blessings on you!

      Thank you for the compliments, Tara. I have several more articles I shall be posting over the next week or two.

      I have been using the King James version as sort of a “common denominator” of the Old and New Testaments due to its age and heritage. It is currently the most-used version in the United States, and although sources differ, it is likely the most-used version in the English speaking world. It also has been translated into nearly every other language on Earth, although it is not necessarily the most popular version in non-English-speaking countries.
