In an article from the National Catholic Reporter, the outlet describes that on June 10, 2019, the Vatican released a document entitled “Male and female he created them.” The document, which does not carry the Pope’s signature, is meant to serve as an aid for Catholic school teachers. It was immediatley critized by LGBTQ+ Catholics as it overtly denounced the legitimacy of transgender identities. It invokes the creation story as evidence of the intended difference between men and women and suggests that such identities are firm and unchangeable. Meanwhile, the Pope has delivered contradictory remarks in regards to acceptance of gender theory. LGBTQ+ rights activists are frustrated with the church as it continues to echo sentiments that alienate them and delegitimize their identities.
