Vatican Denounces Gender Theory as "Confused Concept of Freedom"

Summary from the AllSides News Team

In a new document released on Monday, the Vatican rejected gender theory and the idea that one can choose their gender as an attempt to "annihilate nature." The 30-page document, called "Male and Female He Created Them," has been criticized by LGBTQ advocates as inciting hatred. The document rejects the concepts of "intersex" and "transgender" as characteristic of a postmodern culture and says the purpose of biological "complementarity" of male and female sex organs is to ensure procreation. The document was reportedly issued to Catholic educators as a guide on the subject of gender theory.
