I think transgenderism is one of the most confusing, misleading, and tragic issues of our time. In the prophetic Family Proclamation, which was issued 28 years ago before gender became the issue that it is today (which is truly prophetic, in my view), it says:
"All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose."
