Today, biological men who identify as women are celebrated. Young girls taking puberty blockers are hailed as brave. How did we arrive at this place in our culture?


Carl Trueman, a professor at Grove City College and author of “The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self,” says humanity’s search for identity played a large role in the sexual revolution and the embrace of gender identities we see today.


“I set the sexual revolution against the background of what I call the revolution in selfhood, which … is a fundamental transformation in the way that human beings think of their personal identities,” Trueman says.


Trueman joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain how he believes society has come to embrace gender identity ideology.
