The Catholic Church has issued an official document rejecting the idea that you can decide if you are a man or a woman. The Vatican paper insists that the sexual ‘complementarity’ of men and women is to make babies. Published during LGBT month, the document was quickly rounded upon by LGBT Catholics who said it contributed to bigotry and violence against gay and transgender people. Advocacy group New Ways Ministry said it would further confuse individuals questioning their gender identity or sexual orientation and at risk of self-harm.
