Queer Theory on the Rise


The last years have seen the rise of a new ideology in the West. It has sometimes been described as transgenderism, and sometimes as queer theory. It differs from previous movements in that it doesn’t specifically push for either sexual promiscuity or “gay rights”. Rather, it is an attack on the whole concept of a fixed sexual identity. Queer theory involves a critique of all that used to be labelled “normal” when it comes to sexuality and gender, and it has crowned the transsexual community as the heroes of our time. How should this way of thinking be understood? How is it implemented in schools and pre-schools – with Sweden as a prominent example? And how could we formulate a biblical response?
