Direct replacement of ‘sex’ with ‘gender’ in U.S. passport and Social Security policies

Guess the boys have formally declared that female biology doesn’t matter anymore. Unless they want to punish the shit out of us for actually having it.

Sex matters.

FYI

At the federal level, pro-gender lobbyists have been successful in changing both Social Security and United States passport policy. Instead of requiring a “sex change operation,” the new policies merely require a physician’s attestation of “appropriate clinical treatment” (social security) or “gender-related care” (passports) of any kind. Mere psychiatric treatment is acceptable, as if sex were just in your mind.

If so, such studies are now utterly illegitimate. Source by source, data bases showing sex differentials are being made illegitimate. Studies which include men who have hired M.D.s to write a note saying they are gender-questioning or trans should be ignored by any reputable scientific journal. I wonder when the scientists who are working on legitimate studies will finally call a halt. If they do not, nothing any scientific study says about “women” will have any validity any more.
