In what some describe as a sensible return to common-sense policies, the Trump administration has reportedly proposed redefining gender/sex as an immutable condition that cannot be altered by whim.
In a memo obtained by The New York Times, the Department of Health and Human Services argues that federal agencies should adopt a definition of gender that’s based “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.”
Though biological science makes it clear that only two distinct genders exist, the administration of former President Barack Hussein Obama muddied the definition of gender for political purposes.
“A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of sex in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing sex largely as an individual’s choice — and prompting fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept,” the Times notes.
Thanks to Obama’s meddling and rhetoric, the transgender community became convinced that men who identify as women reserve the right to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms. The normalization of this pseudo science subsequently led to an increase in sexual abusers identifying as women for the purposes of assaulting girls and women.
HHS’s proposal would restore the federal definition of gender so that it refers to either a male or a female — no exceptions — and based solely on the individual’s genital makeup.
“Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth,” the memo reportedly reads. “The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.”
