If I sent my children to public school in Manhattan, I’d have some serous reservations about letting the government handle their science requirement… Because these bureaucrats have a seriously loose grasp on basic biology.
The Daily Wire reports that the state is going to add a new option for birth certificates as it applies to gender:
A third gender option for birth certificates is on track to hit liberal New York City.
Bucking the reality that gender is intrinsically tied to sex, a new proposal offers a non-binary gender option, designated as “X,” to appear on NYC birth certificates.
“Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said the new category of ‘X’ would be available through the proposal, which is expected to be introduced by Johnson on Thursday with public hearings to be held later this month,” reports The Associated Press.
So much for science. New York already had an option for “undetermined,” but the “X” proposal is for “non-binary” adults who want to change their birth certificates. I guess the seven people in the state of New York to whom that applies will be happy to hear this.
As New York gets closer to this repudiation of basic biological facts, they are growing more and more similar to my home state of California which offers a non-binary gender option on birth certificates. (Oregon and Washington also have the nefarious distinction of providing this option.) Here’s more from the Daily Wire:
The new proposal would not require gender reassignment surgery nor an affidavit or affirmation from a medical or mental health professional saying the New Yorker’s “gender identity is more accurately reflected by changing the gender designation,” as past legislation has, noted the AP. This requirement would be removed, and the only thing a person would have to do is submit their own affidavit confirming their so-called “gender identity.”
So, this option is going to be used by people who have precisely zero responsibility to prove that they have a need to make the change. But that’s the thing, isn’t it? There is NO ONE who has a real need to check that box.
And the government expects us to believe this “willy nilly” system simply won’t be abused?
This is just the latest attempt by radical liberals to erase gender from modern consciousness.
