Someone sent me a link to bill H.R.2796 a few days ago and I read it because I’m a bit nerdy like that. It is actually a very sensible and not at all scary proposition.
Yes, I read it too. Not scary at all; in fact, quite common sensical. But if people like Parker Molloy are TOLD it is scary by a trusted source, then they assume they’re being told the truth. Even if they’re not.
The bill does propose to prohibit the word ‘sex’ or ‘gender’ from being interpreted to mean ‘gender identity, under the law and rightfully so.
Correct. It removes ambiguity that the prior Administrator attempted to use in an authoritarian fashion to circumvent the Constitutional requirement that Congress be the one who writes laws.
Just because a particular Congress might write laws we might not like, or fail to write a law we think we need, is no reason to do an end-around the Constitution.
It is simple really; sex is objectively definable; gender is not, unless you tie it to sex or use it as a linguistic tool; it is an abstract and therefore it is not measurable by any law.
Quite right. As I’ve posted elsewhere, if one is in doubt about what sex they are, a look between the legs should suffice to end all doubt. Gender identity, OTOH, is all about one’s perception of themselves, is thus abstract, and to make matters worse, appears to be somewhat fluid during the term of many people’s lives. Thus, it is impossible to legislate without creating a minefield.
