    ‘ … a simple choice between male and female is now “considered to be irrelevant, unacceptable and intrusive, particularly to trans participants, due to asking about sex rather than gender.”’

    The collection of vital statistics might make some bad-tempered men and morose teens very upset, which is just “unacceptable.” So, maybe we had better not do it?

    This is exactly where we said this was going and here we are. A government, which has already and without question accepted that sex is a mutable characteristic, is trying to decide whether it’s even necessary or important to collect data about females and males.

    If sex has been officially rendered “irrelevant,” the lives of girls and women have been rendered irrelevant. Officially.

    ‘…a simple choice between male and female…’

    Nobody gave me that choice. How about the rest of you?

      And they call themselves non-binary. Those who acknowledge biological reality are the promoters of the binary according to trans cultists. If there are just two choices, that is a binary choice. It is so irritating that they have the gall to claim the label non-binary, yeah, like hell.

    Ugh. Christ. On the census, just have check boxes for biological sex/sex assigned at birth, one for intersex, and ones for gender identity. Problem solved. Or is that “too intrusive?” Doctors & law enforcement need to know a person’s biological sex for reasons we all know & I don’t need to explain. This is all so obnoxious.
