BLOGEverything We Thought We Knew About Gender and Sex is Backwards

“Make no mistake, this is no reinterpretation of terms. It is an entire rewrite of law, and that is, constitutionally, the purview of congress, not the President of the United States. Texas will continue to stand up against President Obama and his agencies whenever and wherever the attempt to circumvent the rule of law and ignore the voice of the people.” 

 

–Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton
after filing suit against the Obama Administration. 


A federal court in Texas dealt a blow to President Obama’s decree that public schools open their locker rooms and shower areas to both sexes or face the loss of federal funding. U.S. District Court Judge Reed O'Connor issued a nationwide injunction stopping the enforcement of the mandate. The Court’s ruling states that the text of Title IX regarding the definition of sex is unambiguous—Congress intended it to refer to the biological differences between males and females.

A report released last week calls into question many of the assumptions that have been used to justify both same sex marriage and policies that open locker rooms and shower areas to both sexes. “Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences,” considered more than 200 peer reviewed studies on sexuality and genders. It was written by Dr. Paul McHugh of John’s Hopkins Hospital – who pioneered sex reassignment surgery and ultimately ended the practice at the hospital because of the harm it was doing to patients.
