    And so gender, trans or otherwise, shouldn't matter legally.

    And there is the problem.

    Sex has a consistent and absolute definition. One is either male or female based on immutable and observable biological traits.

    “Gender” does not. Those who substitute gender for sex cannot consistently or objectively distinguish who is male and who is female based on the definitions that they try to use.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    We'll define gender objectively as soon as you define "woman" objectively.
    Woman. An adult human, who is biologically female. It's easy, and completely clear, if you use biological sex rather than Politically-Correct “gender” as the basis for the definition.

    You're trying to replace it with a dysfunctional social construct based on Politically-Correct madness. There's no way for that to end well.

    The practical evidence deviates from the binary biological definition.

    You're using a word to define itself. That's not particularly objective.

    The same goes for transmen; they should be treated as men.
    Nah, I'd rather have both treated as women.
