    Could we get something that is "stupidity-neutral"? I no longer dare to hope for intelligence (especially from a blue state), but could you, at least, offer the public something that lacks stupidity?

    What's between a person's legs isn't a 'suggestion'. I understand that some people feel they were born into the wrong body, and some people think they're space aliens. At any given time, there's thousands of people who think they're Jesus Christ. Yet only 1 of those 3 examples of identity disorders is 'normal'. Why?

    Taking this to the max, I know there are people who make specific effort to raise children in a environment that tries to not influence their mental development towards any gender.


    That kind of thing does make me wonder to what degree gender is formed by nurture as opposed to nature.
    Gender is formed during week 7 of pregnancy. Identity disorders can occur at various stages of development, and for a host of various reasons.

    How exactly does this strengthen our diversity?

    Judging from the Californian perspective, why should the State be involved in telling a parent which gender their child is?
    They never were. It was the parents decision to check Male or Female on their child's birth certificate.

    As gender is a social construct, it's none of their business. Their sex however is easily discernible, except of course in the cases of the intersexed.
    If current trends continue, I can see a time when race, name, and weight are removed from birth certificates as well.

    Race- who are we to tell a child what race they are? Race is a social construct.
    Name- shouldn't children get to name themselves? Names are a social construct.
    Weight- what if a child is born weighing 10 pounds? Might they develop body issues from knowing they were a chubby baby? Surely we must remove Weight, as ideals of beauty are a social construct.

    Your descriptions sound like they're from the 1800's manc. My nieces and nephews both run around, play outside, throw stuff, climb things, etc.

    Where are these girls being pushed into "demure indoors life", in 2018? Certainly not in the 1st world.

Much harder to discriminate if there is no such thing as men and women. Seriously. If a "woman" files a discrimination case and it is later found that her birth certificate doesn't show she is a woman, then how can there be discrimination?
    Progressives never think ahead.

    Nonsense. Leftists are the biggest control freaks I can imagine. They tried to burn down campuses of higher learning because someone they didn't like was speaking. I can tell what's in their pants without asking; a diaper.

    Re: Genderless Babies- Good Thing or Bad?

    This is just stupid. There are 2 sexes, male and female. Occasionally we have some kind of physical abnormality but that is physical, not mental. The rest are mental problems. I am sorry if this hurts the feelings of some people but this is getting out of hand. Now people want sexless birth certificates? Well why have raceless birth certificates, IDs etc not been done? I mean surely if gender doesn't exist before a certain age, neither does race, species or sex. That is how ridiculous this whole thing has gotten.

    I am so sick of this stupidity. This is coming from the same place that stupid notion of children's self esteem being so important. And just now those same idiots have figured out it's self discipline that kids need to be taught, not how great they are and how fair everything in life is. This after creating a generation of whiny self important douchebags who feel threatened, assaulted and raped by words and don't know how to cope with life on any level.

    Yes this is just stupid, period.

    Hey. it's California. Don't they castrate males at birth out there? Most of the California males I've met seem to be neutered; or maybe the pot makes them so docile.
