New England Journal Medicine wants sex removed from birth certificates

Many people, even in the medical establishment, are now seen to be caving in to the relentness attacks on scientific paradigms by a group of radical American lawfirms. Moderate thinking is being removed from scientific research and education. The latest example is the once prestigious and reliable New England Medical Journal, which published an article declaring biological sex irrelevant. We read how the mere word “biological sex” is treated as if it were “offensive” to 0.2% of the population, a fringe group of deeply conflicted individuals who label themselves as “transgender” forefront activists. By removing the word ‘anatomical sex’ from birth certificates, the mental confusion then seems to be less conflicted. Biological sex, so society is increasingly led to believe, would be merely “an option”.

In the latest issue of the NEMJ, two doctors and a lawyer have written that it’s time to do away with putting a newborn baby’s biological sex — as demonstrated by its external genitalia — on birth certificates.  

The article is behind a paywall, but the summary is there for all to see:

“Sex designations on birth certificates offer no clinical utility, and they can be harmful for intersex and transgender people. Moving such designations below the line of demarcation wouldn’t compromise the birth certificate’s public health function but could avoid harm.”

First, let’s meet the authors.  Vadim Shteyler is a clinical assistant professor of medicine at Brown University.  He’s a hospitalist, which means he’s a regular internal medicine doctor who doesn’t have an office practice but works only in a hospital.

Jessica A. Clarke is a law professor at Vanderbilt Law School.  “She studies constitutional and statutory guarantees of non-discrimination based on traits such as race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion and disability.”

(Editor’s note: sexual orientation, religion, and feelings of identity, are not traits but merely feelings, opinions and/or convictions, subject to change over time.)

Eli Y. Adashi is the former dean of medicine and biological sciences at Brown University.  His clinical specialty is gynecology.

As you can see, these people are not fringe crackpots.  They are associated with reputable institutions.  They’re getting published in the New England Medical Journal, one of the most prestigious medical magazines in the world.  They can be said to represent the mainstream of American medical thinking and its intersection with legal principles.

And from that pinnacle of professionalism, they’re telling us that whether a child is a boy or a girl is irrelevant for purposes of a birth certificate.  

And why do they say that?  Because a vanishingly small percentage of the population has a mental illness that leads those sad people to believe they’re in the wrong body.

There is no study supporting the magical “transgender” theory.  A man is as much ‘truly a woman’ as he is ‘truly Napoleon’ or ‘truly the Messiah’ , so science has proved since 2019, even though it may feel that way (the latter is called the “Messiah delusion”). It is a purely psychological problem, often associated with severe childhood trauma, especially in the form of absentee or remote fathers and problematic mothers.  Accepting as true person’s claim that he is really a member of the opposite sex is precisely the same as accepting as true an emaciated anorectic’s claim that he/she is morbidly obese — and offering him/her diet pills and stomach-stapling. In 20% of the cases, anorectic indivuals die directly from their disorder; in 35% of the cases of gender confusion the figures are up to 35%. It is the highest mortality rate of all software issues in psychiatry. Up to 98% get over it as long as you do not affirm the delusional thinking but support the hardware-based normal identity feelings which also always coexist. It is these figures that the radical lawfirms refuse to publish.

Reality is not a construct.  We can quibble about our approaches to reality, but the real world exists.  Gravity is a thing, and even if you tell yourself you’re a bird, when you step off that roof and flap your arms, you’re not going anywhere but down.

When a society abandons reality — when it pretends the genetic coding that dictates our body’s sex is meaningless — then society is headed for a disastrous landing.  Mentally ill men who think they’re women do not need to go to a gynecologist because they do not have a uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or any of the other organs associated with a female animal’s prime function, which is to incubate babies. There is no scientific evidence indicating that gender confusion has any physical causes. It is purely a software issue, superimposed on other mental problems.

Once doctors start playing along with these anti-science and anti-reality fantasies, these same doctors lose the trust of the 95% or so of Americans who inhabit a fact-based world in which human animals with penises are boys and human animals with vaginas are girls.  What sane person would trust a doctor who can’t tell the two apart and who claims that your legs are reality but the organ between them merely is a social construct in need of some necessary surgery?

Strange that radical activists and feminists claim that sex is not all that important, and yet those very same activists explode with rage when you call a so-called “transgender” by the wrong pronoun. All of a sudden, sex becomes extremely important, although at other moments they proclaim the opposite.

The same applies for radical-gay activists who are hell-bent on avoiding intimacy with the opposite sex. So, for them, sex is obviously relevant. And yet when they are not so horny, they will insist that someone’s gender is actually neither here nor there.

It is therefore fair to say that removing the word ‘sex’ from birth certificates or any other document or TV-show, is evidence of a mixed-up mind. Our children have a right to be protected from this train of thought, and from professionals who spread the delusional thinking as though it were normal.
