The American Medical Association (AMA) has recommended that the US government stop including the designation of male or female on birth certificates. The AMA argues that such classification would subject Americans who do not identify with their sex at birth to “confusion, possible discrimination, harassment, and violence whenever their birth certificate is requested.” The American College of Pediatricians accused the AMA of “denying science.” Another critic said that health care is being transformed into a “science-devoid cesspool of social justice.” -GEG

The American Medical Agency (AMA) has recommended that the U.S. government stop including the designation of gender in birth certificates. Presently, people are classified as “male” or “female” in the public portion of their certificates.

AMA has argued that such classification would subject Americans who do not identify with the sex assigned at their birth to “confusion, possible discrimination, harassment, and violence whenever their birth certificate is requested.” The AMA made the observation in a report published by its LGBTQ Advisory Committee in June.

Birth certificates are not public documents since they have personal information. However, they are required for basic needs such as acquiring a driver’s license or passport. They are also needed for other purposes, such as registering to a school, obtaining a marriage certificate, accessing personal medical records, and employment.

According to the AMA, access to the sex identifier section of a birth certificate should be restricted to just the individual and his or her physician.

“Assigning sex using a binary variable and placing it on the public portion of the birth certificate perpetuates a view that it is immutable and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity. Participation by the medical profession and the government in assigning sex is often used as evidence supporting this binary view,” the AMA report said.

I think some parts of the world have gone crazy!!!!!! Biology tells us that at birth you are either male or female. I don’t understand why anyone, especially a doctor would want to change that.

God is not the author of confusion! This line of thinking proves mental incompetence, defiles the natural design of humanity and if people do not resist insanity, it WILL become normalized! Your country is being dismantled by psychopaths and queers while forced medication in the food and water supply keep people unresponsive to the obvious remedy’s to solve this take over of our common sense government. If people remain unresponsive to tyranny, consider them dead.

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, gender dysphoria prevalence accounts for 0.005-0.014% of the population for biological males and 0.002-0.003% for biological females. In both Japan and Poland, the prevalence of gender dysphoria is higher in biological females. The AMA is allowing the tail to wag the dog, imo. 99% of us are not confused. What we need to do is to be kind, supportive and accepting of people dealing with this issue, not change the gender frame of reference 99% of us use.
