Yet More Confusion About Transgenderism: The NYT "Which Box Do You Check?"

This is extremely tedious by this point.
No sense in explaining it all yet again.
Everything in there can basically be cleared up just by minding the distinction between sex (i.e. the biological kinds male and female) and gender (i.e. the behavioral categories masculine and feminine (and, if you like, androgynous)).
Though there are some real issues buried in there somewhere, mostly it's all just an exercise in pretending that how one feels, how one dresses, and the demeanor one chooses to adopt can change the physical facts about one's sex.
Mostly, I remain astonished at how such simple confusions--when backed by the cultural power of political correctness--can wreak such seismic havoc.
