Trump Administration’s Definition of “Gender” Is Not Science | Psychology Today:

On Sunday, The New York Times reported that the Trump administration plans to define “gender” based on people’s external genitalia, as part of their larger efforts to roll back protections for transgender Americans. They say they plan to implement a definition of gender “grounded in science.” As a physician who studies gender, I can tell you this is ludicrous. There is no scientific definition of gender.
