It seems like an obvious question that shouldn’t have to be asked of a new mother after giving birth, but leave it to the liberal-run state of New York to deem something seemingly ridiculous as an important inquiry on an official document.
According to the New York Post, a city Health Department application for new parents requesting birth certificates asks the “woman giving birth” if she’s male or female, and it’s not a typo. The gender identification can be found on the form mixed in with all the standard questions — mother’s maiden name, mother’s legal name, mother’s Social Security number — but this may be the most difficult field to complete out of them all.
Considering gender identity can certainly be confusing for some, the state has made the question on the birth certificate request very clear and easy to follow, providing a convenient check box and asks the question in capital letters. “What is your DATE OF BIRTH, current AGE and SEX?” the form asks in the section clearly marked “Mother/Parent (Woman Giving Birth).”
What is subsequently clear from this form is that the morality of America is in the tank if so many citizens are so separated from God-given gender roles, that a government document has been adjusted to accommodate it.
But liberals are coming to the defense and hailing it as a stride in the right direction of acceptance of a new America, which includes all manner of differences in lifestyles. “To be clear, it is possible for a person who has given birth to a child to identify as male,” said Susan Sommer, a lawyer for Lambda Legal, an advocacy group for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people.
Sommer sympathizes with individuals caught in the interim between male and female, since the process of changing identity from how you were born can be a lengthy one, and shouldn’t impede someone from procreating while en route to becoming the opposite sex. She explained that given various transgender stages, there is room for the person who gives birth to check the male box.
To be fair, the “father” is also asked the same gender question with identical check box choices, just sans the “giving birth” notation in that particular section. If determining who is father and who is mother in a gender-confused relationship isn’t mind-boggling enough, let’s not forget that this is being asked after a baby has been brought into this world to be raised by the sexually ambiguous duo, inevitably leading to a lot of confusion in the child.
