The Equality Act and the End of ‘Females’

Notably, the Equality Act’s definition makes no mention of what sex actually is: the unchangeable reality that a person is either “male” or “female” (intersex conditions are disorders of sexual development, not a different sex). Only females go through female puberty, get pregnant, give birth and go through menopause. That’s biology, and no one can self-define into or out of a biological reality.

For the law to pretend otherwise is ludicrous.

But under the Equality Act, females (and males) are no more. To be a “woman” is to be a “Genderbread Person,” a jumble of parts, feelings, desires and stereotypes. But not to “be” female.

Proponents of the Equality Act say it simply extends the logic of the Supreme Court‘s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, which held that Title VII’s prohibition of discrimination “because of…sex” also prohibits discrimination because of sexual orientation and transgender status. That’s a deceptive argument. The Bostock Court’s premise in interpreting Title VII was that “‘sex’…refer[s] only to biological distinctions between male and female” and, “but for” the “sex” of each plaintiff, there would have been no discrimination.
