Social Security Now Allowing People To Choose Their Own Gender, No Questions Asked

https://dailycaller.com/

The Social Security Administration will allow people to self-select their sex on social security documents without providing legal or medical documents to verify their sex, according to a Wednesday announcement.

The agency will accept individuals’ self-identification regardless of whether it matches their other documents and will supply Social Security cards accordingly, the agency announced. The move comes amid a push from the Biden administration to facilitate gender transitions and help transgender people change their sex on government records more easily.

“The Social Security Administration’s Equity Action Plan includes a commitment to decrease administrative burdens and ensure people who identify as gender diverse or transgender have options in the Social Security Number card application process,” Acting Commissioner Kijakazi said in the press release. “This new policy allows people to self-select their sex in our records without needing to provide documentation of their sex designation.”

The agency is also exploring an “X” sex designation for nonbinary people, according to the announcement.

President Joe Biden announced a host of initiatives aimed at facilitating gender transitions through various agencies of the federal government in March, which included pushes for the Transportation Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security to stop considering sex in security.

The Social Security Administration did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
