For those interested in health, here’s a chance to learn of the latest science. An organization has announced enormous news.
As stated by WHO on the world wide web:
[S]ex is not limited to male or female.
One might have expected lesser discoveries by 2022. But apparently, it’s taken multiple millennia on the other side of Noah for experts to understand that sex doesn’t come in twos — at least not where humans are concerned.
Better late than never.
Our swift redoing of sexual science seems similar to recent technological advances made in an eye’s relative blink: For thousands of years, the planet was comparatively primitive. Then all of a sudden, the industrial revolution, the internet and GPS. Likewise, there were girls and boys for eons…then pow — a biological-breakthrough Big Bang.
The World Health Organization doesn’t state the science to which it’s succumbed, but it does talk of sexual politics:
The Gender Mainstreaming for Health Managers: a Practical Approach manual addresses how gender norms, roles and relations affect health-related behaviours and outcomes as well as health sector responses. At the same time, it recognizes that gender inequality is a cross-cutting determinant of health that operates in conjunction with other forms of discrimination based on factors such as age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity or place of origin and sexual orientation. The manual provides a basis for addressing other forms of health-related discrimination.
The guide was first released in 2011; WHO is “updating it in light of new scientific evidence and conceptual progress on gender, health and development.”
Evidence that demands a verdict:
The review…will build on the extensive work already featured in the manual. It will focus on:
- Updating key concepts around gender
- Highlighting and expanding on the concept of intersectionality, which looks at how gender power dynamics interact with other hierarchies of privilege or disadvantage, resulting in inequality and differential health outcomes for different people
Some of the “intersecting factors”:
- socioeconomic status
- geographical location
- disability status
- migration status
- gender identity and expression
- sexual orientation
- political situation
As relayed by the release, WHO is “going beyond binary approaches to gender and health.” The purpose: “[t]o recognize gender and sexual diversity, or the concepts that gender identity exists on a continuum and that sex is not limited to male or female.”
For the sake of modernity, WHO will introduce “new gender, equity and human rights frameworks and tools to further support capacity building around these concepts and the integration of their approaches….”
And the group isn’t going it alone. It’s teamed with the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health.
Much of the Earth is turning over a new leaf. As of this moment, those who insist only men and women are born are understood to be pernicious purveyors of violence. Of course, that distinction must also apply to everyone who lived before — after all, such a thing as “nonbinary” didn’t penetrate the American lexicon until mere historical minutes ago.
But whatever was said prior to today, to say anything other than what’s being said now…is unheard of.
A Supreme Court justice is aware:
A Berkley law professor is, too:
With all due respect to the World Health Organization, it’s a little late. WHO has only now discovered that there are more than two sexes, while others have reached that realization and grandly gone further:
