F.V. v. Armstrong @LambdaLegal (USA)

A man is suing the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare because the department will not change his birth certificate to reflect that he know identifies as “female.” Lambda Legal, which used to represent gay people, asserts, among other claims, that it violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution for Idaho to refuse to change his birth certificate to reflect the fictional view that he is female. Lambda also asserts that “transgender people are a discrete and insular group and lack the political power to protect their rights through the legislative process.” Given that the definition of gender identity pushed by Lambda and others is wholly subjective – thus allowing anyone to claim membership – and the speed with which Lambda has gotten states to adopt this ridiculous legislation, the bald assertions in the complaint are laughable, at best.
