A man can claim he is a woman and we are required to believe him, or at least act as if we do, to be politically correct, perhaps even to be law-abiding.
If that is so, why aren't we required to believe Rachel Dolezal is a black woman if she self-identifies as such? Or that Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a Native American, because she claims to be one?
I went to high school with an odd-looking kid who lived with several minor but quite visible birth defects. He explained them by claiming good-naturedly he was from Mars. Perhaps we should have taken him seriously?
