Gender neutrality: a step too far?


Confusion is also going to be created more widely.

For example:
"Trans people will be permitted to change their sex on the next official census, despite warnings it could mean the statistics become `skewed"

"Guidance for the forthcoming survey in 2021 will give respondents the option to state their sex is `different from what is on your birth certificate`."

"It is feared the advice, which applies to both adults and children, could distort population data upon which the Government bases future policy." [This is an important point since the pattern of diseases is different in the two sexes and so are the needs for maternity services.]
