"Gender assignment at birth"

North Carolina passed a law requiring public restrooms or changing facilities "be designated for and only used by individuals based on their biological sex." The Justice Department, in turn, sued North Carolina, saying the law violates parts of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and amounts to sex discrimination. "Denying such access to transgender individuals, whose gender identity is different from their gender assignment at birth. . . violates federal law."

Ms Gupta uses an interesting and delicate choice of words: "gender assignment at birth." 

I thought about that. Who would have made that original gender assignment?  

Well, God did.

"God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them." Genesis 1: 27  It wasn't arbitrary. It wasn't open to negotiation. And there were and are only two options.

You think you can improve on the design of the Lord of the Universe? Doesn't He know us better than we know ourselves? You mess with your "gender assignment," you're messing with the Infinite Intelligence who knows you best--and loves you most.
