Gender is complicated.
As nurses many of us have cared for people who don't fit the morphology of one gender.
As a young SNA I gave a bath to a grandmother who had a penis. I was a bit surprised but ignored it except to wash and dry her entire body. My main concern at that time was something new to me then. Making an occupied bed.
No matter which gender a person identifies with all people deserve the same rights as citizens. To some their gender is a matter of privacy or shame.
