CNN Claims Thereâ€™s No Way To Tell If A Baby Is A Boy Or A Girl

CNN reported Tuesday â€œitâ€™s not possible to know a personâ€™s gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.â€

The article, which highlighted executive orders from South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem that bar male athletes from competition in womenâ€™s sports without an enforcement mechanism, is advertised by the network as â€œnewsâ€ written by CNN breaking news reporter Devan Cole, rather than opinion.
â€œThough the two executive orders signed by Noem do not explicitly mention transgender athletes, they reference the supposed harms of the participation of â€˜malesâ€™ in womenâ€™s athletics,â€ Cole wrote, describing them as â€œan echo of the transphobic claim, cited in other similar legislative initiatives, that transgender women are not women.â€
The orders, Cole continued, â€œalso reference â€˜biological sex,â€™ a disputed term that refers to the sex as listed on studentsâ€™ original birth certificates.â€
Male and female distinctions then, according to CNN, are a mirage of the imagination.
