Why don't you leave this discussion to the adults?
This is coming from someone who claims to know science.
Whew. Thanks for the laugh. Carry on.
For example, a provider's persistent and intentional refusal to use a transgender individual's preferred name and pronoun and insistence on using those corresponding to the individual's sex assigned at birth constitutes illegal sex discrimination if such conduct is sufficiently serious to create a hostile environment. Similarly, a provider using derogatory language because an individual is an unmarried sexually active or pregnant woman constitutes illegal sex-based harassment if such conduct is sufficiently serious to create a hostile environment.
Gender dysphoria is a condition where a person experiences discomfort or distress because there's a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity. It's sometimes known as gender identity disorder (GID), gender incongruence or transgenderism.

Holy Frappin Xst!
I can't believe what i'm hearing, Pronouns my as*...
So get me get this straight, You're a Dr. You have to be Clinically SANE to be a Doctor, i presume correct? So then This Clinically SANE Dr. gets a Patient who thinks he's a Man, so this (Male) Dr. has to pretend he's a Woman? in order to treat the patient and not get sued? WTF? Am i getting this right?
So then what if the Patient thinks it's a Giant Panda Bear, must the Dr. too pretend to be a Giant Panda Bear?
This to me sounds like it could turn into a counter lawsuit if the Dr. was sued over Pronouns.
Also... For a Doctor who is Clinically SANE, it would be INSANE to force him/her to become what the PATIENT is would it not? It would be Insane. Therefore making in essence the Dr. Insane and unfit to Practice Medicine.
This is just wrong on so many levels.
