This is absolutely bizarre and provides yet another glaring example of why this legislation is so wrong and out of line. THey will no longer use traditional Male and Female categories. Oh Really??

The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee’s health care legislation will give the Health and Human Services secretary the authority to develop “standards of measuring gender” -- as opposed to using the traditional "male" and "female" categories -- in a database of all who apply or participate in government-run or government-supported health care plans.

This will provide an unlocked revolving door into your homes and private lives.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is required by the proposed law -- The Affordable Health Choices Act,which was voted out of committee on July 15 -- to create a database within one year of the law’s enactment that will include detailed information about those who sign up for government-run or supported health care programs, including their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, language and disabilities.

For the Collection of gender data this crazy legislation calls for the development of new standards for defining gender. Our politicians are clearly off their rockers!!!

The language is found on page 410 and 411 of the 615 document under SEC. 332: Understanding Health Disparities: Data Collection and Analysis.

According to the WHO we have this.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “sex” refers to the biological and physiological characteristics that define men and women. “Gender” refers to the socially constructed roles, behaviors, activities, and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for men and women.

Sounds like big brother wants to know a little more about your personal life so that they can pigeon hole you into one of their special categories based more on your behavior rather than your anatomy.

They are probably trying to figure out how to classify all the transexuals. I mean come on, when some one has a sex change, are they what they were, or are?

Then there are hermaphrodites....

That reminds me of an old rumor about Jamie Lee Curtis....

Who knows when the large spinning wheel of bureaucracy will ever stop.
