Prevent discrimination, promote inclusion for transgender Arizonans

To: Rep. Gutierrez, Rep. Mathis

From: A constituent in Tucson, AZ

June 8

This bill aims to establish a standardized definition of "biological sex" based solely on factors present at birth, disregarding an individual's gender identity or any changes later in life. Such policies create significant barriers for transgender and non-binary individuals seeking to update identity documents to accurately reflect their lived reality. Requiring invasive medical procedures or adhering rigidly to sex assigned at birth denies the basic human dignity and self-determination of these community members. A more compassionate approach would be to provide straightforward pathways for transgender individuals to obtain congruent identification without undue obstacles or discrimination. I urge you to consider the negative impacts this legislation could have and explore more inclusive solutions that respect all Arizonans equally.
