"Self-ID has already been the law in California since 2018. In that state, anyone can obtain a new birth certificate with the opposite sex marked as their own. The law does not require input from any physician, or any surgical or hormonal changes to the person's body.

Self-ID means that any person (man or woman) can simply declare himself or herself to be a member of the opposite sex and to have the government validate that .. on demand. No one, anywhere in the world, has properly grappled with the implications of this. Most of the people pushing back globally are politically left-leaning feminists, and the vast majority of people (regardless of political orientation) agree with us.

Feminists have argued for years that allowing anyone to "self-identify" as any gender will result in men forcing themselves into women's spaces. This is already happening in the U.S. at the state level. Many states allow men to be housed in women's prisons on the basis of their self-declared "female gender identity." California's SB 132 was enacted in 2020 and went into effect in January 2021. Washington state does the same thing by way of administrative policy. New Jersey implemented a similar policy through a settlement agreement with the ACLU."
