From Campus Reform:

A professor from Temple University recently told students during a talk at the University of Virginia that sex markers are “poor proxies” because “maleness and femaleness are characteristics that we share with a lot of other people.”

Associate Professor of Politics Heath Fogg Davis made the remarks during a presentation Friday entitled “Male or Female? A Liberal Argument Against Sex-Marked Identity Documents,” which was sponsored by UVA’s Department of Politics and the “Women, Gender and Sexuality Bernard Mayes LGBTQ Lecture Series.”
