“SECTION 1. Section 92A of chapter 272 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2014 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting after the word “sex”, in line 9, the following words:- , gender identity.” The bill can be read here (there’s nothing exciting).

First, we redefined science to mean only what is ‘factual.’ Now we’re discriminating among those facts (bigots!) to create the definition, since sex has no inherent purpose.

“…it is possible to attain knowledge which is very useful in life, and that, *instead* of that speculative philosophy which is taught in the schools, we may find a practical philosophy by means of which, knowing the force and action of fire, water, air, the stars, heavens and all other bodies that environ us, as distinctly as we know the different crafts of our artisans, we can in the same way employ them in all those uses to which they are adapted, and thus render ourselves the masters and possessors of nature.” René Descartes.” Discours De La Methode (1637).
