President Biden has ordered mandatory Covid vaccines or tests for all federal employees and now requires all federal workers and visitors to wear masks whether they are vaccinated or not. All federal employees who are not vaccinated must submit themselves to testing twice a week. All federal contractors must have proof of vaccination. These directives are coming when an increasing number of vaccinated people are coming down with the covid virus. The Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims that vaccinated people can carry as high a viral load as the unvaccinated. Vaccinated people may be at risk of infections in the future because their natural immune system is compromised, necessitating the need for ever more vaccinations. To show that politics is more important than science in this age dystopia, under pressure from the drug companies and the federal government, the Food and Drug Administration is expected to abandon its guidelines for drug testing and may approve some covid vaccinations sometime in September of 2021.

Meanwhile, the American Medical Association (AMA) has proposed ending the designation of sex on birth certificates. The AMA now claims that “Our American Medical Association will advocate for the removal of sex as a legal designation on the public portion of the birth certificate.” The proposal reads, adding that information on a person’s sex designation at birth will still be submitted to the authority and only used for medical, public health, and statistical purposes. According to the AMA, recording a person’s sex can result in “confusion, possible discrimination, harassment and violence” against those whose chosen gender identity or self-expression differs from their assigned sex at birth. “Assigning sex using a binary variable and placing it on the public portion of the birth certificate perpetuates a view that it is immutable and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity,” the AMA’s LGBTQ Advisory Committee argued. “Imposing such a categorization system risks stifling self-expression and self-identification and contributes to marginalization and minoritization.”
