New WHO gender guidance dismisses basic biology!

New WHO gender guidance dismisses basic biology!

Sex is 'not limited' to being male or female, the World Health Organization (WHO) will say in new guidance. 

The WHO said it was 'going beyond' the use of binary terms to 'recognise gender and sexual diversity'.  

The change will be to gender guidance originally published in 2011 and is used by public health officials.

WHO said its guidance would go 'beyond non-binary approaches to gender and health to recognise gender and sexual diversity or the concepts that gender identity exists on a continuum and that sex is not limited to male or female'.

The UK donated about £114million to the WHO in 2020-2021, and is listed as the organisation's top voluntary funding contributor for that year. 

The WHO guidance is for public health managers and in the UK these experts generally work in local government but some are also employed by the NHS and Government. 

They can take on a wide variety of responsibilities, such as emergency planning for events like heatwaves or pandemics, or public health messaging like stop smoking campaigns.

The WHO's guidance review is currently in a gathering feedback stage, with the final version due to be rolled out sometime next month.
