Sex is not a spectrum.

I mean you can be factually wrong if you want to, but it doesn't change the reality

Eta since my og was removed: Nothing on its own, as technically with transitioning trans people are their biological sex. By definition, it is based off several components: chromosomes, gonads, hormones, genitals, and secondary sex characteristics. With hrt and surgeries, they eventually fall into those categories. However, with the lack of description in the law it allows it to be interpreted by who ever is using it at the moment. It also further erases intersex people, who do not fall directly into male or female, are the ones actually receiving genital mutilations as young children

Dude, XX and XY are the norm, sure there are exceptions, however, are rare (0.5%-1.7%), so considering most individuals, sex is binary. And for the population of humans, sex is strongly bimodal: most people, no matter whether you define sex using chromosomes or morphology or gamete structure, fit into the classes of either “male” or “female.” You still need two different gamete’s to reproduce.

The population of New Hampshire is currently around ~1.389 million. 0.5% to 1.7% of 1.389 million people is 6,945 to 23,613 people. If the bill does not explicitly define "sex," then it leaves those people ambiguous under the law, meaning the law is open to interpretation by whoever is using it at the moment. While the numbers may work out to be statistically insignificant, those numbers are derived from actual people with actual lives. Do they not deserve to be accounted for?

Denying the existence of intersex people is the thing that has no basis in reality. You are conflating gender identity and sex

I've been for over six years, and have now had my diagnosis changed to "in remission"- I've never been better.
You, on the other hand, are denying factual science, as I am giving the actual definition. The definition of delusional, for your sake, "characterized by or holding false beliefs or judgments about external reality that are held despite incontrovertible evidence to the contrary", and hope that you seek the care you need. I can't imagine how hard it must be to live with such delusions, that a whole population doesn't exist to you because you only passed middle school biology.
