I have seen this story about NYC making gender a matter of personal choice on several different weblogs now. It seems ike it’s a setup for some serious internal clashes within the MAL. What happens to affirmative action and gender quotas if gender is a personal choice? Why not switch genders to get women / minority status? It seems especially attractive if only NYC recognizes the change. I can’t wait for the rhetorical twists that will be required.
