    FIRST ON FOX: A group of House Republicans is pressing Secretary of
    State Antony Blinken on the State Department's decision to allow
    Americans to apply for passports that list the holder's gender as "X,"
    saying the decision "makes a mockery of science."

    Rep. Lisa McClain, R-Mich., led a letter to Blinken with 12 of her GOP colleagues in response to his March announcement that the State
    Department "would begin to allow U.S. citizens to select ‘X’ as their gender marker" when applying for passports.

    "This is a deeply troubling decision for a variety of reasons," they
    wrote in the letter Thursday. "First, for an administration that claims
    to follow the science, it is interesting to see which aspects of
    science you choose to ignore. Men are men and women are women."

    The Republicans wrote that the "second troubling aspect" of Blinken’s announcement is that it changes the passport wording from "sex" — which
    the lawmakers said "is indisputable" — to "gender," which "only
    undermines the science further."


    I can see where a so called transgender person could have a lot of
    problems entering another country.
