Selected quotes

In order to prevent unjust discrimination, maintain safety, protect privacy, and ensure fairness, the following terms have the definitions ascribed in this section: [...](g) "Female," when this term is used in reference to a natural person, means an individual who has, had, will have through the course of normal development, or would have, but for a developmental anomaly, genetic anomaly, or accident, the reproductive system that at some point produces ova. (h) "Male," when this term is used in reference to a natural person, means an individual who has, had, will have through the course of normal development, or would have, but for a developmental anomaly, genetic anomaly, or accident, the reproductive system that at some point produces sperm.

There are only two (2) sexes, and every individual is either male or female. "Sex" does not include gender identity or other terms intended to convey a person's subjective sense of self. "Gender identity" and other such subjective terms may not be used as synonyms or substitutes for "sex." (3) Persons with "DSD conditions," sometimes referred to as "differences in sex development," "disorders of sex development," or "intersex conditions," are not members of a third sex. Persons with a congenital and medically verifiable DSD diagnosis must be accommodated consistent with state and federal law.
