At the Iowa Capitol for a public hearing on Gov. Kim Reynolds’ bill to legally define gendered terms like “man” and “woman,” Keenan Crow of One Iowa explains what the bill would do and the consequences for an untold number of existing Iowa laws.

Another component of the bill would require transgender Iowans to have their sex assigned at birth listed on their birth certificates. An earlier version required the same designation on driver’s licenses, but the bill was amended to remove this in its subcommittee.

Crow explained how interfering with government documents can affect trans people’s ability to get passports and how drivers’ licenses can still be affected if the legislation passes.

The narrow definitions of gendered terms in the bill defines trans and nonbinary people out of existence. Crow said that’s the bill’s purpose, and it won’t protect cisgender women but endanger them, too.
