A four- year degree is something to be proud of.  Typically these people are intelligent and can understand the basic concept of gender. However, a recent poll showed that three out of four college-educated Democrats believe that gender is based on what the person themselves say they are.  No matter what genetics and genitalia reveal.

The Pew Research Center conducted a survey from August-to-September. A survey of 4,573 people based on the phrase: “sex assigned at birth.”  This phrase was created by transgender activists to go against what we have known for, well, forever.  The questions the survey asked was:

Which statement comes closer to your views, even if neither is exactly right?

Whether someone is a man or a woman is determined by the sex they were assigned at birth

Someone can be a man or a woman even if that is different from the sex they were assigned at birth

According to Pew’s summary:

The survey … finds that Democrats with a bachelor’s degree or more education are more likely than other Democrats to say a person’s gender can be different from the sex they were assigned at birth. About three-quarters (77%) of Democrats with a bachelor’s degree or more say this, compared with 60% of Democrats with some college and 57% of those with a high school diploma or less. No such [education] divide exists among Republicans.

Most African-Americans and a large percentage of Latinos do not think that gender determination is a guess. According to Pew:

Democrats’ views also differ by race and ethnicity. Some 55% of black Democrats and 41% of Hispanic Democrats say a person’s gender is determined by their sex assigned at birth, a view shared by just 24% of white Democrats.

Republicans, however, agree with the determination bestowed by physicians and parents. The survey says:

Eight-in-ten Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say that whether someone is a man or a woman is determined by the sex they were assigned at birth [but] most Democrats and Democratic leaners (64%) take the opposite view and say a person’s gender can be different from the sex they were assigned at birth.

However, the Pew results may be unrepresentative of reality, because few Americans are familiar with the “sex assigned at birth.” This reference is based on a person who identifies with the opposite sex of which their genitalia, genes, and biology all dictate.
