Hill GOPers Push Vaccine Exemptions as Mandate Protests Mount

Congressional Republicans are pushing proposals to exempt millions of American workers who object to President Joe Biden’s mandatory CCP virus vaccination orders and similar decrees by employers, which are prompting widespread protests and costing many workers their jobs. Biden has ordered all federal military and civilian employees to be vaccinated, as well as those employed by federal contractors and entities receiving federal support in connection with the government’s many virus recovery programs. A new federal regulation is also being prepared requiring all private companies with 100 or more employees to make vaccination a condition of employment. The regulation is to be enforced by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). Biden’s mandate and similar ones by other officials are sparking protests around the country. Multiple cities including Chicago, Denver, Seattle and New York have also ordered employees to get vaccinated.

Gender “X”: US Issues First Passport For People Who Don’t Identify As Male Or Female

Gender “X”: US Issues First Passport For People Who Don’t Identify As Male Or Female Americans who don’t identify as male or female can finally rejoice, after the United States has issued its first passport with an “X” gender designation. Photo illustration by Clarice Bajkowski/The 19th According to a Wednesday statement by the State Department, the “X” designation will likely be offered on a broad basis next year, according to AP. The U.S. special diplomatic envoy for LGBTQ rights, Jessica Stern, called the moves historic and celebratory, saying they bring the government documents in line with the “lived reality” that there is a wider spectrum of human sex characteristics than is reflected in the previous two designations. -AP “When a person obtains identity documents that reflect their true identity, they live with greater dignity and respect,” said Stern, who added that her office planned to encourage other nations to embrace the same changes. “We see this as a way of affirming and uplifting the human rights of trans and intersex and gender-nonconforming and nonbinary people everywhere,” she said. While the state department has declined to reveal who received the “X” passport, some suspect it may be Dana Zzyym, an ‘intersex Colorado resident’ who took the State Department  to court in 2015. Zzymm (pronounced Zimm), was denied a passport after refusing to check male or female on an application – instead writing “intersex” above the boxes marked “M” and “F” – and requested an “X” gender designation in a separate letter. Zzyym was born with ambiguous physical sexual characteristics but was raised as a boy and underwent several surgeries that failed to make Zzyym appear fully male, according to court filings. Zzyym served in the Navy as a male but later came to identify as intersex while working and studying at
