How will Taiwan’s future look like?
Inaccurate, Unreliable Academic Researches and Making of Policies
Academic researches and making of policies depend on reliable sources
Categorizing “a trans-identified male” into the female group will produce inaccurate and unreliable national sex statistics, e.g. it may seem that “[sex and] gender equality” is better achieved. Also, the vulnerable women will not be noticed in the statistics hence their voices are harder to be heard. Taiwan’s [sex and] gender statistics include:
Furthermore, when the information of sex is concealed, academic researches will be influenced as well. For the purpose of “respecting one’s gender identity”, the Judicial Yuan has passed the amendments to The Code of Criminal Procedure and Enforcement Act of the Code of Criminal Procedure; thus, the party’s sex will be removed from judgements. In fact, judgements are very important for the people who do researches on crimes and justice, e.g. “An Analysis of Not-Guilty Verdicts: A Focus on Sex Crimes”. If the information of sex is not showed in judgements, there will be a lack of researches on “gender”.
Sex Differences in Market Surveys, Statistical Data, and Body Product Development
Market surveys, statistical data, and body product development (like shampoo, shower cream, and feminine wash, etc.) will be inaccurate even if unreliable when sex is replaced with gender identity in the production of statistics.
Some materials are added to specific face wash products for certain effects. It is likely that dermatologists recommend specific products to their patients. However, if the patient’s sex is unknown, the problems of hormone imbalance may be caused.
Hair textures of males and females are different, e.g. pattern of getting greasy, extent of thickness and softness, etc. If the customer’s sex is unknown, it is very likely that a wrong product will be given to.
