Belaboring the point
The accommodation of trans persons requires the replacement of sex with the incorrigibly mystical concept of 'gender identity'. The two concepts cannot exist side by side. Otherwise, that would justify differential treatment of the cis and the trans. Thus, the law can acknowledge only one concept as the basis of man- and womanhood, and since the acknowledgement of sex is transphobic and directly responsible for thirty deadly assaults against trans people and even more suicides per diem, the law must declare that 'gender identity' is the only thing that makes a man a man and a woman a woman. But 'gender identity' simply cannot be defined. All definitions are either circular or hopelessly subjective. Therefore, the acknowledgement of trans rights entails the recognition that we are all amoebas.
