Whoa Man

Marriage in the United States of America shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman.
These words are part of at least some of the proposed Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. This would be the second Amendment to actually take rights away from the people (Amendment 18, Prohibition, being the other). This would be on top of DOMA which prevents the federal government from recognizing marriage except between "one man and one woman". Here's the problem. What makes a person a man or a woman?

See if you can answer these questions:
  • What if a person has a sex change operation? Does this change the sex of the person they can marry? If so, what if they were married pre-op? Would that marriage now be nullified? What if both spouses had operations? Instead of having the operation on purpose, what if was done out of medical necessity or industrial accident?
  • Here's a list of all kinds of anomalous sexual morphologies. Which ones count as men and which ones as women? Particularly note cases 3-8 and 13-16.
The only thing worse than an ignorant person is the politician that panders to them.
