Letter to the editor: Illness is illness

Right now you and everyone else does, with taxes to support the psychiatric hospitals and jails. Expanded insurance coverage would be helpful to patients/clients and practitioners. No one says who is going to pay for this treatment when people request expanded coverage for things like dialysis. There should be no difference.

KU Libraries offering buttons for employees, visitors to display preferred gender pronouns

Gender is a social construct passed down or around by the people within a culture providing information about how one should behave based on some set of social norms. This is fluid and ever changing. Genitalia develop based on a combination of hormonal and genetic interactions. Some are clearly representative of genetic markers, xx, XY, and others are not or are representative of xxx, XYY, Xxy, etc. so eyeballing it wouldn't always be informative. Therefore, while you may dislike or belittle it, gender identification should be left to the individual. No one should be told by others who they are.
