    It really isn't anyones business but if you are going to ask please do respectfully, like maybe 'what do you identify as' or what are your pronouns.

    I know this is dangerous territory, even for medical professionals. But unless you're a doctor and the gender of your patient really matters, because it would affect the diagnosis, it's kind of none of your business what gender someone is.

    They should have to declare it by law, just like sex offenders.

    But, you can usually tell with the elbows, hands, shoulders and adams apples, but these surgeons are getting better and better.

    Yes!  IF it matters, otherwise it is non-of-your business.
