It's not necessary to use the PC-speak phrase “assigned at birth” in connection with transsexual and/or transgender people, especially when the description is factually and legally incorrect. Here’s why.

A baby who is born with a penis - and in that sense is arguably said to be "assigned at birth" to be a male - may of course have genital reconstruction surgery in which the penis is removed and a vagina constructed in its place.

No longer having a penis, the person is legally free to use the female restroom since, despite the so-called "assignment" at birth, she is now anatomically female.

In contrast, a person who is born with a penis, and continues to have a penis, creates problems for many when that person uses restrooms, showers, locker rooms, etc., which are nominally reserved for people with vaginas - especially when those people are young girls.

In short, the test is what genitals they have at the moment, not what genitals they were born with (i.e., "assigned at birth").
