Strasser: "Defining Sex: On Marriage, Family, and Good Public Policy"

Mark Strasser (Capital University Law School) has posted "Defining Sex: On Marriage, Family, and Good Public Policy" (17 Michigan Journal of Gender & Law 57) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

This article addresses interstate recognition of families where one of the adults in the marital relatonship is transgendered. While most states have made clear the conditions under which birth certificates can be changed, they are much less clear about how local marriage laws apply when one of the parties is trangendered. Current law in many states simply must be changed, either because it does not take into account the actual lives of the transgendered or because it is indeterminate.

My law practice is set up in Tulsa, OK and in all frankness, the Oklahomans will never adopt such laws...we are very very conservative politically.
