"People assigned _female_ at birth"

The point is to exclude men who are "really" women without saying something
like, "those born with two X chromosomes" or "those born without a Y
chromosome" or some such.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
