Transgender cashier, there's no check box for that.

All of this worry about what the person identifies as is a new problem. But I will bet that the customer that had the form designed does not really care since there is not a box to check, so I would not worry about it.

LOL. I can't think of a female "Oscar" but does "Oskar" count, as in Oskar Saville? grinning smiley

I’m pretty good with women’s weight, because i can compare their body style to mine. I am pretty clueless when it comes to males, though.

The weight thing is weird; estimating someone's weight is really difficult to begin with. Some reports I've had ask for general build (tall, slender, large, etc.), and some specifically say to NOT mention build. I've never been asked to estimate weight in pounds. Even guessing age within a certain range can be tough.

Ha! Not a DNA sample. No matter the paint job, men and women look certain ways by virtue of DNA. Women have certain curves, men have an Adam's apple, etc. Certain things can't be hidden by lashes or a flannel shirt.

I am curious how you propose obtaining a DNA sample from the cashier and then performing a chromosomal analysis in time to submit the report. I am also curious how much you think it would cost.

I go by DNA and make a note in the report.

I was actually banned from one grocery store for "misgendering" a transgender person. Sex identification has become a big hassle for me because of the rapidly growing popularity of transgenderism near me and in particular the surprising number of transgender persons working as cashiers in grocery stores. These are mostly genetic males dressed in conventionally feminine ways and with feminine names. I pick the female checkbox in these cases, as the correct woke practice seems to be to identify a person how he/she wants to be identified. But what do you do about an obvious genetic male wearing a dress and lipstick but retaining an uber-male name like Oscar? I have asked the mystery shopping company but received no response. My solution is just to do my best to stay out of lines with cashiers whose sex is unclear.
I still want to know: how do we distinguish between transvestite (cross-dressing) and transgender (actual change)? Why, oh why, is someone asking us to do this? If we are supposed to respect people, and PC demands this, why are we being so crass as to make presumptions regarding strangers while potentially finding doing them poorly or well in their working environment? I want this to stop. Now. Forever.

This has happened three times where I did not know what to put under male/female. We need another option.

Interesting!
I'm not certain how you could be banned for "misgendering".
Why?
Because unless you "looked behind the curtain" (so to speak) there is truly no way do figure a person's actual gender.
You should first go into a bit more detail about the banning and did you fight this banning.
We need to be free of this type of question. Please set us free to interact with persons. Well, maybe not. Some wag would probably show up in a gorilla suit...

There is a trans cashier at a local grocery store here, I put the name on her name tag into the shop, but the receipt showed her previous name. I was questioned about it, I explained that she was trans and that the store probably hadn't updated their database yet.
