Corporal Klinger would have been able to join the WACS without sex reassignment surgery.
States are in charge of birth, marriage and death certificates. These documents are important legal and historical documents but they will soon be very unreliable.
People who see themselves as a different gender at any given time but don’t want to have sex reassignment surgery are asking that their birth records be changed to reflect their new self-designated gender despite the fact that they have not had sex reassignment surgery.
This kind of change will one day make public records of their birth, marriage, death meaningless. If we can simply alter records based on how people feel, what good are they?
We might also see a Supreme Court case at sometime in the future mandating record alteration and the adding of imaginary genders besides male and female. The Supreme Court is butting their nose into social issues more and more.
Name changes and the awarding of benefits have been granted as the result of court cases. All U.S. states allow the changing of gender on driver’s licenses. Passports can be altered if the transgender has completed the full transition. However, birth certificates in all states could not be changed without sex reassignment surgery. That is changing.
The leftists are now hoping to pass laws that change records based on how a person feels about their gender.
Most states will allow a gender change on birth certificates if the person has completed the transition. Alabama also makes a notation that the gender has been changed.
As of July 2014 New York State passed legislation easing changing recorded gender and as of December 2014 New York City followed, completely eliminating the need for gender reassignment surgery) when filing for birth gender change in New York.
Colorado has a bill in the Senate legislature which will allow people pretending to be a different gender to amend their certificates. They won’t have to go through any type of medical procedure.
It’s fraud as one Colorado Republican put it but a transgender woman present during the open hearings and who did not go through the surgery said she’s not a fraud and that was it – it passed their assembly. Transgenders and the LGBT lobby say it is discrimination to not go along with the fraud. The bill might not pass because the Senate is controlled by the GOP.
Altering biological and historical fact is A-OK with the left. In fact, it’s encouraged.
Transgenders represent only 0.3% of the population but the majority has to accommodate any changes to history and biology they feel like making, even if it’s only based on feelings and even if some are flat-out mentally ill.
New Jersey has been trying to get the same bill passed but Gov. Christie vetoed it last year though the left is trying again. They just keep trying until they win.
Illinois wants the same bill. Mississippi allows a gender change based on the honor system, Washington State requires “appropriate clinical treatment”.
This is taking us to some pretty dark places. Facebook has 56 gender choices and Planned Parenthood is teaching 13 year olds to pick their gender. The DSM psychiatric manual has replaced Gender Identity Disorder with Gender Dysphoria – soon there will be no term for it and we all will get to pretend that people pretending to be of a different gender are a different gender.
Without a notation that the gender has been changed, the certificates of record are useless but the left likes to rewrite history. Everything is relative to them.
