What’s going on in the world? has everyone gone completely mad? A new parent who identifies as a “non-binary trans person” but is clearly a man has made a bizarre demand for his child to be given the world’s first “gender unknown” birth certificate. Yes, this is what is happening in Canada these days.
The Sun reports:
Canadian Kori Doty, who has a mustache and claims to be neither male or female, has been fighting to keep Searyl Atli’s gender off government records since giving birth last November.
Doty, who prefers to be referred to as “they” rather than “he” or “she”, told CBC they are “raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are.”
They added: “I’m recognizing them as a baby and trying to give them all the love and support to be the most whole person that they can be outside of the restrictions that come with the boy box and the girl box.”
Doty is trying to get British Columbia to issue the child with a birth certificate which does not have a gender marker.
But while the Canadian province has sent the baby health cards with an “undetermined” gender, authorities have refused to issue the certificate. Doty’s lawyer says BC only issues birth documents which have a male or female designation.
And while another Canadian province, Ontario, says it is reviewing its policies to include non-binary genders, critics claim such children could become a target for bullies or discrimination.
The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal is helping Doty fight to get all government documents to accommodate non-gendered people.
Doty said: “When I was born, doctors looked at my genitals and made assumptions about who I would be, and those assignments followed me and followed my identification throughout my life.
“Those assumptions were incorrect, and I ended up having to do a lot of adjustments since then.”
A request like this should never be given a second thought. It is ridiculous and should never be allowed to happen. We cannot allow the mentally ill to be given whatever they want. This is not the behavior of a normal person and should not be treated as such. What do you think? Sound off in the comments and share this with your family and friends.
