Government consultation on transgender: should changing sex be simply a matter of ‘self-declaration’?

Help stop sex changes on demand – your chance to speak out, from Christian Institute.

The Government is consulting on making it easier to change legal sex. It is asking about:

·       Removing any need for a medical diagnosis or two years living as the opposite sex, in a move towards ‘self-declaration’; and

·       Giving legal recognition to those who claim to identify as neither male nor female – so-called ‘non-binary’.

Please respond to the consultation by 11pm on 19 October 2018. A short briefing to help you can be found here.

As Christians we must show grace and truth to transgender people. We must hold faithfully to the Word of God – showing compassion but not compromising. The way to support someone who believes they are the opposite sex is to gently help them accept reality. It is not loving to endorse their misconception.

These radical proposals also threaten the safety and privacy of women and girls. There have been disturbing incidents in Canada and the US of abusive men pretending to be women so they can go into ladies’ changing rooms or even women’s shelters. A self-declaration system makes this easier.
