THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Argentina’s groundbreaking gender-identity law puts those of all other countries to shame, especially including the United States. Simply put, if you feel you are of a different gender from the one you born with, then that’s good enough to get your gender ID officially changed in Argentina. A stunningly smart step into the future.
For the rest of the world, the current 19th Century thinking on gender ID change process needs to go away. It shouldn’t matter to anyone of a person’s gender status — especially for government, religious or other public and private entities. The question of whether one is a genetic, cis or trans person is a question that should no longer be asked in our society. The only exception to this, of course, would be between two parties involved in a personal relationship.
Trans people don’t need third parties like doctors, judges and government officials to decide on something we already know and can do for ourselves. Argentina is now leading the rest of us towards a future with a barrier-free, test-free and embarrassment-free gender ID change process. My hats off to them for leading the way.
