THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Yes, I’m talking about you, Judge Bill Graves. I had a splash of water thrown on my face when I was reminded earlier today of Argentina’s simple 15-day wait period, (almost) no questions asked, legal gender ID change policy.
I first wrote about this back in June:
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.
In addition, according to a report by National Public Radio, if a transgender person in Argentina wants SRS, the health system there will cover it.
There’s a reason we’ve a foot in the 19th Century in the United States — we continue to elect Representatives in Congress who will never vote favorably on any pro-trans legislation, never mind passing a national law permitting a 15-day, no questions asked, gender ID changes.
Your vote matters. So why not vote trans first?
(Graves was re-elected unchallenged in 2010. There’s plenty of time for a savvy person in Oklahoma to mount a challenge for the position.)
