First the rape clause, and now this load of fucking horseshit.

Children cannot fucking consent to abuse because they are children. What’s the next fucking step if the government decides to take this line?! “Oh you didn’t report your rape while it was actually happening so technically you consented.” Fuck this government.

This is an absolute fucking disgrace but once again it’ll be washed over by our pisstake of a national media. The BBC and all the newspaper will either defend or ignore any policies like these. The media is propping up this Tory government. It’s time they were fucking torn down.

“At the end of the day, my interest in acting stems from my passion and joy for the work. I never imagined that I would have so many great opportunities and so everything that comes my way is one more step along the way. I’m not looking for any kind of glory other than some measure of appreciation from audiences. I hope people enjoy my work and I try to give it my all.”

Meet the first baby in the world with a genderless ID card
Their parent, Kori Doty, believes doctors should not have the right to assign a baby's gender at birth.
By Brianna Sacks

A baby in Canada was issued a health card with no specific gender designation, possibly the first such case in the world. 

Kori Doty, a nonbinary transgender person, gave birth to Searyl Alti in November. They gave birth at the home of a friend, and therefore Searyl did not have the genital medical inspection that usually leads to either a male or female sex assignment on a birth certificate.

Doty fought to get Searyl a health card with a “U” (unassigned) gender marker and won, though the government refused to give the baby a birth certificate without a binary gender. Doty is still working on that. 

Doty, who is still going through the arduous experience of changing their birth certificate, told the CBC that doctors chose an “incorrect” gender assignment that “followed me and followed my identification throughout my life.”

They, along with eight other people and the British Columbia Trans Alliance, have brought a case before British Columbia’s Human Rights Tribunal demanding the right to change their birth certificates, arguing that the document encapsulates personal information that cannot change.

As a parent, Doty wants to spare their child that kind of stress and frustration.

“I’m raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are, 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 told the CBC.

This is huge, y’all. Thoughts? Current, future or maybe-one-day parents, would you opt for birth documents without an assigned gender? Nonbinary friends, would you have wanted that for yourself?
