Hello, I just sas the post about legal ses change in France and i'm a bit shocked, because i didn't see it this way. Mais d'après ce que j'avais suivi du projet "Justice au 21e siècle" le Sénat, avait rajouté l'apport de preuves médicales. Oui en effet le refus ne pourra plus être basé que sur cela, mais les preuves seront toujours demandées je pense. Et ayant été débouté sur ma demande cet été (pas opérée, "trop jeune") je pense qu'ils s'y attacheront toujours, tant que la loi précise médical.

Hi! I’ll answer in French: Je suis désolée que ta demande ait été refusée cet été pour des raisons aussi arbitraires, cela me met vraiment en rage de lire qu’un argument aussi stupide que la “jeunesse” puisse être invoqué de même que l’obligation d’une chirurgie alors que certains tribunaux accordent parfois le changement en amont. En ce qui concerne la loi, Sénat avait bien rajouté l’apport de preuves médicales, tu as tout à fait raison; simplement dans le système parlementaire français le Sénat n’a pas le dernier mot en cas de contestation du projet de loi tel qu’il a été voté par l’Assemblée, dans le cas ou celle-ci n’est pas d’accord et rejette les modifications apportées par le Sénat.

La condition de démédicalisation a été votée par l’Assemblée juste au début de l’été 2016, puis refusée par le Sénat à l’automne, puis réinscrite par l’Assemblée au moment du vote définitif. Elle figure dans l’article 56 section 2 bis de la loi publiée au Journal Officiel le 19 Novembre, telle qu’elle a été promulguée: https://www.legifrance.gouv.fr/eli/loi/2016/11/18/JUSX1515639L/jo#JORFARTI000033418899 Art 61-6: “[…] Le demandeur fait état de son consentement libre et éclairé à la modification de la mention relative à son sexe dans les actes de l'état civil et produit tous éléments de preuve au soutien de sa demande. Le fait de ne pas avoir subi des traitements médicaux, une opération chirurgicale ou une stérilisation ne peut motiver le refus de faire droit à la demande”.

Attention, cela veut dire que les preuves médicales ne sont plus des conditions nécessaires et des arguments pour refuser le changement, mais pas que l’on n’a pas le droit d’en produire: sachant que les procureurs seront les mêmes qu’auparavant, il y a évidemment toujours un gros risque de refus arbitraire. Raison pour laquelle de nombreuses associations, dont celle dont je suis membre (l’A.N.T), continuent de se battre pour un changement déclaratif libre et gratuit en mairie, ouvert au mineurs (ce qui n’est pas le cas avec la nouvelle loi) et proposant une mention de genre “neutre” pour les personnes qui le désirent ou en ont besoin (par exemple les personnes intersexes, et/ou “non-binaires”).

Le décret d’application pour le changement de la mention de sexe à l’état civil devrait passer d’après le ministère début 2017.Pour t’y retrouver dans tes démarches, l’association ACTHÉ a mis en place sur son site un guide récapitulatif assez pratique, qu’il faut encore actualiser: http://acthe.fr/fiches-pratiques/209-guide-le-changement-d-etat-civil-avec-la-loi-justice-du-xxie-siecle.html.

En espérant avoir répondu à ta question, n’hésite pas si un point en particulier te paraît obscur! Je te souhaite un beau dimanche,

Writing for Social Justice

Greetings,

As always, I’m deeply humbled and excited by all the people who are coming around and asking questions. 

I wanted to change gears slightly and let you all know about something really wonderful and exciting that ISN’T this tumblr. ;)

For the past 9 weeks I’ve been taking the writing course in the link above. It’s done by two amazing authors, Steven Barnes, who has many books to his credit and has written and consulted for television and movies as well, and his incredibly badass wife Tananarive Due, who is a horror writer with tonnes of short stories under her belt. 

They’re building a great community of like-minded writers, who want to write with honesty and integrity and change the world. 

This course I’ve been taking cost me $200. Until midnight tonight, you can register for $1. After tonight, the course will be closed until at least February. You will have access to all of the lectures, and to resources and a forum where our instructors and guests and other students are there for the sole purpose of helping each other build our careers as writers.

I’m not getting paid for this. I met Steven and Tananarive at a writing conference in September and was immediately impressed. Over the last 2 months, I have gotten to know them better, and I truly believe they have a lot to offer anyone who wants to better themselves and their writing.

I hope you’ll all join us.

Help Please?

Hey, so quick question, does anyone know where I can find the video about the contract issues that Minute Minecraft Parodies is having with its MCN (multi channel network)?

For those who don’t know, Minute Minecraft Parodies is a YouTube Channel, most famous for its series of animation clips that parody various films/tv series/etc. in roughly a minute. Using minecraft. It’s better than it sounds. And really funny.

Anyway, it turns out they’re having difficulties with their MCN… In that the MCN they signed with, not only breached their contract, but is now refusing to let MMP resign…

I’m always a bit sceptic about these situations (people lie), but since I’ve been following MMP for a while, they have higher credibility than other channels I follow. So I was going to download the video (as requested by creator), with intention of animating it (spread the message + get some practice in, neat!), when it was suddenly taken down. Not surprising, the creator did warn that this was likely to happen… You see, the MCN they signed with has full control of their channel and can remove videos.

This sucks. Plan A is suddenly gone. So does anyone happen to know where I can find it? Thanks.
