Ireland’s ‘trans’ bill will grant state recognition to teens’ chosen gender

Ireland’s Parliament has proposed a bill that would allow 16 year-olds to have their “gender” changed on their birth certificates and passports. The Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton, said she would bring the proposal to Parliament on Tuesday, reports LifeSiteNews.

The Gender Recognition Bill proposes to have the state recognize a person’s “acquired gender” for all purposes, including birth certificates, marriage and civil partnership registries.

The draft bill, brought forward in the summer, proposed setting the age limit at 18. But the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Education and Social Protection criticized this, saying that 16 year-olds can consent to surgery. The government has responded with a revision that allows 16-year-olds to have their new “gender” recognized by the state with parental consent.

The committee wanted a section dropped that required married “transgendered” persons to obtain a divorce before the state would recognize their new “gender.” The committee has also recommended that a guidance be drafted to “support acceptance and inclusion of ‘trans’ children in schools,” the Irish Times reports. Also recommended by the committee is an amendment to the Equality Acts to ban “discrimination” on the grounds of “gender identity.”
