Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the gendered societal structure
Petition to Obama administration tops 88K signatures!
I’m not at all familiar with the US system but informed that 100K signatures could lead to a debate in the Whitehouse.
Not sure where this is going – but urge anyone who is reading this from the US to support – only a short time to go before timed out but on course to reach target 100K!
My petitions are not time constrained and will remain online until objectives are achieved – although cannot get close to matching signature achievement of our US cousins.
Legal protection for all trans* and intersex in the UK
In support of ‘X’ passports in the United Kingdom
There is a short time to go before the end of this Parliament session and still time for new signatures to be added to Early Day Motion (EDM) 907. If you have not done so, I urge you to contact your local parliamentary representative and urge they support this motion. I understand that Julian Huppert is prepared to re-table the EDM in the next Parliament session but all signatures will need to be sought again therefore ongoing support for the issue is essential.
Check to see if your MP has signed EDM 907 http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2013-14/907.
We need realistically no less than 100 Member signatures in order to push for a debate in the House.
Just remember this – the UK government has reneged on a commitment to improve the lives of ALL trans* people in an underhand and despicable way. A policy ‘review’ on proposals for ‘X’ passports was nothing more than a sham and the government has gone to great and disproportionate lengths in order to undermine its own commitment on this issue in the knowledge that people are condemned to social invisibility and denied legitimate identity through discriminatory laws and policies. Non-gendered and bi-gendered people are denied civil rights and fundamental human rights that others can take for granted within a so-called democratic society.
I remain hopeful it is possible to have the discriminatory decision to reject ‘X’ passports overturned and, yes, that will indeed lead to calls for a wider implementation of a third option in other areas and the removal of the unnecessary requirement to declare ‘M/F’ in other areas – as we are seeing already in Australia.
Finally, in light of what was brought to my attention this week; not worth spending time fighting dinosaurs and not getting into online debates on the matter but, as I was the probable subject used in her tabloid piece, here is my response to Janett Scott..........
The denial of existence is the worst act of discrimination by the (privileged) gendered majority against the non-gendered
