Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the gendered societal structure
WHY DOES HM GOVERNMENT REQUIRE GENDER TO ORDER AN NHS HOME TEST?
In the midst of a global pandemic HM Government has placed an inappropriate and unnecessary barrier that prevents people who do not define as either male or female ordering a home test.
If you cannot access a test or if you would like to support those who cannot access a home test then I’d recommend expressing outrage to your local MP in addition to posting an online complaint on HM Government’s website.
For anyone in need of guidance, here is a template of email sent to my MP,
‘Dear [ENTER MP’S NAME]
It was brought to my attention that the government website requires applicants for Covid-19 home test to enter Male/Female gender.
The website will not process applications where this unnecessary requirement is not fulfilled.
Therefore I would not be able to request a home test if I develop symptoms or otherwise was advised to take a test.
Thousands of people in the UK similarly cannot order a test without adhering to this unnecessary and discriminatory requirement.
I request you raise with the relevant authority as a matter of extreme urgency.
Please respond to this email with regards to actions you have taken to address the issue and update me as soon as the issue has been resolved with the removal of this requirement.’

And remember to include your full postal address in your email.
The denial of existence is the worst act of discrimination by the gendered majority against the non-gendered
