Birth certificates are so not inclusive.
The Human Rights Tribunal in British Columbia will consider completely eliminating gender designations from birth certificates in response to complaints from the Trans Alliance Society (TAS) and other transgender individuals, according to an article in the National Post.
According to the complainants, we need to stop acting as if doctors can tell the sex of a baby just by looking at the baby’s genitals:
Birth certificates [may] give false information about people and characterize them in a way that is actually wrong, that assumes to be right, and causes people . . . actual harm,” said transgender woman and TAS chair Morgane Oger.
“It’s considered true and infallible when it isn’t,” she added.
