Posted on 06/14/2014 2:43:32 PM PDT by Salman
A landmark law in Denmark making it easier for transgender people to change their legal gender should set an example to governments across the world, Amnesty International said.
The Danish parliament yesterday passed a bill allowing transgender people to obtain official documents reflecting their gender identity without needing to be diagnosed with a mental disorder or undergo surgeries resulting in irreversible sterilization.
This progressive and courageous step made by Danish MPs should set an example to the rest of Europe and beyond, said Amnesty International Denmarks Helle Jacobsen.
All states should ensure that transgender people can obtain legal recognition of their gender through a quick, accessible and transparent procedure in accordance with their own sense of their gender identity.
Previously, Danish transgender people could only change their legal gender after receiving a psychiatric diagnosis of transsexualism or undergoing surgeries, irreversible sterilization and other medical treatments including hormone treatments.
Similar repressive laws affecting transgender people still exist across the world.

Please note: The "oppressive" previous laws (such as exist elsewhere) are insanely liberal by the standards of a few years ago.
Furthermore one can now painlessly change one's official gender back and forth as one pleases. I predict this will cause problems for the Danish authorities that they do not expect.
But, of course, it would be oppression to restrict me to any predetermined list (however long) of genders - I must be able to define a gender that reflects my sense of gender identity, and redefine it as often as that sense changes. O brave new world!

Re: Trans-gender law
Sirs and/or Ma’ams:
The only positive is it could stop people from surgically mutilating their bodies and turning themselves into sterile eunuchs.
And with the right surgery, they can.
All the problems in the world, and they’re worried about frickin’ freaks.
Society celebrates youth and puts down old age. There are surely many more old people who could benefit by having their age lowered than there are idiots who want to mutilate their bodies because they think they should have been born the other sex.
So long as they do it in their own country, knock yourseves out kids.
What a waste of time for a society on the way to Sharia law.
I’d also like to declare my house a pocketwatch to avoid property tax.
You want people that are that mentally disturbed to remain able to procreate?
Technically, in this case, that’s doable.
The only Great Danes I know are dogs, as for the rest, meh!
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Nobody “across the world” is stopping these sexual deviant freaks from engaging in genital mutilation. WE NORMAL PEOPLE JUST DON’T WANT TO PAY FOR THEIR FREAKY, EXPENSIVE LITTLE SEXUAL EXPERIMENTS.
Remember, these are our ‘allies’ that we must support under any circumstances.
Sure, wait until Muslims take over. You’ll be wishing only your nads were cut off....
this will enable identity thieves to hide easier.

Chromosomes dictate gender....”F”ing deal with it!
DNA doesn’t lie.
Might as well advocate changing your race.
Ole Christensen Rømer is puking in his grave!
So we “must” appease to the demands of pervs now?
We on track literally for child rape to be legal if this insanity continues.
There is no such thing as gender. it is just a social construct made up by people who want to destroy social order.
I want to change my age in accordance with my “self perception.” If you don’t refer to me as a strapping 22-year-old, you’re a bigot, and I’ll sue.
This is natural selection in self destruct mode. What would Darwin say?
Tell it to Michael Jackson, who appeared to want to change into a white woman.
Why in the world are people so obsessed with sexual preferences / perversions when the end of times approaches in the form of Muslim savages. It’s more than astounding.
“World must follow Denmark’s example after landmark transgender law”
Amnesty International once had a serious interest in the welfare of people suffering at the hands of tyrants. Now they are focused on killing babies and promoting sexual deviancy.
Well you know....
Michael Jackson was a success story to many.
Born a poor black child.
Died a middle aged white woman.....
Bill Ayers recently finished Michael's Autobiography, combining it with a travel guide:
There is no such thing as a transgender person. It is simply a mental illness that the Progs will not allow to be a mental illness any longer.
So if I decide I am really a dog and not a human being that would make me trans species.
Wow. I could start my own little special imnterst group.
Maybe get a call from the President. Surely get dozens of interviews on MSNBC. Maybe Federal money. I mean I can bark and scratch myself in all the right places so maybe I can pull this off..........
TONY BENNET...... I LEFT MY NUTS ..... IN SAN FRANCISCO
I am certain that a gender capable of this feat is just waiting to be discovered.
what CC said
It's just a way to get free drinks on ladies' night at the clubs.
All part of the New World Order. From now on, if Jimmy jumps off the bridge, so must you.
Well... THEY are the frickin' freaks.
Can you lick your own privates ?
You are darned lucky I was NOT drinking coffee while reading this!!!
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.
Isaiah 3:9 The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.
2 Peter 2:13b Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.
1. But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
2. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
3. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
4. For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment;
5. if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
6. if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
7. and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
8. (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
9. if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
10. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
11. yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
12. But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
13. They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.
But there IS hope!!!
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...
You need to ask the New Army superior officers...
