Tasmanian transgender madness

November 23, 2018

Tasmania is expected to become the first jurisdiction in Australia to make the inclusion of a child's sex on birth certificates optional, after the state's Lower House voted narrowly in favour of the reforms.

The Conservative Party sees the vote as another politicly correct virtue signal to the transgender movement and another nail in the coffin of traditional Australian families.

The ABC reports, the Government was seeking to update the marriage act by removing the requirement for people to divorce if they changed gender to recognise same-sex marriage.

But Labor and the Greens seized the opportunity to attach nine amendments to the bill.

All nine amendments were aimed at removing the discrimination of transgender and intersex people in the Births, Deaths and Marriage Act, and all passed with the casting vote of Liberal Speaker Sue Hickey.

The rest of the Liberal Government voted against the reforms.

Government minister Michael Ferguson has likened removing gender from birth certificates to conducting social experiments on children.

And the Conservative Party's New South Wales Senate candidate Sophie York has told the Sky News programme Outsiders, she agrees.
