Tasmania is set to become the first state to remove gender from birth certificates in a move to appease transgender activists.
According to The Australian, a vote is expected in Tasmania’s lower house next month, as amendments to a bill ending the need for trans people to divorce before they can change their gender on official documents.
Amendments also include removing the need for trans people to have sex-change surgery before switching genders.
The Australian Christian Lobby said the amendments essentially abolished gender, further “homogenised humanity” and “greatly diminished” the significance of birth certificates.
Lyle Shelton from the Australian Conservatives said, “We said this would follow de-gendering of marriage. It’s even happening under a Liberal Government. Such is the capitulation to the rainbow political movement’s vision to re-shape our kids’ world.”
Rowan Dean from The Outsiders called the move “a major win for insanity.”

.@rowandean: This is a major win for insanity. You start removing information for some left-wing ideology, you are sick.
