Genderless Child

This is loony. Gender identity is not an issue for the vast majority of people, but, unfortunately, this parent is foisting his own issues onto a child that would have been perfectly fine being a boy or girl.

Parent Kori Doty – a non-binary transgender person who identifies as neither male nor female – aims to allow the child to discover their own gender.

The health card has been issued with a “U” in the space for “sex”, which could be for “undetermined” or “unassigned”.

Kori Doty is fighting to omit the gender from the birth certificate.

The parent gave birth to Searyl Atli in November at a friend’s home in British Columbia. Kori Doty, who prefers to use the pronoun they, argues that a visual inspection at birth is unable to determine what gender that person will have or identify with later in life.

They want to keep Searyl’s sex off all official records.

“I’m raising Searyl in in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are, I’m recognising them as a baby and trying to give them all the love and support to be the most whole person that they can be outside of the restrictions that come with the boy box and the girl box,” the parentĀ was quoted by CBC as saying

Kori Doty, a community educator who is part of theĀ Gender-Free ID Coalition, said that those who feel different to the gender designation assigned at birth face several problems later in life trying to change their documents.

“When I was born, doctors looked at my genitals and made assumptions about who I would be, and those assignments followed me and followed my identification throughout my life,” Kori Doty said.

    Gender fluidity is going to destroy sex based legal protections.

    This is a raging civil war in the liberal lexiscon, and it is amusing.

    I’m finding that I am siding with classical feminists in this vicious liberal war.
