    What’s wrong with the words “person” or “human”?

    1. Except gender is a very important part of who we are. It’s so important for trans people to get others to recognise them as the gender they identify as, as it is essential to their happiness and health. Degendering everyone as ‘human’ doesn’t solve anything and actually creates more problems.

      bcause she does not want to be called ‘a person’ she wants to be called ‘a woman’

  2. why should it matter where in the world she had the treatment done? she had it done perfectly legally so let her get on with her life.

  3. Why, I’m so surprised that a ‘caring, sharing, egalitarian’ nominally communist government should devote so much time and energy to being so hung up on gender – isn’t that bourgeouis socially construct affectation? Time to get on the phone to my Uncle Joe right now to denounce the People’s Committee of Binh Phuoo for ideologically unsound activities! I bet Marx is well displeased and will be paying a visit to Binh Phuoo with his brothers Harpo, Chico and Zeppo to sort these ‘comrades’ out!
