A 12-year-old transgender Alberta boy has been granted a new birth certificate that recognizes him as male.
Wren Kauffman was presented with the new document on Sunday in Edmonton during a Pride festival brunch hosted by the city’s mayor.
The province’s culture minister, Heather Klimchuk, made the presentation.
A spokesperson for the minister says the new certificate simply has a “M” instead of an “F.”
Kauffman had filed a complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission over the inability to change the sex on his birth certificate.
Alberta law states that transgender persons must have reassignment surgery before they can change the sex on their birth certificates, but Premier Dave Hancock said in April that the surgery requirement will be dropped.
Wren, who was born a girl, had said it was stressful being listed as female.
A week after Hancock made the announcement, a judge ruled that the Alberta law dealing with birth certificates violates the rights of transgender people.
And as usual, they don’t have the guts to fight the courts by invoking the notwithstanding clause (only Quebec has that kind of guts). Or, more likely, they just don’t give a shit. Conservatives-In-Name-Only, as always…
Amazing how progressives (including gutless ‘conservatives’) think the State can, by the stroke of a pen, officially change the sex someone was born as, as if the State were God, and its pronouncements Divine Truth.
The hubris of cultural Marxists has no bounds, truly…
