Straight guys this weekend received more dating advice than they likely wanted about their supposed “right” to be exclusionary of trans women partners, but parents of a baby in British Columbia are hoping their child’s health ID is the first step toward achieving a universal human right to be free of assigned gender labels from Day 1.
B.C. baby first to get health card without gender marker.
“For us, it’s a huge step forward,” the baby's parent said https://t.co/Kktib0cJSp

The baby’s health card was issued with a “U” next to “Sex,” and its parents are working with human rights lawyer barbara findlay (all lower-case, thanks) to battle the Vital Statistics Agency over its refusal to issue a birth certificate for the child.
Kori Doty isn’t fighting only to keep the baby’s sex off of government documents, but out of day-to-day conversation as well, saying, “Often I’ll just say I don’t know yet, or I’m not rushing to apply those types of labels on this kid. Right now they’re just a baby.”
Global News reports that gender expression was added as a ground to the Canadian Human Rights Act in June.
This is absurd … maybe even ridiculous … and definitely stupid.

Hey, don’t be so quick to judge. There’s only one thing that’s certain beyond a doubt in this case:
Ugh… I guarantee these parents are insufferable to be around. WE GET IT, you're "forward thinking". Smh.

Social engineering starting at birth. Does the child have a chance to avoid the highest order of dysfunction? #oann

America will need a #CulturalBillOfRights requiring a child to be assigned a gender identity consistent w/ its biological sex to stop this.

poor child. Can the baby get gender dependent critical illness/life insurance without gender on ID?

You have to be seriously fucked to risk your child's health like that. Doctors NEED to know if you're male or female

Gender differences in pharmacokinetics could adversely affect a child who has not determined its own gender. Don't trip on that huge step!

how does this help the baby's health in any way?
it's only to feed the parents' fucking egos.

Every baby has a "gender marker." It's called DNA. https://t.co/qb3UxiXA0G

So DNA can change as a person becomes more woke? ?
