RAEL’S COMMENT: wonderful news ! Freedom !
Brits will be able to change their gender without a doctor’s report under government proposals to scrap “demeaning” and “intrusive” rules that force people to undergo medical checks.
The rules currently state that men wanting to be identified as female and women who want to be men must prove that they have been living as their desired gender for two years before they can change status legally.
They must also undergo medical checks. Currently, people need to be diagnosed with gender dysphoria before being allowed to legally change sex.
Campaigners say the tests, which involve seeing a panel of doctors, is embarrassing and intrusive, saying it should be a matter for individuals.
