Big surprise,* trans people lost the right to self-ID correction of birth certificates in the UK in the 70s not due to FRAUD or whatever other bollocks, but due to cis men wanting to prevent trans men from inheritance/succession stuff, i.e. THE PATRIARCHY.
* not rly tho
I should have read the article before replying. The known case was Corbett v Corbett, but this was secret precedent in that case.
Mrs Corbett was a former model, married to an aristo. The secrecy demanded by the judge for the previous case and the male progenitor problem was not extended to her and the tabloid press absolutely savaged her.
@cassolotl Jan Morris talks in “Conundrum” about getting her amended birth certificate delivered by a man from the Ministry - I always wondered what happened to that
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
