Scottish Government Consultation on Review of the Gender Recognition Act 2004

Published: 28th February 2018

The Government in Scotland is consulting over a review of the process by which people in Scotland may apply for recognition of their acquired gender identity.

Self-declaration, we believe, would be harmful for individuals, their families and society as a whole. It makes gender identity simply a matter of a person's subjective feelings about themselves and changing legal gender simply a matter of personal choice. It encourages the view that gender identity defines reality and that biological sex is but a social construct, something 'assigned' at birth. This new ideological dogma has no evidence-base in science but self-declaration would appear to reinforce it as if proven fact.
