Big #trans UK news, also the Tories and Mumsnet transphobes can get in the sea????

RT @PatrickStrud@twitter.com

4/ Question: did you know that up until 1970 trans people could just get their birth certificate corrected?
And that that suddenly stopped? No one knew why.
Most didn't even know that this happened. Until this case was exposed: inews.co.uk/news/long-reads/se

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

@cassolotl the book Trans Britain traces it back to a divorce case. Is that not true?


@celesteh @cassolotl that's mentioned in the article and I thought that too, but apparently this other case was kept secret till now

@wolfie @cassolotl

I hadn't realised how invasive and awful the medical part of that trial was.
