GENDER IDEOLOGY – Labour MP Charlotte Nichols has suggested dead people should be able to change their gender – as the growth of gender ideology has been slammed as ‘patently absurd’.
Can One’s Gender be Edited After Death?
Ms Nichols, the MP representative for Warrington North, asked if the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) 2004 could be edited ‘to allow transgender people who are deceased to be legally remembered by the gender they lived by’.
Replying to the MP’s written question to Parliament last month, Equalities Minister Stuart Andrew said the Government did not have plans to make further amendments to the Act.
‘Where a person was using their new gender with an organisation prior to their death, and that was on their personal records, then we anticipate that the organisation would engage with their family members using the new gender,’ he said.
Mr Andrew reportedly explained these ‘organisations could include the NHS’ – with his reaction sparking fears self-ID could become ‘normalised’ within the NHS.
Speaking of the recent developments in gender ideology, Sir Liam Fox, the MP for North Somerset, said: ‘It is patently absurd, factually inaccurate and a statistical distortion.
‘We should not be encouraging the idea that people can simply choose to change their biological status nor should we bend truth to accommodate an ever more extreme and dangerous ideology.’
More Opinions Concerning Gender Ideology
Lucy Marsh, a spokesperson for The Family Education Trust, said: ‘It’s extremely concerning that Labour appears to be pushing towards introducing gender-self-ID through the back door.
‘If coroners are allowed to lie on public record about the sex of deceased children, this will surely be a slippery slope towards self-ID becoming normalised in the NHS.’
Ms Nichols told The Telegraph: ‘My question follows on from a recent petition supported by many of my constituents, regarding amending the Gender Recognition Act.
‘The genesis of the petition was the murder of my constituent Brianna Ghey, whose life was brutally cut short before she was old enough to have formal legal recognition of who she was and how she will be remembered by her family, friends and our community.’
