Kori Doty, who is a ‘non-binary trans person’ wants the ‘Non-Gendered’ birth certificate for an 8-month-old newborn.
This could be the World’s first baby to be registered with gender ‘Unknown’.
A non-binary trans person means that she identifies as neither male nor female. Doty wants the certificate to be issued by the Canadian authorities.
Health card has been issued with a “U”..!
This baby’s name is Searyl Atli which has been registered for health care with a British Columbia health card marked with a ‘U’ in the space for “sex”, which could be for “unassigned” or “undetermined” that is normally reserved for Gender.
A first infant born without an official gender designation…!
All thanks to the brave celebrities such as Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox sharing their stories and raising the big issue and problems like ‘transphobia’ as something that needs to be talked.
The health card for Searyl is marked U instead of Male or Female….!!
Those conversations are leading to real change as we know that gender identity and gender designation are huge topics of conversation around the world.
Searyl Atli’s parent, Kori Doty wants Searyl’s gender kept off any records.
“I’M RAISING SEARYL IN SUCH A WAY THAT UNTIL THEY HAVE THE SENSE OF SELF AND COMMAND OF VOCABULARY TO TELL ME WHO THEY ARE, I’M RECOGNIZING THEM AS A BABY AND TRYING TO GIVE ALL LOVE AND SUPPORT TO BE the WHOLE PERSON THAT CAN BE OUTSIDE OF THE RESTRICTIONS THAT COME WITH THE BOY BOX AND THE GIRL BOX.”
Kori Doty continued:
“WHEN I WAS BORN, DOCTORS LOOKED AT MY GENITALS AND MADE ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT WHO I WOULD BE AND THOSE ASSIGNMENTS FOLLOWED ME AND FOLLOWED MY IDENTIFICATION THROUGHOUT MY LIFE.”
World’s first case…!!
The Canadian baby has been issued a health card without assigning a gender which is the first case in the world.
Parent Kori Doty aims to allow the baby to discover their own gender….!!
“THOSE ASSUMPTIONS WERE INCORRECT AND I ENDED UP HAVING TO DO A LOT OF ADJUSTMENTS SINCE THEN”.
Doty is a parent and his child’s happiness is the most important thing.
Doty finished with a statement:
“I WANT MY BABY TO HAVE ALL OF THE SPACE TO BE THE MOST WHOLE AND COMPLETE PERSON THAT THEY CAN BE”.
There are also changes happening with the Australian government as they are now working towards creating a new gender designation for the passports.
