Changing gender is to become easier under Government plans to knock away “demeaning” rules that force people to undergo medical checks.
A demand to provide two years worth of evidence showing you have been living as the opposite sex could be scrapped after an official review was launched.
The need to undergo a medical check that sees a panel of doctors test whether you are psychologically sound could also be ended.
Suzanna Hopwood, a member of the Stonewall Trans Advisory Group, said: “It’s vital that this reform removes the requirements for medical evidence and an intrusive interview panel, and finally allows all trans people to have their gender legally recognised through a simple administrative process.”
is embarrassing and intrusive
Well you can throw that out the window now, because apparently they want to allow anyone that wants a sex change, to be able to.

Are you sure it doesn't affect me?
I wouldn't be so passionate about this for no reason, I'll tell you that.
Well now you just look foolish...
because I work with mentally ill and troubled teens, and mental health in general is a huge part of who I am and what I do...
I personally know kids that are dealing with this right now.
...your opinion doesn't even affect me.
So you're really going to tell me what affects me in my life? How arrogant can you be?
Didn't know you had this in you to be honest, maybe I overestimated you.
Yes I've been volunteering the last 8 years of my life, helping young kids for fun only, because it doesn't affect me personally at all.
