A Canadian parent who identifies as a “non-binary trans person” is pushing for a hospital in British Columbia to allow their baby to be the first ever infant without out a designated gender listed on its birth certificate. Kori Doty birthed Searyl Atli Doty at a friend’s home back in November and has registered the child as “gender unknown,” or “U” on the child’s Canadian birth certificate.
Doty, whose pronoun is “they” does not identify as male or female and wants to give Searyl the opportunity to pick a gender the baby chooses to identify with when the time comes. Doty says assigning gender at birth is a human rights violation and causes harm.
There is also a proposal in British Columbia by a human rights body to leave off every child’s sex from every legal document.
Today on “Pat & Stu,” the guys discuss the implications of overzealous activism, gender confusion, and the debate of whether “feeling” like a man or a woman is a legitimate social cause.
