A man who underwent gender reassignment to become a woman has lost his High Court bid to have his identity as father removed from his children’s birth papers.
The transgender father began gender reassignment back in 2012 and is waiting for a final operation to become female.
She claimed it was discrimination and a breach of her human right for respect to private and family life not to take the description “father” off the children’s birth certificates.
Identified only as JK she challenged the refusal of the Registrar General to alter the certificates to describe her simply as “parent” or “father/parent”.
Sigh. Some people just have a bit too much time on their hands, eh? Seems fair enough that the kiddies, conceived naturally before the knackers were taken off, get described as the children of said father really.
