NON-GENDERED

Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the gendered societal structure

 

NON-GENDERED IN THE UK

Now you can finally have your say in shaping future government policy!

 

The Government Equalities Office (GEO) has launched an online survey as part of consultation process for TransEquality Action Plan.

 

The government action plan proposes a long awaited and overdue breakthrough in that there is recognition finally that our needs have not been addressed.

 

I must stress it is VITAL that non-gendered human beings in the UK get involved and complete the survey.

 

It is through participation that we can increase our visibility as a group and inform the government about the measures that urgently require to be undertaken in order to address our situation and implement change that best meets our needs.

 

The survey that can be accessed from within an e-bulletin on the GEO website  http://www.equalities.gov.uk/news/transgender.aspx

 

The GEO request that surveys are completed no later than 6 May 2011.

 

Any questions relating to the survey or other aspects of the Government Action Plan should be addressed to Transgender@geo.gsi.gov.uk.

 

Visit http://elancane.livejournal.com for more information about the survey (and a warning about glitches in the system).

 

The denial of existence is the worst act of discrimination by the gendered majority against the non-gendered.

NON-GENDERED

 

Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the societal gender system

 

A groundbreaking opportunity exists right now for new legislation to be brought before parliament in the United Kingdom.

 

The legislation would grant the right of recognition to the invisible and disenfranchised minority of human beings who cannot identify within the societal gender system.

 

At present, it is not possible to acquire personal identification documentation (passport, driver licence, national insurance number etc.) or access many essential services (car insurance, private healthcare insurance etc.) without stating whether one is male or female.

 

The gendered social structure fails to recognise the existence or respect the fundamental rights of those who do not identify as male or female and we are forced to accept compulsory categorisation into an inappropriate gendered role in order to function and participate within society. This situation is unacceptable and a breach of the most basic human right to dignity and equal treatment within society.

 

The proposed legislation will state the necessity for a third option of ‘non gender-specific’ or ‘gender not specified’ in sex/gender fields on all application and registration forms alongside existing gendered options of male and female.

 

All documentation issued where the third option has been selected will not feature a gendered role either on the item or in corresponding official records.

 

In order for the proposed legislation to succeed in effecting a change to the law, there needs to be firm evidence of social necessity and this is where I need the help of EVERY person in the UK who does not identify as male or female and would use the non gender categorised option if it were available.

 

Please send an email to Christie.Elan-Cane@ukgateway.net with the following text -

I SUPPORT NON GENDER-SPECIFIC OPTION - as the subject.

 

Your email should include your full name and preferably your full address in the UK (the address is not essential and you should not be put off responding if you’d really rather not disclose your address, but responses with a UK address will carry more weight).

 

Please do not send any attachment documents with your email.

 

I will forward all responses to the Office of the Member of Parliament who has agreed to present the case on my behalf.

 

You could also consider lobbying your local parliamentary representative in the UK and elsewhere, as the failure to recognise the existence and resultant marginalization of those outside the societal gender system is a global human rights issue.

Hey, I'm new, I found this community through someones livejournal or something.

I like the concept, and think this could be a pretty neat community if it got going.

I guess I consider myself male in sex, but genderqueer in gender.
