Europe's terrible trans rights record: will Denmark's new law spark change? 1.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Denmark has become the first European country to allow legal change of gender without a medical expert statement. Why are clinical diagnosis and surgery still insisted upon elsewhere? In one leap, Denmark has changed its law on trans rights , taking it from a country where transgender people were forced to undergo sterilisation in order to be legally recognised as a different gender, to one of the most progressive countries on the issue in the world. Unlike in most of the countries that allow new gender recognition, trans people in Denmark now do not even need a medical expert statement, but can simply self-determine. There are still restrictions the minimum age is 18, and there is a six-month waiting period before the person has to reconfirm their wish to have their gender legally changed but the law seems to be moving in the right ...

It is rarely enjoyed by women or transgender men and women, queer people or people of color. When you are an Other, you are always in danger of having your body or some other intimate part of yourself exposed in one way or another. A stranger reaches out and touches a pregnant womans belly. A man walking down the street offers an opinion on a womans appearance or implores her to smile. A group of teenagers driving by as a person of color walks on a sidewalk shout racial slurs, interrupting their quiet. For most people, privacy is little more than an illusion, one we create so we can feel less vulnerable as we move through the world, so we can believe some parts of ourselves are sacred and free from uninvited scrutiny.
