Reports (2)
  • Status is not correct "Legal, no surgery required"
  • Other "PRocess of legally changing gender consists of pathologization, incuding the need to deliver up to 2 or even more statements from psychatrists. Since no one is found guilty of wrongdoing by assigning the gender, trans* persons have to legally challenge their gender assignment in court. This results in themselves being sentenced to pay the court fees afterwards, typically exceeding € 3.000 - depending on the judges decision."
