Crazy Queensland

Crazy stuff from Queensland

The Queensland government is now set to introduce reforms to parliament that the attorney general, Shannon Fentiman, says will modernise birth certificates to make sure a person’s legal identity matches their lived identity.

Hey Shannon, it’s a birth certificate not a life certificate. No one can look at a newborn and say “this baby’s lived identity is going to be…..”

The bill will also allow for two mothers or two fathers on a birth certificate, or for them simply to be listed as parents. And while parents will still need to register a sex for their child in the registry, it would no longer appear on the certificate unless parents opt for it.

A baby can’t have two mothers or two fathers. The parent might have a girlfriend or boyfriend and that’s fine but let’s not confuse the issue.

Oh, and many people does this effect?

Very few so we are making system changing decisions for a few that will impact on the majority.
