The Human Rights Commission is calling for a change in the law to add gender to the grounds of discrimination. This will more easily allow schoolchildren to change gender. I mean, legally. Only 10 or so people change genders here every year and I bet none of them are of school age.
Gender identity is implicitly included under the Human Rights Act as a prohibited ground of discrimination.
What I want to know is this: How come there are more trans people who are male - and want to change their gender to female than the other way around?
TV3 has transgender report meets mixed reaction. Mixed.
