Canberra : Australia this week brought in new passport rules allowing citizens to nominate their official gender as male, female or indeterminate, without having to undergo surgery as proof of a sex change.
Senator Louise Pratt, Australia's first parliamentarian with a transgendered partner -- born female but now a man -- said the change was a huge step forward.
Pratt was quote as saying
The reason this bill was passed was because Being transgender is very distressing, and highly inconvenient ."
Another quote I saw from and Aussie leaving the country to live somewhere else said:
I am getting out because I am worried with all this transgender legislation, they will make it compulsory.
I also wonder if they are just trying to save costs so we only need one restroom when we travel now.
