Theresa May vows to ‘streamline’ process for changing gender as she says ‘being trans is not an illness’

Theresa May vows to ‘streamline’ process for changing gender as she says ‘being trans is not an illness’, by the Telegraph.

Theresa May has said the Government will seek to “streamline and de-medicalise” the process of changing gender to reflect that “being trans is not an illness”.

Speaking at the Pink News Awards in London, the Prime Minister told a star-studded audience that changes will be made to the Gender Recognition Act in order to reflect updated attitudes towards being transgender.

She said: “We are pressing ahead with inclusive relationships and sex education in English schools, making sure that LGBT issues are taught well.

“We’re determined to eradicate homophobic and transphobic bullying.

“We have set out plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act and streamline and de-medicalise the process for changing gender, because being trans is not an illness and it shouldn’t be treated as such.”

Compulsory sex education from an LGBT viewpoint. What could possibly go wrong? Imagine how much greater Great Britain would have been if these measures had been adopted a thousand years earlier! Progress has indeed arrived.

Perhaps the next generation of virtue-signalers will top this with a crusade to bring LGBT rights to the Middle East? Or will Christianity be driven out of Britain as unacceptable in the eyes of PC, leaving Britain to an Islamic future? Progress is so hard to predict before you get there.
