Man legally changes his gender to identify as a woman ‘so he can retire five years earlier’ in Argentina

Man legally changes his gender to identify as a woman ‘so he can retire five years earlier’ in Argentina, by Chris Pleasance.

An Argentinian tax worker who changed his gender on official documents after claiming to identify as female actually did it in order to retire earlier, a relative says. …

The relative told Informate Salta: ‘His conviction is that it is unfair that, because he is a man, he has to work five years more than a woman. …

Argentinian law allows any person to change their gender on identity documents to match their self-perception, without having to provide evidence of hormone treatment or gender reassignment surgery. …

Sergia has been in multiple heterosexual relationships including with the mother of her two children to whom she was married for 25 years.

She has never expressed an interest in men, and continued dating women even after registering for the change, the relative said.

Confronted by the statement, Sergia accused newspapers of printing lies and said the decision to change genders was personal.

‘The motivations are mine and I do not have to explain anything to anyone,’ he told the El Tribuno newspaper.

Ha ha ha. Sexist retirement rules anyway.
