Spain Gets Even More Progressive

Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero

Finally a government has realized that a person’s gender is not determined by what is between their legs, and may change the law to reflect that reality. The government of Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero is backing a law that would allow transgender people to legally change their gender documents without undergoing sexual reassignment surgery.

This is the first law of its kind that we have heard about, and we think it is wonderful news, as it reinforces the notion that a person can be one gender while living with the parts of the other gender, and some are perfectly happy doing so without undergoing surgery that can be very expensive and disfiguring. Zapatero also legalized gay marriage in largely Catholic Spain almost immediately after taking office. We love him (and not just because of those sexy blue eyes).

      I wonder how you can welcome such nonsense. That may have the power to turn against you: if being M or F turns out out to be a simple matter of choice, then it may also be claimed that to be a homosexual is a matter of choice. You know it is not.
