German Cabinet Approves New Law Enabling 14 year-olds To Change ‘Gender Identity’ Over Parental Objection

German Cabinet Approves New Law Enabling 14 year-olds To Change ‘Gender Identity’ Over Parental Objection

“The new rules allow minors 14 years and older to change their name and legal gender … if (parents) don’t agree, teenagers could ask a family court to overrule them.” Approval of new law by parliament still required.

Germany’s socialist-led government has approved a new law making it easier for minors to legally change their gender — even against the wishes of their parents.

Under the so-called “self-determination law,’ children as young as 14 can themselves decide to change their ‘gender identity’ and name. Parents could be dragged to court, if they disagree.

“The new rules allow minors 14 years and older to change their name and legal gender with approval from their parents or guardians; if they don’t agree, teenagers could ask a family court to overrule them,” the Associated Press noted.

The opposition Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party is bitterly opposed to giving courts the power to overrule the parents. “The AfD wants to looking into “constitutional measures” [to overturn] the reform. The [party] considers  it an encroachment on the parents’ right to raise as laid down in the Basic Law [Germany’s equivalent of constitution] if family courts were to decide on the gender change in case of minors,” the public broadcaster Tagesschau reported.

Germany’s state-owned DW TV reported the details of the proposed law:

German Family Minister Lisa Paus said a new law easing the path for individuals to officially change their gender had been approved by the Cabinet on Wednesday, hailing it as “a big moment” for transgender and intersex people.

The proposed “Self-Determination Act” allows for changes to be made in a simple procedure at government registry offices.

Paus said the reform served “to protect minorities who have been discriminated against for a long time and is socio-political progress.”

Under current rules, individuals must submit two psychological reports to change the entries with a district court making the final decision. People who have gone through the process have complained that it is lengthy, costly and humiliating.

“Everyone has a right to the state respecting their gender identity,” Justice Minister Marco Buschmann said. “The current law harasses transgender people. We want to end this undignified situation.”

For children under 14, the parents would submit the necessary declaration to the registry office. Young people aged 14 and over can do this themselves, but only with the consent of their parents. A family court would resolve conflicts within the family.

The reform would also prevent a person’s previous gender from being revealed against their will, under the threat of a fine.

New Law Goes After ‘Deadnaming’ and ‘Misgendering’

While the German law itself does not ban ‘deadnaming’ or ‘misgendering,’ it apparently makes it a criminal offense to in some cases to mention a person’s previous gender or name. There is reportedly a heavy fine for ‘researching’ someone’s gender history without their consent.

“The proposal does mention a maximum fine of up to €10,000, but not for deadnaming or misgendering someone,” the French TV channel Euronews explained. “It’s actually for maliciously disclosing confidential information such as revealing someone’s previously assigned gender against their will.”

“According to the website of the German Ministry for Family Affairs, a person’s previously assigned gender should not be revealed or researched without the person’s consent,” the TV network added.

Under former Chancellor Angela Merkel, Germany legalized the ‘third gender.’ The law passed in 2018 allowed people to declare their gender as ‘diverse,’ or other than male or female. The move was cheered by the woke left and the mainstream media. “Germany’s third gender law is celebrated as a revolution,” the CNN reported. But they still complained that this wasn’t enough, lobbying for children to be allowed to determine their gender.

Convince me this is not an organized effort towards depopulation.

    Okay: this will not result in “depopulation” of the Muslim population taking over Europe; to the contrary, it’ll actually speed up the process.

    Marxists know the way to absolute power is to deconstruct society by destroying the family unit.

    They want children, but want total control over the minds and spirit of those children.

      These Marxists at the same time are the dumbest people on the planet because they are inviting millions of followers of Islam into Germany.

      Those of Islamic faith are not going to let their family units be destroyed. The Marxists could soon find it’s them that has zero power and Germany is Islamic.

    Of white people

      No, I think it’s way more indiscriminate than that. They didn’t give the vax to just white people. They don’t trans only white kids. They’re not destroying the infrastructure of only white people (e.g., Sri Lanka preceded Denmark).

Sie sind verruck.

So much for my high school German.

What could go wrong?

Well then, hope they can vote, drive vehicles, join military, sign contracts, marry, buy property and of course work full time jobs.

    And don’t forget, be subject to the rules of law for adults. No juvenile courts or sentencing for criminals 14 and over.

    Will the parents have the right to disinherit, evict, and otherwise cut off a child who changes gender or name over their objections? Will a family court functionally emancipate said child?

    Absolutely. Add in automatic emancipation of that minor child and make provision to treat them as legal adults in every sense. Either they are mature, wise and emotionally stable enough to make life altering decisions or they are not. Pick one.

I thought they got rid of fascism in 1945? Guess not.

Holy Weinersnatchall, Batman.

Should have interesting implications for the Bundeswehr.

And just like that, for no reason what so ever, the folks elected a mercurial demigod as PM promising a pure culture in a cleansed homeland with strong families, economic growth, military rearmament, purged of corruption by outsiders.

For no reason what so ever….

“Under the so-called “self-determination law,’ children as young as 14 can themselves decide to change their ‘gender identity’ and name.”

So besides changing their name and gender on their legal documents does this also mean that they will be able to receive “gender affirming care”? You know, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and gender altering surgery? Seems to be the sickening logical next step for those that advocate for the mutilation of children.

Politically mandated emancipation of minor children so government agents and non-government organizations can legally prescribe drugs and perform elective and irreversible sex organ surgery operations on 14 year old children.

AfD can block the insanity.

Hitler is rolling in his ash heap

But isn’t it interesting that they didn’t collect that ash heap for further study, like they do most things, save tissue for decades , analyze bones from ghumdreds of thousands of years

And yet, we took as truth what the Nazis fin the bunker told us that Hitler and Eva shot them selves, and were burnt down to ashes

That’s a hell of a fire

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to gonzotx. | September 2, 2023 at 11:42 pm

    In those days they did not have the forensic tools we have now, nor did they dream of them. It is my understanding, and somewhere around here I have a book that gives the details, the Russians took Hitler’s remains from where he was burned. They cross checked the skull with his dental records and they matched. Around 2020 after hassle they allowed a French researcher a piece of the skull and some of the teeth, and he confirmed the ID with modern methods. I don’t have the details at hand, but they are findable. Hope this helps.

      Thanks, but there are samples collected from past diseases, guess from corpses, I’m not sure the process, but were taken by insightful people decades and more ago, and stored till the time an invention

      But at least the Russians did what you said and thanks again for information

      The Russians lost 7 million people and were marching for
      blood no doubt

      Of course they killed millions of their own people

    Forensic archeology of the communist politbureau is difficult, but not impossible. There’s evidence that the ‘burned to ashes in Berlin’ was communist propaganda to deter any of the nazi faithful from clinging to hope that dear leader would rise again, like Napoleon escaped from Elba to fight again. However, that does not mean little mustache man and wife were not dead. There’s evidence the communists hauled away the burnt corpses to deep inside mother Russia and scattered the remains so that no memorial or monuments could be erected in memorial. Still, the boys from Brazil mythology persisted.

    Who the butthurt down votes this stuff?

A poll out says Germany is one of the best counties don’t the planet. In living memory, they started a war.
