Spain Makes It Easier To Legally Change The Gender

 The Parliament Of Spain's has given the last and final approval to a law allowing people over 16 to change their legally-recognised gender without any kind of medical evaluation.

This law was passed with the help of 191 votes in favour, while 60 votes were against, the final step in an extensive debate.

The procedure to change gender on their documents could in theory now take around 3 to 4 months.

There's Another important law passed on Thursday Feb 16, 2023 that includes paid menstrual leave for women suffering severe period pain.

Previously, people who wants to change Gender they needed a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria and to have been on hormonal treatment for 2 years and then they were able to change their gender on their ID cards.

Now, after getting approved this law they can identify as another gender and confirm it 3 months later. Those younger people whose age is between12 to 13 will need a judge's approval while, Whose age is 14 and 15 will need parental permission.

Before the vote, it was told by equality minister Irene Montero to the lawmakers that "trans people are not sick people, they are just people".

Outside the Congress she was pictured smiling after the law was passed, bringing a Twenty-month-long parliamentary debate to a close.

But the law was not universally welcomed. It was said by One protester, Patricia Bilbao, That: "We are here to support the rights of women as they are completely erasing us with these misogynist laws."

In 2014, Denmark was the 1st country of Europe to pass a similar law, and is 1of 9 countries in the continent that have adopted self-declaration systems.

Sweden, which in 1972 was the 1st to make gender transition legal at all, has recently restricted hormone treatment and mastectomies to those over the age 18.

The law means the Government will pay sick leave to those women's who are doing jobs and during job days they are suffering severe period pain, if they have a doctor's note.

It has been met with resistance, with the UGT trade union concerned that employers will favour hiring men than Women.
