Change Sex Overnight in New York With New Law

Beginning forty-three years ago in New York, if you wanted to change from being a man to a woman, or vice versa, you had to have sexual mutilation surgery, but with the new law supported by New York's new mayor, you can simply change the gender on your birth certificate for a small fee and some paperwork.
"It doesn't make sense that you can change your gender and name on every single form of identification, but not on your birth certificate. People need congruency."
-- Marco Wylie, 29-year-old transgender
Coming next in the battle for congruency:  Why limit the choices to just two (male and female)?

From "NYC Weighs Transgender Changes to Birth Record" by Deepti Hajela, Associated Press 11/10/14

[Transgender New Yorkers] and their advocates, at a hearing of the City Council's Health Committee, spoke in favor of the bill that would eliminate the [proof-of-surgery] requirement and, instead, authorize a health professional to provide an affidavit saying the record change is a more accurate reflection of the person's gender.

Eliminating the surgery requirement would put New York City, which issues its own birth certificates, in line with the state. California, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, D.C., also have removed surgery requirements.

Speakers at the hearing said that requiring proof of surgery is a burden on transgender people since not all decide to have surgery and not all can afford the expensive procedure. They said the requirement leaves many with a birth certificate that doesn't match their lives and sets them up for discrimination in instances when a birth certificate is required as proof of identification, such as some government programs.

From "U.S. transgender people welcome easier path to amend birth papers" by Jonathan Allen, Reuters 11/10/14

. . . thousands of transgender people across America have been forced into embarrassing encounters with bureaucrats, officials, landlords and others because of discrepancies with their documentation, according to transgender-rights advocacy groups.

In a 2008 survey of more than 7,000 transgender people, only 20 percent of trans women said they had had surgery to remove their penis and testes, and only 2 percent of trans men said they had had male genitals surgically created.

Some say they cannot afford the complex surgery. Many others . . . do not need or want it, finding hormone therapy sufficient. Besides the usual risks of major surgery, it leaves the person infertile, and some find the results less than satisfactory.

In 2010, the federal government began allowing transgender people to amend their passports regardless of anatomy. Last year, the American Psychiatric Association said it no longer considered being transgender a disorder.

From "De Blasio administration supports transgender bill" by Dan Goldberg, Capital New York 11/10/14

Testifying before the City Council's health committee on Monday, Gretchen Van Wye, an assistant city health commissioner, said the agency is “developing a robust outreach and implementation strategy,” for a law it expects to pass without significant opposition.

Councilman Corey Johnson's bill, co-sponsored by several other council members, would require supporting documentation that the request for a birth certificate change more accurately reflect the applicant's sex. That could come from either a physician, a doctoral level psychologist, a licensed clinical social worker, licensed master social worker, physician's assistant, nurse practitioner, marriage family therapist, mental health counselor or a midwife.

No one who spoke during Monday's Council hearing opposed the measure, a marked change from 2006 when the Board of Health proposed a similar measure. Back then, the proposal was withdrawn after concerns were raised by vital records experts. Doctors worried how to determine which patients could be roomed together and law enforcement officials were concerned about where to house prisoners.

From "Law Would Remove Surgery Requirement to Change Gender on Birth Certificate" by Jeff Mays, DNAinfo 11/11/14

Transgender individuals are already able to change their gender on documents such as a drivers license. But that can create problems when the gender on the birth certificate does not match other identification.

Everything from getting a passport to applying for a job and medical benefits is placed in jeopardy when gender designations on transgender people's documents do not match, advocates for the legislation said.

"Not having the gender marker restricts me from pursuing a decent career," said Tiffany Mathieu, a transgender woman.

"I get scrutinized and deliberately placed into situations that are uncomfortable and confounding when I apply for jobs."

Mathieu said she has been denied Medicaid and other forms of assistance because the "gender marker on my birth certificate didn't match my ID."

Michael Silverman, executive director of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, said many of the clients his group represents are in deep poverty, with 84 percent reporting an annual income of less than $20,000 and two-thirds receiving Medicaid or other forms of public assistance.
