First, the law in Sweden needs to be explained. Since Sweden is one of your typical socialist boondoggle countries within Europe that wants to take care of you and control you from cradle to grave it has a very specific set of rules for changing your gender marker. Now the gender marker these people are talking about is their birth certificate "gender" marker which was always one's sex until John Money and his crowd managed to obfuscate the difference.
Under Swedish law on order to have your gender marker changed, also know as birth certificate, you need to have undergone a sex change. They also require that the individuals cannot be married nor can they MTF store sperm or the FTM store eggs for later use. Those are the requirements for both SRS and change of birth certificate on the State dime.
Now, even I would support the changing of the law to allow them to save sperm and eggs and to stay married but then Sweden does not have same sex marriage if I remember correctly which is also part of the problem. Both of these concepts give me the creeps personally, but in my opinion they are certainly no harm, no foul kinds of conditions and should be amended. The problem is and always has been that that was and is not the case here. The case here is men want to keep their penis and still have their gender marker changed. It is that simple.
So in order to attempt to push this argument they have come up with this forced sterilization argument which is silly but one needs to understand the history of Sweden which is far from glowing in regards to sterilization. Being such a good socialist bastion the Swedish government has always felt they know what is best for their citizenry and did perform forced sterilizations from 1935 until 1975 under government auspices. The forced sterilizations were forced upon primarily Roma and Traveler women, gypsies for the uninformed. I will leave it to the reader to infer where those practices emanated from but it is pretty clear.
The Roma and Traveler women rightfully won a legal battle for compensation from Sweden and now these loons are trying to equate themselves to the horrors these gypsies underwent. The gypsies were forcibly sterilized against their wills to prevent more children from being born and almost all sterilization was against women since no self respecting man would sterilize a fellow male. It sort of reminds me of how ashen my husband got when I informed him the male Siberian was headed to the vet to be neutered. You would have thought I was sending him.
The individual that writes this blog is not exactly the brightest light in the string since she contends it is nothing less than "genocide". When dealing with mental midgets definitions are required so here goes.
Genocide is "the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group"This is your typical "trans" action where they try and equate the rights of transvestites and non-ops with those of a previously harmed group where there is absolutely no correlation whatsoever. You know the fools that claim racism with "trans rights" and a sundry list of other past transgressions they use to blind the uninformed into supporting their patriarchal view of the world where male rights circumvent any rights women have.
In their musings they carefully avoid mentioning that the sterilization they are talking about is actually "Sex Reassignment Surgery" which is NOT forced sterilization and is paid for by the state for those individuals that follow the rules. For most people born transsexual the concept of getting SRS paid for is fine because that is what they want and there are ways around other parts of the law such as sperm and egg storage and marriage which I believe is where they have a fight, but that again is not the fight they want.
This is again a fight to redefine what it means to be female and a woman. It is nothing short of an assault or a war on women primarily by men who want to play girl but not be girl and certain women that want to be men but would like to keep the options open. It is just another example of gender games and these fools mention gender variant as those being forcibly sterilized which is patently absurd.
These people are walking adverts for the people that believe being born transsexual is NOT a medical condition. They are harmful in so many ways it ton those born transsexual needing SRS because they come across stating categorically that SRS is NOT necessary to be a female or a woman and that is what they want the world to know and believe.
The case is without merit because it is voluntary and the Swedish government has the right to set the rules for when and how their socialized medicine will pay for SRS. Changing the provisions of the law that require the individual to not save sperm and eggs and to divorce their spouse could be fought and probably should be fought but as I have stated that is absolutely not what this is about.
The problem is people in general are uniformed in today's world and they see "forced sterilization" and it scares them because it is a nasty concept. if they read a little they would realize it is all a ruse but people are kind of lazy and splashy headlines rule the media world. It is no coincidence that the few remaining papers in print are primarily scandal sheets with few exceptions particularly here in the United States.
If you have a sex change you are sterilized because that is how it works. MTF get a vagina and FTM have a hysterectomy and hopefully can afford a penis but the entire concept is changing sex and women do not father children and men do not get pregnant except in the "trans" world where they consider themselves "special".
So if you read about this issue be sure to remember what the truth is behind it.
