The U.S. Department of State is pleased to use the occasion of Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month to announce its new policy guidelines
regarding gender change in passports and Consular Reports of Birth Abroad.
Beginning June 10, when a passport applicant presents a
certification from an attending medical physician that the applicant has
undergone appropriate clinical treatment for gender transition, the passport
will reflect the new gender. The guidelines include detailed information about
what information the certification must include. It is also possible to obtain a
limited-validity passport if the physician’s statement shows the applicant is in
the process of gender transition. No additional medical records are required.
Sexual reassignment surgery is no longer a prerequisite for passport issuance. A
Consular Report of Birth Abroad can also be amended with the new gender.
As with all passport applicants, passport issuing officers at
embassies and consulates abroad and domestic passport agencies and centers will
only ask appropriate questions to obtain information necessary to determine
citizenship and identity.
The new policy and procedures are based on
standards and recommendations of the World Professional Association for
Transgender Health (WPATH), recognized by the American Medical Association as
the authority in this field.
Besides making this announcement during a perverse celebration of anal intercourse between men and child molestation, yes, NAMBLA is part of the Pink Mafia, the Obama Regime has no legal basis to do this. Sex is determined by genetics and no amount of mutilation and silicon can change one's sex. Too bad Blackfive et. al. does not understand such as this will now be a part of the U.S. military.
