I Support

I support this petition.

-Some transgendered persons choose not to have surgery.

-Some transgendered persons cannot afford surgery.

-Court paperwork can be convoluted.

-Medical professionals and psychological professionals are much better equipped to make decisions about gender identity than court personnel.

-Mental health costs and suicide rates rise when transgendered persons are unable to navigate society as easily as cisgendered persons.

This petition makes sense.
