    Lot's of congratulatory remarks on Twitter from Politicos but no real sense of what the passing of this bill means for Canadians.


    not working as a hyperlink for some reason so copy and paste if you're interested.

    It was kept pretty quiet via regular media.


    compelled speech?

    I personally have no problem referring to a Transwoman as she or a Transman as he. A non binary as they? ...i dk........maybe.

    People need to be careful not to conflate the 'Non Binary' movement which seeks to abolish gender for everyone, with the needs of Trans people who are adamant about the gender that they feel they are versus the gender to which they were born.

    How do Trans people feel about the Non Binary movement? Do they feel that gender is an essential part of their identity? ( i think most would strongly say yes. )
