A controversy that comes in full debate over the processing of the trans law promulgated by the Ministry of Equality of Irene Montero after the PSOE has asked together with the PP to extend the term to present partial amendments to this law in the Congress of Deputies.

The law promoted by Montero recognizes the “free determination of gender” without medical reports or treatment from the age of 14 and without parental consent or any limitation from the age of 16. In addition, minors under 12 years of age may change their sex in the registry.

The norm promoted by Irene Montero also establishes that, after “six months” from the registration of a change of sex, people may request to return to the mention of original sex. For the first rectification it will be enough to go to the registry. The second or successive ones will have to have judicial approval.

The government has ignored reports critical of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) and the council of state to continue with the process. The CGPJ warned that the law contains provisions that go against the fundamental right to equality contained in article 14 of the Constitution to the extent that they promote the “unwanted effect of generating situations of positive discrimination and, therefore, discrimination generally indirect of those people not contemplated in its subjective scope of application, especially significant with respect to non-transsexual women».

The Council of State, for its part, declared itself opposed to minors being able to change their sex in the registry without having a judicial report. According to this organization, the change of sex cannot be sustained “on the basis of a free decision of the person, not subject to any conditions” and minors must undergo an assessment by a judge, who verifies their “maturity to understand and evaluate the consequences of their decision” and looks after “their best interests”.

The Council of State also considers that, taking into account that “the change of sex has been affected by the principles of public order and unavailability” this process “should be subject to a series of conditions that ensure certain stability in the definition of sexual identity of the person”.
