Canadian ‘Gender Neutral’ Mother Wants Sex Omitted From Baby’s Birth Certificate

SLOCAN VALLEY, B.C. — A woman in British Columbia who identifies as “gender neutral” is asking the government to exclude sex information from her baby’s birth certificate so the child can decide later in life what he or she wants to be.

Kori Doty, who sports both earrings and facial hair, gave birth in November to a child that she named Searyl Atli. The baby was born at a friend’s home instead of the hospital, and Doty has not made known whether the baby is a boy or girl as she doesn’t wish to say either way.

“When I was born, assumptions were made, and I don’t want to make those same assumptions,” she told radio station CKNW. “I was assigned a gender at birth, and since I’ve grown up, I’ve discovered and learned that was incorrect.”

Doty said that she just wants the child to eventually make up their own mind about how they identify as “I’m not going to jump to any conclusions because of what is in their pants.” She believes that the psychological aspect of gender differs from the biological aspect.

Therefore, when Doty is out in public with Searyl and people ask what the baby is, she will reply that she doesn’t know yet.

“I’m raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are,” she told CBC News. “I’m recognizing them as a baby and trying to give them all the love and support to be the most whole person that they can be outside of the restrictions that come with the boy box and the girl box.”

Doty is involved with the Gender Free ID Coalition, whose motto is “The state has no business in the undies of the nation.” The group seeks to have sex markers removed from birth certificates altogether.

“[N]o one knows a baby’s gender at birth since gender identity takes years to be known,” the Coalition claims on its website. “The state knows it is certifying as true something it cannot know to be true.”

While officials in British Columbia agreed to Doty’s request to have the child’s health card marked with a “u” next to the sex marker, likely for “unassigned” or “unknown,” they will not issue a birth certificate without the identifying information. Doty has therefore applied for judicial review of the matter.

“Certainly, our culture is obsessed with [a baby is] a boy or a girl, but the government doesn’t have any business certifying that information when they don’t know it to be true,” her attorney, barbara findlay, who desires for her name to be without capital letters, told reporters. “[W]e know that the baby’s own gender identity will not develop for some years until after they’re born.”

In addition to seeking to have Searyl’s birth certificate genderless, Doty is also a part of a case before the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal as she wants her own birth certificate adjusted to remove any sex markings.

Word of the matter has generated a variety of public reaction, including much dismay.

“God decides the gender of a baby at conception, when life begins. We have no right to mess with that,” one commenter wrote.

“This mentally challenged person is going to pass off her sicknesses to this innocent child,” another remarked. “The government should NOT buy into this madness.”

“Doty, if you conceived and gave birth to the child, then NO amount of wishing or operations or procedures or [how much] politically correct support you get [will change the fact that] your DNA says you are female. It will NEVER change,” a third noted.

    No, it’s not YOUR birth certificate, and 99.99+% of the population do not adhere to the anti-science agenda that gender is a belief. As usual, the activists continue to abuse even their own kids to promote their agenda.

    “Doty is involved with the Gender Free ID Coalition,”

    That explains much.

    whose motto on its website is “The state has no business in the undies of the nation.”

    Yet they go to the state to advance their delusional agenda.

      And hurt children by establishing deadly falsehood. Satan is after the children.
      May God intervene in Canada.

    Might as well reject citizenship and race while she/he/it is screwing up the life of this beautiful child gift from God in order to make a statement. God, our Creator assigns gender, doctors just acknowledge the gender. How a person deals with their gender later in life is their business.

    Gender is unequivocally tied to genitalia. Truth, unwavering, eternal.

    The great Delusion continues to spread.

    Come LORD Jesus, come!

      It’s tied to the whole cells and also is spirititual, not just physical and mental. Woman does not have spiritual authority over man according to the creation order.

      What is your evidence for this (other than the fact that you can state it emphatically)?

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        this is where YOUR law is going ………. pedophilia ……. and it can be stated emphatically ….. when those in charge of the law cannot agree on this simple principle ….. children should not marry ………. no matter who consents ………..

        Effort to bar child marriage in California runs into opposition…

        A Bay Area legislator was shocked when he learned from a young constituent that while Californians cannot legally consent to sex until they are 18, they can — with the permission of a parent and a judge’s order — get married at any age, even if their spouse is many years older.

        “I thought, that can’t be true in California,” said state Sen. Jerry Hill, a Democrat from San Mateo. “We found that it is true in California and true in many states throughout the country.”

        But Hill’s resulting proposal to bar juveniles from getting hitched has been watered down after it prompted strong objections from civil rights groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union.

        As the emotional fight unfolds in Sacramento, there’s no agreement even about a basic piece of information — how many minors get married each year in California. People who want to limit such marriages say the total is in the thousands, while those who oppose the bill say that’s vastly inflated.

        The state doesn’t keep such numbers, and even efforts to change that are running into resistance.

          I’m sorry, is there some point to all this?

    Stop the insanity.

    You don’t “identify” as your gender. You are, biologically, your gender.
    Male or Female. Nothing more, nothing less. Pick the one you are.
    (significantly less than 0.1% of the population is affected by anomalous aberrations such as androgen insensitivity syndrome or intersex/hermaphrodism both of which are medical/biological conditions).

    He is a father, not mother. Canada’s liberalism is far more problematic than this man for the Canadian children. Children have rights to live out the objective truth since birth.

    ” For this reason God gave them up vile passions. For even their women EXCHANGED the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the women, burned in there lust for one another, men with men committing what is SHAMEFUL, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which is due. And even as they did not like to ratain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a DEBASED mind, to do those things which are not fitting” Romans 1:26-28 Saddly to say we are living in this scripture today. MARRANATHA!!

    Lets NOT mess with Birth Certificates ! If you want to raise your little boy as a girl and then later castrate him, that’s up to you, but let’s not mess up Genealogy and Genealogical records which record who the real parents were and the BIRTH sex of everyone involved. GENDER IS NOT A “BELIEF SYSTEM” or a “SOCIAL CONSTRUCT” ! IT IS A REALITY ! Thinking that you can choose your sex at will and modify it with a scalpel and some hormone treatments, is a delusion and a mental aberration !!!

  • RaggedClaws

    Not all children are born with clearly identifiable sexual organs. In those cases, it is very possible that the doctors will choose the “wrong” sex for the child who later in life will seek to become the “right” sex for him or her.
