The “Equality” legislation
Legislates gender ideology

The NSW “Equality” Bill normalises controversial gender ideology by introducing sex self-id and other controversial ideology through the NSW statute book.

The Bill introduces confusing and incoherent language into a large variety of NSW laws that will only make the law more confusing and unworkable.

URGENT: The “Equality Bill” is scheduled for a vote by August 16.

Here is a list of some of the Acts that are affect by these ideological changes:

  • the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977;
  • the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 1995;
  • the Court Security Act 2005;
  • the Crimes (Administration of Sentences) Act 1999; and
  • the Interpretation Act 1987.

The Bill seeks to eradicate sex-based language and distinctions in the NSW statute book. It also seeks to entrench controversial gender ideology within NSW law and NSW Government Department processes. Some of the ways that it seeks to do so are:

Allowing any person over 16 to register a change in their sex by statutory declaration

There would be no limit on the number of times or how quickly they would be able to make these changes. The change can be made without any medical or psychological treatment or assessment. Parental consent is not required. A child under the age of 16 can also apply to a Tribunal to change their sex without parental consent and without subsequent notification to their parents.

The so called “sex” that they can select must be a “sex descriptor” that they nominate. It could be male, female. Agender, genderqueer, non-binary and more.

Schools, hospitals, single-sex gyms and other institutions could be forced to treat the person according to their newly declared “sex”.

Removing the sex binary distinction from NSW laws

The Bill introduces the concept of “different sex” rather than opposite sex, implying that there are more than two sexes and creating confused and incoherent laws.

Allowing any man to self-identify as a woman and access female-only spaces

Allowing someone to change their legal sex whenever they wish will create an expectation that men should be ablte to access female only spaces, services, sports, prisons, bathrooms and refuges. Women have already been put at risk overseas in jurisdictions where these kinds of changes have already been made.

These changes will not benefit the NSW community. They will make the law confused and unworkable.

This Bill degrades the dignity of women and could make female-only spaces no longer places of refuge for vulnerable women.

These changes will also impact on those government employees with religious beliefs who are required to administer the provisions against the dictates of their conscience. For many, those procedures may be seen as requiring them to affirm views contrary to their deeply held beliefs. One leading example might be a public servant who objects to facilitating the registration of a child’s change of sex in the absence of parental consent. Such persons will be driven from the public service. This is a profound irony, given the Bill’s purported attempts to progress inclusion and diversity in the public service.

The Bill should be completely rejected.
