Japanese court refuses to recognize trans woman as parent of child: Reports

Published

on

A Japanese court ruled Friday that only the child born before a trans woman went through her surgical and legal transition could be legally recognized as her child, while the child born after her transition could not be, the media said.

Japan, where many LGBTQ people still won’t come out to their families, requires anyone who wants to legally change their sexes to undergo surgery to remove the genitals they were born with, a practice that has been sharply criticized by human rights groups.
