Gender doesn’t belong on birth certificate, says Saskatoon Mom of… Uh… uniquely dressed son

A Saskatoon mom has filed a human rights complaint over the province’s requirement for sex to be listed on birth certificates.

“I think it’s premature to identify a gender for someone (in infancy),” Fran Forsberg said in an interview. “Who are we to say what a person’s gender is?” Forsberg’s six-year old daughter Renn was born male, but around the age of three began to express herself as a girl. Renn had started showing self-destructive behaviour, but that ceased when she began “gravitating to what society says (are) female clothes,” Forsberg said.
