Germany’s top court rules that a transsexual woman can’t be registered as a mother after her frozen sperm was used to fertilise an egg

Germany’s top court has ruled that a transsexual woman whose frozen sperm was used to fertilize an egg can only be registered as the child’s father.

The Federal Court said Thursday it rejected the woman’s appeal against a lower court ruling preventing her from being legally listed as the child’s mother.

She changed sex in 2012 and her partner gave birth to a child three years later, having used the plaintiff’s sperm.

    Let have no laws or standards at all. About anything.

    Honestly I would prefer that the German judiciary be working on prosecution, sentencing, and deportation of criminal immigrants, deportation of fake refugees, and ruling against unlimited immigration by the government.

    Wow, a logical, sane, court ruling.
    So when does the appeal start?

      I know and especially in Europe of all places, yet this is a ruling one would not find in Canada.

    I have a lot of sympathy for Trans, and have very close Trans friends. But biology is biology. Donating sperm is an essentially male thing. The birth certificate might as well say “Sperm Donor” and “Uterus Provider.” We call those Father and Mother.

      Ahem! May I ask – in a general sense – where you live? To have “very close Trans friends”, you must either live very close to a Trans community of some sort, I would imagine. I have never seen a representative of this 0.01 % of the population among the crowds I encounter at, say, my local Costco. So I’m wondering how you managed to befriend several Trans persons.

        I live in Chicagoland. It’s a big metropolitan area. And maybe I hang with an odd crowd. Most of the ones I’ve known were decent people, but there was an exception or two.

      I suppose all depends on what you mean by having a lot of sympathy for Trans, but personally I do not and am not ashame to state so. No, I do not advocate killing them, but I do advocate getting them mental health treatment. Still they remain a much smaller minority than the MSM would have us believe. I have enough trouble accepting guys with earrings or a pierced nose.

      • Manual Paleologos

        There is no mental health therapy that has shown any sign of success. The closest is “Aversion Therapy,” where they harass and attempt to brainwash the subject into avoiding the target behavior. It’s a form of brainwashing, similar to that practiced by NORK on our POWs. It has been outlawed for use on minors in several states. It tends to drive people to suicide.

    WHAT! You can’t bring science int it? that doesn’t support the agenda.

    I can’t believe a German court handed down that ruling. Unbelievable.

    For once, sanity prevails.

    Once you start twisting facts or acting on a false interpretation of reality, countless problems will pop up and every answer rooted in your twisted understanding of reality will only make things worse (look up the Ptolemaic theory of planet motions for a nice example).
    Biology doesn’t care if you call (or “make”) a man a woman, that person will still be a biological man (“it’s the chromosomes, stupid”).
    The initial flaw was denying that reality. The second flaw was acting on a consequence of that denial.
    Yes, I think the court has brought the right decision (otherwise they’d have had to say that a man can be a mother, an obvious nonsense, right?)
    You can’t have your cake and eat it too—once you decided to become a “woman,” you can’t carry over anything (like your earlier sperm donation) from your male past.
