Nobody has the right to have their “gender identity” affirmed by law.
Svetlana Voreskova

There cannot be an inalienable right to have one’s gender or sex or sexuality affirmed by law.

Otherwise, this right would have to be granted to everyone, regardless of their gender, sex or sexuality.

Sooner or later, the talk wouldn’t be about gay or trans people.

A line has to be drawn somewhere.

If there are going to be ‘affirmations,’ they have to be on a pragmatic, case-by-case basis.

Not on rights.

Rights, as Bentham said, are a nonsense.

And absolute rights are nonsense on stilts.
