Part of Spain’s feminist activism and the country’s socialist politicians join the parties of right and speak out against the “trans law” on gender self-determination. After discussions over the past two years, the final text of the bill proposes that Spaniards have “free determination of gender identity”.

“Trans people will no longer be considered sick in Spain”, announced the Spanish Minister of Equality, Irene Montero. The President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, celebrated for, according to him, having “preserved the balance between the rights of women and those of a collective as mistreated as the trans”.

For socialist deputy Angeles Alvarez, the law ” would jeopardize spaces reserved for women, tamper with sports statistics and results, allow men to escape punishment for violence against women, simply by changing their gender in the civil registry”. The legislator also warned of the risk of “making children and adolescents believe that the discomfort with gender stereotypes would have hormones and surgery as the only solution”.

The “trans law” bill is still going through the parliamentary process and should go to a reassessment of the Constitutional Court, at the request of the right-wing parties Popular and Vox.
