...British birth certificates will deliberately be allowed to state inaccurate information. A woman with no biological connection with a child can be registered as its "father". The idea is to make lesbians feel comfortable. If one of them has a child, she can register the other as a parent. The child's father will not be registered at all.
If a birth certificate isn't to give accurate information, what is it for?
When a lesbian partnership breaks up and there is a battle over the custody of the child (yes, it has been known), will the victor be encouraged to put a new name, retrospectively, on the birth certificate? Will it not be regarded as "discrimination" if she cannot? And why stop at just one new name? This might become a serial process. And some ladies might like to register two or three new partners at once. Others might want a flexible approach with "optional parenting", registering a partner in order to assert the status of a relationship, but recognising that the lady concerned might grow to dislike the child and wish to abandon her "parent" status in due course.
Once the decision has been made to turn a birth certificate into a feelgood item for lesbians, then the possibilities are practically limitless.
What is happening to our country? Collective insanity, viewed with a mixture of inertia and bewilderment, makes for a very uncertain future.
But just think how busy lawyers will be in a few years' time, as the court cases mount up and people demand to know who their real parents are, why they have been stigmatised by a certificate, etc etc...
