About one or two weeks ago a Dutch court decided that hermaphrodites (persons with a certain intersex condition) do not have to undergo medical procedures in order to get their preferred sex registration recognised. Anticipating the new gender recognition law and political statements of government,a general registral mistake law can indeed be used for this aim and not the (currently) archaic gender recognition law that requires sterilisation.
We have been instrumental in both the political statement and in the pointing the lawyer to the right grounds on which to act.
