Poll shows majority oppose under-18 gender change

54% of voters think those under the age of 18 should not be allowed to change their gender according to a new Behaviour & Attitudes poll for The Sunday Times. The poll found a mere 29% thought they should while the remaining respondents either didn’t know or had no opinion. The results of the poll run counter to the law as it stands which allows 16 and 17 year olds to change their gender after undergoing a medical evaluation if they have parental consent. The poll even more strongly opposes changes to the law proposed by the recent review of the 2015 Act governing gender changes which would allow under 16s to change their gender.
