Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Social Protection
General Scheme of Gender Recognition Bill 2013: Discussion (Resumed)
Mr. Marco Perolini:
With regard to age restrictions, why not take inspiration from the legislation in Argentina? There can be conflicts between parents and their children in this area. In some instances, the best interest of the child does not correspond with the parents’ wishes. The legislation should have a provision to deal with this conflict. For example, the Argentinean model is quite interesting in this area because it provides for a light judicial system to address these conflicts.
