AND I THOUGHT banning transgenders from flights in Canada was ridiculous. Things are a little more frightening in Europe.
Earlier this year, the Swedish parliament voted not to repeal a 1972 law that forces sterilization and divorce on transgender individuals seeking to change their gender on legal documents. The news was shocking not just because of the vote, but because many citizens were not aware the law even existed. Particularly in Sweden, generally considered to be a “gay-friendly” country with one of the highest rates of support for same-sex marriage in the world.
