The Silver Bo(X)
According to XXXora the Silver Bo(X) is "an art crusade headed for the UK Government, that calls for acknowledgement of the United Nations scathing report on the "torture" of Third Gender humans under current UK law. Presently systematic genital mutilation on babies born with ambiguous sexual organs who do not consent to this irreversible and barbaric "corrective" surgery is legal and is often carried out for purely cosmetic reasons. The Silver Bo(X) seeks equal human rights for these children and insists that each human should have the right to decide what genitals they have."
"The Silver Bo(X) also seeks recognition of a Third "Unisex" Gender in law by providing a third (X) ID box on all legal documents for those consenting to it. Whilst most people are born and identify as either male or female, others are born somewhere in the middle of this spectrum of sex with ambiguous sexual organs, but are then modified surgically and psychologically so that they adhere to the traditional and forced black and white mass gender binary, despite this going against their own nature, causing them unnecessary suffering and life long trauma. Unisex human beings are being systematically abused at present because under current UK law we are completely invisible. It is estimated that 1 in 2000 babies is born with ambiguous genitalia and many others being born with stereotypically male or female genitalia but being born with biological or chromosomal variance, so each day babies in this country are at risk of being genitally mutilated LEGALLY. No one chooses the body they are born into and no human being should be abused and discriminated against because of their biology. Human rights are not for the majority, they must be for everybody. We should all have the human right to identify according to our own instinct and nature. Androgyny isn't just fashion, Androgyny is a genetic reality because Unisex blossoms all around us in nature. If life has evolved from a single cell state via Darwinian Evolution, then our foundation and the core of our species is in fact Unisex and that legacy is shared by all because a combination of both Testosterone and Estrogen still runs through the veins of each and every single one of us today. We must listen to the United Nations who have labelled this modification as "torture". We must recognise Androgyny as an intrinsic facet of our species and of every species that has evolved into a predominantly separate sex state. If we do not change UK law and accept the scientifically proven spectral biodiversity of our own species, then we continue to live under a gender binary dictatorship, as we have done for thousands of years."
