    Yeh... not an incredibly large human rights violation or anything.

    Who said the Nazis were made powerless after WW2? They're doing just fine in continental Europe.

    Funny thing; we can force sterilize transgendered people who have done NOTHING wrong, but we can't force sterilize rapists and the like. You go world.

    Wow that's absolutely disgusting, it was not something you would expect from a western nation.

    While I particularly find it hard understanding transgender people's views, these people have done absolutely nothing wrong and for some they have no control if they are transgender or not.

    I guess that's one way to get them to leave your country.

    I've been reading alot of the online news like aftonbladet and expressen while working and it's been all over the place so you might wanna update your newsflow a litte bit.
    OT: It's sick that we're still living with this kind of close minded goverment running the joint, allthough it's mostly because of one political party in question, not gonna name or shame but not that hard to find who the culprits are.

    Amen to that.

    While i agree this is a violation of human rights... i would just like to point out...
    Sweden currently requires transgender people to undergo sterilisation before they see their gender officially recognised.
    I read that as: transgenders are only required forced sterilisation to be OFFICIALLY recognised as a sex other then they were born. If they dont care what some piece of paper says... there is no problem (especially as same sex marriage is legal in sweden).

    This could be viewed/done as a way to prevent perverts from simply dressing as the opposite sex to gain access to sex restricted areas (wash rooms, locker rooms, ect). To protect law enforcements ability to enforce. To protect other people's rights.

    Like it was mentioned in the article Sweden clearly violates the European human rights laws.

    Question is, can Sweden be subject to an indictment by the European Court of Human Rights or will this simply slide under the radar as this can't be seen as a big issue?

    for many, the main goal is to "blend in". lars larson the tall hot blonde chick with M on their drivers license is gonna attract some attention.

    Actually North Carolina was recently in the news for doing that very thing through the 70's-80's
