TechCrunch’s Sam Sifton explains what this means for children who might not know how to use a computer.
What’s happening now is that the “sex education” legislation has been put forward in the legislature as part of the 2016 budget.
It was originally passed by the Liberal-National coalition and is currently being debated in the Senate.
While the government is calling it the “Sex Education Act”, it is actually a law that has been in place for decades.
The law was first passed in 1966 and is one of the most comprehensive in the world, with more than 40 different gender and sexual orientations in the law.
Its main objective is to ensure that young people understand and respect gender and sexuality in a safe, inclusive and inclusive environment.
In addition to providing information to young people, the law also gives schools and other educational institutions the right to refuse services to pupils who are not in accordance with their gender identity.
Some of the changes that have been made to the law are as follows:Children who identify as transgender will now have the right of access to gender reassignment surgery at a cost of $1,500, a move that has caused concern for parents and schools.
Students who want to change gender will no longer have to take a formal assessment at school or the age of 16.
All schools in Victoria will now be required to allow students to transition in their private schools, instead of in the public school system.
The law also allows for gender-neutral restrooms to be built on private property.
Children will also be able to apply for special school places, meaning their gender will be recognised as being different from the gender they identify with, rather than as a binary.
And if they want to be able wear a female or male outfit at school, they will be able.
Despite the changes, the bill still has some way to go to being law.
It is likely to be passed by Parliament in the first quarter of 2021.
