Well, it won't change anything but over 1000 votes and so far 80% of those who votes are saying No to these new laws.

The Dublin liberal elite must be wondering why all the shyte on TV over recent weeks hasn't worked!

"Members of the LGBTQI+ community"

WTF? How many more letters are they going to add to this community? What the f*ck does the 'I' stand for?
Just put a 'W' at the end for 'Whatever you're having yourself'.

Intersex people face stigmatization and discrimination from birth, or from discovery of an intersex trait, such as from puberty. This may include infanticide, abandonment and the stigmatization of families.[13][14][15] Globally, some intersex infants and children, such as those with ambiguous outer genitalia, are surgically or hormonally altered to create more socially acceptable sex characteristics. However, this is considered controversial, with no firm evidence of favorable outcomes.[16] Such treatments may involve sterilization. Adults, including elite female athletes, have also been subjects of such treatment.[17][18] Increasingly these issues are considered human rights abuses, with statements from international[19][20] and national human rights and ethics institutions.[21][22] Intersex organizations have also issued statements about human rights violations, including the Malta declaration of the third International Intersex Forum.[23]

In 2011, Christiane Völling became the first intersex person known to have successfully sued for damages in a case brought for non-consensual surgical intervention.[24] In April 2015, Malta became the first country to outlaw non-consensual medical interventions to modify sex anatomy, including that of intersex people.[25][26]

The relationship of intersex to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans, and queer communities is complex,[116] but intersex people are often added to LGBT to create an LGBTI community. Emi Koyama describes how inclusion of intersex in LGBTI can fail to address intersex-specific human rights issues, including creating false impressions "that intersex people's rights are protected" by laws protecting LGBT people, and failing to acknowledge that many intersex people are not LGBT.[117] Organisation Intersex International Australia states that some intersex individuals are same sex attracted, and some are heterosexual, but "LGBTI activism has fought for the rights of people who fall outside of expected binary sex and gender norms."[118][119] Julius Kaggwa of SIPD Uganda has written that, while the gay community "offers us a place of relative safety, it is also oblivious to our specific needs".[120] Mauro Cabral has written that transgender people and organizations "need to stop approaching intersex issues as if they were trans issues" including use of intersex as a means of explaining being transgender; "we can collaborate a lot with the intersex movement by making it clear how wrong that approach is".[121]
All this early intervention on children that is being pushed is going to have serious repercussions down the line. Hate speech laws will just add to this, stopping people from trying to object to a lot of potential child abuse that is being promoted by misguided parents and supposed experts. But there is no one set of nomenclatures that can be agreed on regards the alphabet peoples. A Asexual/Allies, P Pansexual/Polygamous, Q Queer/Questioning, K Kink are others that can appear We know what LGBT means but here's what LGBTQQIAAP stands for

I think people are beginning to push back. Most people weren't too bothered by gay marriage, but this Trans thing - particularly its focus on children - seems to be getting a backlash. That's the sense I get from reading stuff online.
