Canberra teens can defy parents on birth certificates, according to Canberra Times 24 July 2020 and ACT Legislation Register 13 August 2020.
Teenagers in the ACT can now apply to have the sex recorded on their birth certificates changed, without the consent of a parent or guardian. Teenagers aged 16 and over can apply directly for themselves. Children from the ages of 12 to 15 can apply to the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) for permission to have their birth certificate changed if their parent or guardian will not support them. ACAT would then assess if the children were capable of making the decision to have their birth certificate altered.

Editorial Comment: Changing a birth certificate is legalising a lie. A birth certificate is a historical document that records what happened, as seen by the witnesses who were there. No government or administrative tribunal has the power or authority to change history.
