Hi Maartje and Francine! I'm confident more Dutch women will follow.

Oh this is great! I have been looking for this.

I am Needagin on Twitter and I live in Belgium (Antwerp).

Can we extend the Dutchery to the Benelux in general? ;-) My mum is Dutch if that helps, and I would describe my Dutch as semi-fluent (I read and speak it pretty well).

I lived in NL between 2000- 2006 (in Rotterdam & Den Haag).

Thank you.

As someone who is very much a DSL person, I have had trouble searching and finding information on self-ID in NL and Belgium.

Belgium -along with Malta (and possibly NL?) - is a country which is often cited as already having self-ID. I am curious to know how this works in practice, and if, for example, I have any rights should I happen upon a peen- brandisher in the women's changing room at the Basic Fit. Can any Dutch speaker direct me to an explainer of the law as it currently stands in Belgium (and NL). I can read Dutch reasonably OK (eg I read newspapers in Dutch but would be too lazy to read a novel, as that would be slow-going for me).

I am also interested in any examples of this law having caused distress or abuse to women, since it was passed.

Dutch law has (a sort of) self ID since 2014.
They need an expert declaration from a doctor or a shrink. Self ID is the leading factor.
With this declaration they can change their legal sex very easily in the Townhouse (Gemeentehuis).
Minimum age is 16.

Thanks. I see that some need for a subjective expert signature is retained, but yes, from my understanding of the wording the doctor or psych is certainly under pressure to sign. Also no specified time spent living as the opposite sex is mentioned?

I wonder if the Belgian law is similar.

Luxembourg just passed self-ID legislation in July, without public consultation. Most people are unaware of it.
