Withholding money for a family member's gender transition can be considered abuse according to new UK guidance

Family members who withhold money for gender transition or refuse to use preferred pronouns could be considered “abusive,” according to UK guidance, making them susceptible to prosecution. 

“Although not an exhausted list, some examples of how trans and non-binary people may be abused by intimate partners or family members include … Withholding money for transitioning [and] refusing to use their preferred name or pronoun,” according to the UK’s Code for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) used when considering domestic abuse offenses.

Former prosecutor and legal counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom UK, Jeremiah Igunnubole, said the new rules will put the police force and government officers “in the intensely difficult and inappropriate position of making politicised judgements against parents.”

  • He also said the guidance will only further confuse the public and prosecutors because it fails to acknowledge that there is no legal obligation for anyone to use someone’s “preferred pronouns” and that parents have the primary responsibility for the development and upbringing of their children as protected by international law.

    “This is the latest misstep in a trend towards guidance which fails to give adequate weight to fundamental freedoms of speech, of conscience, of religion and more,” Igunnubole said. 

    “The list is not exhaustive and should be used as guidance, when considering appropriate charges in line with our legal test,” the spokesperson continued.
