Victory In Taiwan: MTF Trans Couple Abbygail and Jiyi Wu's Marriage is reinstated

In a historic reversal the Taiwanese government has reversed a earlier ruling invalidating this transgender couple's marriage.

The Sun Daily reports: in what was hailed as a "benchmark" ruling, Taiwan's Ministry of the Interior on Wednesday decided that the marriage status of Abbygail Wu, 27, and her 29-year-old partner Jiyi Wu remained legal.

Abbygail graciously gave planetransgender a interview while the couples fate was still unknown. It was her suggestion that the article be titled Can The Taiwanese Gov't Revoke A Marriage With A Letter? It was a wonderful experience for me to learn first hand from these two young people what love means to them and a joy to be in some small way a contributor to what the WSJ described as a important component to this victory.

Abbygail and Jiyi Wu's struggle to love has transcended national boundaries lending their humanity to the realization that trans people worldwide belong together in one community.

While some see this as a leap forward for marriage equality not everyone is so optimistic according to the WSJ
Taiwan’s LGBT rights groups caution that the case does not signal that conservative Taiwan is ready to rewrite its marriage law yet.

“Protection of marriage and the right to marry is part of basic human rights, which means the decision was delayed justice but nothing groundbreaking,” said Chien Chih-chieh, the secretary-general of Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights.

The case, in fact, shows the government is still unwilling to budge from the current regulation that states a marriage can take place only between a man and a woman, she said.

The only silver lining, she said, is that the public and the government seem more willing to discuss the issue, which gives the group hope that a bill on recognizing same-sex marriages they plan to pitch to the legislature in September may meet less resistance.


Men are born, were given gender was male or female, but a group of people, they were unable to identify with their physiological sex, long ­ unease, pain, even for the sex change operation, the group called the "transgender"!

On My Honor As a Bisexual Transsexual Life Boy Scout

Boy Scout Oath:

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

As a youth I honored my promises most of the time, I am human after all. But like Jennifer Tyrrell, the Ohio Mom who was booted from Scouts for being a lesbian the Scouts obviously don't think so.

Which law or promise am I not adhering to? My guess is the Scouts think I'm not straight after all I keep myself physically strong and stay mentally awake, there's just too many pitfalls not to, but morally straight?

That was the one that used to cause me so much internalized dysfunction antagonizing over often I would become less than aware of my circumstances. And with all the internal struggle over my morality I would oven forgo exercising both my body and consciousness letting my morals degenerate untill eventually I ended up in a drug induced downward spiral for a century until....

I started regaining my senses and recovering my life, doing good deeds without reward, making a effort to become closer to my creator, exercising my mind and regaining my moral fiber until one day I had a epiphany!

IT's OK to Be a bisexual transgender woman! Its Ok to welcome your femininity! In fact, there is everything right about making the transition. It is the process that has made me morally straight.

But sadly the fellow scouts who I encounter are shocked to hear a woman recounting those happy days fishing, canoeing, and yes sharing tents with other boy scouts.

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight, Bisexual Transsexual Life Scout.
