New laws in NSW are to allow for two mums to be listed on birth certificates.
Two Mums? No, that is not possible. No amount of legislation can alter that.
The concept of a birth certificate is easy to understand.
Here’s how it works, we all have one mother and one father. In a birth certificate context there is no way of changing that. Even if our biological parents are embarrassing it doesn’t alter the fact that birth certificate wise that are your parents.
Issues with parents doesn't change anything.
They are still your biological parents. Not that you have to refer to them as such in the sense of who actually raised you. Adoptive parents who do have real input into a child's upbringing cannot be listed on the birth certificate as such as they are not the biological parents and a birth certificate is supposed to list your biological parents and your gender at the time of birth
I can’t change who my biological parents if I want to. To claim someone else other than my biological parents are my ‘parents’ on a birth certificate would be false.
By means of adoption you can have other people be your parents and it is fair to say that they deserve some recognition even to the point of being recognised officially as a parent should the couple raising the child separate but a birth certificate is supposed to show who your genetic parents are, genetics is the key here, not who actually raised you.

Children as young as five should be taught to understand the pleasures of gay sex, according to leaders of a taxpayer-funded education project.
Heads of the project have set themselves a goal of 'creating primary classrooms where queer sexualities are affirmed and celebrated'.
The ambition was revealed in documents prepared for the No Outsiders project run by researchers from universities and backed with £600,000 of public money provided by the Economic and Social Research Council.
Children as young as five should be taught about gay sex, an education project has said.
The stated purpose of the project - which is operating in 14 primary schools - is to stop bullying and prejudice aimed at homosexuals.
However, at a seminar at Exeter University tomorrow, supporters of the group will go beyond the anti-bullying agenda and discuss 'pleasure and desire in educational contexts'.
A document prepared for the seminar and couched in convoluted academic jargon says: 'The team is concerned to interrogate the desexualisation of children's bodies, the negation of pleasure and desire in educational contexts, and the tendency to shy away from discussion of (sexual) bodily activity in No Outsiders project work.

They claim they are about the desexualisation of children’s bodies but when you talk about sex acts and the pleasure of them you aren’t desexualising anything. Simon Calvert of the Christian Institute said: 'When an adult who is working in a primary school suggests that children should explore their sexuality, that should result in a complaint to the police.'
