Petition for trans rights in Germany

Content warning: German trans politics (click or activate to expand post)

Just wanted to let you all know there was this petition here, basically aiming to abolish the outdated TSG (Transsexuellengesetz, "transsexual law") in favour of a more modern self-determination law. As currently, legal name and gender changes are extremely expensive (1000€ and above due to the requirement of two evaluations by mental health professionals) and time-intensive (about a year), this would be a huge step forward. You can also sign if you are not a German citizen, in which case, a translator like DeepL might help you to determine what exactly you are signing.
