A father, René Salinas Ramos, 47, legally changed his gender to female to help him gain custody of kids

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that A father, René Salinas Ramos, 47, legally changed his gender to female to help him gain custody of kids. 


A father has legally changed his gender identification in an attempt to gain custody of his two young daughters following a bitter split from his wife.

René Salinas Ramos, 47, is now listed as female on official documents in his native Ecuador — despite the fact he still identifies as a cisgender male in his everyday life.

The desperate dad claimed he made the drastic decision due to the justice system in his country which he said typically benefits mothers in custody cases.

“Being a father in this country, Ecuador, is punished and I’m only seen as a provider,” Ramos told local outlet La Voz del Tomebamba. “What I have been looking for is to give the love and protection that a mother can give her children.”

Ramos alleged that his daughters currently live in an abusive environment with their mother — and claimed he hasn’t seen his children in more than five months.

“The laws say that the one who has the right is the woman. As of this moment, I am female. Now I’m also a mom, that’s how I consider myself,” Ramos told media assembled outside the city of Cuenca’s Civil Registry office on Dec. 30. “I am very sure of my sexuality. What I have sought is that I want to be a mother, so that I can also give the love and protection of a mother.”

“This man’s private matter, to obtain custody of his daughters, isn’t the spirit of the law,” prominent trans activist Diane Rodríguez, Ecuador’s first trans Assembly member and national director of the Ecuadorian Federation of LGBTI Organizations, told VICE World News.

Rodríguez also told the outlet she first thought this was “fake news” — but now “we are afraid that in the Assembly things will go backwards and they will start legislating against us.”

Meanwhile, the custody battle between the dad and his ex-wife is ongoing.

“Until this matter is resolved, [the children] have to stay with their mother,” Ramos said, as reported by Jam Press. “The law is taking away our right to be parents. [Changing my official documents] is a proof of love.”

According to Bankrate, transgender individuals can legally change their gender on their driver’s licenses in all 50 states — but the process can be challenging. Some states require a birth certificate amendment and proof of gender-affirming surgery.

Last September, Montana became the latest state to allow transgender people to change the gender on their birth certificates following a contentious legal battle.

Meanwhile, in California, a dad claims he lost custody of his son after he questioned his transgender identity.

In a separate case, a Texas jury ruled against a father seeking custody of his twin 7-year-old sons in his attempt to stop one of the boys from changing his gender in 2019. That dad expressed concerns Thursday that his ex-wife — pediatrician Dr. Anne Georgulas — will allow their son, now 9, to be “chemically castrated.”

To give himself a better chance of gaining custody, he decided to change his gender at the Civil Registry office.

He added “The law is taking away our right to be parents. It is a proof of love.”

He added: “Until this matter is resolved, they have to stay with their mother.”

René’s stance has angered many trans activists in the country who fought to have the law changed to allow citizens to change their gender.

A spokesperson for the Ecuadorian Federation of LGBT+ Organisations called it a “private matter” and not in the “spirit of the law”.

The custody battle continues. Amber McLaughlin, 49, was convicted of killing and raping Beverly Guenther on November 20, 2003, in St. Louis County, Missouri, US.

She has now begged Republican Governor Mike Parson to spare her from being executed citing mental health issues and a troubled childhood.

According to a letter sent to Parson her foster parent rubbed faeces in her face when she was a toddler and her adoptive father tased her.

She tried to kill herself multiple times, both as a child and as an adult.

McLaughlin’s lawyers cited her traumatic childhood and mental health issues, which the jury never heard, in the clemency petition.

According to the anti-execution Death Penalty Information Center, there is no known case of an openly transgender inmate being executed in the US before.
