Nationality via British mother

Amend unfair law so that nationality via British mothers is the same as via British fathers.

How can the Borders, Immigration & Citizenship Act – with its obvious gender and age discrimination – be legal? It blatantly discriminates against children born abroad before 1961 to British mothers.
 
I was born in the USA to a British mother and should therfore be eligible for automatic British citizenship by descent. However, the Borders, Immigration & Citizenship Act does not allow British mothers to pass on their citizenship to their children regardless of where or when they were born.
 
As of 13 Jan, 2010, I finally have the right to claim my British citizenship (via my British mother) however I don't consider the path to British citizenship an entitlement since it is dependent on specific conditions.
 
Because I was born before 1961, I (and others in the same situation) am required to register and pay £540. However, if my father was British (or if I was younger), I could claim British Citizenship by descent without registration, without a fee and without the required citizenship ceremony.

Why is this idea important?
