Gender X: Based On Public Feedback, Parents Can Leave Gender Off Birth Certificates If Approved

Washington State is Considering a third gender on birth cirtificates for parents who wants their child to pick their own gender.  They will have the option to pick Gender X.

Transgender people, whose perception of their own sex is at odds with their biology, will be able to pick whether they are male or female if their choice is supported by a doctor’s statement. Transgender people cannot pick “X.”

INTERSEX PEOPLE, WHO ARE BIOLOGICALLY NOT ENTIRELY MALE OR FEMALE, WILL BE ABLE TO LIST THEIR GENDER ON PASSPORTS AS “X.” in Austrailia.

Previously, gender was a choice of only male or female, and people were not allowed to change their gender on their passport without having had a sex-change operation. The U.S. dropped the surgery prerequisite for transgender people’s passports last year.

Any country that complies with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s specifications for machine-readable passports can choose to introduce a gender “X.”
