GENDER X

Written by
From the time a person is born to the time they die a person is classified by their gender. It is notated on your birth certificate and death certificate and hundreds of other legal documents including your passport and driver license. Until recently there were only two markers that a person could chose from on a legal document, "M" for male and "F" for female; however, a handful of other states have started providing a third option "X" for Gender X. According to an excerpt of Newsweek Gender X is "a gender that is not exclusively male or female, including, but not limited to, intersex, agender, amalgagender, androgynous, bigender, demigender, female-to-male, genderfluid, genderqueer, male-to-female, neutrois, nonbinary, pangender, third sex, transgender, transsexual, Two Spirit, and unspecified." Currently five places, California, Washington D.C, Maine, Minnesota, Oregon and as of November Colorado will allow an "X" designation on their driver license and five states, California, Washington, New Jersey, Oregon and just recently New York, allow for it on their birth certificates.
