Australia adds third gender option


Individuals in Australia will now have three options when selecting a gender on official documents: M for male, F for female, or X for โ€œindeterminate, intersex or unspecified.โ€ The new system will take effect July 1 and is expected to help strengthen Australiaโ€™s identity security system.

Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus says the change will bring a practical improvement to the everyday lives of transgender, intersex and gender diverse people.

โ€œTransgender and intersex people in Australia face many issues trying to ensure the gender status on their personal records matches the gender they live and how they are recognised by the community,โ€ he said on a statement on Thursday.

Trans followers, is this a system we should be emulating?
