ME to Offer Non-Binary Gender Option on License & IDs

Huge step forward for those individuals who don’t align with either of the traditional genders.

Maine will start offering driver’s licenses and IDs with a third, non-binary gender option.

The Portland Press Herald reported Monday that the state’s bureau of motor vehicles will begin issuing stickers for IDs or licenses stating “Gender has been changed to X – non-binary” for those who request them.

The state’s licenses and IDs will feature a M, F or X gender option after a redesign in 2019.

Canadian Baby Identified as Agender

I’m sorry, but I do not understand whatever agender or non-binary shit is. I get loving the opposite sex. I get loving the same sex. I get loving both depending on the circumstances and the person you’re in a relationship with. I don’t understand what it’s like to be born in the wrong body, but I accept that it happens and am all for transgender rights. Anything outside of the L, the G, the B or the T is beyond me. In a world where people don’t want to be labeled, there are still thousands who reject the labels there are – for whatever reason – and decide to make up their own shit. In my eyes, they’re doing it for attention. I don’t understand one person wanting to be referred to as “they”. They, they’re, their have denoted multiple persons for I don’t know how long and suddenly it’s not…?

In this case, the parent involved is screaming for this child’s rights, but at the same time, the child’s rights are being taken by the parent. Let the child grow into the male or female body given at birth and if that child feels wrong, let her or him make up his/her mind alone. Why should a parent force their own issues on this child? Why make life difficult for the child if she/he is happy in their own body? Kinda makes me wonder if the parent would be happy if the child turned out to be a healthy heterosexual female or male.

I got this story from Lizzy the Lezzy on Facebook and as someone pointed out, there are medical issues that the child may experience that the doctor needs to know if the sex of the child is male or female as it could determine how something is treated or handled.

A Canadian baby has become the first to receive official identification which defines them as not having a gender.

Eight-month-old Searyl Atli Doty – Sea for short – got their national health card with a “U” entered in the sex category, months into a legal battle that their parent is still fighting.

Kori Doty, a trans non-binary parent, is appealing against the Vital Statistics Agency’s decision to refuse Sea a birth certificate.
