(Worthy News) - As of Jan. 1, 2019, the "third" gender, designated as "X" instead of "M" or "F," will be an officially recognized option for birth certificates in the largest city in the United States.
Bill DeBlasio, mayor of New York City, signed into law a bill that allows persons who self-identify as transgender or "non-binary," those who do not consider their gender to be male or female, to change their biological sex listed on their birth certificates without a doctor's note or affidavit.
The city council approved the measure, which was sponsored by council Speaker Corey Johnson, with a 41-to-6 vote last month. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
