It’s happening. The New York City Council and Board of Health passed legislation to add a third gender option– “X”– to birth certificates beginning January 1, 2019.
This is what progress looks like, apparently.
Of course, Bill de Blasio is losing his mind with excitement.
Everyone has a right to their own identity. Everyone has a right to be themselves. That's why New Yorkers can now change their gender to M, F, or X on their birth certificate. To our transgender and gender non-binary neighbors, New York City sees you and has your back. pic.twitter.com/isKyClDK14

Sorry, but gender isn’t really a “right.” It’s a reality. You can deny you’re something you are or pretend you’re something you’re not, but it doesn’t change reality.
Take care of your direct responsibilities, clown! You have a high crime in the city and garbage is everywhere, especially in the subway.

You're an idiot as usual. Scientific Facts: male and female. People can identify as they please, that's fine, but legal documents such as birth certificates should not be ambiguous or altered!!

I guess people only believe in science when it lines up with their political ideology . Scientific fact there only two genders man and woman!

This impacts literally less than 1% of the population. Affordable housing, transportation, poverty, I guess are already resolved?
