United States issues its 1st passport with a gender ‘X’ designation​



@Jaydaan




DENVER (AP) — The United States has issued its first passport with an “X” gender designation — a milestone in the recognition of the rights of people who don’t identify as male or female — and expects to be able to offer the option more broadly next year, the State Department said Wednesday.

The U.S. special diplomatic envoy for LGBTQ rights, Jessica Stern, called the moves historic and celebratory, saying they bring the government documents in line with the “lived reality” that there is a wider spectrum of human sex characteristics than is reflected in the previous two designations.

“When a person obtains identity documents that reflect their true identity, they live with greater dignity and respect,” Stern said.
The department did not announce to whom the passport was issued. A department official declined to say whether it was for Dana Zzyym, an intersex Colorado resident who has been in a legal battle with the department since 2015, saying the department does not usually discuss individual passport applications because of privacy concerns.
Zzyym (pronounced Zimm) was denied a passport for failing to check male or female on an application. According to court documents, Zzyym wrote “intersex” above the boxes marked “M” and “F” and requested an “X” gender marker instead in a separate letter.
Zzyym was born with ambiguous physical sexual characteristics but was raised as a boy and underwent several surgeries that failed to make Zzyym appear fully male, according to court filings. Zzyym served in the Navy as a male but later came to identify as intersex while working and studying at Colorado State University. The department’s denial of Zzyym’s passport prevented Zzyym from being able to travel to a meeting of Organization Intersex International in Mexico.

The world is going crazy. This is getting silly


In a way-- i am not so bothered by this, because it will make things normal and humans non judgmental.

Maybe it will reach a point where at work or school-- u can claim any gender and no one will care. I guess we will head where Martin Luther King said-- Judged according to the content of your character and not the color or your skin or how you look or which gender you identify with- or who you feel inside yourself.


But as Muslims - of course we need to categorically stick to our Islamic guidelines.

  • Homosexuality act sin
  • Homosexuals are still Muslims as long as they declare they are in fact Muslims, and fight hard to fight the sin of homosexuality

what always amazes me is not our transgressions or incomprehensible acts but our freedoms to do so. i think one thing we can never complain to the creator about on the day of judgement is of him interfering in our freedoms. so for me i see myself more this days in wonder of the creators tolerance rather than human self- destructiveness and arrogance for some of this actions out rightly smacks of arrogance more than any thing else

If Somalis can check the Ayrab box in the census instead of the black box, why can't people who feel like another gender select the X gender? Both are silly but we must be fair to the transgender and the transracial.
