Canada issues third sex ‘X’ gender neutral passports
    2017-August-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CANADA has announced that it will be issuing gender neutral passports and other government documents to citizens who identify as being neither male nor female or gender fluid by marking government documents with an “X” in an effort to “support LGBTQ2 rights” and advance its “agenda on gender equality, diversity and inclusion.”

“An ‘X’ will make it easier for people who do not identify as female (“F”) or male (“M”) to acquire passports and other government-issued documents that better reflect their gender identity,” office of Ahmed Hussen, minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, said in a statement.

“All Canadians should feel safe to be themselves, live according to their gender identity and express their gender as they choose,” Hussen said. “By introducing an ‘X’ gender designation in our government-issued documents, we are taking an important step toward advancing equality for all Canadians regardless of gender identity or expression.”

The third category will begin to appear from as early as Thursday.

Last month, a baby in Canada was given a health card without a gender designation, supposedly making it the world’s first gender-free baby.

Also last month, a man who identifies as a woman and is serving a sentence for first-degree murder was allowed to spend the rest of his life in a British Columbia women’s prison.

The inmate, Fallon Aubee, who was convicted in 2003 for a gang-related killing, was allowed to be transferred to a women’s prison.
