U.S. State Department Issued its First Passport with 'X' Gender Designation

A high school boy was just convicted of sexual assault in Pennsylvania after he wore a skirt into the non-gender exclusive bathroom and horrendously violated a young girl. Today, the woke, non-binary liberal agenda achieved a victory that could result in dangerous consequences on a global scale: passports with “X” gender designations.

The Associated Press reports “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 department did not announce to whom the passport was issued, but U.S. special diplomatic envoy for LGBTQ rights, Jessica Stern, proudly discusses the new move which she calls historic and celebratory. “When a person obtains identity documents that reflect their true identity, they live with greater dignity and respect” said Stern.

“We see this as a way of affirming and uplifting the human rights of trans and intersex and gender-nonconforming and nonbinary people everywhere” said Stern, who plans to “talk about the United States’ experience with the change in its interactions around the world and she hopes that might help inspire other governments to offer the option.”

The Associated Press reports of the new measure:

The State Department announced in June that it was moving toward adding a third gender marker for nonbinary, intersex and gender-nonconforming people but said it would take time because it required extensive updates to its computer systems. A department official said the passport application and system update with the “X” designation option still need to be approved by the Office of Management and Budget, which approves all government forms, before they can be issued.

The department now also allows applicants to self-select their gender as male or female, no longer requiring them to provide medical certification if their gender did not match that listed on their other identification documents. 

The United States joins a handful of countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Nepal and Canada, in allowing its citizens to designate a gender other than male or female on their passports.
