New York State Offers Residents ‘X’ Gender Option

Starting June 24, New York state residents can select “X” as their gender on their driver’s licenses, birth certificates, and other official identification documents.

Additionally, transgender New York residents will be able to select their preferred gender designation.

“Every person, regardless of their gender identity or expression, deserves to have an identity document that reflects who they are,” New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) said in a news release.

New York’s Gender Recognition Act goes into effect on June 24. Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed the bill into law last year, allowing residents to select male, female, or “X” gender markers with “no additional documents required.”

“I’m proud to live in and represent a state that respects and values the needs of these communities – particularly as queer, and especially transgender young people, have come under attack in recent months across our country,” said New York state Sen. Brad Hoylman.


‘X’ gender designation will soon be available for New York residents

    If legal gender is whatever you say it is now, why not just eliminate it on documents altogether? It has no meaning and serves no purpose for identification anymore. Pure stupidity and pandering but absolutely no value.

  2. Truth Vaccines says:

    Such important legislation.
    I think we should be investing in mental health programs, not advocating evolutionary retarding practices.
    Confused people shouldn’t hold government offices, teach our children or own guns.

  3. AL says:

    One thing getting ignored in the “gender designation” issue is that people changing their gender on these forms are allowed to change to their chosen gender name, and they often, change their date of birth.
    Good luck trying to do any background checks on them for employment, etc.

  4. Tim Toroian says:

    Isn’t that the same as a shoulder shrug?

  5. Maria says:

    Follow the science: male or female, boy or girl. This science had been in effect since the beginning of time and no idiot can change its true meaning. One cannot decide ones gender, only God can do that.

    What about “R” for robot. Like most Americans are becoming

  7. Proud says:

    Female by birth and mother of children who were breast fed — and proud of it !! That’s what God made me — female –anything else was an effort on my or someone’s part.
