No sex for me, please! Ex-transsexual Australian Norrie May-Welby is first legally genderless person
New York Daily News ^ | Tuesday, March 16th 2010 | Maria Fugate

Census-takers may soon have to add a new check box for gender.

And the thanks for the confusion goes to Norrie May-Welby of Australia, who has passed as a man — and a woman — and is now the first person legally designated neither, London's Telegraph reports.

The genderless 48-year-old was born male in Scotland, and moved Down Under at age 7. Twenty-one years later, May-Welby underwent a sex change, but really wasn't happy living life as a woman either, according to Telegraph.co.uk.

Which left neuter, naturally — and that seemed to fit.

"The concepts of man or woman don't fit me," May-Welby said. "The simplest solution is not to have any sex identification."

And New South Wales government officials amended the Scottish Australian's birth certificate to reflect "no specific sex" after doctors were not able to make a gender determination, Telegraph.co.uk reported.

"There is no reason for still insisting that our legal identity must include a public statement about a very private matter, our sex," May-Welby wrote in, er, zie (a gender-neutral pronoun) blog.

The UK's Gender Trust welcomed the case. "Many people like the idea of being genderless," a spokesman said, according to the Telegraph.

The restroom question has yet to be formally addressed.

Norrie May-Welby, 48, wasn't comfortable as a man - or a woman - and now iis officially recognized as neither by the government of New South Wales.

Re the above: not that you’re wrong - the sex-changer is, to think that gender doesn’t exist. On a molecular level, he’s male and always will be.

EGAD. I beleive I would grant this request in this very special case.

Then let “zer” use “zer” own private bathroom at “zer” house. Not allowed in either men’s nor ladies’ restrooms.

BTW, the title falls under the category of “Things spinnerwebb will never say”, for 500, Alex.

I suppose it depends on wether it prefers to stand or sit. To borrow a line fron Benny Hill, it could always decide to be a dog and lift a leg.

Ah, provided the body correctly read and executed properly the chromosome code.

There are indeed rare biological instances where it gets processed incorrectly, and you have feminine ladies who genetically are men. (I forget if vice-versa happens too....)

Cool. Finally, someone who will speak the truth. I’ve got a conservative friend who has a friend who had a lopitofomy, and even he (the conservative) calls him a “she.” Drives me crazy.

It’s actually simpler than that. Got a “Y”, you’re male. No “Y,” you’re female. Lots of libtards think that there are genetically intermediate genders, like X-X-Y, or simply X (aka X-0). But XXY (Kleinfelter syndrome) is plainly male, and XO (Turner syndrome) is plainly female.

Neither. It should use a litter box like other neutered animals.

There’s already a word for it: eunuch.

I guess we’ll have to add another letter to the ever lengthening LGBT acronymn. It’s already gotten up to LGBTQIA, I believe.

“What does LGBTQIA stand for? L = Lesbian; G = Gay; B = Bisexual; T = Transgender, Transsexual; Q = Queer, Questioning; I = Intersex; A = Ally, Asexual ...”

Actually, I guess asexual covers this already.

No they won't. A simple Y/N question is all that's required: Do you have a Y chromosome?

So, maybe it can be purchased as a pet. Being nuetered, the license would be cheaper.

We have a male-to-female transsexual on cast at my Festival. I try not to talk ABOUT him, because performers are by and large a liberal group and will dogpile on me for calling him “he.” To his face, though, there’s no problem, because “you” is neutral.
