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.
So does he/she/it use the men’s room or the ladies’ room?
Wrong, as per usual. The chromosomes don’t lie.
Polymorphous perverse sexuality.
It ain't rocket science...it's simple mammalian biology.
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.
In Before The Obligatory “It’s Pat” Picture....
Indeed. Self-mutilation aside.
“The restroom question has yet to be formally addressed”.
...if I caught this freak in the same bathroom as my wife or daughters I’d slap him sillier than he already is!
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.
It’s a eunuch.
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.
Personally, after ruminating over changing phylums, I’m gonna go all-in, and make the trans-Kingdom leap
I’m thinking of becoming a maple leaf.
With that mug.....
Boy - K. D. Lang has really let herself go.
