Germanys top court on Wednesday required parliament to legally recognize a third gender from birth, potentially making it the first European country to offer intersex people the option of identifying as neither male nor female.
Current regulations on civil status are discriminatory against intersex people, the Federal Constitutional Court said, noting that the sexual identity of an individual is protected as a basic right.
Legislators must by the end of 2018 pass a new regulation to offer a third gender option in birth registers, the court added, ruling in favour of an appeal brought by an intersex person.
In the meantime, courts and state authorities should no longer compel intersex people to choose between identifying as male or female, said the top court.
The plaintiff had brought the appeal after several lower courts had ruled against a bid to introduce the gender options inter or various in the birth register. The intersex person was registered as female, but a chromosome analysis found the plaintiff to be neither male nor female.

They could go with “Mooch” or “Barack” - they seemed to be very interested in pushing this .... for some reason ....
100 years ago the legislature in the state of Indiana nearly redefined Pi to be 3 to make math easier for students.
They’ve been soundly mocked and rebuked for almost a millenia.
Now a court in Germany says there are 3 sexes and will force the lawmakers to comply.
History too will soundly mock and rebuke them for their idiocy and lack of real scientific understanding.
Everything else is self-delusion or forced mass delusion.
The war against nature continues.
Technically, there IS a third gender in the German language - the masculine, the feminine, and neuter.
Der, Die, Das.
The legislature should say “NEIN !”
Another great advance toward the annihilation of western culture.
Theyve been soundly mocked and rebuked for almost a millenia."
Did you mean to say CENTURY?
You could determine or assign gender based on whether there was a Y chromosome, but chromosome analysis might also reveal that a person or their genitalia would never be 100% male or 100% female. Or it could reveal that a person's sex as determined by chromosomes didn't match their physical characteristics. Hence the dilemma. It sounds like these people aren't just boys who want to be girls or vice versa, but people born with what used to be called biological abnormalities.
See? I KNEW there was one for Barack in there.
Real scientists might see gender differently than the liberal judge. I stand with the science. Only two real genders.
Unabated. Horrifying to watch.
Yes, and there is sometimes chimerism, where one set of genes may be male and the other female.
But none of that is what they’re claiming, “neither male nor female”. That just does not turn up in chromosome analysis.
There seems to be a rule in nature that liberals are insane...stark raving bananas.
I like how human biology can adapt due to a court ruling. I didn’t know evolution worked like that. Good thing those judges are there to help everyone forget obvious things and enforce lunacy. Social justice rages against reality - I wonder who will win.
The war against Nature’s GOD continues unabated.
Laugh it up, unbelieving world. While you still can.
Intersex is a real thing and it’s very sad. I can’t imagine having a baby that is neither male or female.
