    The Netherlands Issues Its First Gender-Neutral Passport

    While the Trump administration is re-re-defining gender and returning to a ’two genders’ scientific definition, the Netherlands are issuing gender-neutral passports.

    The first one having just been issued to Leonne Zeegers, 57, who selected gender designation X instead of M for man or V for woman.

    Leonne was raised a boy but in 2001 had surgery to become female, now identifying as intersex. It was Zeegers’ lawsuit that had judges ruling that preventing a registration as gender neutral was a “violation of private life, self-determination and personal autonomy”.

    There are around four per cent of Dutch neither identifying as male or female, the BBC reports. It is still up to the courts to decide if an individual should receive an X designation for gender.

    Countries that offer gender-neutral passports: Argentina, Australia, Canada, Denmark, India, Malta, Nepal, New Zealand and Pakistan.

    Currently the UK only allows male or female, as a High Court challenge to passport rules was rejected in June.

    Is the number really this high or is this biased journalism from the BBC? 5% = 1 in 20 and I have a hard time believing that 1 in 20 Dutch *gender neutral humans* identity as intersex. 4% is higher than the number of gays I meet in my day to day life so I'd expect the number of transgenders & others who identify as intersex to be significantly lower than that.

    It isn't that high, it's definitely less than 1%. It's just that there are so many SJWs who will claim to be trans for the victim points and attention. They won't undergo surgery, they're heterosexual like you and I - it's just a fad. They probably don't even call themselves trans either, but gender fluid. Meaning: they get a different haircut and a different wardrobe.
