Germany First European Country to Allow Third Gender Birth Certificates

Germany will become the first European nation to allow ‘third gender’ birth certificates. When a baby is born, on the birth certificate, it’s a boy or a girl, but now German parents will have a third choice.

The third choice will be ‘undetermined’ if the sex can not be clearly identified at birth. The law will be for ‘hermaphrodites’, but the law also states, if a person deeply feels they belong to a certain gender, they have the right to choose.

Since 2011, Australia has allowed citizens to mark their gender on their passports with an X and New Zealand allowed the same thing last year.

Human rights policy director, Silva Agius, sees Germany’s step as a move in the right direction hoping it will push the rest of Europe to follow.
