Germany To Allow Parents To Choose No Gender For Babies On Birth Certificates:
With babies reportedly born without clearly determinable genitalia at a rate of 1 in every 1,500 — and many intersex individuals not exhibiting characteristics until later in life — the legislation seeks “to take the pressure off parents to commit themselves to a gender immediately after birth.”
"This will be the first time that the law acknowledges that there are human beings who are neither male nor female, or are both," stated University of Bremen law professor Konstanze Plett. "People who do not fit into the traditional legal categories… We will have fellow human beings with no sex registered. They can’t be forced into either one of the traditional sexes in these other contexts."
