Germany Offering Third Gender Option On Birth Certificates
Huff Po - As of November, Germany will be the first country in Europe to offer a “third gender” distinction on its birth certificates. A new German law stipulates that children who are born of indeterminate genderno longer have to be categorized as “male” or “female.” Instead, parents can choose to leave the space blank on their child’s birth certificate, according to German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung. Those individuals can eventually decide whether to identify as male, female or neither. The German legislature voted this as an amendment to the Civil Status Act on May 7. As Süddeutsche Zeitung recently noted, the “legal change has received little attention so far.” But that all changed when some determined the new law, while progressive, doesn’t go far enough. FarMZ, a German Family Law Journal, recently outlined the measure’s shortcomings as such: Once the third gender option is legal in Germany, those who choose to identify as “blank” are going to encounter a host of bureaucratic headaches when traveling abroad. The group suggests that Germany use an “X” to designate third-gender identifiers on its passports. In the past, the country has been criticized for its stances on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. Though the Germany is more progressive than many of its neighbors, the law often lags behind public opinion. For instance, same-sex marriage is illegal, even though74 percent of Germans are in favor of legalization, according to Reuters. Same-sex unions are legal, however, and partners are granted equal tax benefits as those of married couples. Incidentally, Germany’s not the only country navigating the legal implications of appropriately categorizing third gender identifiers. Earlier this year, Nepal began issuing “third gender” citizenship certificates. Activists lauded the progressive measure, noting its potential to simplify lives for sexual minorities.
Well I guess Germany has just given up huh? Just gone full pussy. 70 years ago the world biggest villains. Biggest scariest baddest motherfuckers in the history of existence. Now they’ve joined the Gender Neutral Movement. I don’t know if this is some attempt to make up for the mass genocide but I don’t like what you’re doing one bit, Germany.
The Gender Neutral Movement is going to ruin the human race. Its the beginning of the end if we let these oversensitive assholes win. The human race will eventually streamline into a bunch of androgynous hermaphrodites. We’ll probably just become extinct because everyone will be too politically correct to fuck. Should I put my dick in your pussy? Or is that rude? Was that misogynistic? Maybe you should put your pussy on my dick? I’m sorry, am I being patronizing to females now? Wait, can I call you females? Is that disrespectful? I’ll just go jerk off in the corner alone and debate whether I’m really a man or a woman while the human race stops procreating altogether.
Fucking lunatics. I don’t even get the appeal of being gender neutral. Its like you don’t get any of the perks of siding with either gender. There are pros and cons to being a dude or a chick. Dudes get to pee standing up and fuck tons of chicks without any social stigma. We make more money and we can tell funny jokes. Women – you get to manipulate the world with the Power of the Pussy. You can to to Vegas for free. Never pay for a drink in your life. You can quit your job at like 25 and make a man pay for you to survive for the rest of your existence. Whether you’re a dude or a chick there are ways you can absolutely crush life. But if you’re some gender neutral doll with a smooth crotch and not dick or vagina, you get nothing. You’re just a mannequin freakshow that doesn’t get to cash in on any of the benefits of either gender. Fucking morons. Not only ruining the human race but ruining your kid’s life.
