An eight-month old Canadian baby has been issued a health card without a gender marker, in what could be the first case in the world.
Parent Kori Doty – a non-binary transgender person who identifies as neither male nor female – aims to allow the child to discover their own gender.
The health card has been issued with a “U” in the space for “sex”, which could be for “undetermined” or “unassigned”.
Kori Doty is fighting to omit the gender from the birth certificate. …
Kori Doty … argues that a visual inspection at birth is unable to determine what gender that person will have or identify with later in life.
They want to keep Searyl’s sex off all official records. …
“When I was born, doctors looked at my genitals and made assumptions about who I would be, and those assignments followed me and followed my identification throughout my life,” Kori Doty said.
“Those assumptions were incorrect, and I ended up having to do a lot of adjustments since then.”
Are the kid’s chromosones XX or XY?
