Gender preference has no place on a birth certificate

A bill that will allow individuals who identify as “non-binary” to replace the sex listed on their birth certificate with an ‘X’ was cleared last week by New York City Council. City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who introduced the legislation alongside Mayor Bill de Blasio, said this “will make New York birth certificates more inclusive for all and will send a powerful signal to the world that New York City government works for everyone”.

Today’s progressive discourse has determined that everything must be ‘inclusive’ of everyone – but, in reality, this change is both unnecessary and nonsensical.
