New Yorkers Can Now Change Their Gender To “X” On Birth Certificates

Fact checked

NYC has added third gender option for birth certificates

A new law in New York City has made it easier for transgender and non-binary people to match their birth certificate to their gender identity without needing a signed affidavit from a doctor.

The new law allowing the choice of “X” took effect on Tuesday and also allows parents to choose “X” for newborns.

New York has joined California, Washington, and Oregon in permitting a third category for birth certificates.

RT reports: New Yorkers can change their gender to “X” by merely attesting that it represents their “true gender identity,” where previously they required a doctor’s note to make the switch legally. Parents can opt for the “X” for their newborns without the sworn statement. Those unlucky enough to be born outside New York will have to wait for restrictions to loosen still further.

Since 2014, New York residents have been able to legally switch genders with only a note from a medical or mental health professional. Previously, they were required to undergo surgery before they were allowed to make the switch.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office celebrated the milestone earlier this week by tweeting a clip of a non-binary person praising the move as “an essential step toward the breaking down of binary ideological systems created in order to justify and uphold social, political, and economic oppression – systems which result ultimately in the separation of us all…from ourselves and our humanity.”

Others took a dimmer view of the move.


  1. The entire sex perversion anomaly of LGBTQXYZ and the associated “laws” to favor perverts, oppose traditional family values and morals and oppose any dissenting voices (which are the vast majority of people and cultures the world over, since the beginning of time) will come back and bite those that push, tolerate and favor such perversion in the derriere, Big Time. If you are a young parent or are thinking of being parents, and are buying into this crap, just wait until your kids (if you have any) are adolescents and then adults – see what kind of Orwellian “society” you get. The Law of Unintended Consequences is a real law and works tirelessly, not the anti-dissent laws that favor the reckless and confused, perverted brats of mainly western societies, and push their endless agendas on normal people and families.
