State Department to Start Issuing Passports With “X” Gender Designation

State Department to Start Issuing Passports With “X” Gender Designation

“The U.S. special diplomatic envoy for LGBTQ rights, Jessica Stern, called the moves historic and celebratory”

The State Department is rolling out a new “X” gender designation for passports and it’s being hailed as a “milestone” for passport applicants who don’t identify as male or female.

There are still Americans stranded in Afghanistan, but the Biden administration has its own set of priorities.

Colleen Slevin reports at the Associated Press:

United States issues its 1st passport with ‘X’ gender marker

The United States has issued its first passport with an “X” gender designation — a milestone in the recognition of the rights of people who don’t identify as male or female — and expects to be able to offer the option more broadly next year, the State Department said Wednesday.

The U.S. special diplomatic envoy for LGBTQ rights, Jessica Stern, called the moves historic and celebratory, saying they bring the government documents in line with the “lived reality” that there is a wider spectrum of human sex characteristics than is reflected in the previous two designations.

“When a person obtains identity documents that reflect their true identity, they live with greater dignity and respect,” Stern said.

The department did not announce to whom the passport was issued. A department official declined to say whether it was for Dana Zzyym, an intersex Colorado resident who has been in a legal battle with the department since 2015, saying the department does not usually discuss individual passport applications because of privacy concerns.

Just yesterday, the State Department spokesman made a statement about gender for “Intersex Awareness Day.”

Doesn’t the State Department have bigger issues to deal with right now?

It’s just stunning to see the State Department focused on this as the United States faces multiple, major issues on the world stage.

    ima laugh my MFAO when snowflakes start getting denied entry into countries because of this wilful stupidity on the part of our woke bureaucracy.

    the wails of anguish will be music to my ears and their tears too tasty to describe.

    oh well: the US had a pretty good run while it lasted. i’m glad i didn’t have any kids to leave this shitshow to.

      Yeah somehow I don’t think this is going to work out in say Iran or even Saudi Arabia for that matter. Get it and put it on a shelf sure. Try and use it in a place where they don’t care …not so much.

      Just offhand in Saudi males don’t require an escort but everyone else does so good luck with an x, it won’t be the talisman you think it is.

      Yup, my very first thought was, “whatcha gonna do when your destination country rejects it?”

Are we really this stupid? Stand up to these bullies.

“The U.S. special diplomatic envoy for LGBTQ rights”

We have one of these?!?!?

Which countries will accept this? I don’t see it having the same near universal acceptability as a real American passport.

    Milhouse in reply to George_Kaplan. | October 28, 2021 at 1:33 am

    It is a real American passport. And other countries don’t get a choice on whether to accept it. It is what it is. They don’t have to let Americans into their country, with or without a passport, but they don’t get to decide what our passport looks like.

      if i were a sane country, i’d deny entry on the grounds that the information given is inaccurate, making the document invalid.

      there are 3 options here, you can be:
      Male
      Female
      Mentally Ill

      and mental illness is grounds for denying admission, along with the document itself being inaccurate.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Milhouse. | October 28, 2021 at 7:31 am

      And, your stating of that fact obviously earned you a down-tick.

      CommoChief in reply to Milhouse. | October 28, 2021 at 10:45 am

      Yep that’s correct and we are potentially provoking a diplomatic dust up. I don’t think these folks at State have thought this through.

        henrybowman in reply to CommoChief. | October 28, 2021 at 2:08 pm

        Aw, come on, man!
        The entire Biden Administration can be described by the MadLib,
        “I don’t think the folks at ________ have thought this through.”

Sick puppies
They believe they can force us to buy into this BS
NO, a thousand times NO!

What was wrong with Y or N

Perfectly reasonable for intersex, and actual chromosomal abnormalities. Totally unreasonable to just be using psychological dysphoria.

Why do we have a State Department again?

    redc1c4 in reply to irv. | October 28, 2021 at 3:37 am

    to provide aid and comfort to our enemies…

    They throw the most AMAZING cocktail parties and and other such events where the taxpayer foots the bill for expensive bubbly intoxicants and fish eggs.

And what happens when someone is denied entrance to a foreign country because they do not recognize “x” as a gender?

And the world laughs. At us.
.

Shouldn’t it be ‘Z’ so it doesn’t get confused with the ‘X’ and ‘Y’ chromosomes?

Wait until a person with X gender is stopped in a nice “religion of peace” country, nothing like putting a big sign on yourself I am gender confused.

Was this done in response to a change in the law or did the uber-woke State Department make this change on their own?

I am not a bad @$$. I want to make that clear, if there were any doubt. I was intel. Eventually I wanted to be EOD. Which was no small hurdle, and I passed it. But then I found out I’d have to be a Surface Warfare Officer to go EOD. Conventional divers have to be qualified to command ships. But not SPECWAR types. So I was like, F U Navy, And it kicked my @$$. Let’s just say trying to become a SEAL is competitive. I’m not a bad @$$. But I know where they are proven.

I only mentioned my pedigree because up until like 5 minutes ago it would have seemed entirely normal. Now, the word normal is racist.
