None Of Your Business

We’ve seen it so often we barely notice it, never mind actually think about it. We check M or F and move on, but …

Why does the government, the airlines, the bank, our favourite store need to know what sex we identify as? As long as we pay our taxes and our credit cards aren’t rejected, who cares? Aren’t we all supposed to be equal now?

Granted,  The Handmaid’s Tale has made me paranoid. But, unless we’re going to get up close and personal, how I identify is none of your business.

Canadians now have a third option on our passports. We can check M for Male, F for Female, or X for Gender Neutral.

No problem. Hopefully, it will make life a little easier for non-binary, intersex, and trans people, but …

Why do we need any gender categorization on our passports?

Because the International Civil Aviation Organisation says we do. At the risk of sounding like my four-year-old grandson… Um, why?

Maybe we should all choose X on our passports 🙂

  1. LOL! No one pays attention to Canada. We’re just that cold country on top of the States 🙂 I’m not complaining, it means we get less attention from the terrorists 🙂
    I read the UK is also thinking of making the move to gender neutral passports?

  2. UK’s will make the gender-neutral passport move. I’m generally cautious about the information I put on the net or anywhere else for that matter. If there’s ever a rather not say option, I’ll always pick it heh.
