“Nonbinary” gender bill looks like it’s heading to the Governor

Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco is co-sponsoring a bill that would allow Californians to opt for a “nonbinary” gender marker on all forms of state identification.

Wiener’s bill would allow Californians to opt for a “nonbinary” gender marker on all forms of state identification. It’s not yet clear which alphabetical abbreviation will be used, though “X” appears to be a leading candidate.

Supporters of the bill say the nonbinary marker would allow those who do not identify as either male or female to more easily navigate the tasks of daily life.
