frankly i think cis people should go get their gender markers changed to X en masse so we can just get rid of the field in 5 or 10 years

@tindall I know where you’re coming from but I don’t think I agree. Being gendered correctly really does matter and official docs have weight - granted that the long term goal is to abolish officialdom altogether

@ghost_bird totally! but I don't see why border guards need to gender you at all. passports specifically have basically zero reason to have that field.

@tindall @ghost_bird In my home country there is no gender marker on the id card (no passport needed inside the EU, so most people have that cheaper one instead of a passport)

But still cis people are like "oh but what gender does it say on your id card" all the time to trans and nonbinary people 🤦🙄🙃


@trisschen @tindall @ghost_bird fun fact: while citizens don't have a gender marker on their id cards, non-citizens have it on their residence permit cards(which are otherwise afaik almost identical to ids) 🙄
