Legally Recognize Non-Binary Genders | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government →

Please consider helping spread the word about this. There are only a few days left to sign.

Legal documents in the United States only recognize “male” and “female” as genders, leaving anyone who does not identify as one of these two genders with no option. Australia and New Zealand both allow an X in place of an M or an F on passports for this purpose, and the UK recognizes ‘Mx’ (pronounced “Mix”) as a gender-neutral title.

This petition asks the Obama administration to legally recognize genders outside of the male-female binary, and provide an option for these genders on all legal documents and records.

Click here to support Rent for a month! by Mark Miller →

A really great youth-led community space for queer youth in Seattle is in danger of closing down if they cannot come up with rent for the next month and bridge a funding gap they’ve been experiencing recently. They are a an important space in Seattle and make a difference by hiring queer and trans* youth and providing support to these communities.

I am unfortunately not currently in a place where I can afford to donate money, having all of $9 to my name. If your are in a more charity-friendly situation, please consider turning your attention to this organization :)

"It is vital for gay men, lesbians and bisexuals to recognize our movement as basically a transgender movement. … The fact that the most effeminate gay men and the butchest lesbians are the most endangered among us should alert us to the fact that society cares less about what we do in private than it cares about a challenge to its longstanding gender assumptions."

Please reblog: We the people petition the Obama administration to RECOGNIZE NON-BINARY GENDERS →

This petition is a HUGE DEAL. At the very least, if this petition gets enough signatures to require a response, it will make the news and cause a long-overdue mainstream discussion of the fact that the gender binary does not fit everyone. Please consider signing, even though it’s a bit of a pain to create a White House account.
