Reports (1)
  • Status is not correct "The "x in passport" is not a sufficient criterion for legal recognition of non-binary genders. The rest of the Danish legal system only recognizes binary genders, and the "x" in the passport is not an indication of a non-binary gender identity of the holder or recognition of such. It simply means that the gender marker has been chosen to be left out by the passport holder for whatever reason. Which, granted, a person might choose to do because they're non-binary, but it is otherwise not linked nor an indicator of legal recognition. The status should be a red "not recognized.""
