TAKE ACTION: White House petition calls for legal recognition of non-binary genders

A petition on the White House website with nearly 50,000 signatures is calling for the legal recognition of non-binary gender identities. According to the petition, legal documents in the United States only recongnize male and female as genders: 

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.
