As reported in Saturday’s Advocate, Service Alberta will now allow people who do not identify as male (M) or female (F) to register themselves as X. Is this a good idea? While we’re expanding the notion of gender, would anyone object to expanding other categories?
My AB operator’s licence indicates my hair color is grey. I’m sorry but I really don’t self-identify as someone with grey hair. It’s more of a dashing silver. Can we please have a silver option? And while we’re at it, neither do I identify as a 175 cm (height) person. It’s more like 200 cm. I’ve been told all my life to stand tall and now I’m feeling it. And the 85 kg in the weight category just isn’t me. I identify with 68 kg. Would it be ok to change that?
I’m proud to be a progressive thinker. Any other categories we should consider expanding?
