Have you been following the story about Norrie mAy-welby? Scottish-born as a male, he had gender reassignment surgery and was later recognized as female. But apparently Norrie did not feel comfortable living solely as a female and was later neutered and classified as "non-specific gender".

"Doctors declared zie could not be categorised as a male or female and the New South Wales registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages agreed in late February to grant the new certificate."

After worldwide attention, the gov decided that sex of "female" or "male" were the only recognized choices for the certificate and anything else would be deemed illegal. Norrie is not asking to be labeled as a non-gender but says, "I am looking for the state to recognise that who I am cannot be contained within the simple gender labels of either male or female."

So, what do you think? Should there be a 3rd classification?
