The White Houe petition to recognize nonbinary genders reached 100,000 signatures

gaywrites:

Meaning the Obama administration will actually look at the petition and consider it. Wow, wow, wow. 

I’ve seen a lot of backlash against this petition lately saying that it won’t do anything to help the status of nonbinary folks in the United States. I have my opinions, but as a cis person who won’t ever change to a nonbinary gender marker, I would rather hear other opinions out there first and learn more about what y’all are thinking. 

So, what say you? Will legal recognition of nonbinary genders — say, allowing for a third gender marker on official documentation, as that’s how other countries have addressed this — make things easier for nonbinary people in the U.S.? Will it be harmful or make no difference? Will any practical, functional changes follow, like more nongendered facilities, or not? Would there ultimately be a purpose for this recognition?

Other thoughts?

Today @ Q…
We will be screening the documentary Out Late:
"Out Late” is an inspirational and moving documentary about five individuals who made the courageous and life altering decision to “come out” as senior citizens. Their stories are nothing less than extraordinary: many lived straight lives complete with marriage and children, and now face the challenge of beginning again late in life. Why did they wait until their 50’s, 60’s, or 70’s to come out? And what was the turning point that caused each of them to openly declare their sexuality? From Canada to Florida, to Kansas, we explore what ultimately led these dynamic individuals to make the liberating choice to live openly and honestly amongst their family, friends and community…perhaps for the first time in their lives.
After watching the film, (it is only 1 hour long) we will have a short follow up discussion!
See you in the CGSA at 4pm!
