Massachusetts senators have passed a bill that would let those seeking identification designate their gender as “X” instead of “male” or “female.”
This bill was brought forth from Democratic Sen. Karen Spilka, who said the proposal recognizes the rights of transgenderindividuals.
The Gender X bill is being debated today in the State Senate. It would allow a person to mark X instead of male or female on their driver’s license/ ID. @KarenSpilka speaking this morning before the debate begins. #Massachusetts @wbz pic.twitter.com/I6i89qmSoc

Currently, California, Oregon, and Washington D.C. have the option to make Gender X on their legal forms of identification.
If this is passed by the House, it will go into effect November 1st.
