Baby Gender Options in Germany

Germany Allows Parents to Pick a Third, Neutral Gender For Their Baby

Gender reveal parties just got a little more complicated. In addition to the traditional "male" and "female" options, Germany has added a third "indeterminate" gender to birth certificates for babies who don't fall under either gender. The new legislation, which took effect on Nov. 1, takes some pressure off parents whose are children born with both male and female characteristics.

To see why Germany is adding this new category, and which documents it applies to, read the whole story on The Stir. And tell us, what do you think of this new law? Could it lead to happier kids? Or will it cause more confusion?
