It’s now ok to deny reality in Germany.

Spiegel reports:

Germany is set to become the first country in Europe to introduce a third, “indeterminate” gender designation on birth certificates. The European Union, which is attempting to coordinate anti-discrimination efforts across member states, is lagging behind on the issue…

Under the new law, individuals can also opt to remain outside the gender binary altogether.

The baby is a boy or a girl. It doesn’t matter what the parent wants or thinks the baby should be. Some things just are. Imagine that, some things in the world don’t need your agreement. They just are.

I guess this should come as no surprise since a baby’s sex isn’t the only thing which depends on the parent’s whim. In fact, whether the baby is a baby at all or just a blob of tissue depends on the whims of the baby’s parents.
