California became the first state in America to legally recognize a third gender after Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown signed the legislation Sunday.
State drivers’ licenses, birth certificates, and other identity documents will now allow residents to check “non-binary” rather than just male or female, the Sacramento Bee reported Monday. The Gender Recognition Act is one of several gender-oriented bills Democratic state Sen. Scott Wiener introduced this year. Wiener partnered with Democrat State Sen. Toni Atkinson to push the bill.
Wiener is also responsible for introducing a bill that gives jail time to certain Californians who refuse to use transgender pronouns.
