Default Australian passports to allow 'indeterminate' for gender

An article about it here:

Is it wrong that before reading the article is that the only person this would help would be SNL's Pat if Pat was Australian?

This is a good thing for IS people though!

If it's wrong, then I'm in the same boat as you, buddy.

Great news, though!

It is a start but the Australian government also needs to stop violating people's human rights and allow same sex couples to marry, then they may be onto something.

I've been doing some reading lately to brush up on my gender studies, and it is interesting to me that many leading TG authors actually prefer to be out as TG, not as TS (in other words, they want to be recognized as someone who isn't either a 'man' or a 'woman'). Leslie Feinberg, Kate Bornstein, and others would benefit from this passport, so it is important to note that many people in the transgender world would rather open up the category of gender, not move between two very strict binaries of male and female. Thus, 'indeterminate' is a good first step for lots of people, not just IS people, because gender is so much more than male/female.
