A proposed change in the state of Washington will allow parents to choose the non-binary gender classification of “X” for their children and officially add it to new birth certificates.
The law already states that anyone born in the state can petition to change their birth certificates to their preferred gender du jour. Children can also make the change with “consent of their parents and with a doctor’s note,” according to KUOW.
If approved, the change would happen as early as next year. So far, about 1,000 comments have poured in to the state department of health with messages for and against the radical measure.
The health department’s Christie Spice said they are just following the societal changes happening around the country:
“[M]ore people are identifying as a gender other than a male or female and there’s growing demand for non-binary sex designations on all identity documents, including birth certificates.”
Washington is also considering giving the “X” designation for state ID cards, following in the footsteps of other states before it.
Nearby Oregon added the gender-neutral option earlier this year to its state-issued ID, as did Washington D.C. To no one’s surprise, California is leading the pack by offering non-binaries their coveted “X” on both driver’s licenses AND birth certificates. More proof that California is wokest of all.
Professor Bret Weinstein, a leftist, refused to participate in the evacuation of white people (only) from the campus of Evergreen State College and sued the college for the hostile work environment he alleged that he and his wife subsequently suffered. Without admitting that charge, the state-supported institution that already faces a $2.1 million deficit and layoffs, is going to cough up a cool half million bucks to avoid the expense, spectacle, and risk of a jury trial.

[Editor’s note: So the taxpayers of Washington will now need to cough up half a million dollars to settle the claim. Is the “University” administration to suffer any consequences for their idiotic policies? No, they get to enjoy their inflated salaries, benefits and can look forward to their generous pensions, all the while continuing their war on the civil society by indoctrinating another generation of ignorant social justice warriors.]
OLYMPIA, Wash. — Republican Rep. Dave Reichert of Washington state said Wednesday that he is retiring from Congress after seven terms.
Reichert, 67, a former sheriff famous for his decades-long, successful hunt for the Green River serial killer convicted of killing 49 women, has represented a suburban district east of Seattle since 2005. After new district lines were approved in 2012, his district crossed the Cascade Mountain range and added areas in more conservative central Washington.

[Ed.: That’s ’cause he’s a lying, cheating, dirty double-crosser who’s mama wears Army boots. There should have been a rider that stipulated that if any portion agreed to was vetoed, the deal was invalid. I’m not sure how you do that technically with legislation, but there’s one thing you can count on never to happen again: The Washington State Republican caucuses to ever to take “Dirty Double-crossing Jay Inslee” at his word ever again.]
