High School students in Australia can now be an 'X'

Postby Katto » Wed Mar 22, 2017 4:24 am

Meanwhile, this happened...

High school students given option to select 'gender X' instead of 'male' or 'female' on official exam papers

Students will have a third option, 'gender X' when listing their sex on I.D forms
The decision was made by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority
Decision has come under fire with some calling it a 'threat to bathroom safety'
Transgender Victoria however say there has never been a toilet case in Australia

High school students who do not identify as male or female will now be able to list themselves as 'gender X' on official high school documents.

In the ruling made by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA), students sitting their VCE and VCAL examinations will have a third option when it comes to listing their gender identity.

The move comes as Victorian transgender and intersex pupils feeling marginalised by the lack of identification on personal I.D forms, voiced their concerns to the education body.

I'm sure Mick is all for it, as one of those 21st century realities we must accept
