[Ed. – Brave new world.]
The White House said Monday it was open to putting a third gender option on federal forms, noting the administration will “fight for equal rights for people.”
President Joe Biden marked International Woman’s Day by signing two executive orders on gender equity. The first established a Gender Policy Council within the White House. The second action directed the Department of Education to review existing rules to ensure students are guaranteed education free from sexual violence.
During a press briefing on Monday, a reporter asked if Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris “see the value” in signing an executive order to create a third gender option on federal government IDs for those who want them. The reporter noted that the two campaigned on the issue during the 2020 election.
