Washington state held a public hearing Tuesday, asking for comments on a proposal to allow a third gender option on the state's birth certificates. People will also be able to livestream the hearing by clicking on "view public hearing" at this link here.

The proposal is to add a new sex designation on birth certificates at the end of October. The proposed rule includes requirements for individuals to request a change to the sex designation on their birth certificates.

Chris Plante with Family Policy Institute of Washington says adding the gender-neutral option to birth certificates would threaten the integrity of state records. He says it is a safe place for queer youth to connect and thrive.

"We think there are a lot of unintended consequences that have not been considered and in an emotional rush to try to make people feel welcome and included, we're going to create a lot more victims in the process", said Kaeley Triller Haver, co-founder of the Hands Across the Aisle Women's Coalition. California will begin to do the same in the coming year.
