“The Biden administration signaled openness Monday to adding a third gender to federal IDs,” according to the Washington Examiner.
“‘Speaking of executive orders on gender equity, the president and the vice president campaigned during the election on giving a third gender option on federal government IDs to individuals who want them. Does the president see value in signing an executive order to make that happen?’ a White House reporter asked Executive Director of the White House Gender Policy Council Jennifer Klein during a press conference. [emphasis added]
“‘I haven’t looked yet to see whether that requires an executive order,’ she replied. ‘I would note that we are very inclusive in our definition of ‘gender,’ and we intend to address all sorts of discrimination and fight for equal rights for people, whether that’s LGBTQ+ people, women, girls … men. So, that’s certainly something that we will look at. But I honestly don’t know whether that requires an executive order.’
