    I do realise that there are a species that have a reproduction of both sexes (hermaphrodites) as some animals as well, but I understood Kai’s query was about not specifying the gender of a newborn on the birth certificate.

    My assumption was she was referring to today’s young leftie Liberals  allowing the child to grow up to whichever gender they may choose, or rather what gender the parents would prefer. Nothing to do with Gays or cross-dressers, or changing their anatomy later on.

    I was interested to find out how many possibily hermaphrodite children are born in New Zealand each year but could only find out the following which doesn’t state one country only :-

    “In approximately 1 in 2,000 infants, there is enough variation in the appearance of the external genitalia to merit hesitation about appropriate assignment by the physician involved.[23] Typical examples would be an unusually prominent clitoris in an otherwise apparently typical girl, or complete cryptorchidism in an otherwise apparently typical boy. In most of these cases, a sex is tentatively assigned and the parents told that tests will be performed to confirm the apparent sex. Typical tests in this situation might include a pelvic ultrasound to determine the presence of a uterus, a testosterone or 17α-hydroxyprogesterone level, and/or a karyotype. In some of these cases a pediatric endocrinologist is consulted to confirm the tentative sex assignment. The expected assignment is usually confirmed within hours to a few days in these cases.

    In a much smaller proportion of cases, the process of assignment is more complex, and involves both determining what the biological aspects of sex may be and choosing the best sex assignment for the purposes of rearing the child. Approximately 1 in 20,000[citation needed] infants is born with enough ambiguity that assignment becomes a more drawn-out process of multiple tests and intensive education of the parents about sexual differentiation. In some of these cases, it is clear that the child will face physical difficulties or social stigma as they grow up, and deciding upon the sex of assignment involves weighing the advantages and disadvantages of either assignment.”

    It seems to me that with the numbers of children involved, it is difficult to make a decision to not disclose the gender of all children because of the possibility of mistaken gender being assigned to such a small minority.

    More information in the link where I obtained the above… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_assignment

    Thought you may like to view the following video of our hard working “dusties”  back in the day in Wellington……slogging up & down the steep paths.  It wasn’t all Maori, many white men worked the beat for either exercise for their sport or pay Uni.  Now, the wheelie bins spew s&c everywhere!  Much  respect for all those men back in the day:
