Badcopnews.com – A Constitutional Court in Austria is reported to have issued a verdict which enables a person to be registered with a sex type other than men and women on official documentation.
Quoted from Sputnik, Monday (2/7/2018), This is a request from Intersexual Activist known as Alex Juergen.
Ales Juergen (a pseudonym) confesses joy over the verdict and feels admittedly as someone.
“For the first time in my life, I felt like being recognized as me, how I was born,” he said.
The Austrian Court emphasized in its ruling that Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights states the right to individual sexual identity and defends in particular, persons with alternative sexual identities.
Although the decision has been made, but it does not change the applicable law because it does not explicitly require about the sexes.
The third sex has received legal recognition in several countries including Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, India, Pakistan and Nepal.
According to UN experts, from 0.05 to 1.7% of intersexual people are born into the world.
