BBC News - India court recognises transgender people as third gender

India's Supreme Court has recognised transgender people as a third gender, in a landmark ruling.
"It is the right of every human being to choose their gender," it said in granting rights to those who identify themselves as neither male nor female.
It ordered the government to provide transgender people with quotas in jobs and education in line with other minorities, as well as key amenities.
According to one estimate, India has about two million transgender people.
In India, a common term used to describe transgender people, transsexuals, cross-dressers, eunuchs and transvestites is hijra.
Campaigners say they live on the fringes of society, often in poverty, ostracised because of their gender identity. Most make a living by singing and dancing or by begging and prostitution.
Rights groups say they often face huge discrimination and that sometimes hospitals refuse to admit them.
They have been forced to choose either male or female as their gender in most public spheres.

All softwares which used "1 bit" for storing gender, will now have to be changed! :D
0 = Female
1 = Male
Now all that will need to change!

Alternate is dont change form, ask them to tick both! (or leave both empty). Simple solution without creating lots of form changes.

My main concern is that these transsexuals will say that we need to use female restrooms. It has already happened on sodom and gomorrah land aka USA and they have won court case allowing shemales to use girls restroom

We are being destroyed by this evil. Traditional families are being take over. These are nature freaks and deserve to be ostracized.
I dare you to defend them. There have been countless stories where these kinners have castrated men who had any sort of social contact with them
Our only hope is PUTIN.
