First time in the history of mankind, An eight-old-month baby could be the World’s first to be marked as “Gender Unknown.” Kori Doty, “a non-binary trans person” who is the parent of the child, named Searyl Atli, wants to keep their child’s gender off the records.

According to the CBC News, Doty said: “I’m raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are, I’m recognizing them as a baby and trying to give them all the love and support to be the most whole person that they can be outside of the restrictions that come with the boy box and the girl box.”
He has been trying to to get a birth certificate since last November, however, the British Columbia has issued a health card with a “U” for gender, meaning undetermined or unassigned. From this, the baby could access medical services. But meanwhile, the province is refusing to issue a birth certificate to Searyl.

Doty further added: “When I was born, doctors looked at my genitals and made assumptions about who I would be, and those assignments followed me and followed my identification throughout my life. Those assumptions were incorrect, and I ended up having to do a lot of adjustments since then.”
He significantly stated that he wants his kid to have all of the space to be the most whole and complete person that they can be.
Doty’s lawyer, Findlay has marked an important point by saying that our culture is obsessed with a baby is a girl or a boy.
