Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar said she would recognize a third gender marker option on a federal level.
"Yes... I will," she said. "And I think there's also — you know, I think that there is a lot of work we need to do, all over the country, with driver's licenses as you know, not every state has some of the provisions that California have in place and just work on a state-by-state basis to make those changes."
Why this matters: Members of the non-binary community, or people who reject traditional gender binaries such as "man" or "woman," would be able to choose X on important documents, such as birth certificates.
At least five states allow non-binary people to choose X as their gender on their birth certificates.
Klobuchar went on to say presidents should play a big role in recognizing how people identify themselves.
"You want to be able to bring people in. We have a President right now in the White House who spends his time dividing people in any way he can. Every single morning he writes a tweet going after someone, going after people of color, going after immigrants, going after transpeople. It just never stops. And so I think it's going to be just a complete change to have a new president in place. That's putting it mildly. And just changing that culture and changing the tone of our politics, and part of that will be educating people about people's identities and what's happened and where they are because he sure isn't doing that," she said.
