(Miami Herald) -- We don’t even have pronouns for this.
That’s what accounts for the clumsy grammar of the statement parent Kori Doty issued about Doty’s newborn baby, Searyl Atli Doty. For that matter, it also accounts for the clumsy grammar of the sentence you just read.
Anyway, Kori Doty’s statement read: “It’s up to Searyl to decide how they identify, when they are old enough to develop their own gender identity. I am not going to foreclose that choice based on an arbitrary assignment of gender at birth based on an inspection of their genitals.”

Of course, a baby human is not usually a “they” but a “he” or a “she.” Thing is, though, Kori Doty, who identifies as a non-binary transgender person — stay with me, now — has decided that the child, born in Canada “outside the medical system,” will not be saddled with gender.
