Britain's Supreme Court has rejected X-gender passports. This passport has been issued in the countries of people who do not consider themselves to be both male or female. Christie Alan-Kane has been trying to get a passport since 1995. But he does not want M (Male) or F (Female) to be written on his passport. He wants that he should be issued a passport written X. When the US issued an X-gender passport in October, Christie thought her dream was about to come true. But the British Supreme Court has shattered all of Christie's hopes.

The Supreme Court of the UK has rejected the X-gender passport. The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom said that the law and order are built on the basis of male-female division and that an X-gender passport would undermine this system. Activists are hurt, people campaigning in favor of this passport have called the Supreme Court's decision dehumanizing and degrading. He said that Britain has now broken away from countries that have issued passports based on gender. Christie said the decision would be appealed to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). 12 countries, including Australia, India, and Iceland, have issued such passports.
