The Swiss government will not recognize the presence of a third gender. This was officially announced by the government of the republic.
The Swiss are used to the traditional model of gender identity, which allows for the existence of only two different sexes: male and female. “The principle of both genders remains deeply rooted in Swiss society,” the final document says.
The Swiss Federal Council also explained that in the country, in addition to public, there are also legal norms for the procedure of recognition of a third gender. And if such a procedure is started, then it will be necessary to amend the Swiss Constitution.
“Abandoning the principle of the two sexes would require numerous adaptations in federal and cantonal legislation,” the officials said.
In addition, the Swiss birth certificate must indicate the sex of the child, whether male or female. And there are no other options, such as, for example, in the USA, in Switzerland.
