Australia passports allow transgender option

Canberra : Australia this week brought in new passport rules allowing citizens to nominate their official gender as male, female or indeterminate, without having to undergo surgery as proof of a sex change.

Senator Louise Pratt, Australia's first parliamentarian with a transgendered partner -- born female but now a man -- said the change was a huge step forward.

Pratt was quote as saying

The reason this bill was passed was because Being transgender  is very distressing, and highly inconvenient ."

Another quote I saw from and Aussie leaving the country to live somewhere else said:

I am getting out because I am  worried with all this transgender legislation, they will make it compulsory.

I also wonder if they are just trying to save costs so we only need one restroom when we travel now.
