The governing Federal Council was quoted as saying that the binary gender model is still strongly anchored in Swiss society, hence rejecting a third-gender option on official records.
In the future, when some sanity has returned to Europe, historians will look back on the Swiss government’s choice to oppose the inclusion of a third gender option on official records. But the common trend in the bloc is that neighbouring nations have expanded the options available to citizens who identify as nonbinary.
The governing Federal Council was quoted by AP News as saying that “the binary gender model is still strongly anchored in Swiss society.” On Wednesday, the council rejected two recommendations from the parliament to include a third gender option or a non-gender option for official records.
“The social preconditions for the introduction of a third gender or for a general waiver of the gender entry in the civil registry currently are not there,” the council continued.
Such choices, according to the government, would necessitate too many amendments to the nation’s constitution and laws at the federal and cantonal levels. Citing a 2020 study from the national ethics commission, they added that it wasn’t the ideal moment to alter the system.

Meanwhile, a number of European nations, including Denmark, Sweden, Ireland, Norway, and Belgium, permit third-gender alternatives on official documents. Western nations are passing laws permitting a third gender choice in an increasing number of instances.
It is insane that third gender options are accepted by western countries when biology, or, let’s say, “science,” only recognises two genders: man and woman.
Science states that people typically have either XY (male) or XX (female) chromosomes, hence gender ideology that ignores this fact is false.
There will be no way to distinguish which of the 72 genders those remains belong to when historians and archaeologists unearth graves from people in the western world hundreds of years from now. Instead will be either male or female.
