Huffington Post Guidelines: Accuracy Will Not Be Included in Headlines

A headline at HuffPo:

Australian Passport Gender Options: ‘Transgender’ Will Be Included

Sounds like the trans-exterminationists’ mid-level goal of permanently othering all trans people, including transsexuals, has taken root, eh?

Well…

Australian passports will now have three gender options – male, female and indeterminate – under new guidelines to remove discrimination against transgender people, the government said Thursday.

Let’s see…

“Male”

“Female”

“Indeterminate”

Funny, but I don’t see “transgender” among those three as a delineated category.  Yes, one of the three categories is intended to benefit people who have yet to have SRS, so the underlying gist of the article isn’t wholly inaccurate.

However, “transgender” is not one of the three categories, so why the factually inaccurate headline?

    I think i heard somewhere that the indeterminate is specifically for intersex individuals but i could be wrong.
