    It's probably one of the few situations where chromosomal sex is actually relevant for identification.

    without a head they still couldn't id you which is why they often use dental records and medical records perhaps that should be included as well

    They don't change. Maybe one day that will change, but not now.

    Hence, you can confuse the police if they're trying to ID your body and it doesn't match your chromosomes and they don't know your background. (Morbid Award there.)

    EDIT: Random note. I actually read some kind of creepy supernatural/murder mystery novel back in the early 80's where that was the "twist" and demons took over the world cuz they didn't solve the crime in time. Just a bad call.

    moral of the story, don't die in a suspicious manner at suspicious place

    in seriourness though, why don't they put that on the forum like "we need this incase you die and we need to id your body but your chronosomal sex does not change, we're not trying to opress you, but we;re sure you loved ones would like to know if your dead or just missing, if the occasion arises" ?

    DNA doesn't change.

    That said, there are people born with chromosomal anomalies who don't have XX or XY sex chromosomes.

    @Entropic Yes, ideally, it would be simpler if we weren't required to state our gender, but that's probably not going to happen any time soon.

    What about an "Other - Please specify" option. Would that suffice? Or is that offensive?

    It's a little wordy, donchathink?

    And 93Jc is right, not every person has an XX or XY, there are other combinations as well.

    No, I think "other" is just fine though I find it problematic in how "other" creates an othering, but in the light of governments making that transition, it's better than nothing. At least it may alleviate the current gatekeeping somewhat, among other things, and make people who absolutely do not want either M or F on their ID to pick that as an option.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.
