High Court refuses bid for gender-neutral passports 'A campaigner has lost a High Court challenge calling on the government to provide gender-neutral passports. Christie Elan-Cane wants passports to have an "X" category, which could be used by those who consider themselves neither fully male nor female. The campaigner claimed the UK's passport process was "inherently discriminatory". High Court judge Mr Justice Jeremy Baker refused to rule the government policy as unlawful.' BBC.co.uk, 22nd June 2018. Sorry, ladies & gentlemen, but you'll have to continue being ladies & gentlemen for the foreseeable future.
