New Flyer and Info about the open gender marker option for babies : How is a gender marker determined? In Germany, there are four ways to determine the sex of a child in the birth certificate: female, male, diverse, and an open gender marker entry. The current common practice is that midwives* or doctors enter a gender marker directly after the birth in the birth announcement. In the vast majority of cases, the genitalia of the child are indicated as "clearly male" or "clearly female" and the sex is determined on the basis of these characteristics.

It is indisputable that sex is more complex than this and cannot be determined conclusively by phenotype. Thus chromosomal, hormonal and / or social sex may differ from the genital sex from the outset, or one or more sex characteristics may change in the course of life.
By looking at the external genitalia of a newborn child alone, the sex cannot be determined unambiguously and conclusively. Leaving the sex entry open at birth is therefore medically well justifiable.
