“Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) and GOP members of the Oklahoma Legislature want to prevent the State Health Department from issuing gender neutral birth certificates after the agency issued this month the state’s first nonbinary birth marker,” the Oklahoman reports.
Said Stitt: “I believe that people are created by God to be male or female. Period. There is no such thing as non-binary sex.”
Meanwhile, Insider reports Oklahoma State Rep. Mauree Turner (D), who is nonbinary, said it was difficult to work with people who “adamantly oppose your existence” after the Stitt made his comments.
