Bill proposed by Federal Ministry of the Interior rejected

According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung of 19 May 2018, the SPD has rejected the bill on the third sex marker tabled by the Federal Ministry of the Interior. Federal Minister of Justice Katarina Barley and Federal Minister for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth Franziska Giffey criticised the term “anders” [“different” or “other”] as degrading and called for a uniform regulation for inter- and transsexual people.
