Hm.  I'm supposing you won't accept "neither male nor female" as a valid answer.

Well, it's not ME saying it.  The court said you get to choose one or the other.  A choice between two options is not itself an option.

Unless you're setting people up for something.

Oh, I see what you're saying.  The judge's ruling is phrased awkwardly.

The only problem I have is that the ackwardness is precedent.  The "3rd gender" part is the problem.

If you're gonna establish case law, I'd think "gender is not an acceptable standard" is the only way to go.  In other words, no distinction between genders - born or chosen - is permitted in the eyes of the law.

India has a very, very different historical relationship with its 3rd gender population than the US or the UK does, so it's not going to be very revealing to look at this ruling through a Western filter.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

The ruling recognizes the already-existing third gender and mandates protections for a class of people who has historically been forced to the fringe, often unable to obtain housing or employment.
