Hey all 

wanted to add that in both Oregon and California. they now let you chose on your ID or Drivers license, if do not wish to mark female or male there is a third choice and they do if I remember rightly a T on your ID or it may be a X I do not remember which it is.  

Also, beginning January in Oregon if you are a Oregon born, and it states so on your Birth certificate ? you will be able to "with out a court order, of a judge" be able to (at a fee of course.) Change both your Sex preference, and Name. to whichever Gender you identify as. but this is for Oregon born persons only.

In the support group that I facilitate (in NYC) we discussed name changes recently, a couple of people who have done it said it went very easily - there's usually a publication requirement, but in both cases the judge waived it for them due to the possibility of it endangering them - so that was nice to hear!  (I had it done in NJ, didn't even think to ask about waiving the publication requirement)
