What is everyone's opinion on legal/official documents being neutral to gender? This is more guided towards people stating they identify as a loaf of bread on their tax return slip.
Should the traditional M/F tick box be abolished and replaced with a more modern option appropriate for the changing social values of 2017?
Should you have to state your actual gender regardless of how you personally feel?
I personally think the good ol' traditional M/F tick box is more than sufficient.

I don't see why it's necessary at all. My passport has my gender for if they want to grope me (and a non-cisgender employee could lead to some interesting confrontations), and the NHS know so they can arrange the various tests when I get old, but my driving license doesn't and I don't see why anybody else needs to insist on knowing my gender. Similarly for sexual orientation, marital status, racial background, age etc. They need to know my name and contact details, and my bank account details if it's a business relationship.
