Original Message A circuit court judge has ruled an Oregon man can legally identify as "gender binary."

Following a decision passed down by the Multnomah County judge, 52-year-old Jamie Shupe has become the first individual in the country to attain the legal classification of being neither male nor female. "I have my life back," Shupe stated after the court ruling last week. "I'm not a male. I'm not a female."

The decision is being lauded by gay activist organizations, who argue "classic gender markers don't fit everybody," and the court decision will serve to help people "exist without labels that don't accurately describe them."

Shupe, who refers to himself by the pronoun "they," called the ruling the "greatest victory of [his] life."
