Denmark is making the internet gender-free. The organizers of Copenhagen Pride started a new initiative in response to unnecessary gender questions on online forms. Calling them not just ‘so yesterday’ but also very discriminatory, despite Denmark being very open.
‘At Copenhagen Pride we are proud to represent one of the first countries in the world to stop defining being transgender as a mental illness,’ they said. ‘But the gender struggle does not end there.’
So they set out to rid the internet of the need to tick a box confirming your gender. With Gender Free Internet we wish to give people all over the world respect and recognition by making it possible to surf the internet without being confronted with the discrimination of gender boxes,’ they said.
