Progressive Progress – One Tiny Step

I’m a college freshman, and for spring break, I am attending Powershift 2009, a conference for youth leaders and young activists for climate change. I filled out the online form to register, and saw something that literally made me dance around the room.
When the form asked for “Gender” the choices were (get this):

-Male
-Female
-Self-Identify

WOW! I’ve never seen that last option on a form before! Of course, we must remember that this is a progressive organization by its very name and definition, but it’s certainly progress!
Kind of reminds you how although we’ve come a long way…we’ve got a ways to go.
