The labelling of male or female will be removed from new Belgian national ID cards going forward. Sex will still be indicated within the digital data on the chip, but a third category of non-binary will become available, according to Belgian media. rtl.be/info/belgique/societe…

This week's @guardiang2 Lost to the Virus is about John Eyers, who refused to get vaccinated because he was a fitness fanatic who'd read conspiracy theories online. He was just 42 when he died. He leaves behind a daughter, twin sister, friends and parents. theguardian.com/society/2021…
