From January 1st 2009 people who don’t fit into the female/male or feminine/masculine binary (like trans gender, inter sex people, transvestites and others) will be protected against discrimination in ten different areas in the society. Among them are at school, application precesses to schools, at work, and hiring processes for jobs.

This is both good news and bad news. The good news is that they get protection against discrimination by the law and the bad news is that it took the government this long to grant them those basic human rights. Seriously, what took them this long?
