Don’t really care how a person wishes too see themselves. What does concern me is what standard weight is used for the load sheet. Male standard weight would be the most conservative way.
Also if there is a crash, how do they identify an Mx, surely they can only be identified as male or female by their remains.

Sounds like PC gone mad too me!
Why do you have to identify everyone according to gender? Why can't they just identify you according to your name and identity number (DNA) from the start? I mean, once you sorted everyone according to gender (like you want to do) you have to sort the individual males and females according to their individual identities anyway.
Flawed argument... if you have to ask "why you have to identify someone according to gender" then I would ask "why identify anyone at all" :?:

When the police for instance try and identify someone who has committed a crime, how would you suggest they go about this if not by physical characteristics, gender being just one of them, color of their skin, hair color, please enlighten me because I am frankly lost here :?:
Off course you need to identify someone to know who they are, that is just common sense. And off course you would use physical characteristics. But what does it matter if the ID says Mx or Mrs or Mr? You can still use any physical characteristics which are apparent. The other fact is that not everyone who appears (according to physical characteristics) to be male is male and vice versa.

Next time I fly with my partner and they ask for her ticket, I’ll explain that she identifies as a piece of carry on luggage and could they please refrain from being such assumptious bigots.

Most female partners wouldn't be too forgiving of such a description 8-[

Unless that means they don’t have to pay for their ticket. :D
