OED Considers A Gender-Neutral Title

The Oxford English Dictionary may soon include a gender-neutral title for those who don’t identify as a traditional Mr, Mrs or Ms. The prefix under consideration is Mx, a title that has already been accepted by some British institutions including the Royal Mail postal service, which currently offers the option on its website. The addition would make significant headway for the transgender community at a time when our collective understanding and acceptance of gender is greatly expanding.
