Gender markers are data points that show the gender of a person on a document (such as passport, driver's license, insurance card, birth certificate, etc) or in a computer system (such as an employee database, electronic health record, etc). Sometimes this data point is called "Sex" instead of "Gender".
The standard common gender markers are M for male and F for female. Other gender markers (which are not always available) include U for unspecified, O for other, E for eunuch, and X for a nonbinary or intersex person (although many intersex people have a gender identity of binary man/woman).
Even when a U, O, or X option is available, not all nonbinary people will be comfortable selecting it.
