TITLES like Mr and Ms could be a thing of the past at Oxford City Council because they are "not inclusive of transgender people".
A panel of councillors said official forms should include the gender-neutral option of 'Mx' – pronounced like 'mix' – and that honorifics could be phased out completely from documents in the future.
This would help make the local authority as "inclusive as possible", they said, in a move following government departments, high street banks, universities and driving licences, which all now accept it.
