Is giving a third gender option fair?

In Germany as of Nov. 1 they will be the first European country to allow a parent to identify their child a
boy, a girl, or third gender. Third gender meaning
the child cannot clearly be identified, because they have both male and female bodily
parts. A court decision led to the change to help intersexuals
or commonly known as hermaphradites
identify themselves instead of being told who they are?
What do you think of this decision?
I think it shows advancement in the way we look at gender and consideration for those born with both attributes. My concern is now it could lead to the child being labeled into this third group when they themselves may not want to be looked at as a third gender. I don’t know this is all new to me.
What could be the repercussions of this decision?
