This is a step in the right direction. Ultimately, there needs to be a legally-recognized third gender designation. The idea that everyone has to be either male or female is outdated and anal retentive.
We also need to outlaw medically unnecessary surgeries on children too young to consent. They're nothing short of medical rape.

although it may be difficult to 'choose' a gender later in life if that's what is wanted, it certainly is one hello of a more difficult situation to completely 'change' sex after childhood surgery has been decided for that person. But ideally this should be an unnecessary decision and more an option for those who want it
I think Germany are doing the right thing here with the 'undetermined' not only because sometimes one gender or the other is later decided... and I'm hoping legally altering the birth certificate is then an option... but because people dislike radical change (or what they perceive as radical change) and this way the idea of an officially recognised third sex is introduced... hopefully without much protest
At least it's a good step in the direction of acceptance and recognition of Intersexed people
