that varies 100% by state. in dc where i am they updated it to allow you to put an x on your id, and required no proof for doing so; at the same time that that came to pass you also require no proof for changing your id to m or f. you have to fill out the gender designation form but no longer have to submit a doctor/therapist note or whatever. it's the same for whether you are changing your id to say m, f, or x.
(i would rather all ids just did away with gender marker altogether, but this is definitely a huge improvement over the previous requirements of being both binary options only and mandatory gatekeeping from some kind of authority figure!)
