Non-Binary Drivers

Do car insurance companies factor any gender options besides for male/female? I'm curious if there is any data about "non-binary" drivers.

Any chance that many years later you can elaborate a little on this? Specifically, the aggregate over 3 to 5 years part. I'm an EL doing tail factors at work and thinking through this right now.
