Alaska sued in transgender driver’s license case



Published: Mon, July 18, 2011 @ 10:45 p.m.

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the state of Alaska on behalf of a transgender woman, alleging that it denied her a driver’s license listing her gender as female unless she provided proof that she’d undergone a sex change operation.

The lawsuit, filed in state court in Anchorage Monday, states that denying the woman a license that accurately reflects her gender identity because she hasn’t undergone surgery is unconstitutional.

According to the lawsuit, the woman, a pilot identified only as K.L., has lived her life as a woman for nearly two years. It states that she officially changed her name, receives hormone therapy, and is identified as female on her passport and other documents.

A message was left late Monday afternoon with the Department of Law’s civil division.

"The lawsuit, filed in state court in Anchorage Monday, states that denying the woman a license that accurately reflects her gender identity because she hasn’t undergone surgery is unconstitutional."

This fellow has a bad case of insanity and the state should not issue him a license, period . Failure to recognize ones gender is proof of insanity and stupidity .

What difference would it make if it says Male or Female. I mean seriously - it's a stupid driver's license. It stays hidden in your wallet 99.99% of the time.

I seriously hope the judge throws this out as yet another frivolous lawsuit, but I have a feeling that the State of Alaska will have to pay lots of money to appease the ACLU and the LBG population.

"Failure to recognize ones gender is proof of insanity and stupidity" making a statement as such is one of ignorance and intolerance. Ignorance and intolerance are two traits which cause much more tension and hatred than gender identity problems. People such as you who constantly indulge yourself with such venom clears the question of "Why can't people learn to get along." There's the answer.

RoddAC - Tolerance only goes so far. When a person forcibly pushes things to this extreme, they've made themselves a target for ridicule.

Why is it that people who promote tolerance expect the other majority of the population to simply allow them to do whatever they want, pass insanely ridiculous laws, and force their twisted views on the masses?

RoddAC :

If I was ignorant and intolerant then there is a high possibility that I would be a member of the GLBT community . This is not the GAY USA and unlike Burger King you can't have it your way . Can't we all just get along ?

NilesOhio - There are actually people who are males in female bodies, and vice-versa. It's not a view nor a choice. I try not to judge. Most people do judge apparently. Ridicule is a form of judgment, don't you agree? Our country believes rights are for all people and laws protect those rights. Transgender people harm no one. Tolerance goes too far only when it bring harm to people.
