California Moves to Offer Gender-Neutral Driver's Licenses

California’s looking to join Oregon and the District of Columbia in offering gender-neutral drivers licenses to residents who say they don’t conform to gender norms.

According to this, politicians in the far left-leaning state have introduce legislation that would provide California citizens the option to choose “X” on their driver’s licenses, rather than the traditionally gendered “M” or “F.”

Oregon, perhaps the only state more bat-crap crazy than the Golden one, became the first state to offer “X”-gendered licenses back in early July. The District of Columbia had begun issuing its first such I.D.’s only four days prior.

California law already allows its residents to change their marked gender on their birth certificate, regardless of whether he/she/it has actually undergone gender reassignment surgery. The state also made waves this week when with new legislation that could slap nursing homes and care facility workers with $1,000 in fines and up to a year in jail if they fail to use an elderly resident’s preferred gender pronoun.

The bill to allow non-gendered driver’s licenses has already passed the California state Senate and is up for debate in the Democrat-controlled state Assembly, where it’s likely to pass.
