Massachusetts To Allow Trans Residents To Self-Select Gender On Driver's Licenses

Hysteria has ensued in Wingnutistan over the word that Massachusetts is now allowing transgender residents to more easily change their gender on driver's licenses. From a letter from the state Registrar of Motor Vehicles to the LGBT rights group MassEquality:
The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles has amended its policy to enable transgendered individuals to more easily change the gender designation on their licenses and identity cards. Under this new policy, it is no longer necessary to submit medical proof of sex reassignment surgery. The agency understands that this requirement is often very difficult, if not impossible, for many individuals to satisfy. Under the new policy, an individual who wishes to change the gender marker will submit an updated application together with a Gender Designation Change Form, signed by him or her and a medical provider attesting to the gender that the individual considers himself or herself to be.

In addition, the Registry of Motor Vehicles will no longer require an individual to provide an amended birth certificate in support of the new gender designation marker. I believe these changes are fair, reasonable and sensible. The next edition of the Registry of Motor Vehicles Driver's Manual will reflect the agency's policy amendments. If you have any questions about these changes, please feel free to contact me.

Wails the anti-gay MassResistance:
This change has huge implications for society. Essentially, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has decided that for legal purposes of identification, a person's actual sex is meaningless. The gender "you consider yourself to be" is now officially used. This is madness. But it's now the state policy. A man using a women's restroom or women's locker room would now show police a legal, official Massachusetts identification that he "is a woman". He could get this on the basis of "the gender he considers himself to be" with the agreement of a "medical provider". A male elementary school teacher can start coming to school wearing women's clothes and using the girls' rest rooms or locker rooms. And this will extend everywhere throughout society, in businesses, public accommodations, schools, and everywhere else. This is just the latest step of the radical homosexual movement.
Because a rapist/child molester would NEVER enter a ladies restroom without proper ID! MassResistance, you should know, is identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as "active hate group."
