Washington, DC adds transgender option for driver’s licenses. And it’s totally illegal
Washington, D.C. just began allowing residents to list their gender as ‘X’ on their driver’s licenses to accommodate people who think they are genderless.
But the REAL ID Act, which was passed after 9/11 and enacted in 2005, “specifically requires gender on each driver’s license and identification card issued to a person by a state,” Judicial Watch explained. The law “prohibits federal agencies from accepting for official purposes licenses and identification cards that do not meet these standards.”
