Coming Soon: Easy standardized DMV Gender Marker Changes?

The clip to the left is from MOVE which is published by The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) a non-governmental, educational association representing the state and provincial officials in the United States and Canada who administer and enforce motor vehicle laws.

AAMVA states it's mission is to "facilitate communication and foster standardization among member jurisdictions concerning traffic safety, titling of motor vehicles, and licensing drivers."

Personally I think this is a wonderful concept! Imagine being able to renew a Texas license without having a clerk question your gender marker at the top of her lungs!

It would be nice next time I renew if that same loud clerk did not take offense like she did last time when I graciously asked to be served by someone else after having those experiences with her in previous years!

After seeing the above paragraph from the TX DPS communications director in "MOVE" and reflecting on the difficulties I have renewing my licence showing my correct gender I decided to tweet our office and see if they were reading MOVE. I'd also like to suggest the Texas DPS accept the NCTE/AAMVA educational offer.

I'll keep you posted.


AFA Email Confirms: Not Christian? Stay Away from Texas Gov. Rick Perry's Day of Prayer

Jewish, Muslim, Buddhists, atheists, liberals, and LGBT people, the AFA says YOU are NOT invited to pray with Texas Governor Rick Perry!

This is a clip from an AFA email explicitly disinviting all non Christians from the religious and political process. And don't presume to be a part of the prayer process that according to Rick Perry in the following video is a integral component of the political process.

The AFA would have you believe by prayer on August 6th you can identify exactly who is to at fault for our country's problems. And non Christian are not invited by Rick Perry to join in finding out whom to blame for this perceived imminent demise of our country. This same sort of exclusive fear mongering, a threat of the "END DAYS" was also used to motivate people to convince Pontius Pilate to crucify Jesus.

Many, like myself believe Christ's message was one of inclusivity and a eternal invitation to salvation. There is no prerequisite to 'belong' to any religion or political party to join with humanity in faith.

This is why the AFA has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The American Family association believes all non Christians are guilty of idolatry which is a pejorative term for the worship of an idol, a physical object such as a cult image, as a god. Rick Perry by inviting the AFA to host this event is promoting that philosophy and inviting you to transform American into a theocracy .

Contrary to what Rick Perry and the AFA would have you believe, YOU are welcomed, loved and as important to the political process as any anyone else is, including hate groups.

You can help voice that belief by being among our numbers outside of Reliant Stadium protesting on August 6th 2011.

planetransgender post Protest Rick Perry

For gender diverse people atheist or of any belief the AFA has a especially toxic message. You are invited to protest with the Dallas Transgender Advocates and Allies .
