Colorado Is Now Adding A Strange New Identity Option To Their Driver’s Licenses



Colorado has gone just as progressive as California and New York these days. It’s disturbing. They just added gender X to their driver’s licenses. No longer do people have to identify as either male or female. That’s just nuts. Colorado is doing this so they won’t get sued.

The state is also considering a third option for gender on birth certificates. LGBTQ advocates say this is crucial for transgender and nonbinary peoples’ daily lives. The Denver Post has more on this cultural madness:

A close up of a sample drivers license provided by the Colorado Department of Revenue. The state of Colorado will allow people who do not identify as male or female to mark “x” as the sex identifier on their drivers license starting Nov. 30, 2018.

Colorado residents who do not identify as male or female will be allowed to choose X as the symbol to represent their gender on their driver’s licenses when an emergency rule goes into effect this month.

The change comes as state officials continue to grapple with policies that allow people who identify differently than their sex assigned at birth to alter their official documents, which LGBTQ advocates say is crucial for transgender and nonbinary peoples’ daily lives.

The Colorado Department of Revenue, which oversees the Division of Motor Vehicles, decided to make the change, effective Nov. 30, after two court cases in which judges found in favor of Colorado people attempting to change their sex on government identification.

The department needed to adopt a policy in line with those decisions to avoid the possibility of being sued, the department’s executive director, Michael Hartman, said in an exclusive interview with The Denver Post.

“This is an important step for the state of Colorado that the state documents reflect our values,” Hartman said. “People are people no matter their sex identification.”

The change not only will be personally affirming to people who identify other than male or female, it will reduce the discrimination nonbinary people face when their documents don’t match their gender expression, said Daniel Ramos, executive director of One Colorado, a statewide LGBTQ advocacy organization. When the documents don’t match, nonbinary people are often forced to explain their identities or can be denied service, he said.

“It’s an incredibly affirming process when a person’s identification reflects their name and their gender,” Ramos said. “They no longer have the fear or anxiety of being rejected by a clerk or teller or anybody else.”

It’s difficult to know how many Colorado residents identify as nonbinary, which includes people who identify as no gender, more than one gender or something other than male or female, Ramos said. The change to driver’s licenses could help provide a better estimate, he added.

A study by the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law estimated that about 20,850 adults in Colorado identify as transgender, an umbrella term for those who identify differently than their sex assigned at birth which includes nonbinary people.

The addition of X to driver’s licenses will be a fairly simple operational change and won’t cost taxpayers any money, Hartman said.

“It’s a pretty quick update to the system,” Hartman said.

Discussions about adding a third option to driver’s licenses have been ongoing for years in the Joint ID Task Force created in 2013 by Gov. John Hickenlooper, Hartman said. But the department decided to move forward with the change after the U.S. District Court for Colorado ruled in September that the U.S. Department of State had to issue a passport to intersex Colorado resident Dana Zzyym even if they refused to choose male or female on the application. Zzyym requested to use X on their passport but was denied.

Hartman also cited proposed changes the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment could make to policies about changing birth certificates to represent a person’s sex identity that would include an X option as well. The changes followed the settlement of a lawsuit filed against the department by a minor who wished to change the sex listed on a birth certificate but had not undergone sex reassignment surgeries, as current policy requires.

The Colorado Board of Health will vote on proposals to add a third gender option to birth certificates and dropping the surgery requirement on Dec. 19, Alex Quintana, state registrar and director of vital records, said in an email. The changes would go into effect at the beginning of 2019 if the board votes in their favor and legislative channels approve the change, he said.

In wake of the court cases, the Division of Motor Vehicles needed to make a change to avoid a lawsuit, Hartman said.

“Someone in the community might take that step if we didn’t take proactive steps,” Hartman said.

Applicants who want to use the X on their driver’s licenses will have to complete a form and get a signature from a medical provider or mental health counselor but are not required to be undergoing any hormonal treatment or surgeries. The new licenses would be fully compliant with the federal REAL ID Act that sets standards for government-issued identifications and would be valid in other states and in airports, Hartman said.

Four other states — CaliforniaOregonMinnesota and Maine — and Washington, D.C., have already adopted a nonbinary identifier on their driver’s licenses.

Oregon was the first to offer a third sex option when its Transportation Commission approved a rule change in June 2017. The change turned out to be very simple, said David House, spokesman for the Oregon Division of Motor Vehicles. As of Nov. 1, about 2,091 people in Oregon have a driver’s license with an X, he said.

House said he wasn’t aware of any people who use X on their licenses who had difficulties traveling or using the ID outside the state.

Oregon transportation officials briefly considered removing sex designations from driver’s licenses entirely, House said but found that the Real ID Act requires that a sex be recorded though it doesn’t specify how. In contrast to Colorado, Oregon doesn’t require any certification from a medical provider for those who want to use X — people simply have to choose the option.

“We don’t weigh people. We don’t measure height,” House said. “You self-certify that.”

State officials received minimal pushback to the change, he said. Only 12 of 83 people who submitted written or oral comments during the approval process opposed the change. Since the rule went into effect July 1, 2017, House has received only a few phone calls about the issue.

“It’s pretty much dropped off people’s radar,” he said.

Once the Colorado emergency rule goes into effect, officials will begin the process of making it permanent. The emergency rule is effective for 120 days, Hartman said, though he could readopt it if the time limit expires before a permanent rule is made. Colorado legislators do not need to approve the change, he said.

The Department of Revenue will hold public comment on the proposed change, though that meeting hadn’t been scheduled as of Wednesday. People can also submit written comments via email. Department officials have already contacted law enforcement, who said the change wouldn’t affect their ability to investigate crimes, Hartman said.

So far, he hadn’t heard any criticism of the plan, though it had not yet been publicized outside the ID task force.

“When it comes to rulemaking, we have a really significant focus on hearing from all different viewpoints,” Hartman said.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It




* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate




* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
