Oregon Becomes First State To Allow Third Gender Option On Driver ID

Oregon Becomes First State To Allow Third Gender Option On Driver ID

The step forward was prompted after, last June, a judge decided that OR resident Jamie Shupe (in the photo above) had the legal right to identify as non-binary.

She said that when people's appearance doesn't appear to match gender markers on ID cards, they "endure insults and psychological trauma that could largely be averted if they had an option to use a gender marker that does not contradict who they are". Shupe plans to apply for a non-binary driver's license on July 3, alongside his wife.

The ruling, which didn't come in the form of a senate bill or a legislation passing, came from a simple need at the state level: from the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles. According to Reuters, the policy was unanimously adopted by the Oregon Transportation Commission.

Northam wins Democratic nomination for governor
While he may not have the high-profile endorsements of Northam , experts say he's attracting the same group that aligned with Sen. The lieutenant governor and the former congressman have few policy differences and share a similar liberal agenda on many issues.

This includes non-binary, gender-fluid and genderqueer people, as well as some trans people.

Supportive comments included that the DMV was "being careful and considerate", McClellan said, adding that one letter of support read, "Thank you for making it easy for me".

A person wrote about when going through airport security, the TSA agent didn't know whether to choose male or female on the X-ray machine and was so thankful when the person finally whispered to just pick female. "Removing barriers for people is critical to helping all of us live healthy, productive lives". The Oregon Transportation Commission approved the measure on Thursday, and the change will go into effect on July 1. Australia and New Zealand offer the option on passports, and India on passports and voter registration cards. OR beat to the punch California, where a broader bill is moving through the legislature to allow a gender-neutral choice on licenses and other documents, such as birth certificates.

Police identify mother, 2 daughters found dead at Ohio home
Taylor was the mother of the Pifer girls, both of whom had been estranged from their biological father for at least a year. A Kent State University student was one of three people found dead at a home in southern Cuyahoga County.

Gender binary is history-in the West Coast, at least.

Almost one-third of transgender people who showed an ID with a name or gender that did not match their perceived gender reported harassment, discrimination or assault, according to a 2015 survey of more than 20,000 people in all states.

They said: "The state of OR sees me for who I am". Shupe was the first person in the United States to successfully petition for a non-binary gender classification, however, since then several others have received non-binary markers through the courts.

Philippine marines killed in fighting with militants
The little-known Maute group has been a fierce enemy of a military with superior firepower and greater troop strength. In April, troops killed dozens of Maute militants and captured their jungle camp near Lanao del Sur's Piagapo town.
