Nonbinary drivers license coming to California

This should drive the bigots in Orange County absolutely crazy.

A new bill working its way through the Legislature would create a third gender-neutral option on driver’s licenses, learner’s permits, state-issued ID cards and birth certificates for those who consider themselves nonbinary.

If SB 179, which has already passed the Senate, becomes law, California would become only the second state behind Oregon to allow a gender-neutral option on DMV documents and birth certificates.

In June, the District of Columbia added an “x” in addition to male and female — part of a burgeoning global movement to provide gender-inclusive government IDs.
