Queensland driver’s licences become gender-free after LGBTI community complain

The Queensland Government no longer requires a person’s gender to be displayed on their driver’s licence. According to an internal document obtained by The Courier Mail, the move to make driver’s licences genderless followed complaints from the LGBTI community who argued the mandatory gender identification was discriminatory.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) confirmed the move towards genderless licences was due to the need to make driver’s and marine licences compliant with new anti-discrimination laws. According to the document:

TMR has received complaints and suggestions from members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community about displaying gender/sex (M or F) on TMR cards.

The document went on to suggest that other personal details, such as height, eye colour and hair colour may also be perceived as discriminatory.

TMR has received feedback that the collection of personal information (eye and hair colour, complexion, height) may be perceived as discriminatory by some members of the community.

Where will the insanity that is Political Correctness end? The video below already seems nearer to reality than satire.
