June 27, 2014: Conformity Zone

June 28, 2014

I read an article last week about a gender non-conforming teen who was told by his local DMV that he couldn’t get his driver’s license photo taken with make-up on because it constitutes a “disguise.” Here’s the story from CNN.com: http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/18/us/south-carolina-drivers-license/. So it’s not a “disguise” for girls to wear make-up for their driver’s license photo?

 

There was a story a few months ago about a high school that wouldn’t let a female-to-male trans student have his senior yearbook photo taken until he put on some make-up and wore female clothes. All of the reasons people give for imposing these rules are B.S. They are just transphobic. Trans people are outside their comfort (or should I say conformity) zone.
