In the latest step by the San Francisco Board of “Supervisors,” illegal immigrants will be allowed to get ID cards (but not drivers licenses – yet). (For my views on this subject, check out this post). And just a side point – if I were ever to get employed by the Secretary of State, or whatever it is in SF that will be issuing these pieces of bull crap, I’d copy down the names of these people and report them myself to ICE, at least for a day before I got fired. Anyway…
The other thing that the Board approved here was to take “Gender” off the list of descriptions, at the request of the transgendered community/advocates. I’m sorry – but you’re gender stays the same. I don’t care if you have 500 surgeries, a boy is still a boy and a girl’s still a girl at the chromosomal level. Second, this takes away another piece of identification. There are lots of people out there that I can’t exactly tell what gender they are (just because of the way they look/dress), so this piece of info is helpful and even necessary at times.
I’m sorry, but San Francisco has stepped way over the line here. Hopefully other cities/states won’t accept these ID’s as valid and SF will have to change their system.
