Now political correctness is making its way into your wallet: Queensland scraps GENDERS from its driver's licences after receiving complaints from the LGBTI community
•The Queensland Government will roll out new gender-less driver's licences
•The move comes as members of the LGBTI community argued discrimination
•But Department of Transport said technological advancements are the reason

By Nkayla Afshariyan For Daily Mail Australia

Published: 01:56 AEDT, 12 January 2018  | Updated: 02:01 AEDT, 12 January 2018 

The Queensland Government has scrapped a requirement for gender to be shown on all driver's licences, after complaints from the LGBTI community.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) confirmed that height was also removed as a requirement, after concerns the collection of personal information was potentially discriminatory.

However, the Department said the move towards gender-less licences was due to the need to make driver's and marine licences compliant with new anti-discrimination laws, according to the Courier Mail.

Another reason for change was due to improvements in technology, a spokesman for Roads Minister Mark Bailey said.


'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,' a department document said.

Other information, such as eye and hair colour, is also being removed from records attached to licences.

Red?

There's no x on my licence.

It doesn't mention gender at all.

It also doesn't mention religion, height, hair colour, eye colour, weight, or anything else.

Why is it so important to you that you have your gender recorded on your licence - is it hard to tell just from looking at you?

Tell me  Mr. Baron.  Grab your NSW Licence and tell me if your sex and height are listed on it.


Red - are they?

Do you have a cock Gregg - then like it or not you're a Male

Licence details are a necessary part of Law Enforcement

Police don't have time to jerk around with drivers ascertaining whether they are male, female or transsexual

This is just another prong from the Left wing wankers always looking at weakening the Law

Red, please pay attention.

A WA drivers licence does not record gender.

Does yours?

Moreover, the police officer pulling me over doesn't need to know if I have a cock or not.

Why would they (unless Sir Booby has joined the force, of course)?

You can be X if you like,  personally I think if you have a cock then M should be on your licence if you have a vagina then F should be there


And prey tell....what is that date of the issue of that Licence, Mr Baron?

Why would they need to know that?

Have you ever been asked your gender when pulled over for a random breast breath test?

I certainly haven't.

A police office has never asked me my gender.

Whether it be at a booze bus, for speeding, or for a random licence check, I have never been asked if I'm a man, woman, or transsexual.

Why would a traffic cop need to know that?

Red wants every traffic cop to know he has a cock, but he's not sure why.

Strange.

I just did a check and, from my very basic research, it appears that QLD is the only state or territory that DOES currently show gender on a drivers licence.

Is that right?

Don't know, but I do know NSW and WA do not have sex recorded on the Licence.

And red still can't tell us why it's important to have it shown.

Does he have his gender recorded on his Medicare card?

His Blockbuster membership card?

His credit card?

His Frequent Flyers card?

His Myer One card?

I want to know why he has not been so outraged about his gender not being recorded on his Licence, previously and just today.  That's why I have asked when his current Licence was issued.  But, he is no longer in the Building.

It's pretty obvious that red gets outraged at what the media tells him to be outraged about.

Its not on Victorian licences either.


Although it did make my day seeing a report in the Herald/Sun about it and all the Victorian rightwards hysterically saying that it was "political correctness gone mad", not realising that their own Victorian licences don't have gender either.

And why is it even necessary anyway?

Still waiting for an answer from red on that one.

Are there different speed limits for women?

Are men allowed to have a higher blood alcohol concentration than women?

Is it okay for a woman to operate a phone whilst driving, but not a man?
