No doubt it’s disrespectful to laugh. But go ahead and do so anyway. From KTLA.com in South Carolina:

A transgender rights advocacy group says the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles restricted a teen’s free speech rights by asking him to remove his makeup for a driver’s license photo.

Sixteen-year-old Chase Culpepper went to take his driver’s test in Anderson in March.

Chase considers himself “gender non-conforming,” he told CNN affiliate WYFF. He regularly wears makeup and girl’s clothes.

After passing his driver’s test, Chase went to take his photo for his license. But an employee at the office asked him to remove his makeup.

The employee told Chase he couldn’t wear “a disguise” and didn’t look “like a boy should,” the teen told the affiliate.

CNN reached out to the state DMV and was told it had a policy specifying the requirements for the photograph.

“At no time will an applicant be photographed when it appears that he or she is purposely altering his or her appearance so that the photo would misrepresent his or her identity,” the policy says.

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
