@SoniEx2 no worries

i don't use this specific account too much these days but i'm still a regular poster

@FuchsiaShock
Oh god I thought that was roosh v from the avatar, it looks pretty similar at a glance 😬

@FuchsiaShock
Ha my state adds a permanent public record to your license # that pulls up anytime someone looks you up that you're a TRANSSEXUAL so there was no downside to getting an X marker for me.
Cops already know no matter what I do.

@FuchsiaShock fuck gender markers

also fuck legal names tbh, just give everyone a random number

it's not like everyone already has several numbers (tax, social security, passport, id card…)

@FuchsiaShock German drivers licenses and passports ("Personalausweis") have no gender marker. Never did (since 1945). And if even german bureaucrats don't need it, nobody does :)

@jaddy @FuchsiaShock

UK now allows non gendered titles (Mx) or none at all on a driving licence but there is a gender marker hardcoded into the number, I'm not sure what happens to that if someone transitions (there seems to be no provision for non binary people). Passport is just a unique number with no reference to gender coded into it.

@vfrmedia german kind-of soc.sec.no ("Rentenversicherungsnummer") has a gendered 2-digit part. You get a new number when you transition. I think that's one of the very few official things still hardcoded binary gendered.

But they came in trouble with the new official enby genders "divers" and "none", so they decided to "include" enbys into the female number range 50-99.

For german soc.sec, there's now "males" and "others" 🤦

@FuchsiaShock

@jaddy @FuchsiaShock

these are the rules apparently
ukdriving.org.uk/licencenumber

"month of birth (+5 for the first character if female)"

it looks as if the only reason it's in there was an assumption they could use birth sex as a simple way to separate all applicants into two numerical groups to try to uncluster otherwise not-evenly-distributed birth months

which really doesn't make a lot of sense when there are already random digits at the end.

@FuchsiaShock yeah, I agree they have no business putting a gender on the license. If you want to request a specific gendered officer to do a search, that should be your right full stop
@FuchsiaShock i guess cops used to not be ass. i've been happy to see cops in other countries, for example in germany the police woke me up so that i wouldn't miss my train once.

american cops are just bad news

@fluffy cops have always been bad.as an institution, just some of them occasionally believe that they're supposed to do the occasional good deed

@FuchsiaShock they seem pretty decent in some other countries I've been in. I really do think the anglosphere is just really bad.
