Queensland Driver's Licences to go Gender Free.
Gender will no longer be listed on Queensland road and marine licences, in a move that has been hailed “political correctness gone mad”.
The state’s Department of Transport and Main Roads last night confirmed the licencing scheme overhaul in a bid to comply with new anti-discrimination laws, The Courier-Mail reports.
The requirement to detail height will also be removed, along with personal information including eye and hair colour.
According to an internal document obtained by the newspaper, the move follows complaints from the LGBTIQ community that the information may be “perceived as discriminatory”.
“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,” the leaked document reportedly stated.
Is it a good idea? Should we no longer be referred to as Male or Female? What's your opinion?
