    Teen sues DMV after being told to remove makeup

    A 16-year old in South Carolina sued the states Department of Motor vehicles on Tuesday because the agency won't allow him to take a driver's license photo wearing makeup.

    I predict that this young person will win this lawsuit.

    This is all about the state of South Carolina trying to control people.

    Re: Teen sues DMV after being told to remove makeup

    I was at the NC DMV once when they made a woman go into the bathroom and remove her make-up (which looked like it was put on by spray paint) and to remove her wig before they would take her picture. In that context, I don't see a problem with it. The state of SC said they did this for the same reason when I read about this a couple days ago. I will give them the benefit of the doubt on this one, and not jump to a conclusion that this is some right wing religious thing or some anti-LGBT thing... unless evidence, real evidence, comes to light saying otherwise. At first, when I read the beginning of the article I read, they made it sound like it was some anti-LGBT thing, but buried way down in the article was the law that required the DMV to do it, so I took a second look and came to the new conclusion this is being fussed about simply because it IS in the state of SC, a red state, not because of what they did for the reason they did it... the law, which to me, makes sense. When you go to the DMV, you're not going to Glamor Shots to get a portrait taken.

    Correct, and I could be wrong but I do believe that South Carolina is going to lose this lawsuit.

    Let's wait and see what happens.

    The kid needs help, but as far as his license I don't care what he wears.

    To me it seems totally off the wall. But truth be told, I hope SC loses.

    The kid needs to be left alone, who is this kid hurting?

    It looks to me like South Carolina is stepping on this kid.

    Maybe, maybe not. I have no way to predict it. If the state can show where they have enforced this law before (like I know first hand the state of NC does) and not just on LBGT's, then the state of SC may have a pretty strong chance of prevailing in court. However, if they cannot show that they enforce the law across the board or that they do but only against LBGT's, then the state of SC is screwed.

    Like you said, let's wait and see what happens.

    I can see both sides on this really. On one hand an ID is supposed to identify who you REALLY are and with makeup and a wig it doesn't. However, if that is what you are normally wearing, then taking all that stuff off won't look like you then so what's the point?

    The purpose of ID is???? Identification!! He can play dress up after he gets his photo taken. Find another cause to get behind because this isn't it, you just look irrational and quite frankly stupid.
