A 16 year old teenager from the US is suing the Department of Motor Vehicles.
16 year old Chase Culpepper from Anderson, South Carolina, was so offended by the DMV that he turned to the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund in order to file a law suit and fight for his rights to… wear makeup. According to official reports, the 16 year old boy went to get his driver’s license, but he chose to wear his favorite daytime makeup. However, the DMV forced him to remove his makeup because it was confusing people about his real gender. Chase was offended by the demand as he believes posing for a photograph without makeup is actually a misrepresentation of himself.
The TLDEF has filed a lawsuit on Chase’s behalf. They believe that the DMV have violated Chase’s rights of free expression and speech by discriminating against his gender choice.
