The state of Michigan is being sued by the ACLU on behalf six transgender people over a rule that makes life impossible, even dangerous. The rule enacted in 2011 requires transgender people to present a birth certificate that indicates their authentic gender in order to have their gender marker changed on their drivers license.
Needless to say having a gender marker that is obviously not congruent with your presentation makes even the most essential life tasks nearly impossible.
Many states do not amend birth certificates and some make sterilization a prerequisite.
The state has 20 days to respond to the lawsuit according to Fox affiliate ktvu
