That's... seriously fucking cool! :D
I swear this state's structure rapid-cycles between "lawful stupid" and "seriously fucking cool" to me.

@irisjaycomics oh hell yeah
@irisjaycomics do you know where the person in the tweet got their source? I can't seem to find anything else on it?

Be mindful that by changing your ID in the State of WA that you will then be in a database that is shared with the federal government, where your gender marker change could be revealed, shared or used to put you on a list.
Where I'm getting my info: I went to the actual public comment period that took place before the law changed to allow enby id in mid-August of this year, and it was one of the biggest points raised by transgender people who otherwise supported the law change.
@raye i already changed my gender marker on my driver's license and i literally scream about how trans i am online constantly, so if there's a list i'm probably already on it. also just let me feel GOOD about this small victory for our state, damn friendo
@irisjaycomics now that the state where I was born will let me change my birth certificate and WA just passed this, I am starting to make plans to change all my paperwork and ID.
I want this change too, but I also want everyone who moves forward with it to have full disclosure of the mixed reality and challenges.
