    A great case for a Federal court. Texas is just setting itself up for a big fall on this one.

    Give me a fucking break. She can get a license, she just has to use her unmarried name for the time being.

    In the meantime, people can push to have the law changed.

    It's all a process. Stop being bitches about it.

    I wonder if she knew about the same sex marriage law in Texas that has not pass yet. She should just have her last name put on her Driver License for now until the law has been pass. Just need to be patience.

    All her current legal identification documentation (including with photo ID) has her married name. They can't just look at a birth certificate and believe it's her name without verifying with a photo ID with the same name. Sometimes when you think someone is an idiot you should rethink it just to make sure it's them and not you.

    Oh, she "just doesn't want others to have to go through" this. Others will be fine. She needs to take responsibility for herself, and leave "others" out of it. But of course that is impossible for a moralizing white Liberal.

    I feel bad for the kid. Imagine being raised by these cows.

    She can get photo ID with her former name. It may be a pain in the ass, but all said, it's a high-class "problem."

    That's disgusting, Jack_NNJ.

    One of the most awful expressions of anti-gay hatred I have ever seen here. A product of a possibly disturbed mind.

    Clearly you are not gay yourself, clearly you are here to disrupt a gay site. And to spread your homophobic Right Wing propaganda. And not only with this latest outrage, but in virtually everything you post here.

    You are a revolting individual, as you prove time & again. I wonder who here will come to your defense? I hope the usual characters do, so all the homophobic rats can sink with the same ship.

    I honestly think every child needs a father figure or Dad. Just how I think I guess!!!

    And does every child also need a mother figure? Precluding a male gay couple from being parents to a child?

    This part strikes me as very interesting:

    My name is already legally Wilson,” she said. “I don’t know if a judge will even grant me a name change from Wilson to Wilson.”

    I would love to see a judge refuse to make a change which is not a change and see how it plays from there.

    Interesting! Certainly remarkable to see a state government refuse to recognize a person's federally-recognized legal name. From a legal standpoint, she's got an open and shut case, because people have a property right in drivers' licenses. Texas will take a sound, swift beating on this. But one does have to admire the trolls doing their best to resist the tidal wave of always-terrifying Progress.

    Texas does not at this moment have the legal mechanism in place to recognize the woman's married name.

    This is an over-the-top shitstorm, like everything metta posts.

    Very sad. You hope it might be an isolated situation, but I doubt it. For all the "gains" that have been made, there seems to be an abundant supply of "steps back" based on old bigoted laws....and minds.

    This is lame on my part, but after seeing the replies on this thread I think I've actually found a person more jaded than I am in life.

    More ultra conservative hatred from the Giant Tea Party State of Texas, what else is new from that 270,000 square mile flat, humid shithole of cowboys, pickup trucks, oilfields, rattlesnakes, pecan trees, urban sprawl, and NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLSicon_question.gificon_mad.gif

    being denied a driver's license in a place like Texas is sort of like being denied a lifeline. It IS a BIG deal.
