The Old License
Chrisopher, I don't know you but thanks for posting a photo of your driver's license to flickr so I could use it here. If we ever meet, I'll be sure to thank you in person. Please note that "fakeidfree.com" is also using your picture.
The New License
Now this guy I know and I assure you that his name is NOT John Joseph Sampledriver. But I wouldn't blame him if he adopted the name. It has a nice porn-star ring to it.
Now, the interesting thing about the agent asking me for a second piece of ID wasn't because my ID was nothing more than a (probably) easily forgeable piece of paper between two sheets of laminated plastic, but because my driver's license didn't indicate that I am a male.
That's right, the old ID doesn't show that I am of the XY persuasion.
So, I pulled out a piece of ID that did.
My firearms license.
But, really, that still doesn't prove anything. We'd need a pat-down or a body scanner or a strip search for that.
But why the heck does it matter anyway?!!?
"Oooh! A transvestite! S/he must be a terrorist!"
Your post mad me laugh. My last British Columbia driver's license had me as a male the entire 5 years I had it. I always meant to go in and change it but never did, until last July when it came up for renewal. Luckily I was never stopped by the police and I always use my passport at the airport.
