SO, I DID A THING!
I got fed up with people giving me shit about my license Monday, so yesterday I called my regular pediatrician, and asked for him to write a couple of sentences saying the fact that I was male predominated* over the fact I was born female and sign it. USING THE WORD PREDOMINATED IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK. And then I filled out the form at the DMV just like I was renewing my license and 2 hours of waiting later: new ID
For anyone looking to change their drivers license, permit or non-driver ID in the state of NY, you do not need to have surgery of any kind, and you technically don’t need to be on hormones. All you need is a signed letter from an MD, a LCSW, a PhD, or some other doctor with their own letterhead stating one gender predominates over the other. (And $12.50)
