Via Right Wing Watch comes news of Michigan Republican Paul Scott from Grand Blanc, who is running on a four-pronged platform. One of those prongs is this:

I will make it a priority to ensure transgender individuals will not be allowed to change the sex on their driver’ license in any circumstance.

Uh huh! And why?

When asked to explain how such a mandate from the Secretary of State would benefit Michigan, he said it was about “preventing people who are males genetically from dressing as a woman and going into female bathrooms.”


In other news, apparently you have to show your drivers’ license before you use public restrooms in Michigan. What if you really have to go and you left your license in your other pants? Michigan sounds awful!
