Russia Bans Transgendered From Driving: Isn’t Communism Wonderful?

0

Attention all left-wingers who are pushing this country towards more socialism and centralized government control: Look at your future, should you prevail.

Putin’s Communist Russia has a new solution to  a percieved crisis in traffic deaths and incidents: Ban transsexuals and transgender people from driving, as well as a host of other “mental disorders” based exclusively on people’s sexual orientation

The decree also empowers officials to ban transsexual and transgender people from driving, along with others suffering from fetishism, exhibitionism or voyeurism.

It’s all under the guise “to promote public health” and it applies to those with “gender identity disorders, disorders of sexual preference and psychological and behavioral disorders associated with sexual development and orientation.”

Read, “gay, lesbian, transgender, transexual and any other thing they deem unfit.”

The rules also apply to people with schizophrenia, “mood” disorders and “neurotic, stress-related” problems.

So those of you thinking that Socialism and it’s natural outcome when you run out of other people’s money – Communism – is a grand and romantic alternative to American Capitalism, check it out. This is your utopia.

The new provision is part of a document that defines what medical conditions will disqualify a motorist from driving. Most of the conditions are physical impairments, but the new term “disorders of sexual preference” falls under “mental and behavioral disorders.”

The provision references a set of “mental and behavioral disorders” as defined by the World Health Organization, which include all transgender people, bigender, asexuals, transvestites, crossdressers, and people who want a sex change.

In other words. any man who dresses up as a women, or vice versa, should be denied a driver’s license.

The Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights said the decree “demonstrates bias against certain individuals and groups of citizens, as well as significantly restricting the rights and freedoms of citizens as a whole.”

But it doesn’t end there. From The Christian Times:

Russia has amended its road safety laws that ban those with certain disabilities from driving, hoping it will reduce fatalities from traffic accidents.

Signed by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the new decree on road safety prohibited limb amputees, people with hereditary eye diseases, and those with a height shorter than 150 centimeters, or five feet, from driving.

Gambling addicts and kleptomaniacs may also be denied driving licenses under the new rules.

But in a bizarre amendment, Russia also announced that licenses won’t be issued to citizens who are suffering from “personality and behavior disorders” including “disorders of sexual preference.”

In fact, the new road safety law listed transsexualism and transvestism among thehealth conditions that could prove dangerous to drivers. Thus, transsexuals and transgenders were barred from driving.
