Russia has listed transsexual and transgender people among those who will no longer qualify for driving licences.
Fetishism, exhibitionism and voyeurism are also included as "mental disorders" now barring people from driving.
Wow this is stupid and sure is wrong in my opinion.
Why can't transgender people drive? I just can't believe it....
It must be against human rights eh?.
I think the real problem is drink driving...that is the cause for the so many accidents.

Why have the resident russophiles not stopped by to explain how this is actually all the U.S.'s fault yet? Or did I miss it?
It is American fault because America made Russia paranoid about this issue.
I don't endorse such laws though I also don't accept that drivers license is "unalienable human right"
Btw they also making rules softer for some categories of physically disabled people.
With all this LGBT I don't know who is more hypocritical Russians or the West.
Consider this Sochi 2014 song. West says there is "prosecution" of anything LGBT and T.A.T.U. was famous exactly for this lol
Excellent point. Next time I hear my neighbor beating his kids within the borders of his own house, I'm just going to let his family deal with it. I got too many problems of my own to care what's happening to anyone outside of my immediate presence.

Except these sexual preferences are not insanity. Look in the DSM. Every disorder contains one or both of the following criteria: 1.) the person poses a threat to their own being or others; 2.) the behavior causes impairment in the person's social, occupational, or educational activities. These sexual preferences don't fall into either of these categories. Even the psychiatrists of Russia say that these new laws are appalling.
