Georgia Denies Man AMAZEBALLS Pro-Gay Vanity Plates, Approves Awful Non-Gay Ones On The Reg??

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT


If you're in Georgia, and you want to show that you support the LGBT community by paying extra for vanity license plates, you're out of luck.

If you want to show how much you love beer (because that's awesome to mix with driving), it just depends on how you say it. Their approval system is both arbitrary and capricious!

Honestly, Georgia, this f***ing sucks… and it needs to change!

So what plates were denied? Georgia driver James Gilbert's 1st, 2nd, AND 3rd choices: 4GAYLIB, GAYPWR, or GAYGUY.

The subject of vanity plates is up to the discretion of system that deems what you submit as "obscene according to current community standards." You can't be obscene or defamatory against a person, group, religion, race or ethnicity. So apparently being a homosexual, or just the use of the word 'gay' in Georgia is considered obscene? BOO.

According to the source and the list of approved and banned plates, here are some ridiculous examples:

GOTBEER: banned
L0VWINE: approved
HVYGUNS: banned
1BIGGUN: approved
HATERS: banned
HATERS1: approved

Here's what James had to say about it all:

“It’s not like I was asking for something that was vulgar or over the top. Denying someone the right to put gay on their tag, that’s political. If I want I could get a tag that said straight man, but because it had gay on it, it’s not available.”

That's some double standard bullshiz right there! We're glad he's filed a lawsuit to get the system, established in 1968, changed!

Now if we could only get other government views of the LGBT community changed, too…

Oh, and if you're wondering, plates like IH8GAYS and GAYSUX are banned — probably because they're attacks — because we can't imagine they're banned just because of the word "gay." Right? RIGHT??

Good luck, James! Equality for all!

    Do you FING think they were trying to save the guy from have his car vandalized or worse? Or maybe nothing would happen. Then what if the guy sues the state because the should have "forseen" the danger? MaYBE THEY ARE GOING TO ER ON THE SIDE OF of caution. Discrimination or public safety, why not bumper sticker his car up…..or does he feel a need to whine about discrimination.

    ThIsIsFaLSe is absolutely correct!

    This guy is suing because his tag was declined, but I bet he'd sue if it was approved and he was targeted because of it.

    Every damn decision people make isn't always about racism, discrimination, etc. Sometimes it's just plain common sense.

    On behalf of the state of Georgia no one gives a fuck about whether you think it sucks or not

    Have you thought that maybe the person at the desk denied it because of their personal beliefs? You can't just tag an ENTIRE state as haters of the gay community.
