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:
