NBC "News:" Voter ID Laws "Disproportionately" Affect Transgender People Who Are Going By Different Made-Up Names But Who Have Never Filed Paperwork to Make That Official So We Must Get Rid of Voter ID Laws Immediately

No they're really claiming that.

First it was "blacks and hispaics don't know how to find the local DMV to get ID so we have to get rid of voter ID entirely."

Now it's "transgenders can't be asked to go by their real legal name while voting, or be expected to change their name legally, so we just have to get rid of voter ID entirely."

You know, when I buy a ticket for an airplane or make a withdrawal at a bank or, yes, go to my precinct to vote, I'm not allowed to just say, "I'm Ace of Spades." I can't just give them my Fake Name. Official transactions tend to require your real given name, not your made up name like "Shercules Moonflower Sassdragon" or whatever.

Oh go fuck yourselves stupid. Ah, I see you've already done that.

thanks to redridinghood.

Jazz Shaw responds to this nonsense:

The primary example of this sort of "disenfranchisement" that NBC came up with was a Tennessee voter named Henry Seaton who is a female-to-male transgender resident. Seaton claims that poll workers inspected the voter ID that was presented and raised questions because the picture on the ID appeared to show a male while the gender was listed as female. Seaton claims to have been forced to "out myself as transgender" and feared possible harassment or worse.

You have to read quite a way further down in the article to learn a few more things about this incident. First of all, Seaton is listed as "a transgender justice advocate for the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee." Also, after the ID was examined, Seaton was allowed to vote without any issues. Several other trans people are featured in this lengthy article, but not one of them claimed that they weren't actually allowed to vote. If it had actually happened, it seems like NBC would have been shouting that from the rooftops, doesn't it?

Most of the article is just another lengthy diatribe condemning the idea of voter ID laws, listing the various states where that requirement exists. Using the trans angle is just another way to claim that "underrepresented minorities" are disproportionately "harmed" by such laws.

The reality is that every state has provisions for people to have valid forms of identification for many purposes beyond just voting. You are legally allowed to change your name and obtain a new ID (as many transgender people, including Seaton, do every year) but the process is intentionally laborious. It's not supposed to be easy to simply declare that you have a totally different name so you can escape your creditors or other obligations.

If any transgender person wants to change their name and follows the legal process to do so, they can.

So if I tried to vote dressed to look like Freddy Krueger and they couldn't match my masked face to my picture on my ID, that's a problem with the system? And we need to get rid of all ID when voting because some people like playing dress-up?

Should banks also assume I am who I say I am when I show up wearing a Claude Raines Invisible Man full-face bandage mask? Should they just trust that my bandages "look honest"?

At what point does the infinite parade of unreasonable demands by transgender extremists stop?

And by the way: Blacks and hispanics can get ID just fine.

It's just another lie peddled by Democrats to get rid of voting integrity so that their paid "vote fortifiers" can harvest votes from anywhere and pass them off as valid.
