  1. Wouldn’t that also prevent you from using a birth certificate and a SS card? Unless the full text of the bill has exemptions for those…

    1. Yes, exactly. They would no longer be valid for obtaining a marriage license.

    Some clarification would’ve been good regarding “opposite sex.” Assuming you meant “opposite of one’s initial/assigned-at-birth legal sex.”

    1. Sigh….no it means opposite sex post transition as they see us as gay men or lesbians trying to fly under the radar. They don’t acknowledge our transition. They would have no problem with us marrying someone of the opposite sex prior to transition.

    The bill removes many forms of what would be considered standard identification.

    See all the lines that have been struck through:

    It’s always Texas. Great state if you can understand it.
