Culpepper v. Shwedo (USA)

image_490

A 16-year-old gender non-conforming boy and his mom sued the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles for sex discrimination. When he attempted to get his first driver’s license, Chase Culpepper was told by the DMV that he could not take his license photo unless he removed the makeup that he wears on a regular basis.

We hope Culpepper prevails, as prohibiting males to wear make up is based on the sexist stereotype that only females wear make up.

  1. He should be able to wear makeup if he wants to.

    “When he attempted to get his first driver’s license, Chase Culpepper was told by the DMV that he could not take his license photo unless he removed the makeup that he wears on a regular basis.”

    This is wrong….

    What do they say to women with short hair who don’t look stereotypically “feminine”? Do they tell them to go put on some makeup and a dress, fix their hair, etc.
