MOSCOW, RU – The Russian government has reportedly banned transsexual and transgender people from getting driver’s licenses.

Russia’s government released a legislative document that lists a new set of “medical controls” that could disqualify some people from driving altogether or put limitations on their driving rights.

The reason behind it?

The government says Russia has had one too many road accidents. Medical conditions like blindness and epilepsy were listed in the document. But “gender identity disorders” like “transsexualism” and “dual-role transvestism” also made the list.

The Russian government also included “disorders of sexual preference” like “pedophilia.”
