NC lesbian license plate

 

The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles approved a woman's request for a lesbian license plate in honor of her wife.

Well, it wouldn't have been easy for Amy Bright who had asked for an "LSBNSNLV" plate for "lesbians in love". North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles at first refused her request, which it said was "offensive to good taste and decency".

“I think that’s ridiculous. I’m trying to celebrate the love I have for my wife, so I don’t see how that’s in poor taste,” she said. “How can a celebration of love be in poor taste?”

I also don't see how it could be offensive. I mean you first have to understand that the plate means "lesbians in love"!

Amy had appealed the decision stating that her First Amendment rights had been violated. Finally, the Division of Motor Vehicles changed its decision and approved the license plate.
