The District of Columbia is marking a first.

Bending to the politically correct movement, the D.C. government on Tuesday began letting applicants for driver’s permits to use an “X” instead of an “F” for female or an “M” for male under the category “sex.”

The nation’s capital is the first jurisdiction to make such a move.

Oregon is next in line, and California isn’t far behind.

Mayor Muriel Bowser endorses the third option as a “commitment to inclusivity.”

“Washington, D.C., has long been a leader in LGBTQ rights and gender issues, and this change is the most recent example of our city’s commitment to inclusivity,” she said Friday. “The safety and well-being of all Washingtonians is my top priority, and whenever we are presented with an opportunity to improve the lives of residents and better align our policies with D.C. values, I will take it. I hope to see other jurisdictions follow in our footsteps.”

This, after all, is LGBT Pride Month.
