James Cyrus Gilbert is fighting against the antiquated system of censorship that the Vanity License Plate review process is comprised of.  His simple goal of a gay pride message was shot down and he’s now suing.

The news has gone viral and a German magazine reported the case and weighed in on the personal side of the story: Mr. Gilbert is an activist who has a dream of promoting equality and the right to be heterosexual.  His car tag was his “voice” of choice, and now he’s left with a standard tag and a huge battle on his hands.

If people are willing to pay the money, their car tag should be allowed.  Free speech will likely win this battle and the strike-down list of “offensive” words must hit the road.

Here’s his lawyer’s website:

Aus Der Spiegel, [translation: From “The Mirror”] Gilber’s chosen message was denied because the word “gay” is considered obscene and is on a multi-page censorship list.  The funny thing about this is that we can print ANY message on a bumper sign but for some reason tags are just … “special…” and are censored.

As the case progresses, more will be reported as the news comes in.
