GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP/CBS Local) – A woman says her request for a specialty license plate to honor her wife has been denied by the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles.

The DMV issued a statement saying the agency has the right to deny any license plate it deems “offensive to good taste and decency.”

The Greenville woman said it’s ridiculous she can’t celebrate her wife this way. Bright notes her request has no curse words or hate speech. She said she previously had a plate reading “OUTLSBN,” for “out lesbian.”
