PONTIAC, Mich. (WJBK) – A transgender man says an Oakland County court denied him and his fiancé a marriage license because his sex change was not complete.

Jordan Swan, 25, tells FOX 2′s Simon Shaykhet that he’s taken the necessary surgical steps to become a man, including a hysterectomy and hormone therapy, but it isn’t enough in the eyes of the court. That’s because Swan’s birth certificate still says he’s a female. Same-sex marriage is not recognized in the state of Michigan.

“I think it’s complete bullsh*t,” said Swan. “I’m getting every right that I have taken away from me.”
