What do you have when you put a male into a dress and let him call himself a woman?
The (((elites))) say you have a trans woman, who should be allowed to use the women’s bathroom and lockerroom.
The general public would be less tolerant, with the terms “chick with a d*ck” and “shemale” coming to mind.
A country crazy enough to put Barack Obama in the White House is also crazy enough to elect trannies to local office. Expect more of them.
State legislative races don’t usually draw a lot of national attention – but Virginia’s House District 13 race is: it pits a Republican incumbent known for unsuccessfully sponsoring a so-called “bathroom bill” against a transgender woman.
If she succeeds in unseating Delegate Bob Marshall, Democrat Danica Roem would be the country’s first openly transgender state lawmaker.
Roem’s background may set her apart as a political candidate, but her message to voters in this district, in the outer Washington, D.C. suburbs, is pretty standard for a local politician. She’s focusing on bread-and-butter “quality of life” issues, she says, like roads funding, schools, and water infrastructure.
Roem argues she’s uniquely informed about local issues and prepared to problem-solve because of her years working as a newspaper reporter in the region.
“I’ve dedicated my professional career to vetting information…and then reporting the truth as it is, not what other people hope it should be,” she said. “…And when I’m in office I can do the same thing.”
But most of the attention has focused on Roem’s status as a transgender woman challenging an incumbent who known for his opposition to LGBT rights. Marshall has been in office for 26 years – since Roem, now 33, was a child growing up in the area.
Marshall hasn’t responded to repeated requests for interviews with NPR, but he has talked to conservative radio hosts like Sandy Rios of American Family Radio.
In an interview in September, Marshall said the race is about more than local policy debates.
“Danica clearly is out here doing this for making a marker in the national character that you can engage in this behavior – which clearly goes against the laws of nature and nature’s God – and hold public office to make decisions on behalf of the common good,” Marshall said. “That is what is kind of at stake here.”
In that interview, Rios and Marshall also speculated about whether or not Roem has had surgery as part of her transition from male to female.
In an interview at her campaign office in Manassas, Roem called the discussion “gross,” and said Marshall should focus on substantive issues, not her gender.
The story goes on to note that the LGBT movement has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to get “her” elected. That makes this election about her penis, not her platform.is
