OBAMA APPOINTS FIRST TRANSGENDER WOMAN TO POST


By CLEMENTE LISI
January 4, 2010


President Obama has named the first transgender woman to work as a Senior Technical Advisor to the Commerce Department, accoridng to a new report.

In a statement, Simpson, a member of the National Center for Transgender Equality's board of directors, said that "as one of the first transgender presidential appointees to the federal government, I hope that I will soon be one of hundreds, and that this appointment opens future opportunities for many others."

ABC News reported on its Web site today that Simpson had been given the position.

Simpson recently served as Deputy Director in Advanced Technology Development at Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, Ariz.

Simpson, who was born male and named Mitchell , was key in convincing the military contractor to add gender identity and expression to its equal employment opportunity policy.

She also ran for Congress and served as a delegate for then-Sen. Hillary Clinton to the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

    Yes... we all know how tolerant and open minded fundamentalist/ extremist/ radical Muslims are.

    Women not wearing a veil or wearing makeup can be stoned... I'm sure a transsexual cabinet member would be taken seriously abroad.

    "...as one of the first transgender presidential appointees to the federal government, I hope that I will soon be one of hundreds, and that this appointment opens future opportunities for many others." Apparently they were confused at birth which means to me a decreased mental capacity and facility. Let's just get all the mentally ill to hold offices in our government. On the other hand, I bet they could possibly do a better job at it than what we currently have in office. Just a way to get the GLBT folks into power positions to push their agendas. Get rid of them as they do not speak for ALL AMERICANS!

    Since he has appointed a Pedophile, and numerous communists, corrupt CEO's, and has re-nominated Bernanke, this is just par for the course. This is a conglomeration of the scum of this country being placed in the government. This man,0bama, has lost his ever loving mind, and should be rushed to the nearest funny farm for deep and extensive psychological evaluation. I suspect their will many surprises when the open the lid on this moron. Can we impeach him now?

    Is she qualified? If so, that's all that should matter. But if she's so qualified, why do they have to make such a big deal out of this. Hire her and be done with it. Nevertheless, if she's as hopeless as the majority of his appointees, then focusing on her being a transgender is only another one of his ploys to show how wonderful he is supposed to be and ensure he gets the transgender vote.

    Am I homophobia?

    The grammatically correct version would be "Are you homophobic?"

    Are you heterophobic? Do heterosexuals frighten you? Does traditional marriage disgust you? Are you a heterophobic bigot? Are you hateful?

    Get over yourself.
