Big Deal! I'd feel better if a hundred small town papers endorsed it!

one would hope that "small town" papers have better sense than to endorse something as foolish as promoting transvestites.

"Transgenderism" is a designer issue from the radical Left. As is its main characteristic, the Progressivist movement once again is trying to take power the Constitution meant for citizens---this time by suggesting millions of dollars (which could be used in better ways) be flushed down the "transgender" toilet by altering public bathrooms nationwide, against all basic morality, tradition and reason. Attempting to force children (and sexual abuse and rape survivors) to share public bathrooms and showers with those who "feel" like the other gender is nothing short of hideous social engineering. I have sympathy for those having genitalia that matches their chromosomes but who are mentally confused--but our society does not have to capitulate to that confusion. At this time there is a woman who wants to identify as a cat; should states be forced to fund human-sized litterboxes? There is also a grown man who wants to identify as a little girl; should parents be told he must be allowed to play with their children at playgrounds? Where would it end? The answer: it never ends with Progressives, who live and breath the idea of perpetually correcting the perceived flaws of freedom-loving Constituionalists who revere the power of the individual over inclusion in a group--especially a made-up group called "transgender".

You realize that this is "Red Meat" to us (Trans people)! You wanted to stir things a little! OK! First, Read most of the stories and you'll notice that it is we who are the individuals fighting the group, not the other way around. We.re so marginalized that most of us think we're the only one to be burdened with this. How can you get more "individualized" than that?Trust me, it's not a political ploy. It's a real thing. There are many (not all) of us that are republicans by thought and deeds until you get to this. Then they just have to vote democrat. I was talking to a Gay Doctor I know about the election and he admitted to me that he believed Hilary was a crook and Trump was the better of the two, but He was still voting for Hilary because of the republicans stance on everything LGBT. Caitlin Jenner is a Republican. Donna Milo is a Republican (She ran for congress against Debbie W. Schulz) I am a Republican and I know of quite a few more. I am welcome in my assy man's office, I am welcome in the County Republican offices and I am known in both. You'll see more and more Trans and Gay republicans coming out. As Caitlyn said "It was easier coming out as Trans than coming out as a Republican!" How does it feel when you are shown that your dearly held theories are just Paranoid Nonsense?
