Amanda Simpson, who was named by President Obama to be senior technical adviser for the Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security, has worked in the field for over 30 years. But prominent figures on the religious right are claiming that she was picked only as part of some transsexual agenda. www.huffingtonpost.com...

I donno...is it trolling to open a thread with the full expectation that it will make some folks nuts? Hope not...though I am interested to see what kind of comments this development will elicit. Things are a little looser (less uptight...not morally ) in Canada, and this wouldn't create a lot of stir. I'm interested in the reaction generated on ATS. Are we cool?
I'm wholly outraged. I've been fantasizing about and masturbating to every other senior technical adviser for the Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security since I've been alive and now I cant.
Or can I? Hmmmm....

It wouldn't exist either with more respect and tolerance from the homosexual side too. Of course that threads blowing up right now.

There shouldn't be an issue with homosexuals; and homophobia isn't just hurting gays, it's hurting the quality of life for non-gays just as much, because they're too worried about "being gay" to express any feelings with anyone of the same sex, or have a meaningful relationship, or utter a single sentence or perform a single act of love, because all that stuff is "too gay." So they sit on the couch, apart from one another, like strangers in a room.
