    Va.’s first openly transgender elected official

    Say it ain't so, and she's a metalhead too.

    Danica Roem is Va.’s first openly transgender elected official, unseating conservative in House race

    Democrat Danica Roem ousted longtime incumbent Del. Robert G. Marshall (R) Tuesday, becoming the first openly transgender elected official in Virginia — and one of very few in the nation.
    The race between Roem, 33, and Marshall, 73, focused on traffic and other local issues in Prince William County but also exposed the nation’s fault lines over gender identity. It pitted a local journalist who began her physical gender transition four years ago against an outspoken social conservative who has referred to himself as Virginia’s “chief homophobe” earlier this year introduced a “bathroom bill” that died in committee.

    What a fucking lie. Everyone knows people on the right thinks transgendered people are less than human. We have a right leaning poster here who calls them "it"

    It’s a big deal because the incumbent was a big time bigot. It was a rejection of that archaic nonsense

    Stop pretending you're a liberal all of a sudden because the tides are turning.

    No, that is a leftist lie liberals use to win elections.

    You all can't run on the issues.

    Appears its only a big deal to you liberals.

    I don't give a shit as long as my issues are addressed.

    See, you all mistake being against certain social or law issues as hating an entire group, that is where you make your mistake.

    You can be against gay marriage and not be against homosexuality.

    You can be against bathroom bills and not be against transgenders.

    But you guys with your limited intelligence can't fathom that.
    Thanks from Jeremy and John T Ford
