    You know what Harry? This gave me the "what in the world is going on here" reaction you're always expressing.

    You know why? We're prejudiced by our environments.

    You have here a human being. That human being may in fact be the best for the job.

    For someone of your generation, you may have this same reaction for women in charge or African Americans in charge, or Hispanics in charge. For people of my generation, AT THE GUT LEVEL, there's more acceptance for ethnic or gender equality. For people younger than men, there's more acceptance for sexual orientation or choosing one's own gender.

    If your mind remains pliable, you recognize that all that matters is whether this is a qualified human being for the job.

    Generally speaking, we all talk the talk on that point. Then on the right, people attempt to attack any such person being in charge, on the basis that he or she must not be qualified, but they disproportionately target minority appointees (whether the minority status is ethnic, gender/orientation, or representation by gender in politics.) On the left, generally speaking, such appointees are thought to represent progress, not as a novelty or as a token, but as a "downpayment" on the notion that one day the minority status just won't matter.

    You're getting older, I'm getting older. Every generation we move toward the day when we indeed judge one another not by the color of our skin (or our sexual orientation or gender identity,) but by the content of our character.

    Why do they have to tell us about this, why don't they just hire the guy/girl and get on with life, WHO GIVES A SH!T, why do they keep throwing this kind of crap out there by advertising a persons sex life they seem to be looking for a reaction.....:confused:

    Does her appointment has nothing to do with her qualifications, or her sexuality...:confused::confused:

    Rachel Maddow's two cents' worth:

    YouTube - Rachel Maddow discusses Amanda Simpson

    She does a quick run-down of Simpson's 30 years of experience and her 3 degrees (physics, economics, business, I believe,) and makes a pretty strong case that Simpson's abundantly qualified for the position.

    It's also interesting that the administration named her without fanfare and without pointing out her transgender status, but Focus on the Family decided it was important to make the appointment about her sex-change.

    Interesting to consider what should happen... her career should just stop because she had a sex-change?

    In this particular case the administration didn't notice -- i.e., didn't say anything about the transgender nominee. It was Focus on the Family that made a big news item out of it, blowing up a story reported by a newsletter for TG people.

    That's why I think "Focus on your Own Darn Family" was a pretty funny new name for that group.

    Blech.

    I've gotten used to "sexual preference" issues. It's taken me a long time, but I realized we're all still the same.

    But Dear God, please don't let me ever see that men can now give birth and breast feed in my lifetime. That just wouldn't be acceptable!
