Virginia's most homophobic member of the House of Delegates, Bob Marshall, was defeated after 26 years in the House by a transgender woman. Even Republicans are laughing about it.

What surprised me was the margin of the loss...lots of folks made an effort to finally get rid of the guy.

I'm going to see our delegate, a lady, tonight. I'm going to ask her which rest room they'll have the new delegate using.

So is a transgender woman one that is a man and WANTS to a woman, or a woman that WANTS to be a man or a man that's changed hardware to become a woman or a woman that's changed hardware to be a man or man that identifies as a woman or a woman that identifies as a man or?????????

I really don't know.

The hardware changing often takes place but switching "gender identity" doesn't require it, I don't think. Our new delegate was a male who now presents as a female. No idea about the hardware.
Somehow these folks remind me of the limerick:

There was a young Gay in Khartoum,
Who took a lesbian up to his room.
They argued all night
About who had the right,
To do what and with which and to whom.

Colston,

I would love to hear how she responded to that, especially if it was asked in a group of people.

As to Mr. Marshall, what's your definition of "homophobic?" While I suppose there are people who fear gays (and certainly those who hate them), I find it to fall in that category of left-wing politically correct terms that the mainstream has just rolled over and accepter.

What does it mean to be homophobic and, if it's a real concept, who really is homophobic?

Haha - that's horrible!!

I understand the gay and lesbian thing. Hell, I'm a 24 year old lesbian in an old man's body ;-)

I just don't get all this other crap.

We had a high ranking jailer here who went through the whole operation to become a woman. But once this was done he, or she, was big in fighting for the rights of women to marry each other.

So he was man living with a woman, but turned into a woman and is now fighting for lesbian rights to marry a woman. That one never made sense to me.

Dr. TB: Marshall called himself a homophobe. Beyond that, I suspect the definition varies depending on who's using the term.

Talked to our delegate earlier today. She laughed about what rest room the transgender delegate will use and hopes that isn't an issue when they get to Richmond.

Marshall doesn't sound very bright.
