Skip to comments.San Francisco may cut funding to transgender job center (The Horror!)

Michelle WallowingBull was born a boy. But growing up on Wyoming's Wind River Indian Reservation, she knew from age 5 that she was a girl inside.
As a teen she bounced from the reservation to a South Dakota town to foster homes and back. In these remote communities, with a family steeped in addiction, she said, it was difficult to openly express the gender she deeply felt. Substance abuse and economic uncertainty followed travails all too common for transgender people.
But last week, WallowingBull worked the room at a job fair organized by San Francisco's Transgender Economic Empowerment Initiative, a pioneering program that has received an outpouring of public support in recent weeks as it faces possible elimination of city funding.
"I think I've hit everyone now," WallowingBull, 20, said of the more than two dozen employers at the job fair. Her most promising contacts: Macy's, Safeway and Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group.
The program the first of its kind in the country and a model for one run by the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center relies heavily on city money that has come under threat as the city tries to close an unprecedented budget hole of $483 million. About half of its roughly $450,000 budget comes from the city.(continued)

BTW, I don't think it's satire...
WallowingBull? I would have thought that was Nancy Pelosi’s Indian name.
I've found it's a bizarre group of mostly highly intelligent people who are completely out of their minds.
And it's amazing how many are really good musicians.
A transgender job center?....
How many ways can the Sacramento Asshats waste tax money?....
The real purpose of the "job fair".
What kind of jobs are listed at a Tranny job center?...Sounds like a great skit for Saturday Night Live...
“as the city tries to close an unprecedented budget hole”....
....And the jokes just write themselves....

I live close by to the freak center in Hollywood. Judging by the cars alone all of them are rich, white Prius-driving liberals who can definitely afford to keep it private, instead of milking the taxpayers for a degenerate lifestyle.
Perhaps “her” name used to be WallowingCow, but is prepping for “her” new identity.
Nan won’t mind sharing, I’m sure.
Isn’t her Indian name Tight As A Drum? Or Talk Peace Pipe, Sell War Hatchets?
More like WallowingInBull$#!+.
Taxpayers definitely shouldn’t be involved in it but the financial cross-section of that group pretty much matches the public at large.
I know this is the kind of crap I want MY taxes going for.
The confusion is understandable. Nanny Policy's tribal name is actually "WallowingInBull."
As long as they don’t shit down the UFO repair job center I don’t care.
Well, you know they have to smog test those UFOs to make sure they don’t release too much CO2.
And set new speed limits on them.
