FULL TITLE: Former sniper, 40, quits U.S. Army and moves to Britain to become a woman after falling in love with lesbian student, 29

A former military sniper has quit the U.S. army and moved to Britain where she lives as a woman with her lesbian lover.

Former-squaddie Charles Pontiero, 40, is saving up for sex-change surgery after settling down in Coventry, West Midlands, with girlfriend Maria.

After meeting student Maria, 29, online, Charles changed her name by deed poll to Alessia - and swapped a life in the army for a job as an actress.

The blonde claims that she's finally decided to make the change and live openly as a woman in the UK because it's easier to change sex in Britain than the U.S.

Alessia, who has married three times and has two teenage children, said: 'I always felt more like a girl than a boy, but I felt like I had to hide my female side when I was in the army.

Does anyone have a flow chart for this nonsense? If you're a guy who meets a lesbian, falls in love with her and becomes a transvestite to be with her, aren't you still just a guy using trickery to get laid? It's all so confusing.......

Getting your Johnson turned inside out does not make you a woman. Only a damned fool.

In our era, everything goes, nothing is bizarre, everything is acceptable and nothing no longer surprises us. We have become immune to the most ridiculous events and news stories as it relates to human behavior. Nothing is sacred, nothing holy, nothing taboo, the opposite is true. The more bizarre, the more newsworthy. The world turned upside down.

“quits U.S. Army and moves to Britain to become a woman..”

There’s a lot of symbolism there.

Correction: former sniper quits US Army and moves to Britain to live his life pretending he is something he is not, and never will be.

Even if he has the mutilation surgery and suppresses his bodies natural hormone balance with estrogen pills and so forth, he is still a man. Furthermore, he absolutely cannot experience life as a woman. From what I’ve read of the mutilation surgery, whatever the body feels like afterwards does not even remotely resemble what a woman experiences being a woman.

People like this need therapy, not medical mutilation; whoever came up with the idea that it’s good to feed their delusions by calling them by the opposite sex pronouns... well, that person should be shot.

Why do they keep calling him a her?

Do they think they can change genetics just by referring to a man as a woman?

Do they not see the idiocy of this?

Liberalism truly is a mental disease

(Amazingly they never showed the pictures of the 29 year old “lesbian” that he fell in love with. She must have been pretty hot if he’s having his tallywhacker whacked off to be with her)

Yeah, I know.

Since those in our media are freak show addicts, there is not much that can be done to keep them from exploiting the mentally ill like this sniper, except to stop giving the media our patronage. Doing that is definitely harder than it sounds.

It’s a bit mystifying.

Warren Beatty’s daughter is the opposite of this guy, she wants to be an effeminate gay man.

Let me get this straight This “guy” falls in love with a lesbian who presumably has fallen for him too (I hate to tell u guys but this means you are straight). Anyway “she” is a les and being a good liberal she couldn’t go back on her “choice” so he decides to become a woman so he too can be a lesbian so as not to foist his patriarchal belief system on her and be labeled a misogynist.

My goodness gracious - Lord these people are desperately in need of your help!

The good news is that he paid for it with his/her own money. Let’s not forget he served his country doing a job that I’m sure was ‘effective.’ At 40 years of age he probably did his 20 and got out. No boat rockin’ or trouble making along the way.

Everything is wide open now.

That is what the Psychologists and Sociologists wanted us to do - expel everything intimate out onto each other and into the public forum - this is part of not being a “repressive” society and is considered to be healthy as long as it is proportionate and proper but we left those guidelines behind us years ago.

If you express reservations about mores and attitudes, the common belief now is that YOU are not dealing with YOUR feelings, YOU need to see a “professional” for therapy, YOU are abnormal for not accepting a military spy or former sniper who says they're really women trapped in a male body.

If you object to Homosexual practice, (now conveniently called “Gay”) then YOU have THE problem, you are a...wait for it, Homophobe!!! Ahhhhhhhh!
That means I am afraid of Humans?

The bottom line is that all of these PC platitudes quash any discussion about the deviant behavior - end of discussion, YOU NEED HELP.

This is indeed an inverted world...

You can't even be a guest on any talk show UNLESS you are a Trans-gender cross-dresser, raped by your parents with 36 pierced earrings in your eyelids and 45 enormous tattoos on your body, single parent to a child born with AIDS and addicted to Methadone. The more combinations of bizarre behavior, the better your chances of getting on Oprah and spilling your guts before a taped audience...sick.
