Skip to comments.First transgender officer on KCís police force looks to the future
Posted on 05/31/2007 11:17:51 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Jessica, a Kansas City police officer, is 6 feet tall with a chin dimple, pink manicured fingernails and a birth certificate that says male.
But in her mind, Jessica believes she has always been a female.
She legally changed her name from David to Jessica last year. And in January, she gained the right to dress as a woman at work.
She asked co-workers to refer to her in female pronouns, like she and her. She started hormone therapy and removed most of her body hair with laser surgery, but she hasnt had a sex-change operation, known as gender reassignment surgery. She needs to raise $17,500 first.

So do the taxpayers of KC have to pony up for a third restroom?
Et tu, Kansas?
How many sane places are left in the US?
Stan: I want to be one.
Stan: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me Loretta.
Loretta: It's my right as a man.
Judith: Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?
Loretta: I want to have babies.
Reg: You want to have babies?!
Loretta: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.
Reg: But...you can't have babies!
Loretta: Don't you opress me!
Reg: I'm not opressing you, Stan. You haven't got a womb. Where is the foetus going to gestate? You're going to keep it in a box?
Judith: Here, I've got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody's fault, not even the Romans', but that he can have the right to have babies.
Rogers: Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister! Sorry.
Reg: What's the point?
Reg: What's the point of fighting for his right to have babies, when he can't have babies?
Rogers: It is symbolic of our struggle against opression.
Reg: Symbolic of his struggle against reality.
Well maybe just maybe the rest of the country is ready for Rudy. (a little bit of sarcasm)
Obviously the KSC has decided to obligate HIM. My reply, if asked, would be "wish in one hand, sh*t in the other, and see which one fills up first."
Why not "it"?
Depends on which stroll.
Kansas City is in Missouri.
Yes, there's one in Kansas, too, but Missouri's is the city and KCK the suburb.
What a bunch of freaks. How is this a natural tendency to mutilate oneself with modern surgery?
Huggy Bear don’t play dat.
Looks like a dude to me.
She legally changed her name from David to Jessica last year.
Put me on oath as unconvinced.
Well, maybe a 'dudette'?
I have a feeling, either way, he/she does not get too much action.
I’ve always wanted to be a rabbit.
Why is the police department enabling a mental illness, and foisting it upon the unsuspecting public? In a sane world, this person’s choice of embracing an imaginary reality would render him unfit for any position of authority. If the dude thinks he’s a woman was other misconceptions does he have about the world around him? There are enough loser/power-tripping/corrupt cops as it is, now people have to worry about ones who don’t even have a grasp on reality. Ugh.
...police department enabling a mental illness
Get thee to the Sensitivity\Diversity Awareness camp forthwith.
I’ll meet you there...
“Well, maybe a ‘dudette’?”
Nah. I use “dudette” as a legit word ascribed to a cute youngster of the feminine gender and I’ve heard others use it that way, too.
“I have a feeling, either way, he/she does not get too much action.”
Where in the Hell are those vomiting emoticons when you need ‘um??
Are you kidding? Who's gonna sexually harass a six-foot manchick?
Why do I not feel safer?
Believe it or not, KCK was incorporated in 1850 - years before sprawl joined the two together. KCK has always been its own city - it's not a burb - just a town with a name that reflects its geographic location.
I never even knew that flags had gender.
This is the liberal suicide agenda in action. What kind of lawsuits need to be presented to the city council to stop such folly?
“IT” seems appropriate to me. The twisted folks who write these stories think they will make folks feel all warm and fuzzy. But I think most (I hope) who see such garbage just want to puke.
Pity the next person that this officer does a Terry frisk on....
No one. But the selection of the fall-person to be accused, in pursuit of a phat settlement to retire early on, just got even bigger.
It seems to be the preferred way to cash out...better and safer than faking injury.
I didn’t mean to demean KCK by calling it a suburb. It’s an economic designation — I’d bet a lot more people commute from KCK to KCM than vise versa.
I’m sitting here writing this in Decatur, Georgia, which is a suburb, functionally speaking, of Atlanta. Decatur existed decades before Atlanta, and according to local lore — the historical accuracy of which is doubtful — Decatur was offered the railroad hub that would ultimately grow into Atlanta, but turned it down, because the residents didn’t want the noise and smoke. So the surveyors moved a few miles west.
In my mind, I'm George Bush. So I'm asking co-FReepers to please refer to me as "Mr. President".
So it took him 40 years to figure this out, and pink fingernails and earrings are as far as he got?
Uh-uh. Nope. Do the surgery and then we'll see. Until then, you're just a cross-dresser.
1. They forgot the horse and dog *bleep*ers. Can’t be judgemental, you know.
2. Including Intersexs (i.e., people with a genuine problem) with these self-obsessed loony toons is beyond vile.
You're right. Is it air-conditioned where UR? My brain is fried!
My brain is sauteed, with onions and garlic.
David: I want to be a policewoman.
Mom: Don't you mean policeman?
David: No. I mean policewoman. I mean, haven't you seen those absolutely fabulous skirts they get to wear?
Mom: We'll discuss this with your father when he gets home. Meanwhile, why don't you go out back and play football or some other rough all-male type sports. Alternative reply by Mom, assuming she and father (if he was around during David's childhood) Mom: Oh, that's just wonderful that you want to express your true self David. You're father will be so proud when he gets home from today's protest against capitalism, racism, sexism, republicans, nukes, guns and the war in vietnam. Meanwhile, why don't you finish that macrame project, you know, the one where you're making your own clothes for non-gender specific Barbie.
Alternative reply by Mom, assuming she and father (if he was around during David's childhood) are 60's liberals (pretty safe assumption, no?): Mom: Oh, that's just wonderful that you want to express your true self David. You're father will be so proud when he gets home from today's protest against capitalism, racism, sexism, republicans, nukes, guns and the war in vietnam. Meanwhile, why don't you finish that macrame project, you know, the one where you're making your own clothes for non-gender specific Barbie.
Now there is a policewoman who could have handled brian nichols!!!!!!He’s the guy who overpowered a 5”2 policewoman and killed 4 people....
Y'know, I don't have a problem with homosexuals. I'm atheist, and just don't have some ancient book telling me what to think.
I don't even have a problem with cross-dressers. I don't even hold Rudy in contempt for that, any more than I hold Milton Berle, Flip Wilson, or Jamie Farr in any disrespect for trying to entertain people in a funny way. Heck, I even find women dressing as men to be somewhat practical. We have pants with pockets, and we can almost always find two things in the closet that match up reasonably. If a man wants to wear a skirt, that's no different to me than wearing a kilt, fundamentally.
But I really do have a problem wrapping my brain around the "I was born in the wrong gender body, and need to change it," mentality. Acceptance of ourself the way we are is a sign of mental health, and if that includes an attraction to the same sex, rather than the opposite one, I say, fine, so be it. But the need to change gender strikes me as mentally disturbed as people who feel they need plastic surgery, when they already look good enough.
Maybe someone will explain it all to me in a way that I can understand, but right now, that looks damn tough. MSNBC.com had a series of "Pictures of Transgendered Americans" on their website about a week or two ago, and they ranged from merely pathetic-looking, to downright butt-ugly.
Yep, that’s my brain (slightly overcooked).
You think that’s bad? En route back, the bus started overheating and smoking on the interstate in 100* heat.
Someone should have told it not to smoke in school.
