Posted on 09/28/2012 6:20:41 PM PDT by chessplayer
MSNBC doesn't just oppose voter-ID reforms on behalf of blacks. In an interview with the DC gay newspaper The Washington Blade, weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry insisted "voter suppression efforts continue to impact transgender Americans." It came with a lot of leftist lingo.
They dont look like what their photo IDs are, she said. So if they are self-presenting in front of an election official and they have an ID that says male or female and theyre sort of gender self-presenting in a non-conforming way, of course you end up with the possibility of shame or embarrassment or not being believed to be who you are. They also dont have birth certificates with names and gender markers that are not informative of what their current life is. Biological truth is an ideological lie:
All of those things impact the ability of people to have the kind of state-issued ID that is allowable in a lot of these states around voting, she said. And so the idea that a person would be a perfectly eligible American citizen who has an opinion about voting and is kept out of it because of those sorts of issues it goes to the heart of helping us understand that these efforts are really voter suppression efforts, not efforts to keep the election process above board.
Wouldn't it be easier for election monitors if the "trans voter" presented themselves at the polls in a way that resembled their photo ID? Common sense never gets in the way of the libertine Left.
Harris-Perry complained that some minority actvists are very cool in advocating for "trans people" on this issue. She said she has a better understanding of the issue because she said her gender non-conforming niece frequently confronts questions when she presents herself as male, but her student ID lists her gender as female.
Oh geeez. The whole world has gone Fluken nuts! If a guy wants to wear his “cute” and “fabulous” sun dress to vote, let him! We don’t have any laws in America that says that freaks and fruitcakes can’t vote! If we did, they’d be 47% fewer voters out there. PMSNBC needs to lighten up.
“They dont look like what their photo IDs are, she said. So if they are self-presenting in front of an election official and they have an ID that says male or female and theyre sort of gender self-presenting in a non-conforming way, of course you end up with the possibility of shame or embarrassment or not being believed to be who you are. “
This is simply not how the transgender world works. Melissa is flat-out lying.
Gee, all 239 of them?
I mean really.
I believe it was Lincoln who asked “How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Answer, 4. Because calling a tail a leg does not make it one.”
“Self Present as a toaster. You are genetically what you are. No surgery can change it. No psycho-babble feelgood BS will change it. And it’s ‘anti-science- of them to claim otherwise.
The TEA Party better start “self presenting” candidates that make that into codified constitutional law.
Because the libs will just keep inventing excuses/reasons to twist reality in the meantime.
These people are pathetic.
The normal world should not have to bend over backwards for the abnormal. Time for this sh1t to end once and for all. If they want to play dress up they need to accept the consequences of playing dress up.
If you don’t look like your photo ID you’re not going to get very far doing anything, Ms Harris-Perry.
Seriously, Libs have insisted to me that if a person is a homosexual "God made them that way", they cannot possibly change, and why should they, when they are perfect, just as "God intended them to be". And yet, when some sad person with gender identification disorder wants to be made the OPPOSITE sex through surgery, often at the cost of public money, somehow THERE "God made a mistake" that has to be corrected?
No dobt the founding fathers never intended to give the vote to transgendered perverts.
Our country is going to hel!.
Yeah, if Republicans could suppress, say, 30% of that demographic, they might be able to flip a swing state like Massachusetts or California.
“of course you end up with the possibility of shame or embarrassment or not being believed to be who you are. “
My educated opinion estimates there might be 2 trans, total, who end up in this situation during the election.
They’re going to need to suck it up and get in the complaint line behind the thousands of Americans who are humiliated by the TSA on a daily basis.
As an American, I say if Melissa Harris-Perry wants to wear his sun dress to the polls, LET HIM!
When you typed "id" did you mean identification or the psychological term id for the darker side of humans?
Really the number of transgender people presenting selves to vote will have an amazing increase in numbers this election.
Count on it.
got that right, this is plain nuts, what is next muslim women wearing their headress hiding their faces?
Men are men and women are women, plain and frigging simple, these nut case perverts who have mental issues need tobe told they are in need of mental help and not be told all the time by these lefty kooks that it is normal.
Men acting and dressing as women, for crying out loud.
men saying they are women but like women thus they are a homosexuals woman.
Frigging sick perverted idiots
These ‘persons of transgender’ or whatever should get two votes: one for them and one for the body they’re trapped inside of.
Holy freeking crapnuggets...
I guess Transgender people are too damned stupid to go down to the DMV with some paperwork and get a brand spanking shiny new drivers license with an updated photograph on it.....
Just like all the other minority groups that apparently cannot make their way to the local DMV to get an updated drivers license....
And if they are in their “first stages” of what ever they do when they change, how hard would it be for them to wipe off the makeup and put away the wig for a few hours while they “sashey” down to the local voting place so they can vote for Obama which they very well will likely do?
All this voter suppression crap these days is nothing more than Liberals crying wolf again and again, pretty soon when REAL cases of voter suppression happens everyone will ignore it because these idiot libs will have cried voter suppression too damn much.
Forgot to add...
Shouldn’t the Transgender people be insulted that the Democraps think so little of them that they can get their ID “straightened” out so to speak... LOL
We dont have any laws in America that says that freaks and fruitcakes cant vote!
Obviously. Look at what they’ve given us. FDR, LBJ, Carter, Clinton, Obama.
They procreate. They outnumber the cognescenti. And, their vote counts as much as ours.
To paraphrase the immortal words of Tiny Tim, “God help us, every one....”
cross dressing perverts were born one way, men are men and women are women.
These sicko’s have some mental issues and they need ot be told of this instead of this crap of it’s OK to be different
I would think that if anyone self presented they would be arrested for indecent exposure.
These persons of transgender or whatever should get two votes: one for them and one for the body theyre trapped inside of.
Don’t give them any ideas. Since they claim to be two people in one body, they might actually win something like that (getting to vote twice) in a liberal court.
Whatever......like those 2,000 votes nationwide would make a difference.
It “transgender” a big enough constituency that anyone would bother to suppress their voting, what with all the blacks and such to suppress?
I don't call liberals "Pretzel People" for nothing! They not only bend over backwards but twist themselves into the unlikeliest of knots in order to justify their whacky positions.
‘”Shame or embarrassment”? I thought that this kind of nonsense was “perfectly natural” so why should they be ashamed?’
Better yet, a matter of “pride”.
Gosh, you think there’s that many? This is series.
We’re going out with nary a wimper, much less a bang.
This same Harris-Perry whatever seems to have had no problem when her friends in the Black Ku Klux Klan (New Black Panthers) were blocking whites from voting in PA in 2008. Never hear any complaints from Liberal Black Racists like this MH-P
