Mel Wymore is a typical city council candidate in many ways, campaigning as a community board appointee, ex-PTA chair and founder of a roster of local organizations. But Wymore’s community-leader resume has an unusual feature: He built much of it while he was a woman.

If he wins, Wymore would be the first openly transgender officeholder in the nation’s biggest city and one of only a handful ever in the U.S., though his campaign isn’t emphasizing his personal story—or sidestepping it. …

Wymore, a Democrat, faces several opponents who also have long records of community involvement on Manhattan’s upscale, liberal Upper West Side.

Nationwide, at least five transgender people have won city, school board and judicial elections, including current Mayor Stu Rasmussen of Silverton, Ore. Perhaps dozens of others have run across the country; it’s unclear whether any such candidate has run in New York City. …

Every day, I see another example of our country becoming a freak show. Malignant narcissism indeed. Does anyone want someone who doesn't even know his gender as a political representative with power over them?

All of the city council candidates on the UWS attempt to “out-progressive” one another. I’d like to vote for the older gentleman who stands with an American flag and an “Illegals Are Not Legal” sign in front of my subway stop.

A mental defective mutilated woman.

These stories insist on calling someone who mutilates themselves whatever sex they choose to be instead of what sex they actually are.

I can cut the penis off a goat it doesn’t make Billy a Nanny.

I thought it was bad in 2002 when 6 of the 7 candidates for assembly were gay. This isn’t even a gay neighborhood. They are just ACTIVE. They are ORGANIZED. Swarms of them creeping through the big buildings with questionnaires for Quinn’s GOTV. Then they go to Starbux and take up the big table and don’t buy anything. Almost makes you feel sorry for the old-fashioned Democrats out there on the sidewalks collecting signatures for de Blasio.
