Transgender man linked to Pitt bomb-threat investigation claims discrimination
post-gazette.com ^ | 04/18/2012 | Michael A. Fuoco and Bill Schackner

A transgender man expelled in January from the University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown for defying the school's edict not to use the men's locker room filed a complaint today with the Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations, charging the school and its top officials with discriminating against him.

The complaint is the latest volley in Seamus Johnston's ongoing battle with Pitt over its transgender policy, one that has drawn the attention of FBI agents investigating bomb threats that have crippled daily life at the Oakland campus. Mr. Johnston's complaint was filed with the city commission because Pitt's main campus and top administrators are in Pittsburgh.

Mr. Johnston, 22, and his partner, Katherine Anne McCloskey, 56, a transgender woman, were interviewed by agents Wednesday at their apartment in Jackson Township, Cambria County. The next day, they were subpoenaed to appear Tuesday before a federal grand jury.

Mr. Johnston said agents told him he was being investigated in the bomb threats because of his explusion from the university in January after repeatedly using men's locker room facilities on the Johnstown campus despite being told not to do so. Mr. Johnston also is awaiting trial on three misdemeanors filed in the campus incident. Ms. McCloskey said agents indicated to her that the couple were persons of interest in the probe.

I have seen some fugly couples in my day, but partner, these two just about take the prize.

How can anyone take these two seriously? They are a couple of sick puppies. 75 years ago they would have been put away for their own good before they mutilated themselves, and became ugly versions of what they insanely wanted to be.

I have to ask.... the one that “appears” to be a “guy”, is really a 22 year old girl... and the other thing with long hair, is really a 56 year old guy? Transgendered doesn’t mean they’ve had the sex change, just the hormone treatment?

I believe "Katherine's" birth name is Larry Fine.

Seamus Johnson had been the Romney dog before species reassignment surgery and partnering with the former Larry Fine.

This whole thing is like some sick, twisted version of an SCTV parody on the subject.

Some of the comments I’ve read so far are knuckle-dragging, grammar school bully insults which avoid what the true issue is: This retrobate may have called in several bomb treats, did cause legal problems with the university, and is just a run-of-the-mill .hit disturber like Fluke, and the students are pissed, her side-kick is also a person of interest. Those worthless turdballs and all the like, need to crawl back under their rocks and stay their idefinely. Their reality is un-reality, and have no place in a sane society. And so I hope those who throw useless mud at useless people know how useless it is next time they comment-—their looks are of their own making though.

That ain’t no man and that ain’t no woman.

The journalists want to lie to us in their articles and the left wants to defy the laws of nature and science.

They are anti-science.

There is no such thing as either a “transgendered” man or a “transgendered” woman.

There ARE sick freaks, though.

Mutilating a healthy body part does not cure mental illness.
