Another Reason I'm Glad I'm A Trans Woman


"Anyone can go to Baghdad. Real men go to Tehran." Senior Bush Official, May 2003

Yes Ten years ago having screwed up Iraq and killed thousands of Iraqis the Bush administration was already thinking of plunge yet another country into chaos and misery. But of course they were "Real Men" not a gender queer trans woman like me. I am not a "Real Man" at all and thought invading Iraq was a very bad idea and that invading Iran was a even worse idea. Interestingly even Bush II thought invading Iran was a bad idea and refused to authorize it. Meanwhile the "Real Men" are still advocating bombing the hell out of Iran at a minimum. Isn't about time we kicked the "Real Men" out of office and gave we queers a chance? It would be damn hard for us to do worse.
