On Tuesday the first transgender candidate in Virginia’s history won the Democrat primary in House District 13. Thirty-two year old Danica Roem easily won her race against three other candidates. There are only two transgender elected officials in statehouses across the country.
Ms. Roem will run against Delegate Bob Marshall, a 20-year incumbent. This will be quite a race, between a conservative Republican and a very liberal, transgender, Democrat.
More on this race here, here and here. The Washington Post already loves Roem and they are not fans of Delegate Marshall.
Caitlyn Jenner, conservative Republican.
And the walls come tumbling down. It’s all good as long as she has an R after her name. #amirite
I would gladly vote for her if she was going to cut taxes and adhere to the Constitution, I don’t care what her gender or political party is, she could dress as a clown and walk backwards around Richmond for all I care. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that voting for tax cuts and adhering to the Constitution isn’t what she’s promoting in her stump speeches, and probably not what she’ll try to do once in office.
Marshall, on the other hand, cares deeply for the Constitution, voted against Virginia HR 2313, and has a history of championing smaller government. Stick with what you know, support Marshall in the next election.
From her website …
Traffic: Let’s finally fix Route 28 and find a cost-effective way to extend VRE to Innovation Technology Park.
Jobs: Incentivize localities to eliminate their BPOL taxes through state economic development grants and finally fill the office vacancies in Manassas Park along Manassas Drive.
Schools: Raise teacher salaries in Manassas Park and Prince William County so they are no longer the lowest in Northern Virginia while also providing more money for capital improvement projects that reduce class sizes.
Equality: Improving our quality of life starts with equality. I support the DREAM Act, civil rights, voting rights, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, raising the minimum wage and making health insurance more accessible and affordable for everyone.
I like the words “cost effective” and “eliminate their BPOL taxes”, but in context it’s still someone calling for more spending, and she doesn’t even mention the Constitution or watching out for regular working people. Teachers, check. LGBTQ, check. Immigratns, check. Women, check. Working stiffs who get up and go to work everyday … umm, nope, not even an honorable mention. And what about men and their rights ?
Teachers, LGBTQ folks, immigrants, and women are also “working stiffs who get up and go to work everyday.”
Astounding logic, Rick, simply astounding.
You should teach philosophy with logic like that.
A set can’t have issues if the issues of a few subsets of that set have their issues addressed.
Let’s call that, what “Rick’s law” ?
Bringing Virginia law into the families of gay and lesbian people IS NOT ‘smaller government’. THAT IS TYRANNICAL government.
Well, as whacked out as this is, I imagine the Bull Elephant will be at least fair to Bob?
Its very familiar to see conservatives being dismissive of federally protected classes of people, it has not worked out so well in the past.
Gender challenged people are not a protected class of people by federal or Virginia statute, if I missed it please cite.
Various federal agencies have determined, in policy, that is applied across the country, that gender identity and expression may be considered in the same light as sex in matters of employment discrimination, workplace sexual harassment, etc. Federal and state agencies would, no doubt, consider school bullying because of gender identity to be actionable under federal, state, and local anti-bullying statutes and policies. Etc.
Exactly. Elected representatives of the people did NOT make that determination, which is required by law, in order to become enforced as law.
“She walked up to me and she asked me to dance.
I asked her name and in a dark brown voice she said, ‘Lola’
L-O-L-A Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola…” from the campaign theme song.
At least in BE, people always know where to find my thoughts. At the bottom, ha, ha, ha
The people who let this kind of s–t out of the closet by writing about it, and thus giving not only these freeks, but those who write about these freeks the attention platform that they so desperately desire, are equally guilty of be in possession of a corrupted mind.
AKA an ugly guy in a dress.
This just goes to show what a freak show the Democratic Party has now become. Anyway, this is good news for Bob Marshall.
President Trump said;
“gays , lesbians and transgender will have a voice in a Trump Administration ”
Is Trump now a Democrat?
He is NOT TOUGH on illegal immigration.
What about Kamatzu?
What about Carl Icon?
What about “they are all going home” comment?
What about a NH Primary stop questions” will make sure they ate using the HB Program”.
Let’s talk Transgender now.
R. John Kitchen from LU (J.Jr endorsed Trump) is running for Campbell County School Board on the bathroom issue.
Oh no there could be in the future a Trans in your school , what to do?
Well how much does Campbell County spend on Owen , the building trades teacher ( previously by trade a building contractor).
No Trans here , but we did have
Victor Rodas ( DACA) , see murder of Raymond Wood.
So Campbell County Republicans expense money to hire a trades teacher teach children a trade then not enforce the Contractor and Employment laws that PROTECT the Taxpayer investment and our educated citizen dreamers.
Allow Santurary , illegal employment, illegal commerce and fraud and we are expected to fall in line and follow this kind of leadership?
Don’t stand still waiting for my support to long because as say on the job;
if you stand still long enough the ants will crawl up your legs, all the way to your candy a$$.
Why do you call him her??
The God of Creation created the first human to be ‘transgender’. Evidently, from the Genesis account, ‘Adam’, the first human or our humanity (as distinguished from possible non-terrestrial ‘humanities’, if you are from this planet) was formed from with undifferentiated gender/non-gender. ‘Adam’ comes from the word for ‘earth’ or ‘dirt’. Dirt is not differentiated by gender. Further in the creation account ‘Eve’ is differentiated genetically from the genetic material of ‘Adam’. The transition to a different sexual anatomy further articulates a ‘transgender’ humanity and foreshadows gender transition surgery that we are currently capable of in medical science. Apostle Paul clearly announces in the letter to ‘Galatians’ that the God of Creation – who made a ‘new creation’ – Jesus Christ, the Risen from the Dead and Eternally living Word of God, and believers in Jesus Christ who are the very ‘Body of Christ’ – regards that gender – ‘neither male nor female’ – are any longer in the new creation. Of course you don’t have to read, understand, or believe the Bible. Go right ahead.
Humanist spin. That is a perverted spin to the Truth.
Nope. I have relied on the text per se. I do not read ‘Hebrew’ which we assume to be the original language of the written text. But, of course, we do not know the original language of Adam, or Adam’s offspring, or generations following until they spoke Hebrew. Recognizing the bias of language and culture is essential to humility before God’s Word since we must trust in what the Holy Spirit gives us in prayerful, and rational discussion, of the texts delivered to us. As you should know the HUMANIST founders of Protestantism – Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Tyndale, etc WERE RENAISSANCE HUMANISTS not 20th century FUNDAMENTALISTS or 21st century IDEOLOGUES. Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Tyndale …. excellent HUMANIST company to keep!
Oh, this candidate it a man pretending to be a woman. Got it.
A little humor here.
Shape Shifter ?
I do not think that you have a clue what you are talking about. Genesis 1:27.
This is where these freeks came from. (My opinion) Genesis 6:4.
Possibly supported by the Book of Enoch.
Who knows what to call such mentally confused people. They, it is probably zhey, call themselves somewith with a z in front of it. I think they should dispense with the alphabet and go Tibetan.
More like he-she-it
Mental problems run deep in the Democrat Party.
Indeed. Republican Party is FULL of substance addicts and abusers, pornography abusers, masturbation addicts and abusers, serial liars, and the like. Can you imagine the really nasty and stinky sexual fetishes that abound in Republican swinger parties and orgies?
You make my post about the mental problems of democrats all the more obvious. Thanks.
Actually, i’ve heard closeted perverted Republicans boast about what they do at orgies.
Please kindly let me know who these people are and I will make certain that they are no longer Republicans. Thanks. Meanwhile, what I have heard about Democrats leaves Republicans in the dust.
No, you haven’t. Stop making up these absurd lies.
YOUR nominee for President, whom you elected, delighted in boasting about grabbing – in an act of sexual assault or rape, depending on the state law in which the grabbing occurred – pussy. Married women’s pussy. Mothers. Daughters, Sisters, Religious women. Republican women. Democratic women. etc. … and you cannot DENY that unless YOU are a LIAR.
I am a sinner. You are a sinner. We are all sinners. The difference is I know, as many other Christians do, we are sinners. A Christian is always trying to work towards Jesus Christ. Most will fall short. It is sad that someone would adverise there sin as righteous. Satan has a stronger hold on people who advertise perversion as a good way of life. A toboggan slide to Hell is what I pray they hop off.
Thank you. There are many Biblical texts that present the ‘kerygma’ the ‘message of salvation’ in a kernel. Here is one from Titus 2:
11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all 12 training us to renounce impiety and worldly passions, and in the present age to live lives that are self-controlled, upright, and godly, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope and the manifestation of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. 14 He it is who gave himself for us that he might redeem us from all iniquity and purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds.
There is nothing in this kernel that singles out transgender persons, or indeed, any persons, as sinful. The Titus text, by not specifying demographic groups, or cultural groups, or physical descriptions of persons, to be ungodly leaves open that all varieties of human persons – of all different demographics, of all different cultures, or all different varieties (including with out without limbs or senses, with or without high IQ, with or without tattoos, with or without large breasts, with or without blue eyes, etc) – can be ‘zealous for good deeds’. Why then, cannot transgender persons – in many varieties – be ‘waiting for the blessed hope and the manifestation of the glory of God’ and be ‘zealous for good deeds’?
In fact, we know many transgender persons who are devoted in their walk of faith, service in their congregations, observant of religious duties (attending Mass, etc.). In fact perhaps there are transgender persons who pray more fervently for God’s glory to shine into the world than you, or I, or many?
And, also, all – including transgender persons – can apprehend the salvation ‘kergyma’
This isn’t about “sin.”. It’s about enabling and promoting mental illness.
Oh, you mean like Republican groups having alcohol at fundraisers? or having meetings at ‘all you can eat’ buffets? or taking tons of lobbyist money from ‘Big Pharma’ peddling pills to everyone (have you WATCHED any TV or picket up a magazine lately?). …..
Edward N Virginia, maybe what Warmac9999 was referring to was the fact that 41% of transgendered people attempt suicide at some point in their lives (Source: National Transgender Discrimination Survey (NTDS), conducted by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and National Center for Transgender Equality).
If it was your kid and you knew that whatever was going on with them was 18 times more likely to cause them to attempt suicide, what would you do ?
Transgender people face mortality rates higher than soldiers in active war zones.
It is good to hear that you are concerned about the health and well being of all Americans. Candidate/President Trump SAID/PROMISED that Trumpcare would ‘be GREAT. Everyone is covered! No restrictions because of existing diagnoses. YOU’LL LOVE IT’ . …. You mean THAT health care? WHERE IS IT?
