Talk radio host Michael Savage doesn’t mince words.  He often says that “liberalism is a mental disorder.”  He’s right.  Liberal ideology and political correctness, infused with public policy, begets social insanity. 

Case in point: A recent report on a popular homosexual “news” site declares, “A transgendered student says he is the victim of discrimination at a small Massachusetts community college because he is biologically female.” 

Say what?  “He” is “female”?  Welcome to PC-ville.  Come for the oxymoron, stay for the cognitive dissonance. 

In other news, “French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte says he is the victim of discrimination because he is biologically Bob from Detroit.”      

Apparently, this clearly confused 20-year-old woman who “presents as a male and wears male clothing” is upset that Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill, Massachusetts, will not allow her to undress, shower or otherwise cavort with the fellows in the men’s locker room.  She’s reportedly filed an “affirmative action complaint” against the school.            

Even Haverhill’s local newspaper, the Eagle-Tribune, plays along, saying that she was “denied the use of the men’s locker room … because of his female anatomy.” 

His female anatomy”!?      

Okay, wait a minute. …  Is this one of those, “it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘his’ is” moments?         

But it gets worse.  The paper goes on to explain that this young woman — er, man … whatever — actually identifies as a “gay male.”  It explains that her “public unveiling as a transgender gay male happened as an adult two years ago.  His designation means he has a female body, but identifies as a male and is sexually attracted to men.” 

Geeze-oh-Pete!  My head hurts.  Can this be for real?  How can any newspaper that wants to be taken seriously report this with a straight face?  A “gay” man trapped in a woman’s body?  And all this time I thought they were just straight gals in Dockers and flannel.  When I was a kid we called them “tomboys.”  They were great fun to play softball with, but they still had to shower with the rest of the girls.  What unenlightened bigots we were back then.
