We Don't Want Ann Coulter, Either
I've been amused over the last four years about the 'Mann Coulter' epithet directed at the Queen of Conservamean in addition to the comments, jokes and rumors circulating that she's transgendered.
If she is, I'd like to state for the record that y'all can have her.
While there are many women that we in the transgender community would be estatic to find out are actually one of our sisters and we would welcome them with open arms, please let Ann Coulter NOT be one of them.
Frankly, it's an insult to the transgender community for y'all to call her one. I have T-girlfriends that are much better looking and have far more elegance and class in their pinky fingers than Ann Coulter does in her entire body.
While I'm on this tip, what's up with this trend in the blogosphere and elsewhere to label women you don't like as transsexuals? Paris Hilton has had that comment thrown at her repeatedly along with her sister Nicky by Perez Hilton and others. Even Tina Fey took a recent swipe at Paris using the same attack line. I'm not a big fan of Paris Hilton, but enough is enough. If you wish to insult her, find another way to do it without calling her a transsexual. It really annoys those of us who are transwomen and who are proud of it.
But back to Ann. Every time Coulter opens her mouth something hateful and asinine comes out of it. Oh, her conservative friends were loving it when it was anti-liberal bile spewing from her lips or quotes such as, "My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."
When she attacked 9-11 widows Kristen Breitweiser, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg and Patty Casazza last year by calling them the 'Witches of East Brunswick' among other comments, she found herself being called out by many peeps in her own party.
She put her pumps in her mouth again during the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. last week when she called 2008 Denmocratic presidential candidate John Edwatds a 'faggot'.
It's not the first time that she's used anti-gay rhetoric to smear Democrats either and they egged her on. Now were entering the 2008 presidential election cycle and the GOP and the rest of the conservative movement is in extreme makeover mode. They're trying to look look less hateful and bigoted than they really are and now they want to disown her.
Too late now. Y'all were the ones enabling her behavior in the first place. Buying those wastes of trees she called books, paying her speaking fees and laughing the loudest at her remarks. Now the chickens have come home to roost.
I don't care if home girl is six feet tall, does have a huge Adam's Apple, a double-digit shoe size and a rather murky background, that does not make Ann Coulter a transsexual unless she makes that declaration. There's a better chance of the Cubs winning the World Series than Ann having a press conference at the Washington Press Club and uttering those four words.
For the record, that's one press conference I hope I'll never see.
