    "Vermont primary could pave way for first transgender governor in US"

    "If Christine Hallquist can win Tuesday’s Democratic primary, and go on
    to run for Vermont governor, it will be the first time in history that Americans
    will be able to vote for a transgender woman for such a senior political role.

    For Hallquist, it will cap a remarkable journey which has included decades of
    internal strife over how her family would accept her as Christine, the five-year
    transition process before she felt ready to present herself as a woman
    in her job as a high-powered CEO ..."

    "She said that from a young age she felt she was a girl trapped in a boy’s body. ..."
    "But though she hid her gender identification, Hallquist was an effeminate child,
    which didn’t go down well in the Catholic school where she was taught –
    and says she was regularly beaten – by nuns. Neither did the fact that
    she had been identified as “gifted” intellectually, Hallquist said, and prone
    to question certain aspects of the Catholic faith."

    "Unlike [Bernie] Sanders, she is unwilling to class herself as a democratic socialist,
    or even as a progressive, despite running on a left-leaning platform
    which includes a better living wage and Medicare for all."

    "With her family now fully supportive, Hallquist is eager for Tuesday’s vote,
    and has a sense that Vermont, with its democratic socialist senator and
    progressive history, is the place where a transgender candidate could become governor."

    Christine Hallquist was featured in the 2016 documentary 'Denial'.

    Do you believe that UFOs exist because of the insistence of UFO abductees?

    This just isn't even the beginnings of a good argument, lol.

    Dwelling on one's gender in the political world is much the same as dwelling on one's blue shirt as they struggle to unlock the intricacies of the Caro - Kann: Panov - Botvinnik Attack. I doubt one's gender has much to do with being able to govern effectively.

    Unless, of course, if you're crazy and have an insane concept of your gender identity.

    So, the thousands of baby's that are born every year with both male and female sex organs are crazy and insane? So, if they grow up with a gender identity problem this makes them crazy and insane? To somehow think that some people cannot have a sexual identity problem that is out of their control; is to me crazy, and denies reality and truth. To me, all trumptards are stupid, does this mean that they are all stupid? Yep, according to me they are. 🙄😴

    Everyone in her family has now accepted Christine Hallquist's gender identity.
    She (former CEO of Vermont Electrical Coop) was featured in the 2016 documentary 'Denial'.

    Has Philokalia watched it? Can he cite anything that he would claim makes her appear insane?

    "How a Group of Muslim Girls Inspired Christine Hallquist to Run for Governor"

    "I listened to these four young women, all high schools seniors, who call themselves Muslim Girls Making Change.
    They were doing slam poetry on what it was like to live as Muslim in Vermont, and I cried.
    It was that moment that I realized we are not safe in Vermont ...
    The fact that they were getting harassed for wearing their hijabs and just the attacks
    that are being directed at them on a daily basis at their high school from other students.
    And on the streets. It’s hard to imagine. Of course being somebody who had just transitioned
    a couple of years earlier, I can certainly relate to what feels like being marginalized."

    There’s no such thing as Mott writing anything half-way rational.

    you really should think about why you allow someone like me to .own, you the way it appears I do. You think it is incumbent on you to reply to me posts but you cant form an intelligent thought.
