Today”€”Monday, March 31″€”is International Transgender Day of Visibility, designed to honor, embrace, and celebrate what one opinion piece describes as “a largely silent segment of our society.”

It appears this rich, vibrant, and emotionally well adjusted demographic is no longer silent. In fact, its members are barking at the top of their hormonally altered lungs all over this great globe of ours.

You will be relieved to learn that trannies are finally voting in El Salvador and that two security guards in the Philippines are being sued for discrimination after telling a male-to-female tranny to get out of the ladies’ bathroom in their office. And last week a Namibian paper printed a sympathetic piece regarding the travails of transsexual hookers.

Yet as with all things regarding the endless stampede of social progress, there is much unfinished work. Trannies are still being “harassed and left to die” in India and are being shot to death in Pakistan for refusing to dance with men.

This person“€”we won’t use a gender pronoun because we honestly can’t tell what it is or in which direction it “transitioned””€”is organizing the first-ever “Trans* Week” in Chico, CA. The person, Conner Wenzel, says, “I came out as a lesbian six years ago when I was married to a man.” Sorry, that still doesn’t clear it up. Your guess is as good as ours.

Transgender rockers and rappers are sassily making strides in their respective musical industries. Stu Rasmussen, who occasionally calls himself “Carla Fong,” is America’s first openly transsexual mayor and is selflessly “selling his own shoes to supplement his city’s budget.” San Francisco taxpayers are now footing the bill for gender-reassignment surgeries for poor and uninsured people who wish to mutilate their genitals. A convicted serial killer in Washington State now blames his “former” male identity for the killings. Douglas Perry, who now calls himself “Donna,” fingers Douglas and not Donna for the 1990 slayings. A story of a transgender California teacher who announced over spring break that he will finally pretend he’s a woman full-time is worth viewing merely for the pictures of him shaving and lifting weights. And despite the toxic bilge that oozes from the TV set whenever Jerry Springer is on, he has finally vowed to stop using the word “tranny.”

Subsequent to”€”but perhaps not as a result of”€”pressure by traditional-marriage organizations who chafed that the Southern Poverty Law Center had classified them as “hate groups,” the FBI has ceased to list both the SPLC and the Anti-Defamation League as “resources” on its hate-crime Web page, although both groups are still listed on a separate page as part of the FBI’s “Public Outreach.”

Perpetually outraged ADL witch hunter Abe Foxman was quoted as saying, “We are shocked, surprised and disappointed that this would be done without any consultation with groups such as ours who have been working closely with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on issues of hate crime.” Foxman is at least partially correct. The ADL has a long history of working alongside the FBI and even of spying on enemies.

Propaganda from the deceptively named Southern Poverty Law Center, headed by the deceptively sanctimonious Morris Dees, recently inspired a terroristic shooting. The SPLC has also been cozy recently with Eric Holder’s DOJ.

Still, both the SPLC and ADL pretend they are fighting the power, although all evidence suggests they have been in direct collusion with power since they were founded. Perhaps the FBI removed the groups from that Web page because they didn”€™t want to make it so obvious.
