An Italian opposition MP and former showgirl has expressed outrage after meeting a transgender colleague in the parliament's ladies' toilets.
Now, why can't we have political representation as diverse as this here in America, the original melting pot? Politics would be much more interesting.
I guess for the same reason that in America, the same nudity and language that is presented with nary a raised eyebrow all over Europe is routinely censored. This once-great land, the supposed cradle of free speech, is ruled by terrified old tight-asses who make it their life's work to make sure other people can't see, say, hear, smoke, drink, or feel the same things normal adults all over the civilized world do.
Just one tiny inconsequential example, but for what it's worth, this is the item that set that little rant off.
I hate everyone.
