Because freedom can't protect itself
Ur all freaks!
@Anyonymous Just as you are too!
With all due respect to the crictis, there has been a policy about this for at least ten years. It was initiated during the Clinton administration not to discriminate against employees or prospective employees on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity, among other factor, eg. race, ethnicity, religion, sex, etc.. This isn't new, only public. It's good that the Obama administration finally made it official on the Website.Amanda Simpson may be the first transwoman political appointee in the federal government , she is far from the first (current or former) transgender government employee. There have been quite a few who transistioned on the job, only quietly and protected by regulations. I hope she doesn't think she speaks for or represents them. They may not appreciate or like it.
