    ...is unconscionable.  That's what happened in Rwanda.

    Unfortunately, it does exist (I won't say "she" - see Trix's sig line for why).

    Even worse is the implication that somehow she's a man, which she is not.  Neither is she a transwoman.

    But ugliest of all would be the idea that transwomen aren't women.

    Please cease and desist.

      My referring to Coulter as an "it" has nothing to do with tribal violence. To intimate that it does, is hysteria.

      As for her being a man or transgendered... that is something that is up in the air. To equate my term to the idea that transgendered women are not "real" women is, again, hysteria.

      No.

        People here at DK went to grade school with her (her grade school photo was displayed here), went to high school with her, and went to college here.

        Just when was she supposed to have changed sex?

        And even if she did, she wouldn't be a man.  Transsexual women are not men.

        I am a transsexual woman.  I have been referred to as "it."  Seeing you do so to someone else is a careless infliction of pain on us.

        You can defend your behavior all you want, but it is still offensive.

        Most people apologize when they are offensive, not defend the behavior.

          But I am not talking about you. I will refer to Coulter as an "it".

          If you wish to take that personally, I can't do anything about that.
