  1. in my lifetime I hope I see a transgendered person married to another transgernered person one of whom is Muslim the other a Jew with an adopted Christian child – as first family. I dont care what the color makeup.

    Did I mentioned one of them is gay?

  2. What a melange! Tasty. 😉

  3. Then we will know we have moved beyond the merely stupid to the truly enlightened.

    🙂

  4. Judith: To paraphrase a famous American, “The tree of gender equity must be refreshed from time to time with the sweat of feminists”

  5. cant say I like that one. :-0

  6. Edited to be more palatable but certainly no less true. Evolution is frequently slower than we like it to be.

  7. in this country. anyway ..must be how young we are. I remember the Irish actor, Biran Cox, noting before the Iraq invcasion that the benign in Europe see as a teenager off to wreck the family car. Ireland has had two women Presidents if my memory is correct.

  8. that would be Brian Cox –

  10. Nice one, Hieke. Touch my monkey!!

  11. BFF: That’s “PET MY MONKEY!”, Dieter.
    Que pasa, amigo?
