Rep. Liz Malia at Drag Queen Pageant

State Rep. Liz Malia is one of our least favorite legislators. She was instrumental in halting Gov. Romney's feeble attempt to disband the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth last May, and she was the Rep who called for a second vote to overturn his veto of the dangerous new independent "Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth" in July.
And what exactly is the "lifestyle" Rep. Malia wants to encourage our troubled youth to participate in? We can get an idea from her own "celebration" during "Boston Pride" week this past June. In some capacity, she attended a stenchy drag queen pageant during Pride, according to photos published by InNewsWeekly.
Is Malia the sort of person we want setting policy in our schools? Is this what the Massachusetts Legislature should be promoting as acceptable for our youth? Remember: this crossdressing-transgender-transsexual scene is a routine aspect of the GLBT world that the new "Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth" will be promoting as healthy and normal. The current commission director has announced their intention to add "Bisexual and Transgender" to its name -- and what better expression of "transgenderism" is there than a drag queen pageant???
Even the terribly compromised American Psychiatric Association still lists this sort of behavior as a disorder in its diagnostic manual: see "Gender Identity Disorder" in the DSM-IV. Yet our state government is supporting and promoting it among our youth!
