Real Man, Pretend Man, and the Democratic National Committee

This is a man.

This is a not a man.

The Boston Herald and the Democrat Party are doing what they can to push for the latest lunatic concept, "transgender rights." The Dems have just added their first "transgender" member to their national platform committee, thanks to its head, Gov. Howard Dean.

The "female-to-male" transsexual appointee, Diego Sanchez, works for the radical AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, and used to be a co-chair of the Mass. Transgender Political Coalition.

Sanchez is a really woman who has undergone medical procedures we'd rather not go into here. Yet the Boston Herald refers to Sanchez as "he" (as instructed in the AP stylebook).

Here's a video of Jim Braude (New England Cable News) interviewing Sanchez and another transsexual, Joanne Herman (who's on the board of GLAD, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders) in March 2007.

When Diego Sanchez attends the Democratic National Convention in Denver this August, he’ll be making history.

Sanchez, the director of public relations and external affairs for AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, is the first transgender person to be named to a convention committee.

...“Gov. Dean’s appointment of a record seven LGBT members to the convention committees, including the first transgender member, is an important recognition of the Democratic Party’s diversity and our commitment to equality,” said DNC spokesman Damien LaVera.

Sanchez, of Lawrence, said he first told his parents that he believed he was in the wrong body when he was 5 years old. It took him 20 years to make the medical and legal transition into life as a man.
