Transgender MP in toilet fracas (Italy)
Leave it to a rightwinger MP to feel offended about the presence of a LGBT person near her! Thankfully Italian communists don't suffer from this type of bigotry.

Transgender MP in toilet fracas

Saturday, 28 October 2006, 16:46 GMT 17:46 UK



Ms Luxuria is Italy's
first transgender MP

An Italian opposition MP and former showgirl has expressed outrage after meeting a transgender colleague in the parliament's ladies' toilets.

Elisabetta Gardini, spokeswoman for former PM Silvio Berlusconi's party, said she felt ill after the encounter during a break in Friday's session.

The incident led to heated debate about which toilet the transgender MP, known as Vladimir Luxuria, could use.

Ms Luxuria says she has been using ladies' toilets for years.

Using the men's would have created even bigger problems, she said.

1. I wonder when the US will elect its first transgender Congressman/woman
Openly transgender, I should say.

2. When the world experiences its next Ice Age via Global Warming
Or, as others might say, "When Hell freezes over".

3. I always wonder which R's have to wear
womens undergarmets before they can give a speach.

Or maybe I just find it amusing to think of them that way when they are going on about BS.
