Asshole.

Actually, I was wondering why they kept referring to "he".  If we are talking about a M to F trans, then the transition is complete and the correct use would be "her".  Unless I'm missing something.

Simple. You'll get some bites.

Is it bad that I had to look up whether he transgendered from male to female or vice versa because I truly couldn't tell from the photos that came up?

This is in the US? Oh wait, it's one of the enlightened states. Never mind.

Hm. I didn't read to see if it was mtf or ftm, and assumed based on name. Looking at the article now it appears to be mtf, so mea culpa.

Don't bother.  It's a 10 thousand dollar BUY IT NOW deal.  No offers at this time.

I could only find one comment regarding preferred pronoun and he said basically he doesn't worry about it or have a preference by identifying as 'in-between'.

From a huff Po article:

"I am a dude," he said. "I am a heterosexual male who appears to be a female."

So near as I can tell using the male pronoun is about as correct as anything else.

I don't think there is a formal agreed upon "pronoun" for those between the lines.

Many like to be called "she"; doesn't seem like that long ago they wanted to be called "ze". I don't think any language authority says calling them either of these is necessarily correct. Its more a respecting their wishes thing.

Whatever he or she is doing, it's a hell of a lot better tha sitting on your ass and spending the city's money.

Wikipedia says he "still mainly identifies as a man, but has breast implants and dresses as a woman."

In his own words, "I avoid 'pronoun angst' by personally not caring whether I'm referred to in male or female terms. I grew up here [Silverton] as a guy and have transitioned to something 'in-between' where either is correct - so either pronoun works fine."

As a matter of nomenclature, I would say Rasmussen is transgender but not transsexual.

Fark won't let me link directly.  It's an online magazine called Just Out . com (without spaces).

Just Google "Stu Rasmussen pronoun" because either Fark or I am really messed up today, apparently.

Well, we could always just use the indeterminate term "tranny" if we don't want to have to argue about whether it's transgender, transsexual, or transvestite.  :)

More like how many Cambodian children were exposed to chemicals to make and dye that wig?

12.

Subby fails. He's been the mayor of Silverton for a long time, IIRC.

Seems like he/she has his/her heart in the right place, trying to benefit the community. Very few if any straight pols. Would do this kind of thing, and not just because they have boring shoes.

The kind of indecision that leads to "Hmm, do I want to be a boy or a girl?" is not suitable to public office decision making ..
