Transgender Pakistanis face society's scorn - www.usatoday.com

Let DC have a REAL vote (for a change)

In 2010, Wyoming had a population of 563,626.

During the same time, Washington DC had a population of 617,996.

Wyoming enjoys all the rights and liberties of a state.  Washington DC does not.

Get it?  Nah, neither do I.

I don't give a flying fart whether Washington DC residents are mostly Democratic, Republican, Green, independent, A Connecticut Party...whatever.  They have the right to choose what any other American chooses.  Period.  Get this done.  Now.

Let 'em have it - by e-mail!

A few things to remember; as I said before, the House of Representatives has an election every two years, and they had one this past Tuesday.  If your representative's mark "www.smith.gov" has a hash mark(#) next to it, it probably means that he/she is serving his last term.  However, until she/he gives up the seat formally (usually the first week in January) she/he continues the seat in November and December.  Therefore, it's considered proper etiquette to address the current member, not the future one.

In brief:  Let all LGBT people have the same rights as heterosexual people do, and let them be universal.
