• Transgender Appointee Amanda Simpson Excites Everyone by Going to Work

    amanda-simpsonYesterday a woman named Amanda Simpson showed up to work as a senior technical adviser to the Department of Commerce, where she will advise people about technical things in a senior-type fashion.

    Anyway, this event made the news for obvious reasons

    "As one of the first transgender presidential appointees to the federal government, I hope that I will soon be one of hundreds," Simpson said in a statement.

    Simpson, 49, underwent a sex change about a decade ago while working in Tuscon for Raytheon Missile Systems, where she rose to the job of deputy director.

    President Obama named Simpson to the Commerce post.

    This truly is a landmark moment. For the first time in our nation's history, the people of America have acknowledged the existence of a senior technical adviser to the Department of Commerce.
