Flushed With Outrage

In saner times, this unfortunate man who labours under the delusion that he's actually a woman would have been given much-needed psychiatric treatment, instead of being pumped full of estrogen, surgically mutilated, passed off as a facsimile of a woman, and otherwise allowed to live out his delusions.

Instead, he's been elected to the Italian Parliament, where tragedy and hilarity have ensued:

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.

The matter has now been passed to parliamentary procedural officials to resolve.

Ms Gardini said she had been horrified to find Ms Luxuria in the toilets.

"It never entered my mind that I'd find him in there", she said. "It felt like sexual violence - I really felt ill."

Centre-right MPs backed her call for the creation of a third "transgender" toilet, Reuters news agency said.


Surely the Italian parliament has more pressing matters to concern itself with than this? But again, the sane majority is expected to bow to the whims of the insane few.

when you're not obsessing about homosexuality, it's a safe bet that you'll be obsessing about cross-dressing or other trans-gender issues.
