President-elect Joe Biden has chosen Pete Buttigieg, his former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, to lead the U.S. Transportation Department, according to two people familiar with the matter. Buttigieg, 38, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who has never held federal office, would be the first LGBTQ person nominated to Biden's administration and, if confirmed, the first LGBTQ Cabinet secretary to be approved by the U.S. Senate. A spokesman for Biden's transition team did not immediately respond to a request for comment.(Snip) As Transportation secretary, he would put to use his background in urban affairs by overseeing a sprawling

Comments:

Urban affairs, you say? Also, "the most senior gay official confirmed by Senate" disrespects Secretary of State Hillary Rotten Clinton, and since we've already suffered a homosexual pResident and a transgender first kween, what difference does the LGBTQP status make?

So Biden can check off the LGBTQ, African-American, woman, hispanic and old, rich white guy (Kerry) boxes. What's left? Maybe someone who's actually qualified based on experience rather than demographics.

Diversity first! He's handing out Cabinet positions like they're ambassadorships. Rather telling, too, that neither camp will respond to requests for comment. A "background in urban affairs" - leave it to the Mail.

Until the late 1970s homosexuality was classified as a mental illness. However as a responce to homosexual shouting and activism (not medicine, nid ou) the classification was removed. Thus, using the previously valid medical term, we will ave a cabinet memberwho is psychotic.

#10, that's not correct. Having a mental disorder doesn't make someone psychotic. For example, there are people who have personality disorders (which used to be referred to as character disorders). Hitler was one of them, as he was more than likely a malignant narcissist or a psychopath. But he wasn't psychotic, unless his mind at times was altered by drug use. However, bad people can become paranoid because they do bad things to people, and are therefore, watching their backs. But you are correct that homosexuality was classified (until around 1973) as a behavioral disorder until an APA meeting was stormed by a group of homosexual activists who coerced the APA into removing homosexual behavior from the DSM.

I know Jill Biden likes to be addressed as "Doctor." What is the proper form of address for "most senior gay official confirmed by the Senate"? I don't want to be mistakenly irreverent about his gay achievement. I assume the adjective "most" modifies "senior" and not "gay". Pete was never that swish; can't imagine him getting recognized as "most gay," can you? How do you think Reuters knows there has never been a gay Cabinet Secretary before Pete Buttigieg in the 250 or so years of American history? Is there a database of civil servants sexuality somewhere? Was that part of that Patriot Act funding?

A woman who became the latest victim in a string of random subway attacks is recovering in the hospital with a fractured neck and says there is nothing she could have done differently to prevent the suspect from targeting her. Ruth Leon-Villegas recalled how she lay on the platform of the West 4th St.-Washington Square station in pain as suspect Matthew Montanez, 23, creepily stared at her after the attack—and no onlookers came to her aid despite her pleas. “I was saying, “help me, help me.” People were taking pictures but nobody did anything,” Leon-Villegas recalled.

Biden also snubbed Ric Grenell, whom Trump celebrated this year as the first gay cabinet member when he worked three months as acting director of national intelligence.(Snip) “And by the way, Jill and I have always

But the truth of the matter is that 60 percent of the people are occupying what I would consider a more reality-based universe,
