The National Enquirer Claims Calling Richard Simmons Transgender Isn’t an Insult

“Richard Simmons` reputation wasn`t destroyed after a story ran he was transitioning to a woman and that`s why he can`t sue … so claims the National Enquirer.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, American Media says Richard`s defamation suit shouldn`t stand because there`s nothing insulting about saying someone is transgender. On top of that, AM says for most of his 40-year career, Simmons created gender uncertainty by wearing flamboyant, feminine attire.”


You don`t need a doctorate on gender studies from Harvard University to deduce that Richard Simmons isn`t a heterosexual. Simmons is an American icon and his reputation as an eccentric and sexual ambiguous personality was established decades before America accepted gays, lesbians and transgender people.

I can imagine a gentleman who shaves his legs and has a penchant for wearing hot pink hot pants dating men, or transitioning into a female, but making love to a woman? Hell No!

The lawyers for the National Enquirer are spot on in their legal reasoning, how can Simmons allege that his reputation was ruined when the tabloid ran a story claiming he was transitioning to a woman named Fiona, when there`s nothing wrong with being transgender?

Gay rights organizations should sue Simmons for implying that there`s something wrong with being transgender.

Exactly how was Simmons damaged, these days he`s a recluse who never leaves his home. He hasn`t lost any gigs, because for all practical purposes he`s retired from public life.

Richard/Fiona needs to put on his big girl britches and suck it up.

It’s Not “He” and “She”, It’s “Ze”! WTF?

“Oxford University is encouraging students to use the gender-neutral pronoun ‘ze’ instead of ‘she and ‘he’.

The students’ union wrote in a leaflet that the move was intended to reduce the risk of transgender students being offended.
 Students hope that the use of ‘ze’ will continue into university lectures and seminars, reported The Sunday Times.

According to Oxford University’s behaviour code, using the wrong pronoun to define a transgender person is an offence.”

Daily Mail

Transgender individuals compromise .03 percent of the population, to invent a gender-neutral pronoun to appease a fraction of the population is patently ridiculous, and yet another example of political -correctness run amok.

Transgenders aren’t a legitimate minority deserving of special protection, they suffer from a psychiatric disorder (gender dysphoria). Should Oxford University students be forced to address people who suffer from multiple personality disorder with the plural pronoun “they.” And should nutjobs who suffer from delusions of grandeur be addressed as “Napoleon”, or whatever historical person they imagine themselves to be?

I could care less if somebody identifies as transgender or gender fluid, but in the real world there are only two genders (male and female) and only two gender specific pronouns (he and she.)

In a prestigious university where political-correctness prevails, and in a mental institution where madness prevails, nobody will look at you strange if you use a gender-neutral pronoun. But in the real world you’d be well-advised to address people as “he” or “she” if you don’t want to get beat to a bloody pulp.
