    --"I identify mostly as a heterosexual male," Rasmussen said. "But I just like to look like a female."--

    Then he`s not transgendered. He`s just messed up and has identity issues.

    Yea, if he considers himself a heterosexual male, I would say he`s more transvestite than transgender, but I could be wrong.

    "a person appearing or attempting to be a member of the opposite sex, as a transsexual or habitual cross-dresser"-transgender,he is.

    oregon sounds like an openminded place,sad that most cali couldn`t conjure the same.

    Being openminded is not always a good thing.

    Why not allow men to marry little boys? No? Well you`re just a closeminded bigot.

    Works both ways.

    wow,way to turn that WAY out of proportion Tay-Dor.
    A healthy trangender man has nothing to do with little boys.I was merely saying that dispite a man wearing women clothing,he was able to be elected.
    Maybe every time I say Openminded I`d just added "Oh but not the kiddy molesters or rapist or so on and so on...."

    Now that`s something I never expected to hear in my lifetime. What next, "Arkansas to Outlaw Same-Family Marriage"? No I guess some things are more than just improbable...

    Tay-dor, there`s a difference between making own decisions, and others making the decision (regardless whether by force or by manipulation) for you.

    With regards to the he-she mayor... Yay USA?

    Oh no! A transgender! In four years, we`re all going to be legally required to change our own sex!

    Taydor, did you just seriously equate transgenderism with paedophilia? Dammit, I think you did.

    You guys are confusing gender with sex. There is a difference. While he`s still a part of the male sex, gender is what society sees you as. If he was just walking down the street and no one knew anything about him, they would think he was a woman. Therefore, transgender.

    Ok, maybe its just early, but the first few sentences sound like they are suggesting Obama was from Oregon. Look:

    "This election marked the first African-American President. The first time in 40 years an Oregon Senate candidate beat an incumbent Senator. And in tiny Silverton, Oregon, residents have elected the man who`s believed to be the first ever openly transgender mayor in the United States."

    ----------

    I can see how you can get that from the two sentences, but I think they mean it this way:

    1. USA elected first african-american president
    2. For the first time in 40 years, an Oregon senate candidate beat an incumbent senator.
    And then,
    3. They elected the first openly transgender mayor.

    Sentence one and sentence 2 have nothing to do with eachother except they`re both "first" things that happened.

    HAHA! I`ve seen that guy, I used to live near there. He always hung out in front of the old theatre and talk to everyone that walked by. That is a cool town.

    Oregonian that I am, people are pretty proud to have him as a mayor (in Oregon).

    And lytesend, did you even read the article? Stu said he identifies as a heterosexual MAN who just likes to wear woman clothing. He`s called a HE lol.

    This is ridiculous. That man is a transvestite, not transgendered. He even says he identifies as a heterosexual male.

    The USA is a weird place. In one part they vote a transgender/transvestite as mayor but in another they won`t even allow non-heterosexual relationships. That said, the man/woman calls him/herself heterosexual...
