I was very disappointed to see the article in the Post Crescent about the election of a transgender person voted in on the Appleton city council.
I have absolutely no problem with someone being transgender or being in an elected position, but, I do have a problem with bringing unneeded attention to it.
It is stated in the article that the newly elected councilman does not want his gender to be a distraction, but, yet, here is this article bringing it to everyones attention.
Let's not lose focus on what is important here and that, in my opinion, is NOT whether a person is man, woman, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, or how many tatoos they have.
I expect more from the Post Crescent than reporting this crap.
