    That's why she told that little white lie about them.

    So the parents should have lied for her. Yes?

    What I have learned from this: apparently there are some on the right who want to turn this into a thing about transgendered individuals, a group for whom they have an irrational hatred. Obviously not all, but clearly some.

    Why must we take two completely different things and mash them into one?

    Whoever is doing that is nutz. This story has far too much meat on its own to get transgenders involved in this. Distractions are dumb. Focus on the story.

    Did you know this clown sued Howard University for discrimination because she was white? Seriously.

    She's a Special kind of nuts. I think she may even post here, though I'm not sure who it is, but given the special kind of nuts we attract here it wouldn't shock me at all.

    You may have been facetious when you said this, but I've actually come across freaky people like her on interwebz message boards, including this one.

    This isn't necessarily about right and left. After being exposed, Dolezal said she still thinks she's black, so one question is whether ethnicity is a state of mind. I don't wish to get into the trans-thing either, but I can see why people might see a similiarity between ethnicity and gender identity.
