    Then why so few votes for Islamists in Pakistan?. I think those in Pakistan can be forgiven for being under zealous when pulling Anglo-American chestnuts out of the fire, given the recent history of support for military rule.

    Indeed, the very basis of this thread may be a cultural misunderstanding. The third gender is not typically what Americans mean when they talk about transgendered people, which is typically understood as a person of one genetic sex of a gender-identity associated with the opposite sex. However, broadly speaking, gender is a continuum and the middle of the gender falls into a general category of "transgendered."

    The sort of transgender we are speaking of here is generally genetically male and identifies as a third gender, neither male nor female. This categorization of a third gender has precedent is antiquity as diverse as the ancient Greeks and Persians to the Native Americans. We see evidence of it in the "neuter" gender in the Romance languages.

    Over 50% of the electorate voted her in and you have deduced that the MAJORITY in Pakistan wanted her killed....how?
