MUSLIM DOMINATE PAKISTAN MOVES FORWARD WITH  TRANSGENDER RIGHTS, WHILE THE US PRESIDENT AND REPUBLICANS STILL PROMOTE HATE AND DISCRIMINATION

FROM NPR:

"Pakistan's parliament passed a landmark bill on Tuesday that gives the country's transgender citizens fundamental rights.


The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act allows people to choose their gender and to have that identity recognized on official documents, including national IDs, passports and driver's licenses. The bill also prohibits discrimination in schools, at work, on public modes of transit and while receiving medical care.
The measure also says that transgender people cannot be deprived of the right to vote or run for office. It lays out their rights to inheritance, in accordance with their chosen gender. And it obligates the government to establish "Protection Centers and Safe Houses" — along with separate prisons, jails or places of confinement."
FEMALE HEAD OF STATE
I have lost count on how many countries have had or have successful female heads of state. We should not have a female head of state for the sake of it.  The Democrats need to learn the lesson of Hillary.  As someone who truly dislikes Trump, I was glad because of how the Electoral College works I did not have to vote for Hillary as the first female president.  
The Democrats need to start looking now for a well qualified viable moderate female to head the ticket in 2020.  I say this as a progressive who is on the extreme left.  We need a president the nation can be happy with, and not one I will be happy with.
The Democrats need to be serious that if they take the House in November, Nancy Pelosi will be sent packing and will not be allowed to be the Speaker of the House.  We need a moderate male or female  who can unite the moderates in both Parties, and not someone like Pelosi who will only further divide.
But politics is politics and reason will not win the day and the Democrats will mess all of this up insuring a second term for Trump.
