|Yes, that’s “Maura” to the right|
I was a sole woman among men in my former career that spanned 36 years. Because I was too “pretty” for what I did, that of a B2B analyst in a trading room, I wore mostly mannish suits and downplayed my feminine side. Because I was single, more than once co-workers accused me of either whoring with senior management for those well-earned promotions, bonuses and raises or being a lesbian.
At least both rumors were dispelled the older I got.
And now, there’s a new tv show, Transparent, where the patriarch of a Jewish family in LA, Mort, decides at 70 he will no longer “dress like a man.” In other words, he’ll be a transgender woman.
So guess what name he took: M A U R A!
Just my luck this show’ll be a hit.

It goes to show that Liberals aren’t all that liberal. I’m sure quite a few harbor anti-semitic, anti-gay, racist and misogynistic tendencies, but slather it all with smarmy feel-good platitudes which they will vehemently defend even beyond the borders of reason. It’s all a cover up of their own hatreds and prejudices. Which explains why they support all sorts of ‘can’t see the forest for the trees’ issues, especially those that will annihilate them one day.
So, I guess I’ll be Transgender Maura and will contact the writers of Transparent to change Mort’s name to something else. How about Cheri Blossum?
