This is where politics is now in America.
A Virginia Democrat competing for a seat on the general assembly toted his transgender status in a campaign ad directed at his opponent who questioned the man’s womanhood.
In the video the man, who refers to himself as Danica Roem and sings in a metal band called “Cab Ride Home,” is scene applying makeup and celebrating his confusion over his gender.
“I’m running for office because my identity shouldn’t be a big deal, this shouldn’t be newsworthy or political. This is just who I am,” he said.
“When I stand up on the State House floor and the speaker says, ‘the gentlewoman from Manassas,’ LGBTQ kids everywhere will know they can succeed because of who they are, not despite it,” he said, as photos of teenagers are seen on screen.
The six figure ad is a response to his Republican opponent, Robert G. Marshall, who asked a reporter for the Prince Williams Times, “Why do you call Danica a female? Did Danica’s DNA change?”
A legitimate question that Roem took offense to.
“When Delegate Marshall said that, his lack of understanding and empathy weren’t just disrespectful toward me, personally,” he said in a statement. “He once again attacked every person in our community, including the teenagers in this video, who he’s singled out and stigmatized through his 26 years of discriminatory social policies designed to tear our community apart instead of unite us around our common needs.”
According to the Washington Post, Roem has out fundraised Marshall 5 – 1. A sign that indicates Dems think transgender issues take precedent over taxes, jobs, and healthcare reform.
