Apparently, when it comes to good-natured, smirking ridicule, "transgendered" is the new "gay":

“We live in a generation now where dudes are chicks and chicks are dudes.” (AP)
And, sadly, we also live in a generation where those folks who want to stop any more troops from being killed are accused of not "supporting" them, while service-dodging, keyboard-pounding chickenhawks feel the need to tell us how they would have kicked some serious, handgun-wielding ass, fuckin' A!
It's a funny world, isn't it?
