A Man Who Became a Woman Who Can't Marry a Man is Running for Congress

Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness once made

the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to

be for Miami New


This week, Luke tries to understand how a transsexual running for Congress can be against

gay marriage.

A few weeks ago, I came

across some news that blew my mind. A Cuban-American woman who used to be a man

is running for Congress in South Florida as a Tea Party Republican.

Her name is Donna Milo. She

used to be called Ed before surgery in 2000 to become a full-fledged lady. If

she wins the primary, Milo will likely face the Democratic incumbent -- and female since birth -- Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Now Milo, who was married to a woman

and had two children before her sex change, is off the chain. She is against

gay marriage, and she's talking shit about President Obama. She even recently

told the Sun-Sentinel that the president and the

Democratic majority in Congress are turning the United States into Fidel Castro's Cuba.

She also told the

newspaper that she represents a "restoration to common-sense American

conservative values." Of course, she is against the recent overhaul in health

care. According to her website, Milo describes it as "de facto socialism." I can't believe


Let me remind Ms. Milo that

until 2007, Cuban citizens who wanted to have a sex change couldn't because the

government wouldn't allow it. She's lucky to be represented by a president who

supports rights for everybody and a health-care system that is for all people,

including transsexuals.

What I really can't

understand is her anti-gay marriage stance. Isn't that like turning on your own

people? It's not like she just woke up one day and decided to become a woman.

She knew for a long time that she was a lady in a man's body. That means she

was attracted to other men, which to me is the definition of gay.

Now she is

selling out gays, lesbians, and transgendered folks. Now she wants to crucify

them. Milo is just one of these

repressed conservative Republican dudes like George Rekers.

And she needs to do some

homework about her state too. In Florida, Milo can't marry

a man. State courts recognize only your biological gender at birth, so she

could marry only another woman -- which would make it a gay marriage -- which she

opposes. Ain't that some shit?

She's claiming to be Tea

Party affiliated. She needs to look at their handbook because it reads just

like the Klan's handbook. They don't like Jews, Blacks, Mexicans, Gays, and especially

people with sex changes. I think Milo's campaign is a publicity stunt by the rich Republican

good ole boys to make the Tea Party look like a grassroots

accepting-of-everybody movement. It's a bunch of crap.

At the end of the day,

how is she going to get conservative Republican voters, especially those old

Cubans in Little Havana, to accept that she had a sex change?

And if she did make it to

the general election, she has already alienated her own people, as well as

moderates who support gay marriage.

Milo needs to stand up for people like her. Gays, lesbians,

and transsexuals should be proud of her and the likelihood she would represent

them at the federal level.

Instead, she is their Benedict Arnold.
