Not a Spoof! Ben Gurion University to Honor "Trangendered" Person who wants "Palestine" to become new US State
Friday, May 7, 2010
You thought Ben Gurion University had hit bottom? Not yet!
Maariv today May 7, 2010 reports that BGU is about to give an honorary doctorate to a "transgendered" person who is a male that had surgery to make himself look like a woman and now calls himself/herself/itself Martine Aliana Rothblatt. The surgery was done to him 16 years ago. Rothblatt seems some sort of satellite communications scientist. Martine was married to a woman before the surgery and had 4 children. He/she/it then STAYED married to that wife AFTER the surgery, so I guess now they live as a "lesbian" couple.
Maariv prefers to refer to "her" with the female pronoun rather than with the more correct he/she/it that I have used here!
Oh by the way, Rothblatt is a leading advocate of making Israel and "Palestine" into two states within the United States. Where Israel would cease to be a separate country.
Don't use the lady's room at BGU during the Board of Governors assembly!
