“Misgendering” – Lt Gov Winsome Sears Accidentally Calls a Transgender “Sir”

Aren't there more pressing issues than "misgendering" individuals?

Virginia Lt Gov Winsome Sears is a strong patriotic woman who served in the United States Marine Corps. But when she inadvertently referred to a transgender person as “Sir” during a session of the legislature, all hell broke loose.

As Lieutenant Governor, Winsome Sears presides over the Virginia Senate. Senator Danica Roem is a male who identifies as a woman. His/her voice is reportedly deep.

“Madam president, how many votes would it take to pass this bill with the emergency clause?” Rohm asked Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, a Republican, about a mundane bill that was being voted on.

“That would be four-fifths,” replied Sears, who as lieutenant governor presides over the Senate.

“And what would be the exact number for that madam president?” Roem added.

“Yes, sir, that would be 32,” Sears said as she looked through papers. “Those in favor of that motion shall record their votes aye,” she said, calling the vote.” Luke Rosiak at The Daily Wire

Now, for a minute, remember that Ms. Sears is a United States Marine veteran, as is her husband, Terence. Saying “Yes, Sir” is second nature at the sound of a deep male voice. I’ve called females “Sir” on occasion, and I wasn’t a Marine but did work in law enforcement long enough that it’s still a habit.  But never mind all of that, Democrats threw sixteen kinds of a fit over what she said. Danica Roem “stormed” out of the chamber and missed the vote on the bill before the body. Extremely thin skin, apparently.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

“I said something that upset Sen. Roem. Let it be known I am not here to upset anyone. I am here to do the job that the people of Virginia have called me to do and that is to treat everyone with respect and dignity. I myself have at times not been afforded that same respect and dignity, but in this body and as long as I am president of the Senate and by the grace of God, I will be treated with respect and dignity and I will treat everyone else with respect and dignity.” Lt Gov Winsome Sears

Lt Gov Sears put the session into recess for a few minutes at the request of one of the Senators, but when it resumed, she called on another Senator, Ghazala Hashmi who refused to speak. She put it into recess again. Hashmi finally did discuss the bill, but the Democrats refused to accept Sears’ apology, calling it a “smear” they will not forget.

Leftist news media called Winsome Sears’ apology “bizarre.” It was not. Their reaction to her was the bizarre part. Go, home, Democrats, you’re drunk.
