The Obama administration has tapped Raffi Freedman-Gurspan, a Latina transgender woman, to be the first openly trans person to serve in the White House.

The announcement was quickly praised by trans advocates, particularly the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), where Freedman-Gurspan previously worked. But it also signals the broader shift in the US over LGBTQ issues - and the growing acceptance of trans rights as a serious, mainstream cause.

"President Obama has long said he wants his Administration to look like the American people. I have understood this to include transgender Americans," NCTE executive director Mara Keisling said in a statement. "A transgender person was inevitably going to work in the White House. That the first transgender appointee is a transgender woman of color is itself significant. And that the first White House transgender appointee is of a friend is inspiring to me and to countless others who have been touched by Raffi's advocacy."

If by "american people" he means the liberal voting base, it's the only thing he has succeeded at as president. All I see is a bunch of racist minorities with huge chips on their shoulders, and a few Marxist/socialist/communist ******'s pretending to suffer from white privilege/guilt.

If this continues, I'll guarantee the formation of a nationalist party. Trump is already tapping into this dynamic.

Considering that the transgender population of this country is .0something or even less
maybe they should donate it's salary to transgender causes just to eliminate all the bathroom confusion
