Ayatollahville problem: Gays and lesbians are presented with a Hobson's choice—undergo a sex change operation or be executed by the theocratic, totalitarian state.
Responding to the latter, Foggy Bottom's old stone face pulls a switcheroo a la his boss (who, rather than acknowledge current horrors unfolding at the hands of ISIS and other jihadi outfits, quickly turned the discussion to Christian intolerance during the Crusades):
A report issued Thursday by the Department of State repeatedly refers to sex reassignment surgery in Iran as “gender-confirmation surgery.”
Speaking at the release of the State Department’s annual human rights report, Secretary of State John Kerry said of the designation that “There is nothing sanctimonious in this,” emphasizing the need for “humility” in the face of the U.S.’ own racial inequality...John Kerry calling for "humility" is like Hugh Hefner calling for monogamy.
As for Foggy Bottom referring to it as "gender-confirmation surgery"--not even Caitlyn Jenner, a heroine to the "progressive" crowd, is willing to confirm her gender by going the whole nine yards, penisectomy-wise--and no one is going to force her to. But notice how willing John Kerry is to carry the ball for the crazed Khomeinists and their Mengele-like surgeries in order to help smooth the way for his boss's heinous nuke treaty. (Sadly for him, Kerry underwent his surgeries--the removal of his spine and testicles--some time ago.)
