Keep Houston Press Free

Comment Of The Day: Transgenders, Child Molesters, What's The Difference?

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

Hey, who says the Comment of the Day has to be something you agree with? Sometimes it makes sense to highlight a comment so bad it reminds you there are Americans out there who don't think like you do.

We wrote last month about Mayor Annise Parker appointing the city's first transgendered judge, Phyllis Frye. The news finally reached one of our readers, who offered this insight:

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Said Harv:

Hey this is a good start, but if we truly want diversity, we must fill the city council with murders, Sodomites, child molesters, etc.

Hey, there are no moral ablsolutes...right?

Our motto for the new diverse Houston should be, "If it feels good...do it!"

Harv: We're guessing he's not an Obama man.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
