Let’s Hear It For Obama Diversity: Meet “Amanda”/Mitch Simpson

By Debbie Schlussel

Barack Obama’s latest commitment to “diversity” really stretches the meaning of the word.  If you get the right weird cosmetic surgery, you now qualify for affirmative action and an Obama administration job.


Mitch, er . . . “Amanda” Simpson: Barack Obama’s Newest Tranny Appointee

Just ask Mitch Simpson, er . . . Amanda Simpson, Obama’s own “RuPaul.”

Amanda Simpson wishes being transgender didn’t matter when discussing her new job with the Obama administration. But as one of the first transgender appointees to the federal government, Simpson, 48, said the fact she was “Mitch” before becoming Amanda is relevant if only to illustrate the need for greater equality.

Uh, sorry, but we don’t have government-mandated “equality” for people who get face-lifts and boob jobs. And there isn’t a need to do so for men who pay doctors to slice off their penises.

“So many employers and people in this country are not willing to look past that, and that’s why this is important.”
Simpson begins her new position today as a senior technical adviser with the Department of Commerce.

PUH-LEEZE. I can just imagine how they are laughing at us in Greater Arabia. We have men, who voluntarily remove their manhood forever and wear lingerie and make-up, getting appointed to positions running our country. HELLOOOOO . . .? Sorry, dude-without-a-unit, it’s normal not to look past that.

As a boy, and then a man, who yearned to be a female, Mitch frequently donned dresses and wigs, and endured cruelty.

Simpson has spent thousands on surgeries to help her body look more female. She’s had her Adam’s apple removed, breasts added, forehead ground down and genital surgery.

Yeah, that’s who we want advising Commerce–someone who spent gazillions on a phony operation that doesn’t change his DNA and male chromosomes one iota.

Gender reassignment surgery is the most deceptively-named operation there is. One simply cannot “reassign” or change his/her gender. I call it “stimulus package for plastic surgeons.” The male patient permanently gives up his package (or the female patient gets one). And a doctor who can’t find enough nose job work gets a stimulus.

At least one other transgender person has been appointed by the Obama administration . . . . Obama is the first president to appoint openly transgender people.

Wow, lucky us. Ain’t America grand?

“It shows that this president is serious about hiring an administration that looks like this country,” Mara Keisling, the executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality said.

Uh, no, it shows that this president is serious about hiring an administration that looks like “Tootsie.”

Simpson was recognized by the YWCA not only for her professional accomplishments but also “because she had to overcome a number of obstacles to achieve outstanding work,” said Janet Marcotte, executive director for YWCA Tucson.

Yeah, “obstacles” like keeping his bra straps in place, which is hard work . . . especially for a dude.

Debbie, I’ve always abhorred people who change themselves contrary to nature. They should be driven off the face of the earth. Instead we honor human freaks and ghouls like they are human beings. Let’s hear it for diversity!

NormanF on January 5, 2010 at 2:42 pm

When I first heard about it in the 1970s with the world’s first tranny surgery, I was physically sick. Such people completely repel me and I hate every thing about them. There is something wrong with people incapable of accepting themselves as they are. They get no sympathy or compassion from me!

NormanF on January 5, 2010 at 2:45 pm

The only people who benefit are the ones who do the surgery and provide the hormone shots. It really is only legalized self-mutilation. The George/Christine Jorgensen Story is really old news, as are the ultimate results. It really is an expensive fraud.

“Amanda Simpson wishes being transgender didn’t matter when discussing her new job with the Obama administration. But as one of the first transgender appointees to the federal government, Simpson, 48, said the fact she was “Mitch” before becoming Amanda is relevant if only to illustrate the need for greater equality.”

So, are we going to have a quota for eunuchs now? I did not hear much about qualifications for the job in all of this.

Worry01 on January 5, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    Quote: “I did not hear much about qualifications for the job in all of this.”

    If you want to see someone’s qualifications you should get your news from a real and reliable source. Such as the White house news release. Amanda’s qualifications are extensive, what’s between her legs isn’t going to help her do the job any better. Really, it should be no one’s concern.

    Inharmsway on January 6, 2010 at 1:17 pm

I’m sure these two will be working really close together.

mark hammond on January 5, 2010 at 3:12 pm

I bet the next bill to come down the pike is government aid for all trannies and their surgery. All praise J. EDGAR OBAMA. I like to see the faces of all the conservative Americans whether Democrat or Republican who voted for this non-America President. I’m truly embarrassed his African skin tone may reflect wrongfully on Black America.

seahawker on January 5, 2010 at 3:13 pm

Seems the US was a greater country when it wasn’t so diversity obsessed. Here’s something I came across relating to the State Department’s obsession with opening the US to “under-represented” populations, their potential hostility to us be damned:

“The State Department roster of all countries whose nationals have received “diversity visas” to immigrate to the United States in 2010, for example, shows that 2 of these immigrants will be from Luxembourg, 3 from the Solomon Islands, 4 from French Guiana, 5 from Reunion, 6 from Cape Verde, 7 from Malta, 8 from Guinea-Bissau, 9 from Comoros, 10 from Suriname–and 72 from Yemen. Nationals of the four states listed by the State Department as state sponsors of terrorism–Cuba, Iran, Sudan, and Syria–also received “diversity visas” from the State Department to immigrate to the United States in 2010. These include 98 from Syria, 298 from Cuba, 1,084 from Sudan, and 2,773 from Iran.”

Raymond in DC on January 5, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Worry, you’re correct. That’s what makes people retch. What normal man or woman would mutilate themselves? There is nothing normal or natural about trannies, no matter what Hollywood and the media would like you to believe.

NormanF on January 5, 2010 at 3:21 pm

This must be the “change” Obama talked about. This probably the worst administration ever. We have freaks, tax cheats, transgenders, and a child molestation advocate– in charge of our childrens’ safety at our schools. Plus numerous “Czars” who oversee every little detail of our lives.

John on January 5, 2010 at 3:21 pm

This IS probably the worst…. 😉

John on January 5, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Raymond, I posted the link to that story under Debbie’s Yemen thread. This obsession with diversity is absurd and is getting out of hand.

NormanF on January 5, 2010 at 3:22 pm

I think it should be a crime to operate on these people. They are sadly mentally ill. I used to work with someone like this at a large megacorp. This person was a horrible employee with serious mental issues (not just about changing genders). Anyone else would have been fired, but this person was promoted. Basically all this person does is work on “diversity” committees and waits for a slip up so they can win a big lawsuit and retire. What was really upsetting was everyone was told by HR when this person was hired that any comments or complaints would get YOU fired !!! This person even got away with telling off several major clients—nothing happened to them. This person used the women’s bathroom, so all of the women on the floor went downstairs or upstairs to use the bathroom. Finally there were massive layoffs there—who is still there–you guessed it—the She/him.

jimmyPx on January 5, 2010 at 3:30 pm

Hey, I think I get it. He/She can now go into the YMCA and change cloths with the gurlz right? This could cath on for teen aged guys looking for the right moment etc…

The whole thing is done so they can hang out with the ‘others’ that they claim to be a part of? So like, the gurlz won’t hang with me as a guy, I’ll become one of them and then I can hang with all the gurlz I want?

Q: A guy gets a sex change operation 100% done. He/she then dates guys. Is he straight or not?

Dickn52 on January 5, 2010 at 3:30 pm


Two gay guys walking down the street. A beautiful girl walks out of a restaurant in front of them.

One guy turns to the other and says, “it’s times like this I wish I was a lesbian”

dan on January 5, 2010 at 4:14 pm

I don´t remember how many times I’ve rediculed Europe for her leftism, anti-Semitism, appeasement, cowardice, weakness, muticulturalism and diversity nonsense and how many times praised USA for her exceptionality. I take back and say USA is not a bit better than Europe with all these sick and crazy people representing the Hussein Obama administration. Your politicians are as worthless as ours and a president as a laughing stock.

David on January 5, 2010 at 4:18 pm

“It shows that this president is serious about hiring an administration that looks like this country,” Mara Keisling

Well then, Mara, where are the federal appointments for gangstas, murderers, pedophiles, serial killers, extortionists, swindlers, etc. WHO REPRESENT a much larger segment of the American fringe?

The Federal government is no place for criminals, or, the self-absorbed. The focus is on the needs of YOUR COUNTRY. Not, you.

I doubt he, she, it… has any ability to stay on task once the pressure mounts or, the whispering behind the back starts… feeling types should be in charge of art projects, nothing more.

The Canadien on January 5, 2010 at 4:31 pm

This THEIR statistics:
“The National suicide rate is 3 per 100,000 People. The Transgender Transsexual suicide rate is 31% of our group. Over 50% of Transsexuals will have had at least one suicide attempt by their 20th birthday. Even more self harm themselves daily either by cutting or self mutilation.”

Healthy bunch!… but of course its society’s fault. We must ‘respect’ them though as savvy LA and New Yorkers know – they usually end up prostitutes, drug addicts and make she-male porn till they can pay for ‘the operation’.

Scariest of all? Virtual children are now being encouraged by their hip parents for ‘gender re-assignment’.

poetcomic1 on January 5, 2010 at 4:47 pm

And ‘she’ doesn’t think that the transgender aspect should be discussed. Yeah, right. She is obsessed with it, and all of them knew that this would be focussed on. She loves it. Plus it diverts attention away from her lack of qualifications, as you suggested. Of course, she probably won’t do any worse than the jokers we’ve had for the past several decades.

Little Al on January 5, 2010 at 6:25 pm

What sort of “technical” field does Simpson come from? It sounds like Simpson has a job that doesn’t require typing, like a Liz Ray/Lewinsky type of thing.

chsw on January 5, 2010 at 6:26 pm

Let’s hear it for Mr., ahem, sorry, Ms. Garrison!

Poliphilo on January 5, 2010 at 6:55 pm

Snow White’s story done in drag, but where are the ugly step-sisters?

Homoland "Security" on January 5, 2010 at 8:23 pm

Trannys are abbynormal period. Why would any employer take the risk of hiring someone that is mentally ill and more than likely will file a lawsuit for some PC crap.

Any male that cuts off their penis is not only mentally ill but should be put out of their misery.

ScottyDog on January 5, 2010 at 8:29 pm


sjh on January 5, 2010 at 8:56 pm

Despite the incredible ick!gross! factor of this appointment, Ms./Mr./?? Simpson has qualifications for the job of technical advisor for monitoring exports of sensitive technologies. Simpson apparently has been a test pilot and a defense systems engineer. I hope that Simpson has a better understanding of dual-use and military tech than did her/his predecessors who licensed much stuff to China, especially during the 1990s.

At least the ick! gross! personal stuff is open, so that Simpson cannot be blackmailed with it by enemy countries or organizations.


chsw on January 5, 2010 at 10:27 pm

Dear Mitch, Amanda or Whatever

Congratulatinons!! You know we really need to talk. With the recession and all I think we can save a few bucks if we trade out some items. I have so many skirts and blouses, lipstick, panty hoses and feminine hygenie needs that I never use. Hope you have some flannel shirts, after-shave lotion and maybe some clean, I mean clean boxers. How is the hormone therapy working for you?
Now don’t think you are the first transgender to serve in Barack’s House. Remember I can make sure TSA will inspect you through those new airport full body scanners. If you know what I mean?

Janet Napolitano

CaliforniaScreaming on January 5, 2010 at 10:30 pm

They can change ’em and rearrange ’em, but she/he/it will always have the hands of a man. Remember the ‘man hands’ episode from Seinfeld? I’ve seen a specimen of these pathetic creatures and it(how do you apply gender here, or can you?)was creepy, if not disgusting. The doctors who take part in ghoulishness should AT LEAST have their licenses revoked!

T. Y. on January 5, 2010 at 10:50 pm

Hatred doesn’t look good on you Debbie.

Norman Blitzer on January 6, 2010 at 12:00 am

I am shocked by the hatred, ignorance and vile comments here. Maybe I shouldn’t be, considering how horribly bigoted most of the country is… but still, you people sicken me.

As a female to male transsexual, I know firsthand what this is like. It’s not “mutilation”. It’s not about trying to be something (or someone) you’re not. It’s about trying to feel comfortable and happy in a body that doesn’t seem right. In fact, the more research that is done, the more science is finding that there’s a hormone imbalance in the womb that causes the brain to be imprinted as one sex, but the body fails to develop the same way as the brain. So you know what? It could very well be a medical condition, no different than being born with a cleft palate or an extra toe.

Call us freaks all you want. That really shows how big and bad you are, sitting on your computer and insulting people who go through shit you can’t even imagine. How compassionate, intelligent and educated! Yeah, right. I will thank you, though, for reminding me just what’s wrong with humanity. Bigoted, ignorant, selfish, self-centered assholes who can’t be bothered to learn about other sorts of people and show some basic civility for the hardships they face.

Well, guess what? We are being who we are, we are being true to ourselves by admitting our gender issues and not shutting up and going away. Some of us are lucky enough to be born the men and women we know ourselves to be, both in mind AND body. Some of us have to work our asses off to show it and prove it. The only thing that’s sick is that people think that somehow they’re more of a man or woman because they were one of the lucky ones, and that it gives them a right to be pricks to those who weren’t.

Do us all a favor and educate yourselves:


Maybe then you can yoink the sticks out of your butts and, oh, I don’t know. Start treating people like people, and not like a disease.

Will on January 6, 2010 at 12:57 am

Oh, and FYI…

DNA and chromosomes don’t matter much. There’s XY, XX, but also XXY and XXYY and other abnormal chromosome patterns out there. Don’t use science terms unless you know what the hell you’re talking about, thanks.

Will on January 6, 2010 at 1:00 am

Could have been Michelle’s idea. Maybey FLO just needed someone around who understands her (ahem) situation 😉

theShadow on January 6, 2010 at 1:09 am

    just because a woman is tall that doesn’t make them masculine lol. Just look at female bodybuilders.

    Matthew on January 6, 2010 at 1:31 am

Reader Will has a good point. However, most bigotry is from radical Islam (our enemies). They execute people for being infedels and they commit violent crimes against alot of people. I do think people should be more sensitive on other’s personal issues but it shouldn’t be shoved in everybody’s face.

Matthew on January 6, 2010 at 1:27 am

Transexuals sure do like to spend a lot of time trying to convince and make people accept how normal they really are. Sorry Will-ma, you’re not and we won’t. You think we’re a hatefull, cruel, horribly bigoted country?…
try selling your story to some nice muslim folk and let us know how you do.

theShadow on January 6, 2010 at 1:33 am

So they gave the flight 253 undy-bomber a job.

So what?!

Shy Guy on January 6, 2010 at 1:48 am

I’m disappointed in you Debbie. America is a country where we all have personal liberty and the freedom to pursue happiness. Amanda’s quest for her own personal happiness is really not your business or that of anyone else. From what I’ve read, she is very qualified for this position and has a great deal of experience that should enable her to be excellent in her new job. This is what matters. To me, this is not about “diversity” but about a qualified individual getting a position that she can excel in. Anything else is beside the point. If the Obama administration is portraying this as diversity, this is not a favor to Amanda. From what I’ve read of her take on this situation, she is seeing it as a job she is qualified to do, and is eager to do. No more and no less. Of course, the press is making hay with the fact that she is a transsexual woman, and she is the first to reach a position like this, and so it feels like news. And for now, it is. However, what is important about her and this story is ultimately not the fact that she transitioned medically and socially and legally from male to female, but that she is a person who is being appointed to do a job. In fact, that means this is not a special story, since her being transsexual should not matter. At least not in this great and free country.

Max on January 6, 2010 at 3:52 am


I’ve only one thing to say about this, and that’s . . .

……. “D’OH!”

yonason on January 6, 2010 at 4:01 am

What I propose, is to write more articles like this, to lure the dickheads who support it into one place, then we gas the fuckers.

There’s the solution to the world’s HUGE FUCKSTICK HICKS problem. So that we TRANSGENDERED individuals (not trannys, lrn2Terminology you uneducated dickwads) can be ourselves without having to put up with you lot.

Haters gonna hate.

Nathan on January 6, 2010 at 4:19 am

Debbie great article as usual. Does the Big O have any friends who are normal? BTW the named should be UNMANDA.

Marc on January 6, 2010 at 4:53 am

@Matthew: No, most of the bigoted people in the world are living right in the good ol’ US of A. All you have to do is read over 99% of the comments here to see that! The true “enemy” of anyone is stupidity… and frankly, calling people “freaks” and all that is nothing but stupidity.

There’s NO excuse for it, and anyone who dares to call themselves “American” should be ashamed by such ignorant, blind hatred.

@theShadow: D’aw, you tried to be snide. Nice try, but after you get death threats in Middle School and sexually assaulted in broad daylight just for how you express your gender, the whole “Will-ma” thing is just laughable.

I might not be normal, but neither are you. At least I can sleep easy knowing I am intelligent, well educated, thoughtful, caring, compassionate and totally awesome. Can you say the same? I doubt it, otherwise you’d be out there fighting for the life, liberty and happiness of ALL walks of life. Not just your own, and that of people exactly like you.

And you know, I have friends who are Muslim, and accepts me for who I am. ;] As I accept them for who they are. We have respect for one another. Imagine that!

No, I don’t THINK you are hateful, cruel, and horribly bigoted. I know it. It shows just from the vindictive words that crowd the majority of these comments.

Again. Please educate yourself, and maybe look beyond your nose long enough to see that people should be treated civilly regardless of their gender.

Will on January 6, 2010 at 7:47 am

I dunno, but IMO this administration still has to go a very long way to surpass Clinton. Clinton’s cabinet looked like the lounge scene in Star Wars and this is step #1 toward making this administration BE the lounge scene.

Cladagh on January 6, 2010 at 7:54 am

I work at the company that Amanda/Mitch did her transformation. Most employees (male or female) didn’t want to work with him/her. Partly, it was because of the operation. It is just odd working with someone dressed/changed to a woman when you know it is/was a man. And partly because she was rather rude. Considered herself above everyone else. Apparently, very intelligent, but, right or wrong, the butt of many jokes.

Also, just because he/she moved up in the company doesn’t mean much. It is well known around here that you promote incompetence and unwanted. It gets them out of the hair of their supervisors and dumps the problem on someone else. I know many people here that should be managers that can’t get promoted because their bosses don’t want to lose them. Meanwhile, people that can’t manage an ATM get promoted and moved to positions that will let everyone see how dumb they are.

I read this mentally ill persons qualifications and it seems IT is probably the most qualified person of all. Not for Chamber of Commerce but for like the Attorney Generals post. It can’t be more confused about it’s gender than Eric Holder is about what country he should have an allegiance to. Maybe put IT in as the DIVERSITY CZAR. Can’t be any worse than Mark Lloyd. G-d save us.

Joe on January 6, 2010 at 10:50 am

How about someone making a new video like “Lesbionic Woman” but also include all of the other sexual deviants in Obama’s administration?

Jarhead on January 6, 2010 at 10:56 am


Right. Because chromosomes make one incontrovertibly a man or a woman, but are trumped when they’re inconvenient to expressing bigotry.

At least try to make statements that hang together logically, will you?

Eh on January 6, 2010 at 11:03 am

The NATIONAL CENTER FOR TRANSGENDER EQUALITY????? WTF????? Exactly how many TRANSGENDER people ARE there in America? And exactly what is the annual budget for this Center? I am going to get on the phone right now and call my Senators and find out exactly WHEN they will be opening the National Center for Middle-Aged Scandinavian-Americans and how I can go about applying for the position of Director. I will be willing to bet that there are more Scandinavian-Americans in the state of Minnesota than there are transgender people in the entire WORLD!!! So I want equivalent funding. If the tranny center is getting $10 million annually, I want a budget of AT LEAST $100 Million. How soon do you think my Senators will get this Center started?????

DG in GA on January 6, 2010 at 11:06 am

    I will be willing to bet that there are more Scandinavian-Americans in the state of Minnesota than there are transgender people in the entire WORLD!!!

    and you’d lose that bet! in fact, youve probably met scores of transsexual individuals and never knew it. and if you took 10 minutes to educate yourself, you might know that. you might also know that the NCTE is a non-profit, and not government-funded. what i dont understand, is why any of you are concerned with the contents of anyones pants. did someone inquire about your penis size at your last interview? didnt think so. this woman (not man, or it – how appalling, and dehumanizing!) is highly qualified for the position she was appointed to. thats the bottom line. anything more is just extraneous sensationalism to get the likes of you all riled up, loading your guns. *yawn*

    Dave on January 9, 2010 at 2:19 am

I saw a tranny show once and talked to the “girls” in the bar afterwards. I “mistakenly” called one “she” and he set me straight right away that “I am a man.” (I thought uh, huh you look like one with those lashes prettier than mine…). BUT, I have always believed that someone who wants to change their sex is not a freak but may have genuine chromosome issues and we should not judge ANYONE regardless of our spiritual or cultural beliefs. Not our place to judge. Will and Nathan, we are not all haters but a lot of bloggers are hateful.

John, I think you’re a liar. By portraying Simpson as a bad person, you’re justifying this hit piece. That’s called propaganda 101 taught by Joseph Goebbels.

Norman Blitzer on January 6, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    Norman, Norman, Norman, lighten up dude! Whatever happened to your sense of humour? I may be a total prick sometimes but “a piece of sh*t!” …now that hurts 🙁
    Granted, at least Michelle has a woman’s figure and no MAN HANDS, still I don’t find her scowl the least bit attractive or feminine for that matter. Now if she looked anything like J. Lopez, Beonce, Halle Berry maybe, than you’d have a good point!

    theShadow on January 6, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    @Norman Blitzer: I also mentioned that Simpson was “apparently very intelligent.” So was I lying about everything? If so, maybe you are agreeing that she/he shouldn’t have been selected (something I never comented on). I also mentioned that it was what I heard. Everyone that I met that worked with Simpson said similar things. If you don’t want to believe it, that is fine. Just don’t go accusing me of lying when I made no direct statments other than about getting promoted at work.

    John R. on January 7, 2010 at 11:57 am

Highly qualified person trying to find job!!!! Yes i am! I didnt know that if i had put on my resume. Like to get spanked by my wife and saddled and rode. damn! they would have hired me on the spot!!!! OK, just a joke!!! Well, spanked???hmmmmm. Opps! should have said partner not wife! Wife my be considered normal[halfway]. Next time i go to a interview, What shade lipstick should i wear? Hell, at this point im willing to try anything!LOL.

mike c on January 6, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    yes, mike – because having a medical condition is totally the same as sexual deviancy. wake up. read a book.
