For those who don’t identify with the gender binary, filling out applications and official documents can be a real source of frustration.
That said, if you do happen to identify as either male or female, we can’t imagine too many scenarios where filling out that portion of a form should present any remote challenge.
And yet… Jared Kushner.
The senior advisor to the president of the United States, the man who has been tasked with brokering peace in the Middle East, is somehow registered to vote as a female.
The records of the New York State Board of Elections indicate Jared Corey Kushner as a registered female voter since 2009, Wired first reported.
“Kushner can’t even fill out the most basic paperwork without screwing it up, so it’s a mystery why anyone thinks he’s somehow going to bring peace to the Middle East,” Brad Bainum, a spokesperson for American Bridge, a liberal opposition research hub, told Wired. “Would anyone but the president’s son-in-law still have a West Wing job after repeated disclosure errors and a botched a security clearance form?”
While the gender mixup might easily be disregarded as human error (although when is the last time you checked the wrong gender on a form?), the disclosure errors Bainum refers to are much more serious.
In July of this year, CBS reported that Jared updated a disclosure form necessary to obtain a security clearance at least three separate times, adding names to a list of “foreign contacts” each time.
Kushner has also been under recent scrutiny for using a private email server to conduct official business.
Now where have we heard that before?
“Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman…”
He’ll be paid less, he should know.
Poor Jared, maybe he got confused because his father-in-law is boinking his wife.
When Ivanka said she wanted to “advocate for women” she meant HERSELF and JARED.
I foresee the next Caitlin Jenner
Big deal; he voted as a woman. How’s about we stay focused on the anti-LGBT-etc. policies that he’s working to promote?
Not only did he register in 2009 in New York as “Female” but prior to that his New Jersey Registration listed Jared’s gender as “Unknown”
“”A spokesperson for Kushner did not respond to a request for comment. Before 2009, his New Jersey voter registration noted his gender as “unknown,” The Hill reported.””
That could explain why Ivanka was looking so thirstily at Justin Treudeau when he came to the U.S. her family was in debt, at the Time she thought Kushner’s family was worth billions, and he likes celebs. A contractual marriage made in heaven.
Hm, I always thought it was “empowering” for people to embrace their feminine side.
Guess that only applies to open-minded liberals.
Awww, little Mo Bro’s screename has to do anything it can to attack “Liberals” Here’s a thought, why don’t you explain why you are so desperately trying to change the topic off of somebody, who has messed up every single form he’s ever filled out.
They deleted my comment for making a similar statement. I guess they found my comment ‘transphobic,’ despite the fact that nothing I said attacked actual trans people (only fake ones).
All these people care about is if you toe their ideological line. It really matter to them if you’re trans, black, or some other ‘marginalised’ group. If you don’t support their ideology, you’re an other and deserve nothing but ridicule.
@Brody: “Guess that only applies to open-minded liberals.” Well, duh! It doesn’t apply to closed-minded right-wingers because if THEY embraced their feminine side they’d be ridiculous hypocrites, don’t ya think?
@Kaiser: “nothing I said attacked actual trans people (only fake ones).” Naw… I saw your comment and that was not obvious at all. It looked exactly like you were accusing ALL trans people of being mentally ill.
No, it was referring to transtrenders.
“Transtrenders,” lol, well done, I’ll be using that one.
Republicans embrace their feminine side all the time (in bathroom stalls) after voting to take inalienable rights away from us.
All it takes is a man claiming to be a woman, so you can’t argue with him on it.
So you live in fear of a world of Eric Cartmans? You do realize that Southpark is satire, right? Little boys aren’t actually putting bows in their hair so that they can shit in the girl’s restroom.
So predictable. Mo Bro has brought out THREE different screenames on this one. My My My anything smacking of trengender issues certainly does upset you anti-lgbt GOP trolls doesn’t it?
you do know 15% of gays voted for Trump, right?
@leobaga..yeah, I reckon 100% of those 15% are closeted cases, who benefit from LGBTQ people and groups making a difference for their lives. It’s unfortunate that those 15% are so clueless and standing against themselves. No worries, like true republicans and closeted cases, whenever it starts affecting them, they’ll come around…after all Dick Cheney did so when he learned that his daughter was gay.
Stop misgendering Jared!
