Love the First Amendment. It helps us spot the assholes from a safe distance.

Elizabeth Warren admits identifying herself as Native American

 Elizabeth Warren revealed for the first time late Wednesday night that she identified herself as Native American to Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania when she taught at both schools.
 

"At some point after I was hired by them, I... provided that information to the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard," Warren said in a statement to the Boston Globe, the newspaper reported. "My Native American heritage is part of who I am, I'm proud of it and I have been open about it."

Too bad it's not true.

Warren, who is a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, had previously admitted to listing herself as a minority in a legal directory in the '80s and '90s, due to a Cherokee heritage that her family claims. But Warren had not previously acknowledged ever identifying herself as a Native American to the two universities at which she was hired to teach.

Warren's admission on Wednesday was prompted by the Globe, which had obtained federal statistics that indicated the university listed a Native American female professor for the "1992-93 school year, the first year Warren worked at Harvard, as a visiting professor," the newspaper reported.

Warren has been struggling for weeks to steer the narrative of her campaign away from questions about her heritage. But her Republican opponent, Sen. Scott Brown, his supporters and news outlets continue to focus on Warren's background and on how she has identified herself in her professional life.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
