Obama had a transgendered sex worker nanny?!
Elizabeth Pisani, author of the awesome book The Wisdom of Whores, who has done a ton of HIV work in Indonesia, points out that Obama's nanny was a transgendered sex worker: No wonder Obama's cool ... If Obamas nanny was playing volleyball on teams like those that now take on the cops behind the Melia hotel, he was not an openly gay man, she was a waria, or transgender. Waria live as women they even do the whole beauty pageant thing. She probably didnt carry on an affair with a butcher its more likely she was married to him. Indonesias attitude to homosexuality in the late sixties was not relaxed, it was unbelieving. Waria, on the other hand, are just a part of society; in some provinces, though not Jakarta, Waria is an accepted gender on the all-important national ID cards. Finally, transvestites dont hang around the streets singing. They hang around the streets cruising for people who will pay them for sex.
