Midge Potts

I've heard her name for a while from my CodePink DC contacts. And as it turns out, CodePink's Midge Potts is a transgender woman.

There are plenty of conservative transwomen out there, and Potts is one of them. Unlike most, however, Potts has actually served in the military, and knows all about the horrors of war. Her high-profile protests have caught the attention of peace activists (and their foes) throughout Capitol Hill and beyond.

Most importantly, just as she has shattered the male-female dichotomy imposed by the society, she also believes in shattering the liberal-conservative dichotomy propagated by the powered elites, and returning power to the everyday people.

This is one activist that I will continue to keep track of.
