New York City Mayor de Blasios wife has rejected the results of a public vote calling for a statue of Mother Cabrini (pictured), a Catholic saint, and instead opted to honor other women, including two drag queens.
Chirlane McCray, the mayors wife, launched a She Built NYC program and invited the public to vote on the names of women they want the city to recognize with a statue. Mother Cabrini got more votes than any other woman (219), yet McCrays panel rejected the publics choice.
Without explanation, McCray decided on a group of people that were nowhere near the top choices picked by New Yorkers, including the two drag queens who founded the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR).
The She Built NYC project began last summer as an attempt by McCray to balance the male-female mix of statues of eminent New Yorkers. When McCray asked for the publics input, she received an avalanche of more than 1,800 suggestions, with some 320 women nominated.
McCray and former Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen basically ignored the results of the public consultation and chose the seven women they wanted to honor, none of whom was among the top seven women picked in the poll.
Instead, they selected abortion rights activist Dr. Helen Rodriguez Trías and drag queens Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, among others, making clear what their criteria were.
The reaction from New Yorkers has been predictably swift and fierce.

The subjects must be taught what to think and who to respect.
Only when their votes are cast with rightthink will those votes be recognized.
Lets honor women - teehee.
We vote for these women who sacrificed and honored our city and society.
Eww no - I choose this transvestite man who is a perfect example of womanhood. Teehee.

Sounds about right for the modern Democratic Party.
Wait, she thinks the best women are men?
These people absolutely discussed me !!!!
Good thing Kaiser Wilhelm won’t be mayor too much longer. We won’t have to put up with this heinous cow anymore.
More evidence of insanity.
Instead of going with the gut and saying uh, a man CANNOT represent a woman, the insanity taught by these commies has women like this fool catching themselves and deciding, hey, its OK for a guy to be a woman! Well choose this he/she over a real woman!
Dear Comrade McCray (she is an avowed Marxist):
Re you plan to have a statute honoring LGBTXYZ people, I want to suggest another monument because “we support BLTs”.
They are health, tasty, provide employment for workers, and have less letters than whatever far-left alphabet soup causes you support. Would cost less re the lettering on the statue. And we would make sure our tomatoes in the sandwich are really “RED” just for you. In fact, we will serve you a great BLT with BORCHST just to make you feel at home, comradeski.
Next, a statue honoring The Earl of Sandwich, without whom our BLT Movement would never exist.
Chirlane McCray’s fan club thinks the writing on the wall is graffiti.
The “left” is the “left” and there is no way to educate them. They must be defeated and run from positions of power and influence.
In case that’s not obvious, those are
drag queens Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson.
“disgust” FRiend, but we hear ya.
We are disgusted, too.
Were your ears burning? /jk
