Police Reportedly Ask Transgender Topless Sunbathers To Put Tops Back On

From MyFoxDC:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Delaware – Rehoboth Beach lifeguards requested police assistance late Saturday afternoon for a situation involving a group of transgender men who had their breasts exposed according to a report by the Rehoboth Weekend Update.

The on-line publication reported that the incident happened by the surf near Queen Street around 4:45 p.m.

The report says that a lifeguard reported having an ‘odd problem’ involving ‘girls’ on the beach with their tops off.

Over the radio the lifeguard reported that the male individuals claimed to be transgender and claimed they did not have to wear tops.

The incident was reported to a passing police officer.

The beach patrol and police officer insisted the group was not in compliance with city ordinances.

According to the Update, a police source told them at least two of the men appeared to have breast implants.

The incident was resolved when the beach patrol and several police officers convinced the men to cover their breasts.

Barney Frank calls for probe of Gaza raid

From the Boston Herald:

U.S. Rep. Barney Frank had harsh words yesterday for the Israeli Navy after a bloody raid on a pro-Palestinian flotilla outside of Gaza, describing nine activists killed in the conflict as “innocent” and calling for an independent inquiry into the showdown.

Frank, in a wide-ranging interview with the Herald, went on to say that “as a Jew,” Israeli treatment of Arabs around some of the West Bank settlements “makes me ashamed that there would be Jews that would engage in that kind of victimization of a minority.”

The comments rankled some local Jewish leaders, who said activists on the largest vessel of the six-ship-flotilla sparked the deadly confrontation by attacking Israeli Naval commandos as they rappelled onto the ship.
