Behold, The World's Oldest Living Tranny!

The nightly news loves stories about trannies. People think they're odd and don't understand them and don't want to talk to them. Just like old people! This story about a 77-year-old transgender woman is going to freak everyone out!

Renee Ramsey lives outside Philadelphia and very well may be the oldest person to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Which is pretty newsworthy on its own, but CBS station KYW has to try to link it to a celebrity trend.

Recently Chastity Bono announced she was having surgery to become a man. A transgender center in Montgomery County is busier than ever.

That is their lede for the story, showing that Cher's daughter son Chaz has already had a huge influence on what people do to their bodies. Renee is the second "aren't trannies crazy!" subject for the station in just three years. In their dispatch on Ramsey (with video), they reference the last story they did, about a military man (!) who had gender reassignment surgery (!!) and is a real-life doctor (!!!).

As for our darling Renee, she also spent 20 years in the military and used her life savings on her surgery (though the report doesn't tell us whether she just got breast implants or went for the whole magilla). She waited until her second wife died to have the proceedure. While she will be completely invisible to society now that she is both transgender and over 65, she finally feels at peace.

"I'm happy good, as happy as any woman could be," said Renee.
