This is hard-working America at its absolute best

94-year-old Loraine Mauer is still serving customers

This is hard-working, community-spirited America at its absolute best.
For 44 years Loraine Maurer, a mother of four, has been working behind the counter at McDonalds stores in Evansville, in the heartland state of Indiana. And she started working there when she was 50, after her husband was forced to retire. Now 94, Loraine is still working at McDonalds.
A local celebrity, she is always there for her customers with a cheery smile.
“If you don’t like your job, it’s a job, but I love it,” she told People magazine. “The people, the clientele, that’s why I stuck with it ... I know what goes on with them, I know some of their children. Some ask me to say a prayer and I do. I know their lives.”
What’s her favourite meal at McDonalds?
“The fish sandwich,” she says. “But now I work mornings and there isn’t anything I don’t like. This morning I had a blueberry muffin, two fried eggs and a cup of coffee.”

The hoo-ha over transgender rights has overshadowed the Emperor-has-no-clothes question of whether any of us can really be Sex A stuck in Body B. In this issue paediatrician Michelle Cretella reviews a new anthology by women who are pushing back against the orthodox view on Twitter, universities and the media.
Although many of the contributors are radical lesbians, the editor a priestess of the Greek goddess Diana, and Dr Cretella a pro-life conservative, she found that they had much in common. “I was deeply impressed by the radical feminist conviction that we are sacred embodied sexual beings, and by the great reverence for a woman's life-bearing power which flows from the latter,” she writes.
Germaine Greer, the well-known Australian feminist, sums up the feeling of many of the contributors in her introduction: “Men who adopt femininity may believe that they are achieving femaleness, but femaleness is a tougher destiny than they can know or guess ... Femininity is a de-sexed masquerade. Men can be as good at it as women, but that does not make them women.”
This book represents an long-overdue development in the debate on transgender issues.
