The Fools who would be king for a day.

Many years ago, back in the days of human sacrifice, people would appease various deities and providence by sacrificing other people to them. One interesting "reward" for whoever was unfortunate (or fortunate depending on your point of view) to end up being sacrificed was to spend a period of time being treated like royalty by being given all the privileges that those planning to do the sacrifice could give.

There is a new "religion" if you like and it is called sexology, and those it sacrifices are people this new religion had previously tormented. These sacrificial lambs for the slaughter suddenly find themselves being given the power to lord it over everyone the sexologists don't like. And these "Kings for a day" do seem to take some very interesting forms. One is a "Republican Muslim she-male prostitute" who is also an expert of quantum mechanics and has the right to decide who gets bullied by those in charge of this new religion. Another is an anesthetist who was subject to dismissal from a clinic after doing genital examinations of a patient under anesthetic. Now she describes herself as an "Autogynephilic Transsexual". There is another who claims to be "the genuine article" when it comes to being intersexed, but the truth is, while this person may have an intersex condition, this is not why the new religion accepts them, they are accepted because their "narrative" (social history) fits with the dogma of this new religion.
