Jacksonville City Councilman Don Redman insists that comments he made at a Tuesday evening committee meeting were simply all in good fun.

During the meeting, which was held to discuss pending legislation to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation in Jacksonville, Redman asked Lawyer Carrinton Mead, a transsexual, “Do you consider yourself male or female?”  Redman expressed dismay when other council members, in his words “acted all mad” about his comments, which he claimed were made in jest.

In an effort to calm the situation, Redman explained “That’s a joke, I say, that’s a joke, son.  You missed it, boy.  I made a funny, son, and you’re not laughin’!”  In response, Councilman Robin Lumb, who was visibly unamused by Redmond’s witticisms, simply stated “What a revoltin’ development this is”.  Regarding continuing opposition to anti-discrimination legislation, the general consensus among Jacksonville’s LGBT community is that they should have taken a left turn at Albuquerque.
