The whole post makes no sense to me.. With all the he and she and his and her etc it's not at all clear who said and did what.

You're not allowed to use that any more - the Ts don't like it. LGBP, or even better PPPP, is the way to go.

Context may help- it is usually the so called 'normal' person who calls the person perceived as being 'different'- something unpleasant. So yes, the partner of the EF member called my transsexual friend (she was not a friend at the time, but I knew of her) a dirty pervert or words to that effect.


Later edit. BTW, I really do not think that the EF member's partner meant to be unkind, but was truly freaked out. Which again points out that if you do have contact with people who are 'different' and in this case a transsexual who had a fairly late conversion and is therefore not totally 'convincing' physically as a woman, despite the dress, long hair and discreet make-up- you are more likely to be 'freaked out' and react negatively.

Indeed.
I actually thought the EF member ( whom it wasn't clear was actually male) had spoken to the partner of your friend so it was very confusing. In fact you're saying that your friend spoke to the partner of the EF member.

I think it won't be too long at this rate before we have to use "non-cis".

That's it- I agree it was not clear. She spoke to her in a very friendly manner- because she had heard her speak English and speaks English quite well, and thought she was part of the International group that was there- but as she does look a bit 'different' (no heavy make-up or tarty clothes, but as she had the reversal in her 40s- does still have male features to some extend) - was called a sad or dirty, pervert. And no wonder she was upset at that- which I only found out later.

Nope - still doesn't make sense - especially as you are bidding for German-esque length sentences.

You are using "she" too often and there is no clarity who heard who speak English.

OP, and everyone else for that matter, should watch this. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05qkzt2

louis theroux - transgender kids

school kids are not too young to think and talk about complicated human stuff.
life and people are complicated, yet simple in their need for love and acceptance. important to learn that, no matter what age.

With BM's quote above- I think it was quite clear (even though my initial post wasn't)

Here is a great Al Murray joke, for those who like that sort of thing, and very relevant to this bacon sarny thread:

Pigs are the proof there is a God. They consist of bacon, pork chops and ham, which are all delicious, and as a punishment for not being Catholic, Muslims and Jews aren't allowed to eat them.

Again. "Pub Landlord" is a character. He's a caricature held up for ridicule. Not a real person.

Re: Transexual as a coach

To the OP, you're right you shouldn't be forced to teach/explain anything to your kids until you feel it is right for them.

Unfortunately society does not that anymore and you will do as society says and when it says otherwise you will be branded a......... something or other.

So best thing to do, save yourself a lot of hassle and do exactly what you think is right without asking or answering to anyone, it is your child, it is your responsibility.

Certainly don't come on to a forum that has more self righteousness than the Righteous Brothers would have if they were Siamese twins and expect to get a decent answer.

This is one of those threads where Admin should man up and close it down to stop the embarrassment continuing.

Apologies, I hadn't heard about the new rules only allowing responses that agreed with the OP and forbid any other discussion.

When I post something stupid, I accept the consequences (which, to be fair, the OP seems to have done) without sulking about it or asking for people to be prevented from having their say.

Perhaps you might be better with an altogether fluffier forum.
