    Proposed Gender Laws Will Allow You To Choose. 30th Nov 17 at 5:03 PM
    Did you know that the proposed Gender Recognition Act will allow you to choose whether you're a man or woman

    The Fifth Earl of Balfour has suggested one of his daughters could inherit his title by taking advantage of proposed gender laws and declaring she is male.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-42182747

    Of course there has been criticism of such a process, in particular Helen Lewis, deputy editor of The New Statesmen, who expressed concerns regarding men with beards declaring themselves as women and entering ladies toilets to expose themselves

    If I ever go to prison it will be a female on.

    Also I will be less likely to get sent to prison if I am a women, so I best get my
    gender changed right away!

    First in the lifeboats too!

    "Surely the time has come when we can nominate which child we want to be our successor, regardless of their current, past or future gender," Lord Balfour, 68, wrote.
    Surely it is time hereditary titles were abolished Lord Balfour?

    Chester, the lifeboats thing hasn't been true for years - the evacuation plans for passenger ships were changed to avoid breaking up families (which is what the women & children first plans always did).

They have however taken the liberty of installing a shower curtain the girls can change behind if the girls 'don't like it.'

    Target stores in the States are reportedly spending close to $20 million redesigning their bathrooms & changing rooms to be single-stall locking ones, after at least 11 reported incidents (in approx 6 months) of women or children being filmed or harassed by [apparently] transgender males, or in some cases males who claimed to be simply "confused" about their gender status.

    There is also associated police report, so hardly alarmist reporting.

    Seems there's now a 'gender' for every letter of the alphabet. The Liberals are barmy.
