French Transsexuals Gain A Small Victory!


How long before the rest of the world follows? Some countries have already taken the lead, but so many still lag behind. Those who adhere to strict gender norms will be displeased with some of the references in this article, but so what?

Yes, it's all a good trend, even if it moves at a glacial pace. But transsexuals are not well served by pictures of semi-naked busty exhibitionists in street parades. Shots of ordinary mumsy trans females buying stuff in supermarkets would persuade many more people that being trans is normal and sane and just an aspect of community life.

@ Lucy

I was wondering who would be the first to mention it. I agree with you, but I think the media is always going to opt for the most provocative images they can find to sell their stories. I wonder how many people were drawn to the article by that picture? It certainly is an attention grabber.
