    Lewis Hamilton apologises for 'boys don't wear dresses' remark - BBC News


    Absolutely scandalous....................what was he thinking?

    I'd give my opinion online but I don't want to be ostracised by a load of people I don't know and will never meet.

    I guess unlike Hamilton, and many many others who put things online, I'm not an attention seeking media whore with a narcisistic personality disorder.

    Woe is me.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Sorry, does that mean you wear dresses or not?

    Uncle Lewis, look what you've started.

    Yes but there is a problem - i am pretty sure when i was young I did play with dolls but I never wanted to be or thought I should be anything other than male.

    Now when a 'male' child plays with a doll the 'rents are often falling over themselves to get the child gender re-assignment - because it's trendy isn't it.

    https://www.theglobeandmail.com/glob...ticle16897043/

    and that is quite an old one.

    It is important to remember that really until puberty hits 'gender' does not really play a major factor and then during your adolescent years things can be very confusing as you make the transition into 'adulthood' - and i do not really think you can say - I feel I am the wrong gender until you have lived in that gender as and adult for a 'length of time'

    What about the children who said they were transgender – and then changed their minds? | The Independent

    I recall years ago doing a 'sausage sizzle' at scouts - one of the kids had 'vegetarian' sausages (it was a while back because it was a new thing) me and a few of the scouts laughed because it was clearly not the kids choice but the parents - one of the right on parents told us we wrong and the 8 year old child had made a 'conscious and mature' choice - the 8 year old told us it was because his mum and dad do not let him eat meat.

    It is one thing being given a choice - it is completely another being coerced and encouraged to try different things for reasons you do not understand and for reasons which are rarely in your best interests.

    Meanwhile, Imraan Sathar of discrimination support charity Stay Brave UK, called for the driver to be stripped of his MBE.
    Well quite right. This is a total outrage, possibly the most outrageous thing that's happened this year. I'm outraged. And offended.
