I have to admit when I saw the headline for this story I thought it was a joke. And because the website that originally reported it, The Daily Xtra sounded like a spoof news site I’m still not sure about either but The Daily Xtra proclaims itself the news site for all things gay and lesbian in Canada. And as I picked it up in a respectable UK newspaper I assume someone has done some fact checking along the way.

The point here is the very same people who will rejoice that ‘we have come for far’ people like this self centred cupid stunt can have his sick, escapist fantasies pandered to at the expense of taxpayers are the ones who would be screaming in outrage if some religious fundamentalist said we must all believe God created the world a few thousand years ago.
This person should clearly be banged up in a secure hospital, not so much for the safety of himself and others, and to spare his poor kids further embarrassment. How are they going to feel knowing their six fot two Dad is parading around dressed as Little Orphan Annie. But he obviously does not give a flying fuck about how his kids or his ex – wife feel.
The same, I think, is true of many of these transgender bell ends, they are selfish, shallow, uncaring and self pitying. I thought of ending with fuck ’em, but looking at this guy, perhaps not …
