It's a well-recognised problem. Sometimes they can be quite nasty and aggressive. Mother really does teach them to be cats and that's difficult to replicate no matter how much work and expertise you put into it.

One of the things that needs dismantling, and fast, is Stonewall’s ever increasing transgender umbrella. This is a cynical exercise in control and othering if ever I saw one and to pick apart what has gone wrong with the movement begs closer inspection.

Imagine being a group who holds all the structural power identifying into an oppressed group and somehow managing to get them to shift over for you... it’s something women never manage. Maybe think about that.

They don't care about a GRC. They're working towards a situation where they can simply claim the status they want, then have anyone who challenges them (e.g. by asking if they have a GRC) arrested for a hate crime.

It's arguable the existing law goes further than necessary. It was brought in because they didn't want to agree to same-sex marriage. So trans people cld legally change their sex to marry someone of the (now) opposite sex. Now anyone can marry anyone, why falsify legal documents?

But going that road should really be the last resort once every possible support to help the person be comfortable in their own body has completely failed. To celebrate a kid who likes the "wrong" toys as "brave and stunning" and blithely push them down that path is madness.

Life as a trans person is not a bed of roses. People look at you funny, it's inevitable. You're constantly in a sweat about other people's perceptions. If you take hormones your body is going to be damaged. That goes double if you have surgery. It may be the best thing for some.

It's not easy bringing up an orphaned kitten to be a good cat.

Sweet. I hope he doesn't grow up too maladjusted if he doesn't have an actual cat mother to learn from though.

1/The number of transsexuals globally is remarkably consistent and has been for decades since diagnosis began in the 50s. In the UK and US for instance it is about 0.03% population. Doctors told parliament in 2004 that the GRA would cover about 5000 people. 4910 are by 2018.

Autogynaephiles. And ROGD girls. And kids whose mothers have Munchausen by proxy.

I'm a vet and one evening in 1978 a tabby cat was brought to me to be put down. He was the best cat in the world and he won best non-pedigree at the Supreme Show in Birmingham in 1989 when he was about 14 years old. He died in 1992.

"unequivocally support women's rights" yet refused to meet with a female constituent concerned about her rights and likewise says he'd sooner meet with an Islamophobe. Scottish Greens are a joke. A very bad joke.

I see from the Wiki article about the series that this may be the author's intention, in fact. And the next book has been postponed till next year, boo.

I've recently read a three-book series where everyone is called he or she depending on the gender identity they present. It's utterly nonsensical & unworkable, but then the 1st person narrator is barking mad & the series isn't finished so I half wonder if it's just his insanity.
