Really learning a lot at the NASUWT LGBTICC #lgbticc21 It makes me realise how far we have come, but also how far we have to go too. Particularly with respect to Intersex and Transgender rights. In order to do that, we need to challenge ALL inequality as any division divides us all.
Next Thursday and Friday is the TUC LGBT+ conference. l was recently elected on to the National LGBT Advisory Panel for my Trade Union and will not only be attending, I will be speaking! Indeed, I will be, “Demanding progressive change to the Gender Recognition Act!”
l read a question the other day about men who wear women’s knickers. I cannot remember the exact wording but there was something about the fact that men’s and women’s knickers are shaped differently as men and woman’s bodies are shaped differently in that region and therefore, as the underwear is not on display, surely,Continue reading “Knickers”
One of the worst things about being a woman stuck in a man’s body is the awful choice there is at the moment in men’s clothes! The colours are drab, browns and dark greens; the cuts are loose and shapeless. There is just no excitement at all! And don’t get me started on shoes becauseContinue reading “How to wear women’s clothes stealthily”
If you are closeted, what do you do about your hair? Most men don’t notice, but there are enormous differences between men’s hair and women’s hair, though admittedly, for the trendy young, those differences are smaller than they used to be. But I am perceived to be neither trendy, nor young! I do, as IContinue reading “Hair”
About 2 months ago, in the bath, my wife discussed my funeral – a bit premature you may think as I am only just 56. But her point was this: if I died, at my funeral she would have to announce that I was being buried in my best frock! To be honest, I don’tContinue reading “Coming Out”
I last posted on 3rd May 2020. I had a Yew Year’s Resolution last year that I was going to post more often, if not every day and obviously I have failed. A lot has happened since then, not least on that day. I had to roll back on a lot in order to preserveContinue reading “Charlotte is back!”
I first blogged this in February 2014. I am reblogging it now as I want everything about me in the same place. I realise that my Tumblr account has become almost exclusively “likes” and “rebloggs.” This actually follows on from my first post on here which you can find here: https://charlotte-j.co.uk/2014/04/07/2/ Seven years ago myContinue reading “On Fancying Men”
This is a powerful and wonderful article by Zoe Williams. In it she explains why she has been wrong in not writing about trans issues for 10 years and argues that the feminist, climate and trans campaigns should be about acceptance and inclusivity.
I wrote this to my wife by email when she opened a letter to me, from the hospital, inviting me to Speech and Language Therapy. I was 600 miles away at the time….. My lovely Wife I have been the happiest I have ever been over the last few months. I have loved Christmas thisContinue reading “A Letter to my Wife”
