  1. What a load of nonsense from the Expresss. There’s an enormous difference between “just one attack on a transsexual” being recorded and the levels of unrecorded harassment, attacks and fear thereof, and if the police are to ever have a proper grasp on what things are really like for trans people they need to be seen to be understanding of the issues involved. Good on Merseyside police for making it happen.

    In order to establish a beneficial Diverse Educational Forum, there needs be at least, 3 thoroughly qualified representatives, from the M-F, F-M, Intersexed, professional community.Including, a qualified, Board Certified Psychiatrist, whose had significant training, and a prestigious track record, treating Gender Anomalies, should be considered as a significant contributor, to this group discussion.~Mekah Gordon, Ph.D., L.

    The fact that many transexual people are afraid of police because of negative experiances couldn’t possibly have anything to do with only having one person issue a complaint to them, could it?Until transexed people feel they are welcome, will be treated with respect and be listened to rather then sneared at and told it’s our own fault because of how we dress or because we made the “choice”, you won’t have people wanting to put themselves in a situation of facing further harrassment.Rosalyn
