    So much that Id Ladyboy for him if he likes – mmmhhhhhhhhhhuhhhhhhh

  3. This is unfortunate as Joey Barton has been very supportive in the recent past.

  4. IQ the same as his shoe size?

  5. I don’t think he is a bad person, he just make a bad choice that day. Normally he is not like this, everyone makes mistakes.

  6. Its all about publicity….think hes a closet myself afterall he was in prison for a while…may have got to like it…..

  7. I think this makes up for it –

  8. I hope the committee gets through to him and the rest of society that transphobic assumptions, attitudes and behaviour must be taken equally as seriously as homophobic ones. Barton’s evident prejudices about females who happen to be trans are as ridiculous as they are offensive. Imho it would be beneficial for him if he were disabused of these ill-informed transphobic notions he seems to labour under. I hope the committee hearing is NOT going to dodge the transphobic aspect of the abuse that he has given this other player and solely be a telling off for being nasty to other footballers over the internet. There should be more awareness of transphobia and how damaging it often be to transpeople – particularly considering the fact that footballers are often role models amongst children and that transphobic bullying in schools is rife – often leading to tragic consequences.
