But I would expect that they'd rightly find 'chick with dicks' or 'sluts with nuts' offensive. And 'men who talk too much' tend to be politicians around here, and in Westminster.

I don't know any, and if I've any choice in the matter it'll stay that way, unless of course my mate bill rocks up one day and tells me he wants to be Jill, I might make an exception for an existing friendship.

Funny, but that's pretty much what conservapedia says about wikipedia.

I am not sure if anybody is still interested in the topic but this is to say the least quite interesting, trigger warning as best watched on a full stomach.

That I find very easy to get my mind around and have no problem with it, I even have respect for them because it must take a great deal of courage to go through with it. The ones who preserve their physical gender but dress as the other leave me a bit puzzled - except of course for those who are uncertain whether they want re-assignment so try it out for a while first before committing to surgery.

Serious question, not being sarcy, clever or anything other than curious - I think you're talking about men wearing what you perceive to be female clothes. Why is that a puzzle? Eddie Izzard for example is heterosexual but he like to wear makeup, dresses and high heels. He feels comfortable doing so. He also wears 'male' clothes. Why does this puzzle you? I sometimes wear dresses and sometimes pants, is this puzzling also?

Noel Fielding as well comes to mind. He wears heels, makeup and gender ambiguous clothing. However he identifies as a heterosexual male. Not puzzling at all to me - he simply wears what's comfortable for him.
