No Norman , people didn't tend to be so forthcoming about issues of gender and sexuality in 1949 because a lot of stuff was illegal and people feared social ostracism and having the shit kicked out of them.

We did have an Employers Liability claim once come in at work for a guy who banged his head on a pipe. One of the items he included as results of the incident on the statement of claim were that the bump on the head turned him gay.

I suspect that I will get criticised for saying this but, if I did have gender/sexuality issues I would be very quiet about it and keep it to myself. People deal with things in different ways, not everyone opens up about things, and I don't. I tend to keep my problems to myself and internalise things, I would never go and see a counseller about anything.

Anyhow, that's just me.

Former Conservative Party chair Lord Tebbit claims air pollution is making people transgender

Former Chairman of the Conservative Party Lord Tebbit had claimed air pollution is making people transgender – a week after the Prime Minister told the PinkNews Awards that “being trans is not an illness”.

Lord Tebbit, a former Thatcher minister and Chairman of the Conservative Party, is a long-running opponent of LGBT rights.

The 86-year-old peer spoke out this week in an article in the Telegraph.

He claimed transgender people were a new phenomenon, writing: “I cannot recollect any such individuals among my fellow pupils at school, nor in my intake for National Service in 1949, nor so far as I know among my children’s generation at school.”

He added: “I think it is time we had some research into the extent of the phenomenon both in time and geographical reach.

“I do not know if the populations of third world or of urban or of rural societies are more or less affected.

“Nor is it known if it is only our species or others living alongside us which have been affected, but that knowledge might point to a trigger such as pollution, which is the belief of some scientists. ”http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2017/10/24/fo ... ansgender/
Thought he was dead.

She has actually clarified what a ‘hate crime ambassador’ is, and it’s not what people automatically picture from a brextremist. It’s actually ‘a good thing’
