Letters To The Guardian: Still Okay For Guardian Readers To Think Trans People Are A Joke

My American friend's family specialise in embarrassing other family members when they meet them at airports (Many happy returns, Weekend, 24 December). My favourite was when one of the brothers was met by his family holding up a big sign reading "We loved you as Victoria – we'll love you as Victor".

I'm appalled The Guardian ran this as a "funny".

  1. Better off working towards equality and respect for trans people, rather than worrying about some idiots' idea of a joke - even The Guardian, imo.
    As long as my rights are equal and no fucker stops me trying to live my life how I want because of my sexuality, they can make all the jokes about me/being gay they like - they're still cunts, though, even only for the fact the joke is shit and unimaginative... :)
