what was trollish about the comment?

yes I did read it. And no it is not boredom. our potential guest needs to be aware that the organs of law enforcement may not be switched on to the issues surrounding trans-sexuals and people undergoing gender re-assignment.

...i think the issue of the police's action is not limited to trans gender treatment in Cyprus, noteworthy is that the individual was placed alone in a cell, as opposed to, with other inmates. it is not an institutionalised problem, as it is in the north, where a (criminal) charge of homosexuality can be placed, and so within this context, misinformation. the person in question was not arrested for being gay.

stud, did you actually read the article and the comments; sounds like boredom on your part, or just trolling.



He has a problem understanding what he reads. :wink:

Too right trans people should be placed in prisons according to their birth-sex if they still retain their full-functioning reproductive organs (although that little Y chromosome could prove an aggressive nuisance). I don't know any countries that would do otherwise. Could build specific prisons for them though .... :P

I think a lot depends on whether the person is simply a cross dresser (and so I understand they are not necessarily gay or even bi) or undergoing gender reassignment treatment and what stage it has reached, where I do however tend to agree with GiG that someone with the "meat and two veg" should probably be in the male cells. However whether or not the Y Chromosome is a problem seems to be debatable

Does having a Y chromosome make someone a man? | Intersex Society of North America
http://www.isna.org/faq/y_chromosome which unless I have misread it suggests that holding the Y Chromosome in one's make up might not be such an indicator of maleness it was thought to be........

How should one treat someone GRS now without the hanging wedding tackle?

Darling my advise as a person who has many friends who are transexual do not go to Cyprus. Go to Athens.
Cyprus is very peasant mentality. Greek men are not comfortable not very sohisticated. Its true - sorry I want you have a nice time. Tell me somthing

There is no correlation between sophistication and transsexuals. :lol:
