What Not to Ask a Transsexual

Wonderful article by Juliet Jacques from the Guardian about one thing pregnant women and trans* folk have in common:

‘I wasn’t sure why such people thought it my duty to answer intimate questions – particularly about my genitalia or my sexuality – that they’d never dream of asking anyone else. Seeing my irritation at being asked something inappropriate, their justification was often that they were “curious”. The idea that their curiosity might affect someone other than themselves often came as a revelation.’
