Nature certainly can surprise us. Cock a doodle doooo!!

We had a discussion at work yesterday about trans as we do get an occasional referral and we make a distinction between the genuine born in the wrong body and want to trans and the, always men for some reason, bearded blokes in frocks or not who self identify but are overly keen to access female only areas for some reason. I shan't say any more regarding the latter.
I know a couple of acquaintances who transitioned and are now very happy in themselves and more power to them including a friend who surprised us all when she did this in her sixties. A lifetime of hiding away is very sad.

One lady I know - mum of 3 teenage girls - said to me a while ago that from what she heard from her daughters and their friends, the peer-pressured choice for adolescents these days seems to be between self-harming and being trans, rather than the 'smoking or not smoking' that she knew at the same age, and the 'drugs or no drugs' of a few years ago.

What the hell has happened to our world?

I've got a carpenter repairing an octagonal summer house which had gone rotten. It's been a long and complicated puzzle for him.

Spot on BW.

We get them when they hit eighteen but with the current lot of early teens they might just come through when I have retired fully. CAMH's will be swamped for now and the next several years.
