On any ordinary day, this bit of maiden-aunt pearl-clutching from the Telegraph would win. On any ordinary day, this
bit of sneery "Ooh, women are doing something that men are allowed to do, not sure if they should be allowed to, for some reason or other" picture headline would clinch it. On any ordinary day, that kind of "Do we really want gells to be being unladylike?" toss would scoop the prize with no need for a steward's inquiry. But this is Friday, and Friday means it's Littlejohn day in the Mail. So we get this:
If you thought WPCs in burqas were ridiculous (I didn't, thanks for asking) then how about the Transgendered Police Association? How about it! Eh! Eh! Well, since you want to know with the kind of witless rhetorical question the Telegraph tried up there ^^^ then I'll tell you. I imagine it's an association for police officers who are transgender, and as such is a perfectly legitimate body. I imagine it brings together police officers who have to put up with the kind of sanctimonious carping from smellyfaced cunts like Richard Littlejohn day in, day out; people who, because of their legitimate lifestyles are ridiculed and held up as some kind of freak by utter bastards like the foul stinky scumbag tosspieces who work for the Daily Mail. Just for being who they are. Oh yes, Littleman, let's all gather round and have a fucking right old laugh about PC gone mad - hey, see what I did there? - in providing support and assistance to people who choose to do one of the toughest jobs in the country, and do so despite sexual proclivities* that idiots like you, you fucking gobshited pig-eyed prick squatting in judgement over everyone's lives in Britain from your gold-plated Florida mansion, regard as being worthy of hysterical abuse and being singled out as somehow deserving of mockery. Well actually, WPCs in burqas is fine by me, if they want to wear them.** If people want to be police officers then I couldn't give a shit what religion or sexual orientation they are - and surely it's better to have a police force that reflects the community it serves. Isn't it?
Or shall we just have a titter about the transgendered police association, because we have an emotional age of nine?***
* Or simply the way people are born into the wrong gender. See comments, and apologies for giving the wrong impression.
** The article refers to a story the other day in which non-Muslim women police officers wore Muslim dress in order to get a better understanding of the issues affecting Muslim women. A simple and understandable bit of empathy which Littlejohn doesn't compute either.
*** With apologies to nine-year-old readers, who are probably more insightful than Littlejohn
