TransAge – the tale of Chrissie & Nigel
Chrissie wants to get her passport changed to say she was born in 1993. Why shouldn’t she? She identifies and presents as someone much younger than herself. Why should society’s narrow view of what a 25 year old should be restrict her like this? People’s refusal to tell Chrissie that she actually really is 25 really upsets her and she has become depressed recently. She knows how she feels. Chrissie says that society’s refusal to let her change her age is oppressive and cruel.

Where did you get that photo of me?
I’m more concerned about people gaining access to children with some of this codswollop. Why shouldn’t a 45 yr old man go on a scout trip and engage in horseplay? Currently there is a man is his 40’s attending a school demanding to be accepted as a baby and demanding that adults at the school (only women) change his nappy.
