A 65-year-old ex-soldier is demanding a £20,000 sex change operation on the NHS.
Roxanne Yeatman – formerly Doug – is having ‘feminisation’ lessons and now wants surgery as well.
The father-of-four, who was a Gunner in the Royal Artillery, says she was ‘born in the wrong body’.
She’s been learning to walk, talk and act like a woman at the Gender Identity Clinic at Charing Cross Hospital, London, and has been taking female hormones for two years.
‘I need this operation to be who I want to be,’ said Ms Yeatman, from Thamesmead, South East London. ‘I am just living day-to-day waiting for when I can get it done.’ Continue Reading…..
Roxanne who is advising you when it comes to your clothing and hair?
Why do I just get the strange feeling that this is a hoax story put together by the Daily Mail to create anger and outrage in their comments section.
Anyway look out for Roxanne’s interview on This Morning with Philip and Holly. I just know that’s next.

Yesterday the New York City Police Department thought it would be a good idea to ask Twitter users to post pictures of themselves with officers using the hashtag #myNYPD.
There were a few photographs posted (like the one above) showing officers posing happily with citizens.
But then came the ugly face of the police force.
In response to the request other users decided to post photographs of officers engaging in police brutality and misconduct.
NYPD spokeswoman Deputy Chief Kim Y. Royster quickly defended the campaign and said:
“The NYPD is creating new ways to communicate effectively with the community. Twitter provides an open forum for an uncensored exchange and this is an open dialogue good for our city,”.
So does the NYPD now plan on addressing the issue of police brutality and misconduct Kim?
How did ‘New York’s Finest’ fail to not see this coming?
Right now I am guessing that the bright spark in the PR department who came up with this idea is busy looking for a new job.
The Lancashire Telegraph reports that senior radio producer Stuart Hall who works for “DANCE URBAN” radio station Capital Xtra (formally Choice FM), stole a 21-year-old woman’s internet photographs to use on a dating website and then sent out naked pictures of other women pretending to be her.
Stuart Grant used photos of 21-year-old Beckie Livesey to make an online profile.
Miss Livesey, who lives in Willis Road, Feniscowles, was only made aware of Mr Grant’s actions after a computer-savvy IT worker grew suspicious of a ‘girl’ he was talking to online and traced the images back to their original source.
In a statement to the Lancashire Telegraph, Mr Grant has since expressed his shame and apologised ‘unreservedly’ for his actions.
So this is what Capital Xtra’ staff get up to in their spare time.
What a strange and creepy thing to do. What a strange and creepy man.
