Readers’ comments: What passports are for


In response to Caroline ffiske: Gender is the passport to socialising – and safety,

Reuben Wade wrote:

Elan-Cane wishes that the function of a passport should be to furnish her with an official document that affirms her idea of what her sex is, regardless of the physical facts. But that is not the function of a passport. The purpose of a passport is to identify the holder as surely as a document is able to do so. Biological sex is a reliable identifying characteristic. A passport-holder whose identity says ‘male’ can soon be inspected to see whether he is indeed male or not and similarly for a female. In cases where a passport-holder has mutilated themselves in order to mimic the physical properties of the opposite sex, the passport should describe whatever it is that an inspection is likely to discover, not in an attempt to humiliate or embarrass the holder, but for the purposes of verifying that he is who he claims to be. For example, a man whose appearance is convincingly feminine could be recorded as ‘biologically male with female appearance’.

Surely a gender neutral passport would only be of use if internationally recognised. Good luck with that one outside the wokesphere, Christie.

Joyless is what the modern Left wants. On the mercifully rare occasions I have any involvement with modern Lefties either online or face to face, the one unifying theme is a complete absence of humour. I really do have to wonder if any of them ever take any pleasure in anything or if their serious, miserable faces ever crack a smile. I think they actively enjoy being miserable. They put years on me.

Earlier this week I had to endure a presentation in work about ‘microbehaviours’ and how they impact on us all. It is clear that the proponents of this tripe want us to live in a sterile, joyless world where no one is allowed to be a bit quirky or have a joke, still less be a bit flirty. It just makes me want to despair. And I can only see it getting worse because a lot of younger people seem completely under its influence.
