Transsexuals should cut it out (repost of censored article by Julie Burchill)


This article is by Julie Burchill, not me (Frank Fisher), and was originally posted here, before the Observer took frit at the ire directed by censorious Lefties including govt minister Lynne Featherstone, and took it down. If Ms Burchill would like me to withdraw her article from my site I shall of course do so; if the Observer would like me to, they can go piss up a rope


The brilliant writer Suzanne Moore and I go back a long way. I first met her when she was a young single mother living in a council flat; she took me out to interview me about my novel Ambition (republished by Corvus Books this spring, since you ask) for dear dead City Limits magazine. “I’ve got an entertaining budget of £12.50!” she said proudly. “Sod that, we’re having lobster and champagne at Frederick’s and I’m paying,” I told her.
