Attention seeking, mental health, drugs, body dysmorphia etc you usually get professional help for but as soon as it's sexualised people just have to not only accept it but cheer it, lest you be labelled...
Ignorance isn’t something you should wear like a badge of honor.

Sure. And he got penalised for that. Years later he told a bad joke and lost his job. But Carey doesnt seem to have suffered too much work-wise despite his ongoing shocking treatment of women.

didnt Baz just get a gig on SAS or I’m a celeb or something?

carey would lose his job in an instant if he transgressed again.

I have never watched that show, nor know who goes on it. Redemption via horrible reality TV seems like a bigger punishment than being sacked from a radio job.

Man, sometimes it is like stepping into a time machine 15-20 years into the past when you log on here.

A few case studies of people who are proudly regressive and have lost step with the march of human social progress.
actually social progress has gone backwards in case u havent noticed,has been for decades,in this country anyway :thumbsupv1:

The scandal isn't that Laidley was not dealt with adequately by the courts, but that anyone, with loads of money and backing can achieve a different outcome than someone without those resources.

Legal Aid does a herculean job, but it is not the same as a squad of Q.Cs, accompanying PR, management guidance, coterie references....

If you live in the Inner NorWest of Melbourne it was common knowledge for years that Dani was cross dressing.
As far back as the coaching days at North anyway.

Someone posted about it 10 years ago on here. But it seemed to stay pretty quiet.

And Laidley is being lauded despite wrecking the life of a woman over a long period of time. And then seems to have been treated very kindly by the legal system.

Are we talking about legal penalty or the "good bloke" factor?

Did Laidley legally change his first name through BDM?

If he hasn't then those who are referring to the name 'Dean' (the very person who has had that name for the vast majority of their life so far) are morally sound.

The rest of you that keep trying to force corrections can swing the sjw flag elsewhere.

You seem to be assuming she hasn't changed her name, going by your follow up. Just because you can't get your head around these issues, it doesn't mean that people can't advocate for them. I mean, the dinosaurs did die out and so too will intolerance towards trans people. There will always be a new issue for those slow to the party to wax lyrically about the downfall of civilisation over

They've had the one (first) name that everyone knows for 50+ years.

This isn't about intolerance.

Don't over do it.

Don't over do it.

And everybody knows that the name has now changed. Do we cater for those who don't want to acknowledge the change or do we cater for what it's fair and just?

Don't dismiss it.

Also, nobody but her family and friends have known her for 50 years and used the name so much that it's a genuine habit. Those in the thread are just intolerant for the most part.

Good behaviour bond for something which carries a potential 10 year prison sentence.

Would be interesting to know how often people are treated so leniently.

And that is just the stalking. Doesnt even cover the threats to ram a car in to the woman.
Well you'd be shocked at how lenient our courts and how little urgency the police give these types of things. Women in our country are not taken seriously when it comes to stalking, cyber stalking, domestic abuse etc. And even if they're taken seriously, they're rarely going to see the justice they deserve.

Just three months ago a man in Townsville plead guilty to eight counts of sexual assault and was given a 12 month suspended sentence. There's the Hobart case where a mechanic literally installed software on a victims car, stalked her around the city, entered her home at night, and he was given a 6 month suspended sentence.

Read up on Di McDonald and Max Gardiner if you want a horrific series of events that lasted for years as the police didn't do anything.

What does it matter to you if she changed her name via BDM?

It may take some adjustment to get used to saying the new name, which I think is entirely normal behaviour as patterns are not easily broken. But if they want to be called a certain name then what's wrong with just respecting their wishes.

Good on Laidley for sorting her sh*t out.
My question though, do we have to refer to her past as Dean with the female pronoun, or is it still onto refer to that time as him? Do we refer to her past as Dean, or is it re-written as dani?
