    With regard to personal vices, Jack and the Beanstalk, and others, I do not suppose that there is any realistic way to approach a ruling that would force all teachers/educationalists into any kind of higher plain than any other part of society. The most important issue is that the children/young people in their care are given best examples and shown best choices, and that there is no general assumption that any kind of drug dependentcy, is encouraged or considered worthwhile as a life choice. This must, of course, include not only the current range of illegal drugs, but also alcohol, one of the most potent, most destructive, most easy to obtain drugs of our time, in most parts of the world. Education, life skills, would-be best taught, if up to date information about the use, abuse and effects of all of these drugs was provided, along with the opportunity for young people to discuss all aspects of the their effects, from economic to health, on societies around the world.

    Outrider..perhaps different kinds of qualifications/specifications can be arrived at. As in boxing from featheweight to heavyweight etc..or something similar. The divisions in global sport, based entirely on kinds of genitals' or underpants, seems trivial and irrelevant to me. The world might celebrate more non reproductive non childbearing relationships, given the global problems of population growth, at the moment. ?

    From many of the forum posts on this topic, it's easy to see the kind of harassment, ridicule, and open abuse of different kinds, might be offered to any transgender person. Stress, coercion that could cause an employee to be obliged to accept abuse of this kind, or feel their employment is threatened, may well be considered a prosecutable offence. It is possible, but unlikely, that the management staff of this company, were unaware of the situation in which they were placing their employee. that information may come up when the case is examined. I don't see any reason for explanations to be provided by the employee. If they had wanted to respect and care for this person. they might have found a way to calm the situation, with no pressure whatever, by allowing the use as requested, and offering staff a low key justification, of their own. As societies change and become more accepting of the breakdown of gender role playing, the provision of more nongender divided facilities, will be required, but in the meantime, more situations like this one, are likely to become common. The obvious solution is to provide facilities that are not sex divided, or, '3 gender'. Laws would be needed, to protect the employees of any companies, that did not wish to accommodate transgender staff. This reported incident, could be a test case.

    If an employee seeks changed work conditions, is a company under any legal obligation to comp!y, if there was no agreement in the original contract to-do so? .Whateve issue is at stake, the same conditions might be applied. Of course it is true that the employee may feel seriously abused in being required to discuss what she feels is not to be made public. No coercion should be applied in such a sensitive matter. The employee joined the company when it had no transgender facilities it must be entirely at the companies discretion, whether they supply different facilities, now,or not.

    Not too late yet.... "The referendum result is not legally binding - Parliament still has to pass the laws that will get Britain out of the 28 nation bloc, starting with the repeal of the 1972 European Communities Act. eferendum result is not legally binding - Parliament still has to pass the laws that will get Britain out of the 28 nation bloc, starting with the repeal of the 1972 European Communities Act.eferendum result is not legally binding - Parliament still has to pass the laws that will get Britain out of the 28 nation bloc, starting with the repeal of the 1972 European Communities Act. The withdrawal agreement also has to be ratified by Parliament - the House of Lords and/or the Commons could vote against ratification, according to a House of Commons library report. In practice, Conservative MPs who voted to remain in the EU would be whipped to vote with the government. Any who defied the whip would have to face the wrath of voters at the next general election. One scenario that could see the referendum result overturned, is if MPs forced a general election and a party campaigned on a promise to keep Britain in the EU, got elected and then claimed that the election mandate topped the referendum one.e referendum result is not legally binding - Parliament still has to pass the laws that will get Britain out of the 28 nation bloc, starting with the repeal of the 1972 European Communities Act.

    Unbelievably idiotic!! Have you not noticed, yet, the changes taking place, worldwide? Have you not seen how the rigid divide between masculine and feminine, in every aspect of life, has been breaking down for decades, and very logically so? Can it really be, that you recognise those changes, only by signs on lavatory doors?! Finding yourself obliged to make that astonishing decision 'Oh! Am I a Man? or am I a Woman? by deciding which lavatory to use, must surely shine a little light on how ridiculous is this lack of awareness of growing gender equality.

    Astonishing ...still there are people who feel quite sure that all women must be responsible for male lack of control! Listen, you will not be able to demand protection on the basis of "female temptress" for very long now. YOU, if you have a male organ, and you alone, are responsible for all actions taken as a result of your own desires and lusts. No one else in the world may be held accountable. No accusations of Evil Eve...will get you off the hook. Got it?

    “They’re drones! Where is their queen?!” “Even their hair is all the same….” “The lack of individuality is painful.” “Are they newly hired Matrix agents?”

    Typical western kind of comments, really...whoever made them. As if originality of thought and independence could be witnessed via such trivial details, as clothing and face expression. The ability to strictly conform, is much more easily understood, learned and demonstrated, by those who have free and open minds. So many people in the West struggle to look special, to wow the public by appearances. Appearance is nothing. Independence is a state of mind, not the place on your body, decorated and arranged to please, by approved suppliers.

    I made a feeble and unsuccessful attempt to die, deliberately, a few decades ago, but life has gradually taught me that the human spirit? (I can't think of a better name for it)..is capable of rising to unimagined heights of strength and endurance, and enjoying even the very worst of it. Isn't it time for humans to recognise death and suffering, as, not only inevitable, but an essential, vital part of real life, itself, and share the very saddest parts of it? Or must we all be bound to attempt the impossible, and often tedious ..tripping to already preferred human goals, often to find disappointment, of beauty, fame, wealth, and a million insubstantial and often quite silly! ?dreams? Sharing the very WORST of human experiences, with one another, including those currently viewed as intolerable ...could become the greatest delight of our lifetime? Japan seems to be top at sharing so many things, and yet has its blocks against others, like old age..wrinkles, a lack of physical beauty, any deformity, poverty or handicap... though I have seen some group efforts that are truly inspiring and very beautiful.. Time for learning more, especially with new technology ..how to help, how to be more supportive, so that no one need feel so alone as to hope to take their own life, feeling hopeless, useless, a burden, or abandoned? Every life is precious. Those managing any kind of "ending" ..can teach, and give, so much!?

    Anyone hoping to make the case that West has a mountain of hideous war crimes, genocides etc on its hands, is up against the obvious brick wall, that generally speaking, most people like to feel justified and 'right', in their actions. Being obliged to rethink themselves into new positions as monstrous as those categorised as 'evil' etc, will not meet with easy success. The need to 'belong' is primal and a survival instinct . Facing judgement of the kind that makes apologies for genocide etc. necessary, in hindsight, can be a face to face meeting with seeming annihilation. Be sorry. Apologise. No matter how terrible the crime.

    At night...high visibility clothing is really essential...I sometimes see walkers and bikers on country lanes..late at night...with DARK clothes..they are barely visible...and put themselves in real danger. I'm getting dog lights...and a hi-vis jacket...for my dog...for evening walks..

    Having an identity tag..of 'Muslim' ....says no more about any individual...than 'Christian',etc.... How many of you..questioned and compared religious differences and moralities..as you grew up in one culture or another...making NO choices at all about your religion or ideology?. You just accepted...whatever you were obliged to accept..as the way of life. Muslims, Christians, Bhuddists, atheists...Of course there are people who think and change...but how intelligent is it...to expect refugées arriving ...from war zones..to do so pronto? There's no rational judgements to be made about 'Muslims', and to do so ..shrieks of bigotry. What CAN be discussed..is religious doctrine and its interpretation...and how big differences might affect societies. What clashes are there...between Islam...and Xtianity, Buddhism etc.? Any attempt to install some aspects of Sharia law..in Europe/USA...are guaranteed to cause problems. Sharia law clashes strongly with a number of already established rights and freedoms. Much more serious issues than wearing headscarves or not. A current issue in France...concerns 'halal' meat...with vets as well as the general public..protesting the cruelty of Sharia obligatory, ritual slaughter..while supermarkets cash in... It's important to discuss differences, and refuse to take any steps backwards. There are already academic and in depth examinations and debates...about bringing Islam into 21st century..from Muslims themselves..research http://www.irshadmanji.com/irshad.

    Astonishing amount of holier/wiser/just plain better-than-thou nonsense here...I have never played patchinko...but I have looked in...to see what goes on...and for the most part...I guess that there's very little real interest in thinking about winning a lot of money...as a sense of joining in some kind of speechless camaraderie...same kind of appeal in my opinion...as those small size travelling fairs....in Europe. Loud music...flashing bright lights...may all be a way for old people to manage soliude, or a too solitary life.

    Many people who have survived bullying ...or who are in a bullying environment..simply..do not recognise, or acknowledge that experience for what it is. Bullying..in all its disguises,is abuse. Criticism that is constructive and results in 'improvement'...is not the same process. It is based in respect and love/care for the 'pupil'..or whoever is being 'critiqued'...and NOT.in any attempt to force a required response...for some other reason A parent who induces a child to perform in a required way...by destructive criticism..is not offering constructive criticism...but is likely to be more concerned with ownself image...for example...A child nagged to do well in school..may produce similar results...at least temporarily...to one who is beaten and orridiculed...but his/herreasons for trying hard and attaining therequired

    How odd...to guess at circumstances about which you all know so little, and to be so willing to award guilt, and blame.. Possibilities are endless.Establishing paternity,.will not be difficult.

    There is very good service...in many French shops and restaurants.... Just remember that the people who work there...are not to be patronised. Thats to say...treat each person as an equal...with friendship and politeness. Restaurants are not places where you go to get food, eat and leave...no one is in a hurry in French eating. You will not be ushered out...if you sit and talk for a long time... and if that's what everyone seems to be doing...and not thinking about your needs...then be glad to be a part of a relaxed eating community. Almost everyone here gets 2 ..maybe,2 and a half hours...for lunch break ..it is not polite to demand that the custom changes to make a nation of fast-serve food.

    can't find the post again where it is pointed out that anyone providing a 'service' in France...might ...very reasonably ...expect to be treated as an equal...not any kind of 'slave'. I have known two Americans driven to paroxysms of rage...by Parisien exchanges with people they expected to be much more subservient. Having sufficient money to pay for someone's time, almost anywhere in France...does not give you the right to claim it...or to decide the kind of behaviour from them..that you are entitled to. Come to France without any sense of entitlement...is best... I'm most familiar with the complaint 'bad service'....from British travellers or new residents in France. (Born in London but ...with several different cultural influences)... All cultures that have a strong class structure, whether based in wealth/property..or lineage/ancestors etc....no matter where in that structure anyone might identify as an 'own place'...tend to teach expectations that do not work well in less class divided societies. Do not expect anyone to behave as if you have any right to claim his/her attention, or time. If you are a millionaire or a pauper...have the courtesy to recognise that égalité means much in France. ...Not always...but very often.

    Yes of course you are right, Brian... there are better ways to take care of the children than I suggested...There are certainly mother.. and even very tiny baby ..swimming pool clubs..Compulsory swimming lessons could work...but I think that Japan in many ways... is exceptionally watchful over its children...I do not know the stats on water dangers/accident/drownings for children in Japan...but it may well be the case, as a previous poster suggests... that more elderly people at home, drown in bathtubs....popularly deeper/wider... than western baths... than children in rivers and lakes etc, so perhaps extra precautions would not be acceptable?
