    What would you do if your instructor was a trannasexual (shemale, Transgender, "t-girl, transvestite w/e
    you classify them) I'm not trying to be rude but me and a couple mates were having this discusion.

    I said if it was a man opting to be a women i would do a runner, but if it was a women opting to be a man then i may stay.
    This may be due to it being a social norm for women to wear mens clothing etc so I probably be immune to that problem.

    My mate on the other had a muslim said he would probably insult and punch them and ask for a refund. Crazy i know.

    But seriously guys what would you do, no political correct bs here please just 100% true.

    I'd do a mental check to make sure I was careful with pronouns, and then carry on learning to drive?

    I know it's 01:25 so I may just be tired... but aren't those both the same?

    On topic though, I wouldn't give a **** as long as they were a good teacher.

    As much as I'd like to be accepting of them, I'm not. It would make me extremely uncomfortable- even uni lads in drag make me feel uncomfortable. I wouldn't want anything to do with them personally. I know it's a prejudice and a lot of people probably think it bad but I just can't tolerate it. I hate transsexualism, transgenderism and transvestitism.

    Edit: I knew this would get me negged and I know it's an awful thing to feel, but it's the one thing that makes me uncomfortable. I have met transsexual people and I know they can be lovely and I understand they endure so much pain in their belief that they were born into the wrong gender, I just don't agree with what they do to themselves, and I don't accept it because it just goes fundamentally against a lot of things I feel strongly about and it contradicts my ideas of right and wrong and I just don't like the whole trans thing. The OP asked for no BULL **** and this is my honest opinion. But feel free to disagree, that's what TSR is for.

    There's an awful lot wrong with that post, but I'm too tired to argue. It's pretty disgusting that people treat transgendered people in this way.

    I'd make sure it was clear what pronoun they would prefer I use and carry on as normal. They're still people you know.

    I'd be initially shocked at first but if they were a really good instructor I would honestly stay.

    But you sound like a ****ing hypocrite tbh.

    Im going to be 100% honest here. I would be creeped the f*** out. I dont have a problem with gay people, but I am literally terrified of male to female transexuals. It's a phobia that I very much do not want to have, but I cant help it.

    I seem to remember that there was a transsexual driving instructor on here not so long ago asking the same thing (although, in a slightly less retarded manner). Most didn't seem to mind.

    I don't understand a person's need to be a transsexual (bad wording, I know, but you know what I mean), so I'd probably ask him/her about it during the driving instructions.

    You should dump your mate for starters - crazy indeed!

    So you would do a runner if it was a male to female transsexual but not the other way round? I don't think your comment about women wearing men's clothing being the social norm is the reason. I wear trousers almost all the time when I am instructing, because it is more convenient and more comfortable.

    Now, this is likely to be a controversial statement and I am not saying it does apply to you but a lot of men have a problem with transsexuals because they fear that the person is going to fancy them and make a pass at them (or whatever the current terminology is). Complete rubbish (ooh the temptation to put in a pun then was very great!) If the guy is a real adonis he is more likely to be propositioned by a gay guy than a transsexual!

    In the same way as you are in the car to learn to drive, the instructor, regardless of gender, is in the car to teach you. It is not a social or a sexual exercise.

    When I originally posted here about being transsexual, I had overwhelming support from the members of TSR (for which I am very grateful). As for my pupils, I reckon I've lost a small number because of who I am but it's their problem, not mine. I don't like it but there's nothing I can do about it. Some of those I expected to lose, I have kept; some I have expected to keep I have lost. There's no telling - but I applaud anyone who takes a transsexual at face value and doesn't condemn them for the way they live their life.

    Finally, I would never have become an instructor had I not jumped over the gender fence. When I trained, as a man, I was uptight, impatient, bossy and uncaring because my internal struggle was made manifest in my instruction. I changed, half way through training, resolved my internal struggle, passed the exams with flying colours and am now a successful, if impoverished, instructor. On the positive side, my pupils get a female instructor, patient, calm and approachable who has good spacial awareness and can park the car. :evil: :grin: (That was irony by the way, just in case!)

    And you associate with disgusting thugs because ... ?

    I couldn't care less if my driving instructor was transexual or transvestite, I don't care about their private lives, if they're a good teacher, what more can you ask for?
