    I got very upset when I wasn't allowed to have F in the gender box on my passport. I phoned up to complaim only to be told that, whilst I could fill the form in with an F, I'd still get an M in the box because of European rules.

    I guess An Siarach may agree with me on this one... Maybe with this thing the Free State are doing leis an nGaeilge in Brussels (which they should have done in 1973... :rolleyes: ), my next passport can have an F

    I also want learner drivers to be allowed F plates as they are allowed D plates in Wales.

    Why do you want to be female on your passport if you are male? Is it allowed if you are a transsexual?

    Youd have to speak the lingo to get it as to transexuals im not sure, though i would expect so, it would seem in tune with the EC attitude to most things.

    I'm not a transexual and have no gender issues! I am totally male (maybe with a wee bit less testosterone than most, but male all the same!)

    I presume the Gaelic word for Male begins with an F?

    That's kinda stupid, the "official" languages off passports are English and French so of course they're going to make sure it's totally understandable to English and French people.

    Not that I really understand...

    ??? Not sure I understand...

    All EU recoignised languages are on both British and Irish passports, but whereas I can have my place of birth, nationality, date of birth, etc in Irish, I cannot have my gender in Irish. That's my issue.

    In my passport all the headings are in English and French is yours in English and Irish?

    I think it's probably due to the automatic reading machines rather than anything sinister. Check out the numbers on your passport you will find your passport number, nationality and date of birth (in reverse order) and then the gender code.

    Does anyone know what it is on German, Itallian, wherever passports?

    What I find contemptible about polthegael is not that he's Irish (I'm 1\4 Irish myself) but that he comes over here, benefits from our society, and then goes on and on and on and on and on non-stop about how evvvilll we British are, and how the poor Irish have been oppressed, and he insists that his BRITISH passport is changed to fit his political beliefs, that we re-name our country etc.
    he hasn't actually said that he has a british passport

    And I don't. I have an Irish one. I suggest we just let this guy go around alienating himself from everyone. That's what I've been doing these past few day since he developed an issue with me for no reason.

    It's not just the Irish though... He also has an issue with Asians and, as far as I can tell, everyone who is not himself. Such people ought to be ignored. Did you notice his post about enslaving the Irish and using them in a sort of Nazi-Jew type slave labour thing? That's how much respect he deserves

    No reason? You attacked the LSE in the LSE forum! That's like going to the Vatican and ripping a Bible in front of that deluded polish prince's face!
    what do you care what he thinks?

    Pol mate you had me worried there . I thought you wanted the right to call yourself a woman if you saw fit.
    So I guess this confusion is the reason you can't have F on your passport. Most people wouldn't know the Irish for male, and would just assume you were supposed to be a girl. If they had the whole word on it it might be ok. I don't think there's any sinister reasoning behind it, just they want to stop dumb airport workers from becoming confused
