Christian, Doctor David Mackereth refused to call 'a 6ft bearded man' (madam) and he has now been sacked. Is this right or wrong?

    Wrong. Perhaps if/when the patient had transitioned and changed their documents to reflect it. Until then the christian name would have sufficed. How do they deal with people who believe they are a unicorn or something... do they call them "it"?

    It was a hypothetical question, so he didn't refuse to call anyone anything.

    It is wrong that the NHS is wasting our money on cases like this.

    I would call a 6 ft bearded man anything he liked...why not....but in my mind I might hold him in complete contempt. People should get over all this stuff...its just a modern take on the 'Emperors new clothes' parable.

    It's one thing to be gay but quite another to pose as women just to get into women's bathrooms as many do.Being a bearded woman is a bit bizarre. If they want to be thought a woman then surely they would at least shave? And of course it's wrong to sack this doctor.

    EDIT but why call patients anything ? I hate being called "Sir"

    "Centre manager James Owen denied this — telling the tribunal there had been no such ‘bearded man’ discussion, nor had Dr Mackereth been suspended or sacked.

    Describing the meeting, Mr Owen said: ‘I asked the claimant if he would respect the customer’s wish to be referred to by their chosen sexuality and name and would he convey that in his written report.

    ‘The claimant categorically stated that he would not do that due to his beliefs and he could not put that in a report as his conscience would not allow that. The claimant also stated that he understood that his behaviour could be offensive.’

    Mr Owen told the tribunal, which ended on Friday, that ‘at no point was the claimant asked not to come back into work’, and added that he ‘respected his wishes not to work’.

    It is wrong to grandstand and bilk the NHS for an unwarranted pay off.

    It's very wrong. It's time these trannies and such like were treated as the nutters that they are.
