Just to counteract the feeling that everything and everyone is sliding into bigotry, I think this is well worth flagging up. It’s a short BBC film about a family whose father transitions into womanhood. The family are open, honest and accepting. At a time when social tolerance seems to be becoming more and more rare, and fools who decry political correctness are lorded for speaking some sort of suppressed reactionary truth, it’s good to see that some pockets of open-minded liberalism remain.
The film is called When Dad Became Charlotte. Since I nabbed that title for this entry, I better just clarify that that refers to neither my dad or my friend Charlotte, although if those two somehow metaphysically exchanged places it would certainly be interesting. 😀
