Gender Bender laps up zer attention!

Gender Bender laps up zer attention!

THE gender-bender Buddie who has become the first person ever to be officially recognised as neither male nor female has revealed they LOVE the Paisley Daily Express!
Paisley-born Norrie May-Welby, 48, hit the headlines after she or he – Norrie prefers the term zie – was granted the classification “Person of No Specific Gender” by Australian officials.
The story quickly spread round the world and Norrie – who had a sex change op at 28 but decided zie didn’t want to live as a woman – has been lapping up the attention.
Now living in Sydney, Norrie’s Facebook site has been bombarded with messages of congratulation from supporters.
Zie even used the site to express delight after every Buddies’ favourite paper picked on zer – another gender-neutral pronoun zie likes to use – bizzare tale.
Posting a link to our story, which carried the headline ‘Gender-bender Buddie gets what zie wants’, Norrie said: “I’ll never live this down!
“‘Buddie’ is the term for a Paisley local or apparently anyone born there. Beats the ‘Scot Ex-Pat’ label. And I’m LOVING the gender-neutral pronoun in the headline!”
Norrie – who emigrated to Australia at the age of seven – entered the world as a man but had a sex change operation in 1990. However, after becoming unhappy living as a woman, Norrie decided to become a ‘neuter’.
The former prostitute is now officially recognised as a person of no specific gender.

    Zie is fantastic! Norrie doesn't want zer sexuality conditioned or limited by stupid labels. Perhaps the term "pansexual" would be the right expression for Norrie (and probably for all of us). Please read the Philosophy and Theory of Pansexuality on http://www.pansexuality.it
