Transsexual wants two passports
The Equality and Anti-discrimination Ombud (LDO) has received a unique enquiry.

A man claiming to be a transsexual has asked the LDO for assistance in acquiring two passports, one with a "woman passport photo".

"I have previously applied to the Ministry of Justice on this matter, since traveling as a woman leads to considerable problems when one's passport photo depicts a man," the man writes, describing himself as a "trans-person".

The applicant explains in the letter that traveling as a woman has become markedly more complicated after the Sep. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, due to the increased security checks at airports.

"For me this has made it virtually impossible to travel as a woman. I therefore make a plea that these rules be liberalized such that trans-persons have the opportunity to have two passports," the applicant wrote.

The petition points out that the Ministry of Justice does grant multiple passports in some cases, for example when traveling to areas of conflict where being stamped in one place can make it impossible to travel to another.

Adviser Stian Sigurdsen at the LDO told news agency NTB that the applicant has received a preliminary reply, saying that it can take some time before they decide their position on the matter.

"This is a completely new problem for the LDO. First it must be determined whether transgender and transsexuals are a group that comes under the LDO's sphere of interest. Another problem - if the group is part of our job - is if it is discriminatory that these persons do not get two passports," Sigurdsen said.

The alleged need for two passports will also be assessed on security grounds. On this aspect the LDO will request a statement from the Ministry of Justice.
I don't have a link to this. It was emailed to me by a friend. I'm not sure if it is anything more than hypothetical.

Thanks, but I'm serious. Why does he need to be such an exhibitionist?

The same crowd who would be offended by me if I pray in public has no qualms about this guy with an abnormal sex fetish parading in front of my kids.

To spread the queer agenda I assume . It's not enough to just come out of the closet anymore.

The closet is vastly under rated. I don't publicize my sexual fantasies, so why should they? It has nothing to do with free speech- it's simply a matter of respect for the sensibilities of others, especially children.

As far as I’m concerned homosexual behavior should have at least an R rating. Keep it private and away from kids, and no one should be allowed to bother you about it. Insist on going public, and we've got a problem. This "rule" would preclude gay marriage, gay parents, gay adoptions, gay teachers, gays on TV, transsexual passports, and discussions about gay cowboy movies in the mass media.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to glockmail again

Seems pretty simple doesn't it ?
