GeneralOMG - I sense an Industrial Tribunal coming up soon. PinPopular

A man who has worked at a solicitors, as a solicitor, for 39 years suddenly decides that he no longer wants to be known as Mike, but wants to be known as Melanie.

Melanie has been on hormone treatment and is on the list for GRS soon.

Melanie has had trouble at home with the Hausfrau unt Kinder, unsurprisingly.

Then Melanie turns up at work in frock and make-up.

Melanie is escorted from building and promptly fired.

How do I know this?

A friend of Michelle's is his secretary and has spilled the beans.

Now, I think that it is generally illegal to fire someone of the grounds of sexual orientation or gender reassignment.
Secondly, it seems foolish for a legal firm to do it, by breaking the law they could lose the right to practise.
Thirdly, and this is the really moronic thing to do, do not fire the firms TOP PROSECUTION LAWYER!

As 'Mike' this guy was sh*t-hot at suing people and companies and had earned a fortune for himself, the company and his clients.
Although 'Melanie' may be wearing a gold lame dress and a pair of slingbacks, that forensic mind will now be outside the tent pissing in!

Best of luck Melanie.
No pun intended, but it takes balls to do what you did.
