Brighton (UK) Council adopts new “Mx.” title for its transgender population
Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 10:09 EST, 3 May 2013 | Helen Lawson

Posted on 05/04/2013 1:35:52 PM PDT by Olog-hai

A council is to include the title “Mx.” on its official forms to be more accommodating to the trans-community.

Campaigners say that “Mx.”, short for “Mixter”, is a gender-neutral alternative to Mr., Mrs., Ms. and Miss.

Brighton and Hove city council’s trans-equality panel previously pointed out that the gender part of forms allows people to say if they are male, female or other. It said the lack of options in the title field does not provide for people who do not identify as male or female. …

Every day I wake up and wonder how much more ridiculous the homosexual agenda can get and every day I am not disappointed.

For gender confused, befuddled or otherwise screwed-up simpletons they could just insert a Perv. in front of their worthless names.

Paddle faster all levels of government. You’ll reach the River Styx before you know it.

They just don’t stop. Enough with the “homosexual ‘rights” Then the transgender BS.

Watch as the polygamy gang gets a head of steam, the man-boy perverts, the polyamory bunch. This is why it was important, amongst many reasons, to put a stop to the homosexual movement in its infancy. We saw the same thing with “civil rights” First it was about fairness/equality under the law. Then it went to “preferences”/”Affirmative action”/quotas .. and now “diversity” Full circle from judge not color etc to now color matters, and only color etc matters.

Henceforth I shall add it any time I reference mx. mark kelley-giffords. Politician in waiting. Let’s see how long it takes until he runs for something. Possibly gabby’s old seat?

At least now, with the "Mx" prefix, we won't have to guess... Or will we?

Isn't that more stigmatizing than just calling them Mr or Miss or Mrs or Ms?

Doesn't it signal just who is trans-whatever more clearly than the trans-whatever community would like?

Don’t you just want to slap the cockeyed grin off his smarmy face?!

The new norm, for the wierdos out there, for the rest of us - not so much.

MX - what a stupid label - I can’t begin to imagine the meeting of the minds that come up with this trash.

Not just ridiculous but obnoxious, extremely obnoxious. If heterosexuals went on like this, liberals would be screaming bloody hell. How about we have a heterosexual parade...heterosexual rights..have celebrities come out as ‘heterosexual’...oh a sport star has come out as a heterosexual... have mandatory heterosexual teaching in schools...

If Antoine Dodson and David Bowie could come out as heterosexual, anything’s possible.

“that is short for Mxyzptlk”

You must be as old as I am! Mr. Mxyztplk was the comic relief that Superman readers needed after the Man of Steel had battled Lex Luthor for issue after issue.

Do you remember when he legally changed his name and won election as mayor of Metropolis? Voters chose Maxy Z. Toplik without knowing why or how. Superman had his hands full undoing the unintended consequences of Toplik using fifth dimensional magic to solve crime & other urban problems.

Guess how Superman tricked him into saying his new name backwards.

;^)

I always wondered why Mxyzptlk never tried to take on Darkseid.

I’m Probably older- 1949. . But there was no villain like Brainiac. Gosh, he shrunk the kryptonian city of kandor and put it in a bottle. That’s power.

I can imagine how soup got mister Mxyzptlk to say his new name backwards. Kill Pot z yxam. Did he make him want to ban marijuana?

No, I’m older, 1948. Superman played a vagrant hauled into court where Toplik was judge and demanded his name. “Kilpot Xyxam!” Toplik replied, “Very well, Mr. Kilpot Xyxam, I hereby sentence you to thirty days and....suddenly I have the strangest feeling!”

Soup shows his caped costume & the rapidly disappearing Toplik vows, “You got me this time, Superman, but I’ll be back!”

So they now have a title that distinguishes them from normal people? Instead of them claiming to be the sex they are not?

I'm for it, whatever the motivation of the Brighton Council. It means less confusion for the rest of us, anyway.

Mx? (snort) Just put a “?” in front of the name. It is every bit as informative.

How things change.

In the 60’s Brighton and Hove was a safe Conservative seat that Prime Ministers used.

It was Conservative Central....:^)

The term “It” can work here. As in “It’s Pat!”

funny....you always knew Soup was going to send the little perp back, but you read for the solution. the one you mentioned I probably read in the day....heck I read them all(superman and action comics)...plus Detective Comics, and Blackhawk. this was all in the pre-Marvel college craze days. I read some of those Marvels in college....it was a thing to do(though I will always be a DC fan first)....I mean..”the Silver Surfer”, what the heck was that?

then in 1994, Alcubierre proposed a method for changing the geometry of space by creating a wave which would cause the fabric of space ahead of a spacecraft to contract, and the space behind it to expand. The ship would then ride this wave inside a region of flat space known as a warp bubble, and would not move within this bubble, but instead be carried along as the region itself moves due to the actions of the drive. So Jack Kirby was ahead of his time..
