A teacher who came out as transsexual and was treated to a horrible article in the DM by Richard Littlejohn has committed suicide. Despite support from the school, she received loads of hate mail.

That should have been me in the media but they never found out. I can't believe society.

RIP Lucy Meadows

This is a very good breakdown of how the "story" unfolded and to which extent the DM is / isn't to blame.

The DM is not to blame. Being trans can really fuck with your head. I know too many people who are trans and have committed suicide, even after surgery.

But at least people might take trans reporting seriously now.
