Another of those serendipitous pieces of weirdness ocurred today.

This afternoon Radio 4 had a play about a celebrated case of an 18th Century Doctor (female masquerading as male) caught out after marrying a woman, who was "outed" in a pamphlet written by Henry Fielding.

Surgery started just after the play ended. First patient in was seeking to register his change of gender in order to get married to his long term partner, decades after adopting his male gender identity.

There are days when I wonder if someone "up-there" is having a laugh.
