UK: Transsexual Police Officer Suing for Being Outed

The basics: police constable Emma Chapman is suing for being embarrassed when a police dispatcher questioned her on her male-sounding voice on the police party-line radio. She says she was forced to declare she was a transsexual over the radio and this led to her suffering from severe emotional distress to the tune of £3,000 (about $5,000).

I can understand the embarrassment, as it’s implied she was deep stealth. And I sympathize with the issue of being “sir’d” on the phone or radio. I hope she is able to come to an arrangement and continue being out there and on the force, as we need every one of us to be mainstreamed.
