Yesterday we linked to a BBC piece showing that long-suffering British taxpayers will be paying female engineering postgraduate students an additional £15,000 p.a. – well in excess of the gross annual income of a person working full-time on the minimum wage – in return for the hard work they’d put in to having vaginas:
Over our teatime cups of Earl Grey, and fortified by two or three McVities Digestives, we applied our minds to this issue, and an intriguing question emerged:
Would male postgraduate engineering students who have gender reassignment surgery either before or during their postgraduate courses, be entitled to the £15,000 p.a. grants?
Tomorrow we plan to email Brunel University a Freedom of Information request, asking that very question.
