I wonder what the viewing figures are, for stuff like this:

I’m not going to watch it, for a start.

Also not watching - I'm assuming it will do a sterling job at peak transing several more people though...

Freddy is 30 and yearns to start a family but for him this ordinary desire comes with unique challenges. He is a gay transgender man.

I’m not watching it, but I financed it modestly, by buying a TV licence.

There must be something on YouTube I can watch.

I kind of feel I ought to but not sure if I can face it

I’m watching. It’s an uncomfortable watch so far ...

let's hold hands then
I'm just watching on catch up

tartantroosers Tue 10-Sep-19 21:20:02

Dear God, only on the BBC. What are we becoming?

bumblenbean Tue 10-Sep-19 21:21:21

Highlight so far - transgender man and male partner attending ‘The London Women’s Clinic’ 😏 to quote ‘create the kid’ shock

newtlover Tue 10-Sep-19 21:22:08

he really doesn't pass as a 30 yo man, more an 18yo lad

Does Freddy work? I missed the first bit

Soontobe60 Tue 10-Sep-19 21:25:04

So Freddie's can't cope with having a period and carrying tampons. How's afresdie going to feel when carrying a real live foetus?

Michelleoftheresistance Tue 10-Sep-19 21:27:04

What is this 'increasing hostility'? I know a lot of exasperated women are talking about women's rights but the hostility I'm really not seeing, never mind the escalation.

Escalating racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, yes all of that....

Soontobe60 Tue 10-Sep-19 21:28:03

And by some miracle Freddy is able to keep his jeans on for an internal scan 😱

tartantroosers Tue 10-Sep-19 21:29:32

Sorry, I don't get it. They're going to "flood your uterus with good quality sperm" - these are two blokes, no?

Mildpanic Tue 10-Sep-19 21:29:38

Is this mildly more interesting than the usual brexit issues on gmtv? That’s all they talk about, brexit or the transgender debate. Am I missing anything?

boredboredboredboredbored Tue 10-Sep-19 21:30:17

It's bullshit therefore won't give the bbc y viewing figure. Seahorse my fucking arse.

tartantroosers Tue 10-Sep-19 21:30:25

I'm just waiting for Bercow to pop up behind the bed- "ORRRDAAAAAH".

I'm watching and it's really interesting. Freddie comes over well so far - quite self deprecating. I'm not sure how much Freddie has thought through all the implications but how many parents do?

Soontobe60 Tue 10-Sep-19 21:31:27

Freddy is female. Presenting as male. Still has all the reproductive bits.
