Pleasantly Surprised...

I was reading a technology news site today and came across a gutter press story about a Belgian man who found out that his wife was cheating on him.

It turned out that she is also transsexual, something that she didn't tell him.

The story is not a good read, and really is gutter press. But I was drawn to the comments section...

Against my expectations the comments there were actually very reasonable and thought out.  For the most part, there are of course the obligatory Neanderthals in there. 

I was pleasantly surprised...

You can find the story here, the link to the comments is at the bottom.


  1. I expected better from The Register.

    Mind you this comment made me laugh:

    It'd be good if he could also have managed not coming across as a prejudiced bellend" though...

    1. So did I... But like I said, there were a few really good comments there.

      And yes, that is a funny one!

  2. Was he not perfectly happy after running off with his young au pair for the first nineteen years!?

    1. I think that one of the comments actually summed up the story the best.

      "They both sound like pretty s*tty people to me"

      It was an awful story, and if you removed the trans aspect it would never have even been reported.
