Transsexuals anger at Sir slur

A furious transsexual has hit out at pharmacy chain Boots after an assistant in one of its Wigan stores insisted on calling her “sir” in front of other customers.
Crissi Makin underwent a full sex change operation six years ago to turn her from being a man into a woman.

The 51-year-old says she has always been treated as a lady by people in Wigan and was shocked and upset by comments made to her by a pharmacy assistant at her local Boots store in the Gerard Centre, Ashton.
Crissi has to collect a prescription of painkillers every fortnight for a back injury following a bad fall, but says she was repeatedly subjected to “transgender-phobic”
remarks from the female counter assistant.
