Twits mad on driving
ONE in 10 drivers are using Facebook and Twitter while behind the wheel, a shock survey has revealed.
And even more — almost 30 per cent — will read and send texts while driving, say safety campaigners.
Texting at the wheel has been found to make drivers more than 20 times more likely to crash, causing death or serious injury.
The shocking numbers have been revealed by road safety charity Brake.
It found nearly three out of 10 drivers text at the wheel, while almost 10 per cent of drivers go as far as surfing the web, answering emails or checking social sites like Facebook while driving.
Campaigns director for Brake, Julie Townsend, said: “People who text or use the web when driving are taking enormous risks.” PRETTY Kirsty Cass looks like most men’s fantasy woman — in her sexy dress, high heels and stockings.
But most folk don’t know Kirsty was born a man — Andy — and three years ago, in a desperate bid to become a woman, he chopped off his penis with a STANLEY KNIFE.
Andy nearly bled to death as his willy hung by a thread, until medics saved him and sowed it back on.
Thankfully, his extreme self-surgery helped persuade the NHS to give him the sex change surgery he’d wanted since childhood.
Kirsty, 49, said: “By day I was Andy, a council public response officer in scruffy overalls.
“But inside, I really wanted to be a woman. One night, when I was putting my blusher on, I broke down after a few cans of Stella.
“I went downstairs to my toolbox and took out a Stanley knife.
“Then I took another gulp of Stella to numb the pain.
“With the knife in one hand, I grabbed my penis with the other, took a deep breath and stabbed the knife straight in.
“Pain ripped through me but I kept hacking away — it was like chopping sausages.
“Blood was gushing down my legs and my willy was hanging on by a thread of skin. Then I realised I could die.
“I was rushed to East Surrey hospital for an hour-long operation to reattach my manhood.”
Kirsty said that at last she felt like she could ask for help with her gender dysmorphia — she’d wanted to be a woman all her life.
Even when she was married to ex-wife Linda Woodhouse, she would wear women’s clothes.
Kirsty says she is now happier than ever and can’t wait to have her sex-swap op at Charing Cross Hospital next year.
She added: “I’ve legally changed my name and even my 89-year-old dad calls me Kirsty. I dress as a woman and take female hormones.
“My DIY sex change fixed all my problems.”
