The Daily Telegraph - - Letters To The Editor -

sir – Let boys wear tu­tus if they want (re­port, Novem­ber 14).

When my daugh­ter was five, she longed to be a boy, so for her birth­day we gave her boys’ shorts and shirts. At the age of 52, she is a won­der­ful mother of three and a very happy wife.

Up to my late teens I, too, wanted to be a boy, but have thor­oughly en­joyed be­ing a woman, wife and mother. I am now in my eight­ies. Pene­lope Fair­clough

Tat­ten­hall, Cheshire sir – If the Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury is planning to wear a tutu at fu­ture pub­lic oc­ca­sions, I would re­spect­fully ask him to re­con­sider.

sir – How won­der­ful to know that the Church of Eng­land’s spokesman on the “tu­tus for boys” ad­vice is Nigel Gen­ders.
