Chelsea Attonley

Taxpayers in the United Kingdom, paid for a man’s treatment to become a woman, a man and again a woman.

Chelsea Attonley, who was born as Matthew, suffers from a condition called gender dysphoria. She was unsure who she wants to be and it took 3 tries before she finally felt comfortable with who she wants to be.

Attonley, 30, of London, England, looks like a woman, and she loves it. However, it took three sex changes until she finally felt confident with her decision to become a woman.

Attonley spent a large part of her life struggling to know if she is a woman trapped in the body of a man - or vice versa. Her mother, Sandra, was very supportive of her sex change.

Attonley said that she lost her virginity to another man when she was just 16 years old. She first became a woman at 18 years old.

When she saved up enough money, she flew to Thailand, where she had surgery to get size 38FF breasts. “Seeing the large lumps on my chest made me very happy,” Attonley said.

However, during the following years, she found it hard to find love. Attonley said that men hit on her for her looks. If a man asked her out, she did not tell him that she was born male. It didn’t seem important.

However, after the first date, she told them the truth, but the men refused to see her again. After many failed dates and being unable to find love, a heartbroken Attonley stopped taking hormones and began living as a man once again.

Her facial hair grew back and her private parts began growing. When she was ready to remove her breasts to continue living as a man, Attonley regretted her decision.

She looked into the mirror and realized that she loved her curves. Attonley decided not to remove her breasts. She then made the decision that she will once again undergo the necessary hormone treatment to become a woman and live as a woman for the rest of her life.

A woman is angry after her husband was fired from his job for stinking up his workplace.

Louann Clem filed a lawsuit against her former employer after her husband Richard, was fired for farting too many times at work.

70-year-old Richard Clem and his wife, Louann, both worked at Case Pork Roll Company in Trenton, New Jersey. He was fired for his extreme flatulence in the workplace, according to court documents.

Louann Clem said in a court document that the termination of her husband was a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Richard Clem supports the lawsuit and he is also taking legal action of his own through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Richard Clem began working at the company in 2004, and he thinks that he did a good job. At the time, Richard Clem weighed about 420 pounds.

However, after he underwent gastric bypass surgery to lose weight, Richard Clem suffered some embarrassing side effects, including “extreme gas and uncontrollable diarrhea,” according to the lawsuit.

Richard Clem lost about 110 pounds. Clem’s side effects caused “significant disruption in the workplace,” according to the lawsuit.

Louann Clem said that company president, Thomas Dolan, complained repeatedly about her husband passing gas and causing the workplace to smell very bad.

Dolan said: “We cannot run an office and have visitors with the smell,” and “tell Richard that we are having complaints from people who have problems with odors,” according to Louann Clem.

Louann Clem resigned the same day that her husband was fired “because of the harassment and discrimination her husband faced as a result of his disability and the resulting symptoms.”

The lawyer for the Clems, David Koller, said that his client suffers from obesity, which is covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Louann Clem is seeking damages that include pain and suffering, compensatory damages and punitive damages.

Richard Clem also wants employees of the company to go through training programs that will prevent future incidents from occurring.
