As councils discuss whether to remove Mr or Mrs from forms, this caller is worried his gender identity is being taken away from him.

Oxford City Council is to add the gender-neutral option of Mx while it decides whether to phase out all titles from their documentation.

Tony from Orpington said he was fed up - first he's not allowed to call himself English on the forms and now he won't be allowed to be a man either.

"This is the way it's going, isn't it?" he told Ian Collins. "It's going to turn out following Oxford and Brighton.

"It's going to turn out that we're all Mx. I'll lose my gender identity.

"I'm seriously worried I'll lose my gender forever."

Ian signed off the call: "Tony, I wish you luck on your journey, well not that sort of journey."
