Letters to the Editor

There’s more than one way to crack an egg

Your readers will remember that in “Gulliver’s Travels,” Jonathan Swift ridiculed the trivial disputes between the two main political parties in 18th-century England by imagining two parties in Lilliput whose only difference was that one ate boiled eggs starting at the big end, the other at the small end. They were called the Big Enders and the Little Enders.

I was convinced that by now that fierce rivalry had been settled once and for all. Imagine my surprise then when I was asked this week to fill in a government form which gave me the option of saying if I was bigender.
