If that is how you draw the line, then I think you would fall foul of the Equality Act.

If that is really what you wish to - for want of a better word - think, then so be it.

In the context, you are clearly and emphatically making your distinction along a line prohibited by the Act.
Your defence under section 9 fails unless you can demonstrate why the "relevant life experience" of a transvestite is sufficiently more dissimilar to that of a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transexual, than any dissimilarity between any of the pairs of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transexual.

The context was your inability to tell the difference.

I think that on the matter of gender reassignment it is within the law that a person in the body of a man might successfully apply for gender reassignment to that of a woman, having jumped through the necessary hoops, but may remain pre op and indicate a total preference for vaginal sex with a woman while 'cross dressing' as a man. What interesting times we live in.

No Atti, the context is in the suitability of the candidate.

I think you've proved your unsuitability for this role.

Being suited to a job and wanting it are not one and the same.

True, but not wanting a job does drastically reduce one's suitability.

But this is a distraction from the point you had wrong earlier. Did you want to give it another go?
