@mthr_jo "I got the impression that Jan Morris did not altogether welcome the zealotry of those who now take up the transitioning cause." I wonder if she altogether welcomed the zealotry of those who now invoke her to bash younger trans people?
@mthr_jo @JayHulmePoet I heard an obituary on Radio 4 Jan Morris. I was pleased that they did a perfect flip with name/pronouns midway through her life at the point she transitioned. You could tell they took care when writing it, and it represented her beautifully..

@mthr_jo "I got the impression that Jan Morris did not altogether welcome the zealotry of those who now take up the transitioning cause."- This line, though not as bad as the misgendering/dead-naming is very telling. Zealotry? or insistence on equality?
Also, on a less serious note, I am very disappointed that an article headlined "Jan Morris relished both male and female" did not refer to her oft-stated wish to have a post-mortem affair with Admiral Jackie Fisher (OMG!, to quote the man himself....)
I've just read Angela Tilby's latest in the CT, and while she might be right that Jan Morris didn't have quite the same perspective as younger trans people, there's something rather nasty about her calling her "James" _while writing about events at the end of her life_.
@katherineschof8 I think that Jan Morris has a section on this somewhere in her Pax Britannica trilogy.
@YvesRees Have just read Jan Morris's autobiography. It has helped me understand what you are going through. How is it regarded among your generation?

RIP; a personal hero. I hoped to meet her, but alas. What a lot of tin-eared, tone-deaf, & frankly foolish debate abt transgender people, recent & not so recent, wd b avoided if people wd just read Conundrum. Carefully. Sympathetically. Repeatedly. https://t.co/d2cltOO7Y3
@AlexandrovnaIng 'Heroes' by Lucy Hughes-Hallett (one of my top 10 books) and 'Men on Horseback' by David Bell. And Jan Morris's Pax Britannica trilogy, since she just died. ('Heaven's Command', 'Pax Britannica', and 'Farewell the Trumpets')
@Piklesuke 😂 I totally forgot about Jan Morris! It could be retconned because I'm not sure they thought too hard about it. Maybe he was inspired? Oh Dr Lang you glorified background character

The allure of lost consequence and faded power is seducing me, the passing of time, the passing of friends, the scrapping of great ships! Stating the fucking obvious: Jan Morris gave it everything. Reading Tieste and the Meaning of Nowhere. ❤️💯👑 https://t.co/gwTdFgMrCT

I’m LOVING Jan Morris’ “Trieste.” Archduke Maximilian was fired as viceroy of Venice and sent to Trieste - he was on the verge of turning St Mark’s Square into an orange orchard and making the campanile into a lighthouse! Thank goodness the Venetians rose up against this idea! https://t.co/igwMdbjsmn
