I used to get a lot of e-mails from the Transgendered crowd. A lot of these mainly consists of invites to events, parties, clubs and the like. There are those who would wish to get to know me with a view to striking up a friendship of sorts. Only a small fraction of them tended to be pervy or a little suggestive in the physical department. Looking back, I can pin-point the exact moment when I got involved with the scene. I had mistakenly believed that I was part of it. Truth be told, my battles with intersexuality and trying to fit in started from an earlier age. I had a childhood unlike any other and had crossed the gender divide more than one occasion, constantly trying to feel my way through life and where I fit in. I had simply assumed that I was unique. Well, unique in the sense that I wasn't like my brother, who had his own gender defects, and whose own abnormalities where sorted out much, much earlier on as it was more dangerous for him as a child. I simply carried on through childhood discovering its joys and pains, its promises and hopes. I would like to think that had a happy childhood. Though reality was much worse, I still managed to form an impenetrable wall of fantasy in which I thrived. I became my own company, relying solely on my own ingenuity to endure all hardships that came upon me. There was of course, the expectation to excel, the hopes that I would be an example to my siblings and perhaps be the person my parents could not be. It was a hard task. My dad was a prodigy of sorts in the medical field and my mom was the one blessed with classical beauty as well as intelligence and had come from a long line of Indian aristocrats. But by being constantly ill, I always fell short of their expectations. The final straw came when just over a decade ago, a violent argument led me to pack my bags and come to England. I had gone tired of trying to match unreachable expectations and when I got here, the years of battling breathing problems, cancer scares, hormonal intervention, steroids and the sheer exhaustion of trying to compete, left me a weak and rather unappealing person. Testosterone infusions to develop my failed masulinity gave me the edge in the legal field but left me severely overweight, unhealthy, bald and very, very aggressive. Truth be told, I was aggressive towards women. I felt insanely jealous that my childhood as a girl did not develop me into these beautiful creatures who really dominated half the planet. The hormones suppressed all the inborn feminine feelings I had inside. I suppressed my caring side, my desire to kiss boys, to love and to marry. I felt robbed. I felt that everything I did had to be measured. felt that the only way I could prove myself was to activate that abberated Y-Chromosone as all my XXs had deserted me. I had decided to forget about my life in the convent, the constant gender switching at home and my social life and the unreasonable fear that my two halves collided with each other everytime I had to attend a social gathering there the parties knew me as a girl or a boy. I wanted to fix my position. Having unable to live as a girl because of my physical limitations and in a culture where child-bearing and marrying the right connection is important, I became a guy. Actually, I became a lot worse. I became a lawyer. And a darn good one at that. I graduated very young and became a lecturer in Criminal Law and Jurisprudential theory before I even had my first beer. A strong career in a powerful family-run firm beckoned. But that fateful argument with my family changed all that. I gave everything up. I ran away. 11050kms to be exact. Those early days when I was in London were hard. I was studying for the English Bar with my 'inheritance' share and had no money for anything else. Including medical treatment. There were even times when I resorted to stealing food to keep me from passing out. I also noted that people had more or less forgotten me when I left home. I had truly burnt the proverbial bridge. Then I met my Ex. It was at a dinner at Lincoln's Inn in London. She and I just connected. She knew what I was but accepted me nonetheless. She was separated, bringing up five kids and reading Law. A truly formidable woman. I was so touched that she took the time to care for me. Her kids were simply marvelous and treated me as if I were part of the family. Through them, I experienced the joys of bringing up children. I experienced the hurt when they yelled at me, their nervousness when I was called to PTA meetings and their joy when they did well in their exams. I bandaged their wounds, fixed their bicycles and built them a pool. I tried to be their dad in a way. Or a different sort of 'mom'. Still doing odd retail jobs, money was still very tight for me. But I still managed. I still could not afford treatment and whatever I had left at the end of the day were spent on family necessities. I still got sick. I still felt the pang
Benjamin's Sale of Goods
BENJAMIN MAKES ANOTHER GOOD SALE A review by Phillip Taylor Just the list of names of the above editors alone sums up this book – It is a brilliantly conceived piece of work and the ultimate statement of the law of sale of goods. It is not long ago that the first, newly formatted edition appeared (1974). This seventh edition remains the key authority in its field today. To find out a little more about its original author, Judah Philip Benjamin, the Common Law Library has produced some interesting biographical information about the man who was born in 1811 in the West Indies. Benjamin’s life makes fascinating reading and is a welcome addition as a human touch to the heavier prose of the volume. Benjamin’s family moved to Charleston and he attended Yale College as it then was. Without completing his degree, he was called to the Bar in America, entering the legal profession at New Orleans in December 1832. Then he began writing. Ten years later he served in the State legislature, and a decade later was elected to the Senate and re-elected in 1857. Unfortunately, he chose the wrong side during the civil war and was Jefferson Davis’s Attorney General, being known as the ‘brains of the confederacy’ – Benjamin that is, not Davis! When Lee surrendered, and with his life in danger, Benjamin escaped, arriving in England virtually penniless. A Lincoln’s Inn man, he published the “Contract of Sale” in 1868 and other works, the most well known becoming “Benjamin on Sale”. He became a silk in 1872, and a Bencher of Lincoln’s Inn in 1875 but retired eight years later, living in Paris where he died on 6th May 1884. I mention this history of a remarkable man because we have, with the seventh edition, an array of eight current experts, guided by Professor Guest as the General Editor. The team have produced the final word about selling goods in England and Wales and overseas for the lawyer. It is to the credit of Thomson Sweet and Maxwell that they maintain the highest standards of their publishing house with the contributions of such an excellent team of leading academics in the field. Indeed, we have the foremost thinkers of the early twenty-first century reflecting on an original work which Benjamin would, I am sure, being extremely delighted to see flourishing as the UK deals with the avalanche of changes which have taken place since the book was reconstructed in 1974. KEY RECENT CHANGES TO “BENJAMIN” So what’s in this book it for us at the Independent Bar? Quite a few things, actually, with a thorough and updated text which supports the most relevant law for the sale of goods. Some of the benefits include: •a comprehensive explanation of the law of sale of goods, including terms and conditions, rights and obligations; •establishing the formation and nature of the contract of sale; •examining the implications of E-Commerce, including electronic contracts and payments, European Directives protecting the consumer, Letters of Credit and the eUCP 500; •discussing the unfair contract terms in commercial and consumer sales; •identifying the remedies available when disputes arise; •stating a contemporary view of the latest developments in legislation and case law and their implications for all aspects of sale of goods; •incorporation of the new Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002, and recent European Union Directives protecting the consumer; •an expert commentary on the overseas sales of Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999; •an outline of the implications of the Consumer Credit Act, in force from March 2006; and •an examination of new case law updates to provide a better understanding of their implications from the author team which conveys the highest level of insight and advice for practitioners. The text offers comprehensive, high level analysis of case law and legislation regarding domestic and overseas sale of goods. No other country in the world produces anything like the Common Law Library and Benjamin is in the top three library contenders with Chitty on Contracts, and Clerk and Lindsell on Tort. The depth of analysis in the new Benjamin which is provided by recent case law shows the practitioner just how the principles have been applied and gives guidance on how to tackle any issues that might arise. Judah Philip Benjamin would be delighted to see that the finest and highest traditions of English jurisprudence are being maintained well into the 21st century.
