- He wrote "As far as I was concerned, men who want to be women were only really to be found on the internet or in the seedier bits of Bangkok,"
- "They were called ladyboys, and in my mind they were nothing more than the punchline in a stag night anecdote".
- He referred to the parents of a child of some “friends of friends”, saying “her parents had simply indulged this whim” when she expressed doubts about her sexuality."
- Clarson added "But they must not, and I was going to emphasise this with spittle, be allowed to poison the mind of a child."
