Shakespeare, who had boys playing women pretending to be men, could have done something with this. Jennifer Miles, a musicology student at New York University, is suing the institution for alleged sexual harassment by her professor, who fondled her breasts and buttocks, tried to kiss her and repeatedly asked for sex.

The thing is, nobody - least of all the professor - realised Jennifer is technically still a man. (S)he is having hormone treatment, but has yet to undergo the sex-change operation. A judge has just ruled, though, that that is no obstacle to the $14m (pounds 8.7m) suit going forward.
