Skirts teacher sacked

A SCHOOL teacher in Beijing has been sacked because he liked to wear women's clothes.

Cao Jing, 46, got married in 2000 wearing a body-hugging vest and colorful mini leggings, the Southern Weekly reported.

But this enraged his wife and her family and the couple were soon divorced.

In 2004, Cao went to a photographer's studio for a set of pictures of him wearing various skirts, including mini skirts, as a declaration of his new life, the magazine said.

But the high school he worked for immediately suspended him from duty.

Now Cao, who is seen around town wearing a white skirt and red silk scarf, lives on just 600 yuan (US$87.71) a month.

Cao told the magazine he had always been in love with a male friend in primary school but he lost contact with him about 35 years ago.

He had studied French, German and Spanish after graduating from the English department of Capital Normal University but suffered several embarrassing moments during his studies.

Once someone yelled "You're homosexual!" at him in class.

Cao now spends his days visiting book stores, CD and DVD shops and looking at skirts in women's boutiques he can no longer afford.
