Forums - Website Topics - When is VGChartz going to accept transsexuals?

I suppose it would be a good option to have, but I don't think it would be that big a deal. I mean this site has been around for a long time now and if this is the first time it's been brought up... then yeah, not many people care...

People might be afraid to ask, which is why I am asking for them. Still, the past is the past, we're in the now now and now I am asking!

I was looking through the profile settings page and saw no option to change your (profile) gender.

As an example, let's say I was a biological man who signed up as a confused kid 5 years ago but slowly grew into the idea that I was a woman in a man's body. Naturally I would like to change my VGC gender as well, but as far as I'm aware, VGC does not allow that. 

We're already this far into the 21st century. Isn't it time to embrace reality already, VGC?

There is no such thing, biologically speaking, as a "transsexual" or "transgender". You're born either a man or women and no amount of surgery will ever change that. A man can not have working ovaries and a women can not have a pair of working testicals/sperm.

So are you saying you are a transsexual and have changed gender?

No, since I can't change my gender

Right, but your gender has changed right? Or has your gender not changed and you are just saying it should be an option.

It can't be changed due to there being no option for it

Yeah but it's not just about working ovaries/testicals. Or are infertile men not men anymore? What about infertile women, are they not women any more?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

That is your opinion. Not a respectful one, but an opinion nonetheless. What decides what makes a man and what makes a woman? The ability to procreate like your respective gender OR, more importantly, your own mind/feelings telling you what you are? Sure, they might not look 100% like the gender they are but we can say the same thing about men and women in general, nobody looks alike.

Using your definition you could say middle aged women and above are not women...

You are just skirting around the question arnt you :) So basically you are asking for an option though it doesnt apply to you. You could just say that. 

I think the ability to change your registered email address is a bigger problem to be fair. If someone really had an issue, they could just ask the mods.

I agree you should be able to hide your sex from public view if need be though.

Just joking around lol. But to answer your question I have not changed my own gender in real life. The option should be there on VGC, though.

Oh look, we have a SJW here.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Why not, "Why even ask for sex/gender?"

If they don't have to verify your identity in real life and the site isn't about hookups or medical advice or anything where it matters, why do sites still ask for it?

I'd agree that Male/Female/Other should be a bare minimum though, and there should be the ability to change it afterward... Realistically, this isn't a life-vital site, and people can just create a new account. So the admins probably don't care.

You're a man without working testicles and you are a women without working overies. Ones gender can never be changed. You are who you are. If someone wants to have surgery, they are only creating the illusion, or at best, moving slightly closer to what they feel they SHOULD be inside. But the truth is, you, me... we're all stuck with what we are.

Personally, I'd like to see people become secure and accept themselves and love themselves for who they are. If you're a man, be proud of it. If you're a women, be proud of it. Same goes for being fat, acne, gay, lesbian, balding people... just love who you are and stop fretting over things you can not change.
