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?


you are still a man because your gender is defined by DNA not appearance or wishful thinking.


How?  When you die in an accident everything left is just a pool of blood and meatballs that cant be identified they will conclude you were male no matter how you didnt want to be male.

(added beause you replied before i wrote it)

 

I know I am still a man. I didn't change my gender...


I was not really talking about you   more about if a man thinks he is a female after whatever (surgery etc)  he is wrong.  See my example in my prior reply.

How in the world did you come to that conclusion? I never implied that.

I never even used the word "biologically" the way you used it. Note in the OP that I said "a biological man", because he has a man's body. You can't change your biology, correct, but you can change genders.


No, you can't lol. You can look like one, but that's about it. And the reason I made the vampire analogy is because you said someone can be something simply because their mind tells them they're something. As if because their brains think it's true, that it's acutally true. 

Lots of people think they're something they're not. People with bi-polar disorder sometimes hear voices when they're manic. Does that mean those voices are real? No? That's my point.

You can think you're John Lennon, a women, or a piece of salad. But that doesn't mean you're any of those.

Now you're just spinning. That is not at all what I meant. 

You said it, you can look like one but that is NOT about it...You can both LOOK like one and FEEL like one. What more do you need for you to be able to call yourself a woman/man?

Well... I thought the point of being a transsexual is so that you would want to be the opposite sex of what you are currently and not want to be labeled as a transsexual?

I don't think we can generalize for all of them. Heck, many join support groups/meet-ups with "transsexual" in the name. Still, I am not asking for there to be an option to select "transsexual". I am asking for the option to change from "male" to "female" and the reverse

That's the issue of biology vs. psychology. You're still biologically the gender you were born as, but psychologically you are absolutely not. There is more to a person than their X and Y chromosomes.

I see no point in this personally, and I haven't seen any website that puts Trans gender as an option.

I never said someone couldn't CALL themselves the cookie monster, man, women, a dragon etc. I said they can't physically BE a sex that they weren't born as. It's all in vain. All of those people acting emo, hating themselves, wishing they were dead... because of what? Because they can't accept who they really are! It's sad.

Read through the OP and/or thread again. I am not asking for that option

Isn't gender based on your body? Your a man no matter what your brain thinks. Same with women. If you go ahead and have surgery then I guess that's different but if you have a new body might as well make a new accoubt



Ltd predictions by the time 9th Gen comes out

Ps4:110million

Xbox one :75 million( was 65) 

Wii u: 20 milliion

Maybe the profile should state the number of X chromosomes instead then, problem solved.

-____- yeah you asked why doesn't VGChartz have a trans-gender option and it's the 21st century blah blah blah, Like I said there is no point in putting that option on this webstie or any others.
