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

You identify as a male, so you are a male. You identify as a female, so you are a female. 

Our identity is what tells us (and others around us) what we are.

I don't care. If a crazy person believed they were a dragon. Why shouldn't he get a dragon option? Not saying transsexuals are crazy but I believe it has to do with the body.

I didn't ask that.

Why is there no point, though? As was mentioned above, FB quite recently added lots of new gender options. These are changing times. Time to adapt.

So you would agree with the chicken thing? 

And who uses FaceBook anymore? Pah.

No, I would not. Genders and species are absolutely not comparable subjects. If you disagree, feel free to try to convince me and other forum goers.

We had one person before. They were obsessed with the game Raplay and kept adding information to the database about it, later we deleted the game because it wasn't appropriate, so she/he freaked out and left VG Chartz :-/

That's a little insensitive to all the zero chicken people out there.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Many aren't familiar with the distinction between gender and sex...

Yeah, there should be male, female + other and the option to change or hide it. The website has much bigger issues, but it could probably be done in a few minutes.

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.

What if I feel that I am psychologically alien? Or a turtle?

Before I keep repliyng you have to tell my if this is allowed to turn into a real debate about transexuality  or if it was ment as a joke thread or if it was just talking about the gender option.

Let me just say that all humans in the civilized world are "acting" no guy is cool and no girl is unaproachable.  Pink is NOT a feminine color and blue is not a masculine color all of this is "acting" and arbitrary rules set by the community.

Even having sex with the same gender being "bad" is an arbitrary rule. Its complete nonsense in terms of biology  but its still not bad in any way

So if you know that everything that you were tought about feminine and masculine is actually arbitrary nonsence   how exactly can you feel you were born into the wrong body? Do you feel the need to produce milk? I dont think so.

I mean skirts are not female (look at scots)  and pants are not male (look at all the women wearing jeans) A bra is also not needed because it just serves an arbitrary ideal of beauty.
There is nothing on earth that is feminine other than females and nothing on earth that is masculine other than males.  And in a tribe were everyone is nude and is doing the exact same thing and there is no product at all that is made for a specific gender do you really think someone could feel "born into the wrong body?"

First let me ask you if you think asking about tribal practices is relevant to current times?

Secondly I commend you for at least making a case for your claims.

The word "biology" is also often used by homophobes for some reason. I'm of the opinion that the individual can decide for himself, whether it's about his gender or his sexuality. We are humans, we shouldn't let biology or nature control us. In the future we might be able to do more gene therapy than we can now, where we can perhaps more easily change someone's gender.

I agree, but they'll just have to deal with it. All zero of them.

Do most transsexuals prefer to categorized as transgendered? I thought the whole point was to go from male to female and vice versa.



This thread makes me feel like i'm on tumblr. A place of love, respect, and equality, providing you aren't a financially stable white middle class male. Then you're pretty much Hitler :D

Seriously though, i see no issue with it being an option. I doubt it would be particularly hard to implement.

You don't care? This isn't really about whether you care or not. It's about something greater than just yourself. Also, that transspecies argument has already been overused in this thread.

Human males and human females are close to 100% the same genetically. We can bridge the difference for the most part with surgery and hormone therapy.
