being a transsexual, not a tranny, is a choice. however, it is not choice that makes a male or female person feel uncomfortable in the body they were born with. it is not "freak" any more than being gay is and to suggest as much demonstrates ignorance and bigotry.

Just read through this thread and I realized the obvious: I was wrong. I made a mistake.

I was feeling a bit irritated and it seems my pugnacious side got the best of me on this one. Thank you all for being polite in showing me the truth; I know I certainly wasn't.

Apologies Twi

See you in another thread!

It depends on how you define a freak. If you mean something unnatural, transexuals and homosexuals definitely fall into an unnatural/freak category.

If you would like, I could get a hold of the suicide note...

And, as much as I support leelah, wasn't it required by law that her birth name be put on her headstone as she wasn't 18 yet and couldn't legally change her name? Anyway, my prayers to her and anyone grieving their loss.

I believe by 'voluntarily altering their body' he was referring to people who have surgeries done to change their sexual organs, and those are what he calls freaks. As yakat said it all depends on what you call a freak, unnatural? Then yes people who undergo such surgeries are freaks, but homosexuality is natural so therefore by that definition they would not be freaks. Anyways as someone else said, pretty much the entirety of all gaming communities use anti-gay slurs such as ***, or homo, etc so I don't quite see the purpose of putting this up here. If you wanted to gain some ground perhaps head to reddit or something lol

The idea was to spread this event to everyone everywhere on all forums, contacts, and acquaintances, just because you don't see the point in it being here doesn't mean I didn't post the exact same post on Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr ect... as well. Generally we wanted to spread the word to everyone everywhere, negative reactions and comments are to be expected. Yet, to my understanding CH doesn't appreciate arguments in the forums amongst players.
