... because they're transgendered / female mind / etc...
The only thing left out of this conversation is dudes who just pretend to be girls, because they're just faking.
This was brought up in another thread (quite indirectly, but got me thinking.)
So what are your opinions on this?
I'm quite torn, and my opinion kinda slides every which way. On one hand I don't want to be talking to a girl, and then find out she has a penis. On another, there are people like Sawaa who are nothing but female in my mind. I've kinda broken it down to myself, like if someone is living as a female, then they have every right to put "female" as their gender when filling it out out in a profile or something. But if someone is a dude, is living as a dude, then they should put male, or simply keep it private. I have to say it has bothered me in the past when I was talking to a "female" and it turns out they are a male, in every sense of the word. I also believe a person should have the curtesy to tell another if they are transgendered if they ask, and that they should put transgendered as the gender option if it isn't available. And again - if the person doesn't want to do it, then set it as private, or something. I mean, just because I feel like a tyranasauruas-rex or a turtle doesn't mean I put that as my species instead of human.
