Where did he get the money for this? I could see parents, even the government, paying for gender reassignment surgery. But $90K on top of that to look like Britney? No. No. No.

She's cute.

Not even in a full-blown blackout-grade drinking binge. The TS in the story doesn't do much for me either.

Ok, before the antitrans gets here, lets get a few things out of the way.

1) Research has indicated that gender identity problems are a reason of the genes, not necessarily mental illness.
2) It doesnt affect you so why the fark do you care if a man calls themself a woman or if a woman calls themself a man
3) Its none of your farking business
4) Transgendered people are just like you and I
5) These people need our help. They need to be shown compassion and love.
6) The T in LGBT is the least represented group. THEY NEED more people to speak out for them

Oh, one more thing, they also kill themselves more oft. How would you like it if a sibling kill themselves if they feel not loved?

I'm not against transgendered people. The way I figure it, they're paving the way for elective human augmentation once the technology gets here. They'll pave the way for the transhumanists.

Considering what stuff some other people spend $90,000 on, this actually isn't bad at all.

I think there's still some debate over whether it's genetic or a developmental issue in the brain during gestation. It's been pretty certainly determined that the brain structure within the hypothalamus dictates gender identity, and that in transsexuals, that structure runs counter to the genetic sexual identity (The X and the Y chromosomes), but HOW the hypothalamus becomes mismatched is still a matter of debate. It could be genetic. It could be environmental conditions in the womb. It's still not known.

There's a similar debate with homosexuality, it's definately biological but I don't think it's been determined to be genetic....yet.

Either way, you're definately born with it.

Not to mention changing your appearance as Britney changes her appearance. Transsexual or not, it's creepy to tie your own identity so closely to a celebrity's. It's almost like she doesn't have any identity of her own.
 
2012-07-23 12:06:40 AM
She doesn't look any more like Spears than the next blonde. She just looks like a random chick in a bar.
 
2012-07-23 01:08:45 AM
She doesn't look too bad. Good for her.

*sips whiskey*
 
2012-07-23 01:30:04 AM
1. She doesn't look a thing like Britney Spears.
2. Get a better role model.
3. I wonder how much porn one has to do to earn $90,000.

He could have just shaved his head, gain 20 pounds

I sense a tense disagreement.
 
2012-07-23 01:41:29 AM
Yeah, I'd hit that, but then judging from the childhood pics, I'd have the same response if the kid grew up male.

/nice cleavage btw Ghastly
 
2012-07-23 01:41:53 AM
I don't see it.
 
2012-07-23 01:42:01 AM
All the Britney-related bashing aside, she looks damn good. Definately got her money's worth IMO.

High school pic looks like a chick but totally sick she has a dick... :(

Kara says as well as looking like Britney, she also had a breakdown at the same time as her heroine and shaved her hair
 
2012-07-23 02:01:22 AM
When did Ghastly get cleavage?
 
2012-07-23 02:05:12 AM
I have no problem with people spending money on stuff like this, to each their own. Hell, if I thought I'd make a good looking woman I might consider it myself.

Homosexual behavior has been found to be genetically determined in fruit flies.

/Kind of obvious, they are fruit flies after all.

You forgot one: If you respect your fellow human beings you will refer to them as their publicly presented gender.

Um, you realize that many mental illnesses are, in fact, congenital, right?

It's not a mental illness because it doesn't impede your normal functioning, but it being an irregularity caused by a genetic variation is actually an argument in favor of it being a disease.

I mean, I agree with your general "no skin off my nose, so who cares" position, but c'mon, if you're going to argue a point try to argue it properly. Preferably by making points that support your position instead of ones that counter it.

"As well as undergoing a sex change, she says that she also takes after her idol in other ways and shaved her hair to look more like Britney Spears after having a breakdown"

Britney had a sex change?
