Gives a new meaning to "chopper pilot."
 
2013-06-14 09:32:08 PM
How is it interesting?
 
2013-06-14 09:33:33 PM
He is getting his penis chopped off. Get mental help first, you will be happier in the end.
 
2013-06-14 09:33:33 PM
Gives a new meaning to "auto-rotate"
 
2013-06-14 09:36:06 PM
So he's going to fight crime at night as a werewolf full time now?

It's fairly uncommon. Uncommon events are usually interesting. Not always, but usually.

How does one actually know if they think like a woman? For all I know, I've been thinking like a woman this whole time too. Seriously thought it would be interesting to hear him/her break down exactly what thinking like a woman entails. What exactly is different in the thought process?

Wow, you know absolutely nothing about the process of diagnosis and treatment of gender dysphoria.

Did you know you cant get the surgery without letters from physiologist?

Assuming you are a male, you do not have sisters, a wife, girlfriend, etc., right?
Assuming you are a female, you have no brothers, a husband, boyfriend, etc., right?

I guess, to me, transgender issues don't seem that unusual any more...and she hasn't been in the news for almost 20 years.

It must be so confusing to figure out which pronouns to use, especially when referring to pre-op events.

Well, if you think the blinking red Change Oil sign on the dashboard is pretty but doesn't matter, you know you're a woman.

Nice one subby. I thought the guy was retiring, not getting chopped.

In a sense that's an apt description.

Don't really care about TFA one way or the other, but wanted to commend Subby on the headline.

Oh, I'm sure you can find someone on the internet that would perform that surgery, no questions asked.

Great! More propaganda about how weirdos are normal.

When I read stories of such developments, I think what it might have been like for people in decades past -- centuries, even -- who suffered from such a situation and might have had no socially acceptable way of dealing with it.
That is, they couldn't assume the role of the eccentric artist or a character in a circus, for example.
What torture.

That was Malcolm's dad, before he sold meth.

*shudder* The balding head and everything... Will never look decent.

Same situation as me, except I stopped going bald by taking hormones. I still feel depressed all the time because of never being able to look female, though.

You feel it tormenting you all the time. You feel excluded from groups of girls doing girl things. You wish you were pretty like your friends and become jealous.

You try to deny how you feel and try to be a masculine person like your anatomy seems to require. You suppress your thoughts of these bad girly thoughts while you lift weights or join the military. Then you collapse from the strain.

Note: This is an example from many cases, not me in particular.

Is there anything at all you want off this machine before I completely format it and reinstall your operating system?
I really really need you to appreciate that once I format it anything and everything will be gone forever.
Pretend I were to throw this harddrive out right now, is there anything you will miss that you wish you had a chance to copy off first?
You are absolutely positively certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is nothing you wish to save? Last chance, no regrets.
If you're sure, here we go....

/Only replace data with your penis. I imagine that would take some very serious thinking to make that decision.

Did you get big fake tits? I'd prolly fark a post-op tranny with a nice pair o' fun bags, and even get a been from a pre-op one.

No... I don't have a desire for being that big. I want them to be decent, but normal. I just want to be normal.

Transgender threads tend to trigger me crying.

Holding misogynistic 1950s stereotypes of femininity is also a requirement apparently.

Honestly, just avoid them then :( no sense in getting upset over silly Fark comments. I hope this thread doesn't bum you out. And who knows, you might e selling yourself shorts on the looks dept.

A Buddy of mine was a chopper pilot for another news station back during the same time period as when Tur became the "famed"  newschopper pilot. He told me that the only thing Bob Tur should be famous for is being the most reckless helicopter pilot in newschopper history.

Tur nearly collided with my Buddy's chopper twice because he was trying to get a "better shot" at the expense of safety.

From the LA. Times, November 8, 1991.:

"Tur's license was revoked on an "emergency" basis six weeks ago after the FAA alleged five counts of "careless and reckless behavior." At a two-day hearing last week, William R. Mullins, an administrative law judge from the Federal Transportation Safety Board, upheld two of these counts, both stemming from incidents that occurred in 1988."

Gender-bending nonsense and pure grade-a bullshiat.

I understand getting your dick and balls cut off isn't the bad part, it's when they remove half of your brain and you lose the ability to parallel park that the shiat gets real.

I have some expertise in this area because I'm a lesbian trapped in the body of a Greek god.
