DNRTFA, but I expect her vagina being pulled for being against the Kickstarter terms of service, especially the "Do not fund your life"-clause.

Xir is hardly oppressed compared to xe and really needs to stand down, shut up and learn to be a good ally by letting xe talk when it's time to share lived experiences of TRUE oppression.

Well ain't that a kick in the box.

Good for her.  For those of you who can't put it together and continue to belittle trans people, just think about it.  You feel like the opposite sex SO MUCH that you are willing to have someone cut on your genitals and change them.  It is not a choice, dumbasses!

/not trans and not stupid.

It's all cosmetic though, which is weird. Genetically they're the same sex.

Then they're both sexes. They can chop off whichever cosmetic indicators they want. Genetically they'll still be both sexes.

You want to live a certain lifestyle? Fund your goddamn self. You can start by giving up trying to support yourself as an "Artist" and getting a real farking job. Farking mooch.

LOL.  It come off that way.

It was more of a preemptive strike for those tards that are going to come in here and post the inevitable stupid, ignorant comments.

Yeah, but until recently nobody knew what a Y chromosome was, and for the most part we still don't go around thinking about our chromosomal sex. Whereas a schlong, or the absence of one, basically says "I am/am not a dude" to every human who's ever lived.

I'm guessing if you want it badly enough to let people with sharp knives at your genitals, you want it badly enough to not sweat the fact that your cells still think of themselves as male.

See abhorrent's "certain lifestyle" comment above as a good example.

But this is also about gender, which is primarily cosmetic: when you meet someone on the street, you don't take a DNA test before you decide whether to say "hello, sir" or "hello, ma'am".

Ultimately, the final assignment is still based on genetics.  What really matters is the sex-determining region of the Y chromosome; if you have that, you're male, regardless of extra chromosomes.  The only thing that trumps that is receptor mutations that result in androgen insensitivity, which results in female development regardless of the presence of the SRY.

I also don't ask to inspect their genitals before saying "hello sir/ma'am".

MassAsster: Man, that is one ugly...  what ever it is...


From the kick-in-the-box-starter webpage:

Here is a breakdown of the costs: Travel to/from Thailand, (NYC-Bangcok, $2,000), At the Supbon clinic in Chonburi, Thailand: Sexual Reassignment Surgery ($18,000), Facial Feminization Surgery ($28,000), Surgery fees include hospital stay, 7 nights after SRS, 5 nights after FFS.  Hotel in Thailand, $50/night for 30 additional nights (6 weeks total recovery time, $1500), Food/Travel within Thailand ($3,000).  TOTAL: $77,500

So ripping your junk off ($18k) is only part of the cost. There's also $28k in "purtying it up" costs, so if you're really offended by the ugly, I guess you could donate and help fix that.

Although as far as I'm concerned, "So I thought I'd go to some craphole third-world country and get a bunch of surgery done" seems like the kind of thing that should have been included in that SNL "Bad Ideas Jeans" commercial.

That would be a pretty weird alternate universe to wake up in. I'm not saying I wouldn't like it, just that it'd be pretty weird. Might make those business meetings where they go, "Let's go around the table and introduce ourselves" a lot more interesting.

Could be a mental illness that is indulged rather than treated, mostly due to fashionable societal trends.
How many doctors could you find to chop off your arm if you decided you really, really felt like you weren't supposed to have arms? None.
On the other hand, if you say you want to get your dick chopped off because you can't accept reality, well, out come the knives!
