How is this hard?
Reading your edit just makes you a big asshole.
Alternatively, vocal surgery exists, but it's a very expensive gamble with no guarantees that it'll sound good, and you run the risk of losing your voice permanently.
I didn't find it difficult to refer to her as a girl at all. Maybe I'm just more tolerant of transgender people that I don't find someone who chooses to identify themselves as their gender identity shocking.
-eh nevermind, I've given Against Me! enough shit-
Short term memory much? Or do you just prefer to ignore what you say once you've been called on it?
So male is somebody with a penis correct? Or is him with somebody with a penis?
Ok so I'm assuming its alright to call him a male, instead of him then right?
Ok, so he cannot sing very good.
You mention their biological sex if you are explicitly referring to their biological sex, like for example if you are a doctor and their biological sex is relevant. Or if you are stating that a trans women who had a sex change used to biologically be a man.
It's very rude to refer to the person themselves as their biological sex if it is to the contrary of their gender identity and if you are aware of that fact.
Who fucking cares holy shit.

UH OH YOU GOT ME DANG IT
It just takes some getting used to. Once you're more comfortable with it tgism really isn't that big of a deal.
Let us do what we will, we shouldn't have to torture ourselves because we should be "men" or "women".
However, I felt this way my entire life, so maybe I should put a little more effort into it?
You know what? I'm not going to get mad, because I know you're just trying to troll. Or maybe you are bigoted as fuck in which case I can deal with that. You are obviously a very unintelligent person who needs help.

Also, how the fuck is that transphobic? Out of all the awful things I've said in this thread, you picked the one where I'm simply explaining how pronouns work?
Here, this is a better example:
I'd say that clucker guy deserves something.
Mind coming up to Canada for a bit? I'll make sure you're really accommodated for.
I would prefer people seek counseling than immediately default to a trans-gender operation.
I mean, maybe it's not always the case, but every transgendered person I've met had major, major psychological trauma in their past.
In fact I'd rather get my life sorted out.
In fact I'm not even allowed to get an operation until I'm 18.
Yes, you are transphobic. You're scared that you might not be able to grasp the concept, so you channel that fear into hatred, all of your type do that.
If anything I'm against mephobic.
The most acceptable way is to call the person as what they feel like being called. I mean, why not? If you had business with the person which somehow critically depended on the biological features they have, I understand somewhat more pragmatic naming would make sense.
But as long as you are somebody just talking about someone else, please, do them the courtesy and call them the way they want to be called.
If I knew somebody that was transgender, then I would definitely respect them and refer to them as they would want. And I'm sure almost everybody here would too. It's human nature for most people to still consider him a man, and refer to them as such, especially on the internet. This isn't a thread about the correct way to refer to somebody transger though, so everybody just chill out. Every thread ever about somebody that is transgender turns into this argument. It's pointless and stupid.
