    That's not how it works. You don't call people a man if they identify themselves as a woman. You do not refer to someone to their biological sex if you are aware of their GID.
    No, I'll call someone by whatever god damn pronoun I want.

    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 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.
    I don't see how it's human nature. Just about all my friends (because transphobes don't stay friends for long tbh) accept them as their new gender and completely disregard their previous biological sex as a misrepresentation of who they really are.

    No, I'll call someone by whatever god damn pronoun I want.
    So you fully embrace being wrong? Now if only you'll just realise it.

    Isn't this going to mess up their singing voice? Just saying. I'm happy for them, but it could mean some serious changes when it comes to the band.
    Yep, hormone therapy typically changes the voice. I'm not sure to what extent it could do so if he's already at this age though.

    Holy shit, are you literally fucking stupid? Imagine if you had a close friend to you who ultimately decided that they were a girl and for all your lives you were basically friends as how you perceived. Now you're friends with a chick; you don't easily call him a girl. You're obviously so fucking stuck that everyone must go along with what everyone says. I don't give a flying fuck that he chose to be a girl; that's actually great for him because he's doing what he wants to be because he didn't feel he was actually a guy. But it's different when you identified them as a man and all of a sudden that changes.
    My sister, who I have known my ENTIRE LIFE now refers to me as a she after I came out to her.

    Your argument is invalid (and also dumb).

    Yeah, only after you got destroyed for it. I'm yet to be convinced of what you really think.
    I wasn't arguing with anyone over anything, just being a colossal dick, then I felt bad so I started calling her by her preferred gender role.

    Anyway you just quoted the least transphobic post I made. I'm merely trying to help your credibility.

    Only in female to males. Testosterone deepens the voice. Estrogen doesn't affect it much in male to females, they have to work really hard and practice to have a voice that passes.

    Unless of course they take it BEFORE the voice deepens.

    I'm talking about on the internet. When it comes to real life it's obviously different due to having a relationship.

    And it's not like it makes them a bad person anyway.

    People like Clucker and MBB up there are the real ignorant idiots.

    Just because you call her a 'she' doesn't make you not a transphobe. It just makes you scared and trying desperately to justify yourself into a 'moderate' position

    In my defense I did call that black transsexual woman who stabbed a homophobe in self defense a she throughout the entire thread.
    I'm just having a hard time not laughing at the thought of him screaming in his gravelly, broken sounding voice, all buff and tattooed up and wearing a dress, looking like he just stepped out of SNL.

    So it's alright to treat transgenders you don't know badly, but ones you do fine?

    I see quite the opposite. Most trans related news articles have many transphobic comments, while anything related to homosexuality is all positive towards them. Though of course any homophobic posters are usually banned.

    No, I mean quoting my posts that could actually be considered transphobic. I gave you a perfectly good example in my first reply.

    You quoted one where I was explaining how "male" would not work as a pronoun. That's not transphobic, "male" actually doesn't work as a pronoun, believe it or not.

    I think Socram was referring to the fact that a disproportionate amount of FPers are misanthropic or assholes, and that quite a lot of us are surrounded by 'gamer culture' where calling people faggots and racial slurs is prevalent. Maybe not, though.

    that's because most internet posters seem to think that "not opposing gay marriage" makes you the champion of progressive ideals and thus you can say whatever the hell you want no matter how harmful

    That was your latest post at the time, I was replying to all of them indirectly.

    Besides, you've spent most of the thread saying that she's a bad transgender and a bad woman just because she's in a band you don't like. Granted, I haven't heard this band so I dunno if they're actually that bad or not, but does it matter? Bad singer =/= bad person.

    Homophobia and Transphobia, at least in my book, are treated the same here. That's why Jetblack's been banned a number of times for it.

    I get what you're saying. But people like clucker man and MBB are the reason I feel the need to correct people when they refer to a trans person by the wrong pronoun and explain why it is important to refer to them to the correct one.

    How wrong can you be lol?

    Hormones do absolutely nothing about voice. Maybe you should research next time.

    Referring to MtFs here.

    You don't realize how much we go through. Hell training our voice is hard enough.

    Oh well, I know what I do to people like you, I shun them and keep them out of my life.

    Yeah, I can respect that, they just come across as genuine dicks with the whole "I'LL SAY WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT HUR HUR"

    It's just not necessary to have these pages and pages of the same arguement every thread.

    So yeah, I'm heading out. Doubt anythings going to be changing.

    evidently you didn't feel bad enough to consider the possibility that just changing a word by two letters doesn't fix transphobic nature

    You're a good person.

    I'm just saying that I see more people purposefully use the wrong pronoun and generally be pretty disrespectful in trans related articles, than people being disrespectful in a gay related article.

    Didn't mean blatant homophobia or transphobia.

    Well, I never really meant to say she was bad at anything but singing and dressing like a woman. I apologize for any further implications.

    Well it's not always obvious, but I do my best to detect the subtleties. In a way, you could compare persistent use of the wrong pronoun (without overt transphobia) to something like dog-whistle racism.

    Or that the whole transgender thread just happened to start following this thread. Also, people generally talk less about transgender than gays for example so obviously they are discussed more.

    I haven't even seen much hate/joking about sexual differences here.
