I think I scare them when I go "hobby-gay" on them... (that's quite fun, that is))

Laser get the first pick, and chooses some of the sexiest girls. MDX get some of those as well, I get the goth/punk ones (which are too freaky for Lasboy and MDX, and really anybody else except for Valentine and Kasumi,

I think we have a mix of the term sexy. When I see sexy, I see a girl wear baggy trou (pants, for americans); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES New Rocks, punkyfish top and fishnet and half a ton of accessories including arm warmers and possibly a trucker cap.

In other words, If I'm picking first, the punk chicks are mine! And most of the goths. I'll let you have a few of the goths, 'cos I'm generous (Share the wealth, eh? :P)


"hobby-gay" means acting gay for a laugh, yeah? Cos I do that. 'Tis fun.

But i'm totally open too. Takes a lot of freak me out (I think the only things to freak me would be bloodletting and anything necrophilic). I have friends who are transgendered and it does fuss me at all, they're nice people so their friends - that's all that matters.
I have considered going TV many times, 'cos girls clothes are so much cooler.
I also know loads of gay people - I've been to a Furmeet and I think I was the only straight guy in the room of 70+. I was fine, I even played general at furry-human chess (and won ;D). Only until two guys surrounded me and blatently chatted me up did I start wondering how to get out... But the Furs I know well are totally cool people.

As Eddie Izzard says: "If they wana be homophobic, tha'ts alright, as long as they're homophobic behind closed doors and don't hurt anyone then it's fine."

As to being transgender, a sex change is a pretty traumatic thing to go through.  Basically you loose everything and are reborn as a woman, and even then ther'es troubles.

Like hormones don't affect voice or hair.  And of course, the general attatude that society has towards the transgendered.. (it's a sad fact that a good 75% of transgendered individuals will comitt suicide. )

No, I'm not looking to go through it, but some people in my life have and/or are going to go through with it.

I'm sorry if this makes y'all uncomfortable.  It's just something that's affected me and a couple very close people.


You can swing to the other side and still like girls. Sex change would probably be a painful experiance though! o.0
Wow, you guys know your stuff :D The figure for suicide is *quite* lower than that, though ;) There IS no actual figure for that, though. Most successful trans people simply disappear into society.

If I had been born a girl, my name would be Angelica. Or so my mother tells me. I would probably wear baggy, ordinary clothes, to separate those who really like me from those who only like my body. In fact, I don't think I'd be much different if I were a girl. :p I'm hardly a "manly" or "macho" guy.

And I think I'm very open, myself. I don't like it when people judge you for who you are.

I'm told that if I was a boy my mum would name me, and if i was a girl my dad would. My dad wanted to call me Sarah Louise, which I think is really cool and better than my male name.

I don't think I dress much different either. The trousers wouldn't change but i'd wear more than just t-shirts on top. Oh, and tartan skirts too... :)

I'm told if I was a girl my name would be Michelle. My name is Michael. Same with my brothers, Nicholas to Nicole, Christopher to, uh, I think it was Cassandra. >_>

Gee, my parents are creative with names.

*I'm* going to name *my* kid Jesus Christ Hitchcock.

Somehow I don't think anywhere would let you register your kid with that name.



PS Alternative girls names for Christopher: Christine, Christina, Chrissie, Christie, Christiana

Isn't it Siobhan? Or is that the equilavent of Saemus (or however they spell James in Irish)?

I was thinking more along the lines of Child Rights. I think the social services would be on to you. I think it' considered as cruelty to give names like that.

Ok, then, what's the feminine version of "Benjamin" Because that's my name.. :P

And gods, it's so reassuring to know you guys aren't going to dog on me for something that I can't control anyway.  I'm not flaming, I don't mean to hurt any of you and you accept that.

BTW, I'm about 90% hetro.  There are just a couple of guys in my life that have supported me through some very tough times and that I've grown attached too.

*takes a deep breath*  This is also somethign I haven't shared with many people, but I am transgendered.  I do not want to have a sex change, but I do (For various reasons) Wish that I was born female.

I'll not get into the messy details if it's not wanted.  The story is pretty agnsty, but it boils down to I think I would've been happier born a woman.  

If anyone has any honest questions about this part of me, ask.  I will share how I feel as long as the questions are genuine and not intended to offend.


If I had my choice of names as a female, I think I'd go with Angelita.  She's one of the characters I play online in a roleplaying environment and I've grown rather attached to her.

I'm only one, but still I am one.  I can't do everything, but I can do something-

Hehe, you're not the only one. I've been in the trans scene (at least online, but sometimes offline) for almost five years. I've been on medication for two years now as well ;)
