Should G@G add a TG gender for new account sign ups? Or should we be allowed to change our gender if we "feel" opposite that day?

I mean I'm confused. It's GIRLS... ask GUYS... right? And vice versa. When you sign up for an account, it asks you for your GENDER. If you say male, you get blue. If you say female, you get pink. This is where infamous Pink Anon and Blue Anon come from.

And I don't give a crap if you were born a girl and want to be a boy scout now.

Should G@G add a TG gender for new account sign ups? Or should we be allowed to change our gender if we
Y'all can flame me with your PC flame throwers all you want, I'm impervious. I used my special snowflake repellent spray. It's kinda like that waterproof stuff you spray your suede leather shoes with ya know?

But seriously, WTF? We've always had catfish here. Many guys and older men pretending to be girls. Now every day, I'm seeing more "trans gender", cross dressing, and/or gay guys, creating new accounts as girls. Openly. Not actually cat fishing, but more daring to show you that they have a female account, but they aren't actually female.

So, should G@G have a Purple Anon for trans people? And if so, do we have to guess which gender they "identify" with? Or are there already designated colors for that?

What color is associated with a male that identifies as female, and vice versa?

Y'all are confusing the hell out of me. I think I need to go back to my safe space where no one can say anything mean to me about this.

OK everyone, I've decided that I don't give a fuck, and I'm closing this question. I never really cared to begin with, I just see the issue as super confusing.

The question was half-ass satirical to begin with, but after reading the answers, I conclude that adding 2 additional categories for "boy that wants to be a girl" and "girl that wants to be a boy", would simplify my G@G life.

PEACE.

  • NO. Either you're born with the XX chromosome or the XY. That's your gender. It goes deeper than your boobs or adam's apple or hair or makeup. It's in the shape and size of your pelvic bone, and you can't change that. Even our skulls are built differently. Can't change that either. Why do we, society, have to change everything for a bunch of people who cannot accept their own selves? When you can change the smoothness of your cranium, the shape of your orbital bones, the width and shape of your pelvis, and your chromosomes, THEN we can talk.

    It's bullshit. This site attracts enough strange characters as it is, and accommodating this kind of thing will only make it worse.

    Where do you buy that special snowflake repellent? I need to get me some of that, too.

  • I personally know a few transgender individuals, and they are all people I'm happy to count as friends. I realize that it's difficult to understand what makes them identify as a different gender. It's a foreign idea to most people. That being said, they want nothing more than to fit in as the gender they identify as, and don't want to provoke or say or do anything that would open them up to harassment or worse from people that for some reason feel threatend by their gender identiy. They aren't catfishing, and I highly doubt they are trolling. I belive transgender perspectives should be welcome here.

    • I get that. But they are confusing the fuck out of me lately. I don't care about catfish. Im used to that. I can usually spot them fairly quickly.

      But this new trend... Im not sure what to make of it

    • Most transsexual people are happy with this system. They just choose the gender they identify themselves as and that's very simple. They either identify them as only a boy or a girl. But it's the gender fluid people who identify themselves as difference genders at difference days.

  • Voted F.

    What I'd actually like is an ability which would obviously be optional since we don't know anyone's gender here, but an ability to add a transgender tag that would show up like other tags (editor mod etc) do.

    Why?

    Because I'd interpret some of their opinions in that context. The whole core of the site is getting male views and female views. The life experiences and mindset of a transitioning woman and a cis woman are quite different. I'm -interested- in both but it's relevant information as much as knowing if people are male and female are.

    There are some topics where I might find their views the -most- insightful (as an example someone who has lived with both female and male testosterone levels might have a -lot- to help all of us understand the other side) but I'd just find t good to know.

    We have one new user who complains they are bigender and want their own category. That seems like snowflake syndrome to me. And it's also a fancy way of saying on issues or dating or sex their views are almost irrelevant.

  • No. After all, a transgender is supposed to go from one gender to the other, therefore they're either male of female, so there's still 2 genders.

    • @DeezNutz33 Well, they're actually one gender, the one the were born, they simply believe they're the opposite gender, or just want to live like the opposite gender. It's not like they ARE the opposite gender.

    • But they are a woman they just happen to be a man or vice versa

  • Isn't this website Turkish based? Doubt they'd ever implement something so stupid. The site is based off two genders something like this simply can't happen. It would be like Chick-Fil-A selling beef in their stores, goes completely against what they are.

If everyone can just shut the fuck up long enough, we can avoid the site going through annoying changes. And if you haven't been here that long, it doesn't take that much to cause one.

      That fact is, it's already happening. And IMHO it will totally change the site as it's not longer really GIRLS asking GUYS.

    • everyone counts. And they always will.

      So... if you're male you're blue and if you're female you're pink.

      Do we need more colors?

      Do we need to change the site name?

    • @cheergirl38139 They could add colors sure... I just don't know how many are beating down the doors of GAG to say HEY can i get my own color? Sometimes we worry about things that others aren't worried about. There would have to be a mass interest to actually make a change.. and we don't work for GAG so we wouldn't know.

  • It defeats the purpose of the site. This site is about comparing guys opinions to girls opinions, or getting advice about the opposite sex. An "other" option can't really fit in there.
    Not to mention if you were able to change your gender on here, people would troll all the time. Or they would change their gender in order to answer the questions that were only set to one.

  • If they feel female but have a penis they're not trying to make fun of the female gender, they just identify as a woman. I don't think accommodating to this level is necessary. I'm not transgender so I don't know how they'd feel about their own icon. I feel like it'd be best to integrate them as normally as possible though. This political correctness is getting intensely high key these days
