    I am a proud transgender, and I noticed a complete lack of choice when selecting my gender. I find this offensive in this day in age and it promotes division, segregation, and intolerance in a world that should be beyond that. My people have endured hard life struggles to get where we are and this is a complete lack of understanding. Why do you keep promoting these injustices, teaching kids that we are not people just like them?? We don't have a place here? Its for you people only??? Do you guys support racism here, cause thats the vibe I am getting. Is there a black only forum, a white only forum etc????

    I think this is a major issue that needs to be addressed, especially for young children here struggling with their sexual identity. This is subtly teaching them that there is something wrong with being transgender and in turn can lead to severe mental instability and depression in the vital teenage years. It's better these kids learn now its ok, instead of tormenting themselves in the closet in fear of being abused or slandered.

    Who can I contact about this?

    Generally, people that are transgendered pick the gender they identify with. Believe me, PC is a very LGBT friendly community, and making you or anyone else that's transgendered feel offended or left out is not the intention. I mentioned having an option for "other" or something similar years ago, but it didn't go through.

    To ask if we support racism and such here is taking it too far. I understand your concerns, but I believe you're overreacting.

      I see you are a very understanding and open minded individual, however I can tell there is some rampant homophobia going on with the powers that be if this was already mentioned and ignored.

      PC actually has a really high population of transgender members, some are even on staff. :(

      You're right, those options should've been updated ages ago. I added more options. Sorry to have offended you.

      ...Rampant homophobia? On PC? You're sadly mistaken. lmao Like I said, this is a very LGBT friendly community.

      Audy's already fixed the issue though, so I'll say no more. But I would advise you not go around saying things like that, or the racism remark. None of that is what we stand for here.

      Yeah. We're as far from homophobic as it's possible to be. Just look at the sexuality polls in the off topic / chit chat forums.

        Well I call it like I see it, and I don't think anywhere in the rules I am not allowed to point out rampant homophobia, and use an analogy like racism seeing as they both are about intolerant bigots too narrow minded to see that everyone is equal.

        Also sydian, I would like to know why you are laughing you a$$ off about such a serious topic

        Your first post here was that we're homophobic and racist. That signals to me that you didn't take the time to even look at the forum before you "called it like you saw it" and you judged a book by its cover. I'm not laughing at the topic, I'm just laughing at how someone could ever call PC homophobic or racist, because we're so far from it. For someone that preaches tolerance, acceptance, and progression, you sure don't act the part.
