  2. Cue Transphobic comments accusing all Trans people of being homophobic and should be separated from the LGB community in 3...2...1....

  4. Moz's is the first troll to post a Transphobic comment in this thread. Kudos.

  9. tyler

    please explain how having a vagina is male

    I did say if has had surgery to have a cosmetic penis then cool

    Posted by: Moz's | Jun 23, 2014 3:10:53 PM

  10. I'm as trans friendly as you can get but MALES have PENISES...FEMALES have vaginas

    male =/= man
    female =/= woman

    I'm for everyone but stop trying to be illogical about it all. If you have a vagina you are NOT a MALE.

  11. I have vagina envy.

    Posted by: Kevin | Jun 23, 2014 3:22:15 PM

  12. if he/ she has not had the surgery for a cosmetic penis then the other contestants technically have a case to sue the contest for awarding someone with a vagina

  13. You know, MOZ'S, we have agreed on some topics on this blog. We don't agree here.

    If a Transman (or Transwoman) tells you how they want their gender status to be recognized--well, why not give them that respect or courtesy. What's the problem?

    This week is Gay Pride Week in New York City. I wish I could be there again, but some drunks (like me) have heat intolerance --so I AINT going (it's always hot humid the last Sunday in June in New York City). But there will be many MANY Transgender folk there. They played (and are playing) a crucial role in civil rights for LGBT people. Give them the respect that they have earned.

  14. ""does this dude identify as gay?"

    @Ryan: Yes, he does.

    @Moz's: Don't be ridiculous. The contest only asks that the entrants self-identify as gay and be residents of the Philadelphia region. They have no rule that they be must have a penis or even that they be male. It's no more your business (or the audience's business) whether he has a penis than it is your own boss' business whether you're circumcized or what size your balls are.

  15. I believe that he will be donating all of his winnings to the National Organization for Marriage to fight marriage equality.

  16. Hey, I thought Little Kiwi was out of here. I guess he fails at everything, even a dramatic exit. Anyway, who are we kidding. Since he has no job and no life, what else does he have to do but come here and desperately try to put a good face on transgenderism?

    BTW, if there are any videos of Little Kiwi getting busy with a "transman" they should be sold in drug stores. Better than ipecac syrup to induce vomiting!

  17. Derrick From Philly, I have no problem with transgenders or with recognizing their selected gender. I have a big problem with them telling gay people that we have to identify with them. I have a big problem with trans activists attacking lesbians and gay people and trying to take over their organizations, even while they keep their own segregated groups for themselves. I have a big problem with telling gay and lesbian young people that they are inextricably linked with transgenderism. I am not going to lie to gay youth in order to uphold an ideology.

  18. Can't wait for a neutrois to win! Neutrois are a vital part of the transgender community. They demand the right to be castrated! Transgenders are totally not mentally ill, y'all!

  19. Rick, (AKA Fake Tyler):

    If you're going to post as me, you can't do it in a thread where I've already made pro-Trans statements. I keep telling you this. If your goal is to impersonate me, you gotta try a little harder. You're losing your troll edge.

    People who are prejudice against Trans people can't be persuaded with logic. Moz's is an example. It's just not worth it to try. These trolls revel in their ignorance and don't wish to be shown the light.

    Trans people will continue to win cultural advancement and recognition despite the bigots (including the gay male bigots who seemed extremely threatened by bucking traditional gender norms). And those mentally ill bigots who feel threatened by it will either shut up and get lost or be isolated by their hatred.

  20. @ Derrick

    it matters for the contest since they don't allow lesbians to run for "MR" gay Philadelphia

    If Lou has had surgery then more power to him but if he still has a vagina then he is isn't a he yet

    Tyler, take your meds

  21. Not normally a fan of sleeve tattoos but in this case I'd make an exception. He's cute.

    Posted by: Icarus | Jun 23, 2014 5:19:45 PM

  22. He's so damn adorable. Can't. stop. looking. at. him! *SWOON*

    Posted by: Little Kiwi | Jun 23, 2014 5:34:04 PM

  23. Good for him, but against the others who competed Lou is just not attractive. Seems like a progressive choice - just and only because its a progressive choice.

    Posted by: Anthony | Jun 23, 2014 5:34:53 PM

  24. i think he's hot. what we're seeing in here is the usual - gay men who are upset that this trans man is not merely more MAN than they'll ever be, but he's WAYYYYYY hotter, too.

    woof to him. and a tiny sad violin playing the saddest song in the world for all the bitter jealous haters :D

    Posted by: Little Kiwi | Jun 23, 2014 5:41:29 PM

  25. Gross.
