Evidence Please Anonymous, I understand the Bruce bits are still attatched and that casts serious doubt on the validity of the makeover.
One swallow and all that even if it is a male, btw what is the gender designation for a male swallow?

Gender, fellow internet user, is not by any means designated by the genitalia you were born with. That, is the person's sex. While your sex as male or female is a biological fact which is the same in any culture, what that sex means in terms of gender roles as a 'man' or a 'woman' in society can be different across different cultures. These 'gender roles' have an impact on the health of the individual. I'm not an expert, considering I'm not wanting to change my gender and don't know an awful lot about it, but, i'm sure there's plenty of information regarding this on the internet. Perhaps a Google search would do you some good - maybe educate yourself on this topic a bit more. Also, the fact that the "bruce bits" - as you called them - may still be attached, does not invalidate the transition at all. Thing is - you're not going to tell Caitlyn what gender she is. Caitlyn is going to tell you what gender she is.

Anon 2, Gender is absolutely designated by the genitalia you were born with, by the technically accurate means of dictionary definition, the state of being male or female. At your own admission it's factual and measurable difference between people. Another meaning of the word, a new one, defines things differently, based on how you feel or what you want to be labeled, but what you're saying is factually incorrect.

All this choosing gender, choosing race stuff is BS though. We're all humans, and we can be who we want to be without having everyone else call us a title we want. Some people are going to deny your wishes or be rude to you about your choices no matter what you do; whether it's xenophobic gay bashers, loony lefties who can't accept a viewpoint being held if it isn't their own, or just someone who's angry or jealous. Focusing on those people, and not just doing you, is only going to make you bitter and unhappy.
