Alright, I've tried to say nice things about this, but this is getting a bit ridiculous here. All I've been seeing are half-boiled excuses.I'm assuming that this person is a male that transgendered to female, and is facing trolling from trolls because this person sounds masculine. That's fine. There are workarounds.In-game, you NEVER have to reveal your gender/identity. I've been mistaken as a girl COUNTLESS times on randoms, and that's just because I was in a good mood and wasn't trash-talking about their DPS. And even STILL I get mistaken for a female. (PMS, etc) Just GO WITH IT. I personally don't have a problem because I don't give a flying you-know-what, so if people thinks you're a dude on vent, just play along. Don't cause "unwanted" drama by saying you got a "gender re-roll". It'll just give trolls something to play with.Does that sound like it's wrong for the transgenders? Yes. It's very unfair. But that's how the society's eyes are at the moment, and trolls tend to go to extremes with that chain of thought. However, you can't just waltz out, claim you're something the majority's still not fond of, and expect it to end well.Extreme analogy time. Let's say you are a member of the Scarlet Crusade, and you've been a member since the beginning, so you still have some sense of logic. The people around you are kinda crazy, and hates the HELL out of the undead. Turns out, you caught the plague of undeath one day, and are slowly turning undead, but it stops after a certain point. Would it be wise, when asked by others around you, to say that "I'm half-undead right now" and cause a shitstorm, or just play along and say you're still human?Morally wrong? Sure. I ain't gonna tell you to "suck it up, pansy" either. But now's just not the right time to expose that about yourself.
