Oct 15th 2010 2:50PM Are you serious? The scientific evidence that transgenderism is a medical condition is even more widely available and understood than is the scientific evidence on humans being born with their sexual orientation. Having a pure XX or XY set of chromosomes is nice, but it isn't *that* rare for there to be variations. It doesn't even need to be a full extra chromosome, but something knocked off the second X or added to the Y. Have you ever actually had a chromosome count? I doubt it, somehow; it's not your usual activity at the doctor's office. Go try it, maybe you'll be surprised.
Beyond that, the disparity between biological and neurological recognition of a person's gender is widely known in scientific fields. In some cases a person can be aware of their gender as one thing which their body doesn't reflect. You can say whatever you like about 'biology' but at the end of the day, biology and a person's biological makeup is a lot more than the junk in their trousers. I doubt you go up to a person and grab hold of their crotch to see if someone is a male or a female. No, generally we look at how a person overall looks, how they act, and how they present themselves. Because there's a lot more to gender than whether they're an 'innie' or an 'outie.' Please be aware of actual biology concerning gender issues before spouting your mouth off about something you quite clearly don't understand.

Michael McConnohie does the voice for the Lich King, not for Arthas. Two different voices
Also, Michael has been doing voice work for Blizzard for a long time, and was the original Kel'thuzad (in WC3) and was replaced as Kel'thuzad in WoW, but retained his role as Uther the Lightbringer which has only ever been played by him.
He has a very big range.
Non-union actors can work on union projects - that's a common misperception which unions don't bother to correct unless specifically asked, so he could still do voices.
