Assholism on teh Intarwebs

Get a load of this asshole.

Not that I want to give him more credit/attention than he deserves, but man, what an asshole. I consider myself an admirer of Poppy, and while I would never have actually gone out of my way to respond to this flake, I certainly don't begrudge Poppy for sticking up for hirself. Also, I love Pega's comment.

Dude! See, I was confuzzled by the whole "Melissa" thing because I had no idea of Poppy's birth name. But, yeah.

I mean, I know transgenderism can be hard for people who are happy in their bodies to wrap their heads around (I once had a GM just a little freaked that I pulled off playing a FTM transgendered character so well and worried that he'd discovered some Deep Dark Secret), but it doesn't give you the right to make assumption or be rude and disrespectful.

I mean, I still stumble with the whole pronoun thing with the one transgendered person I know in Real Life because, despite the guy clothes and masculine mannerisms, he still looks female. But I make an effort to respect his preference (and got dissed for correcting someone for it once, too-- so, yeah, that whole "The body is female, therefore that's a woman and a 'she' so get over it" thing is familiar to me).
