You're irrational. Anyone using the term "phobia" to describe human behavior needs to get educated in behavioral science and the semantic discipline.

 

I almost got a psychology degree and i'm wating for your clarifying on this...

I think all trannies should be burnt and pissed on.

You may genuinely not believe this, but I hope you know what a terrible human being you are for posting such a vitriolic, abhorrent sentence.

You don't have the faintest clue what you're talking about, do you? 'Phobia' perfectly describes the irrational and hateful responses people have towards certain groups.

 

I think that, from my point of view, op is confusing 2 different terms. There's phobia in the context of psychopathology, wich is identifiable by DSM criteria: something that causes high suffering to someone or people arround, impossibilitates that someones objectives, has deep cultural implications, etc...

This "phobia" in psychopathology context is not to be confused with the term phobia meaning "aversion to. Transphobia is not necessarly a psychopatology, it is rather a term to describe aversion towards trans...

I think it's funny as hell, and the skirts with dick bulges are a nice touch; great art!  

And I have to agree with the previous commenter that anything that pisses of Progressive c*ntwads is a good thing.

As a gay man, trannies are weird as sh*t and creep me out. Ever met one? I've met plenty, and they're a lot different irl.

Stop stereotyping. Seriously that's no better than Christians labelling all gays as perverts.
Odious behaviour.


^^^ has never met one.

Has no one noticed the tranny flight attendant in GTA SA? It was way more subtle and less offensive than this.

When I was 17 I was caught on all fours, panting and wearing a dog collar (Im Trans-species BTW, the species I identify with is canine)

 

It was awkward to say the least.

 

Fortunately my mother didn't see or hear the porn I was watching at the same time.

 

Oh, FYI I am not attracted to dogs, I am a dog.

GTA, like South Park, holds the belief that no subject is off limits to make jokes out of. I find it quite hypocritical that people are happy to laugh at jokes targeted at other subjects, but then take offence when they happen to touch on something that affects them.

How is putting a tranny in GTA V "transphobic"?  What about this indicates a "fear" of transsexuals?  Seems like it just adds to the realism and atmosphere.  In my city there are certain neighborhoods where they are quite visible.  And no, they don't look like women and they don't look like men.  They look like trannies.  "Hate speech"?  LMAO.

We don't even know if those ARE transsexuals/transgendered persons..

 

They could just be males in drag, in which case, many drag queens look exactly like that.

 

Edit: Aight I looked it up and they actually are transgendered people.

 

Still doesn't matter since all GTA characters are parodies of the worst aspects of a group's stereotypical behaviors. Everything bad a Republican has ever said about a Democrat is exactly what the Democrats are in the game, and vice-versa. Transgendered people aren't exempt..

 

Look at Jimmy. He's a 20 something year old rich obese white kid, with no job, doesn't go to school, smokes, drinks, plays Call of Duty all day and trolls people on the internet for fun.

 

It's kinda funny how when it's "strippers","feminists", "hookers" and "transgendered people" it's unacceptable hate, but when it comes to making fun of "self-entitled lazy gamers", "politicians", "celebrities", "rednecks", "corrupt police" it's hilarious satire.

 

Why are some targets acceptable and others aren't?

 

Oh right, because "equality". "We're equal, so we have the right not to be made fun of in a game that makes fun of everybody."

 

I understand completely.

Because Jimmy's traits are not desirable. He's epitomises a supercilious 20 year old who has accomplished nothing yet has an inflated ego.

Trans people on the other hand are marginalised people who receive a lot of abuse daily worldwide and shouldn't be victimised to this level of demonisation and derision.

I never knew there was so many homosexual individuals here.. Not that its a bad thing. But f*ck... The only thing I like about homo erotica is yaoi furry. Seeing 2 naked guys from jersey shore docking each other makes me nauseous.

That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life.

 

I also want to point out that you only know that THOSE particular characters are transgendered because they say so. How do you know there aren't other transgenedered NPCs in the game that act like normal NPCs? (Normal being something like complaining that they didn't get a movie part even after sleeping with the director, because it's a GTA game.)

 

You could never know, so this parodying a small subset of transgendered people who may or may not dress up in loud colors and complain about the pills not working isn't a sleight to ALL TRANSGENDERED PEOPLE EVERYWHERE THAT EVER LIVED.

 

But you know, whatever, carry on with completely missing the point of the characterization of people in the GTA universe. I'm done trying to explain to people why that line of thinking is stupid as sh*t.

At the end of the day there guys dressing up in women's cloths! Those that have operations will never be women no matter how hard they try. All they will be is a mutilated man and that's just fact. We spend most of our time being told we can't change what we are, and we accept people for being gay bi or straight which is fine. Trannys want to go completely against that theory, that's why they will allways be ridiculed. Not to mention how can anything be funny with out making fun of something/someone. Are you also going to say Trevor is not fair due rednecks or we should never laugh at anything Franklin says because that's how they talk in the hood and they can't help talking that way? Get a life

So because transfolk get abuse, that makes them more desirable?

Hillarious, needs more.

 

As a gay man with several trans friends I'm absolutely fine with this, as would my trans friends be.

I have a sense of humour, my friends have a sense of humour and so do Rockstar apparently. This series is full of satire, I couldn't understand if people were offended by it.

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

But don't you think targeting a group that is severely marginalised is indefensible?

 

As I said, it's a satirical world. Rockstar isn't targeting individuals, they're targeting everyone. I take it as seriously as I take publications such as The Onion and the Daily Mail.

You know what'd be cool? If people stopped being offended on behalf of others. If you are a transgender, and you're offended that a video game is mocking you, you aren't going to survive in the real world.

I don't get all uppity because Family Guy portraits Brits as having hook noses and giant teeth, I don't get offended that black comedians laugh about how uptight white people are, and I certainly don't get offended by people mocking a decision that I took, so why the hell would a tranny get offended that GTA jokes about men who want to be women? Should we stop making fun of everything because somewhere, someone could be offended? 

That image is funny, it's a guy who wants to be a woman but looks nothing like one. Trevor was just as convincing in his dress.

If you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at? Long live GTA's satire, mocking and downright piss taking of everything and everyone.

Trannies disgust me. There's a reason why they're called traps. You dont know that you're f*cking a man till it's too late. I'm not joking, I madeout with and almost had sex with a man in thailand 11 years ago. He looked just like a she.

 

And the rest of the LGB community hates transexuals too. I work for a company that forced me to hire 'sexual minorities' on my team. Trannies are the reason we lost our contracts.

If you don't like it, don't play it.

 

Get over it, it's a game.

 

Stop complaining on the internet. If you were really that bothered, do something about it.

i still fail to find what's so f*cking offensive about there being a tranny in the game....what am i looking for in the picture?

 

is rockstar supposed to ignore the fact that 99.9 percent of "trans" are completely hideous and look nothing like real women?

Offensive....

 

Well, I don't like to offend people, and it would be disgusting if Rockstar only mocked trans people.

 

But they don't.

 

They mock homophobes, gays, religious people, Frenchmen, Americans, black people, whores, criminals, men, women, white people, chinese people...

 

And not only that, but the whole series portray people of all sorts as stereotypes.

 

 

The problem with attitude is people that doesn't understand wrong from right and have this attitude.

 

It's people like the one quotes below that makes me worried and give gamer's a bad name.

 

 

I think all trannies should be burnt and pissed on.
