And that is another thing everyone Should be Aware of: I AM A FEMALE SOUL, and I Prefer to be referred to by the Female Pronouns. Any address of "Sir", or "Man" upon me, will only be met by a cold shoulder or stare in their general direction.
Chris, I don't believe you. Now, this may be strange to anyone who knows me because I am supportive of people's transitions and I believe that misgendering people is an act of violence. However, I don't believe Christian Weston Chandler is transgender in any way, shape or form. Why do I believe this? Because Chris has taken no steps to change his gender identity with the bureaucracy and Chris has continued to identify as a man, even in this post. Whether Chris-chan is on Hormone Replacement Therapy or not is something I don't know (he's never mentioned it), but Chris could have done two things without a therapist's letter. Change his name and change the gender marker on his ID card. He could have done his name change through the courts and he could have just had a GP sign a form to submit to the DMV to have his gender marker changed. Maybe a couple of hours of effort and it would be DONE.
But no, Chris chose not to do this in the long time he's been identifying as a "tomgirl". Nor, it seems, has he taken any action on this checklist to change his identity documents. Chris can't cite money as a concern because he freely pisses his money away on video games and sex toys. When you consider the OTHER major life event happening with Chris now, this seems more motivated by the fact that Chris is afraid of going to prison and finally facing the full consequences for his crimes. Additionally, many transgender people are abused by the prison system, often placed in the wrong prisons (female inmates are placed in male prisons and vice versa) because prisons tend to look at people's genitals instead of looking at who they are.
However, and this is critical, if Chris were to get his shit together and start getting appropriate medical care, he may just be able to skirt going to a male prison. No, seriously, if he were able to save up enough of his "monthly tugboat" to pay for surgery (and in Thailand, this is doable in maybe 6 months... if we include airfare and hotels) and obtain a continuance from the court to pursue a sufficient level of medical treatment, he may be able to avoid this outcome. I seriously doubt this will happen, but it is possible.
Having said that, I want to make clear that it's not right to segregate people based on their genitals instead of their gender. It is unconstitutional and it is incredibly unfair. However, it is the status quo for the correctional system. It is a gross and inhumane standard and it needs to stop.
