[fritz is just gay for attention.]

but seriously, calling DCS a man just because she hasn't gotten sexual reassignment yet is pretty much just being a dick, no matter how much you're going to say "but I'm so confuuuused! T_T It's okay because I use a third term that is neither 'he' nor 'she' isn't that non-offensive?"

Why can't you people just call DCS "Simpson" like I do?

DCS more readily flows off my tongue in casual conversation. Also probably has to do with during his 'tenure' with us as a posting member of the forum, his username was DCSimpson, and as such, as my username will occasionally be shortened to FC, his was shortened to DCS.

and if I actively believed it wasn't being touted for a display of attention, I wouldn't care! Natasha, for example, is someone where I will use the female inflection for from time to time (not all the time as I was friends with said person long before that became standard, so I slip in and out of it). That said, though, I feel the same towards those who -are- "gay" for attention or "emo" for attention. My thoughts are if you want attention, do something -notable-, impress me, or help me, or ask for legitimate help on something. Just actually DO something! (like, when DCS was so infuriated during the 2004 elections, crying out that if Bush was re-elected, he felt so strongly against him that he would move to Canada. Whatever you're personal political beliefs are, if he actually did that, you would HAVE to admire his convictions! Instead, Bush won, and woops! didn't expect that! He never intended on following through with that, but he never thought that Bush would win, so it was an empty promise/threat.)

I don't need a boy crying wolf.

Yeah but you said that you were calling DCS a he because (s)he hadn't gone through with the operation yet which is pretty disrespectful to other transgenders who haven't done that yet (or don't plan on it)

If DCS was so serious on people not calling it he then it wouldn't have switched back and fortch thus confusing every one.

Its not a personal insult to call DCS he. It is being technical and the English language doesn't have a gender neutral pronoun that works well with people. Personally I think when I was refering to him as it it the first paragraph it was worth as it implies she isn't even human.

ehh... I'm only bugged by DCS because of other things, not because when she came out for the first time, people were so mean to her that she actually tried retracting her transgenderism.


If someone came out that they were gay, and then everyone gave them shit about it, to the point that they told them that he wasn't sure anymore, and that for the time being he guesses he's just still straight again, and then later becomes confident enough to readmit to being straight, would you complain that he's just being confusing? Why do the same for DCS and her transgenderism? Just because she's DCS, and has earned our scorn for other reasons.

.... yeah, alright, I'll agree that is the case, so for that generalization, I do apologize. That said, I firmly stand beside my comments on DCS as a whole.

*edited out second section* -P. F.

I do remember the LJ thread where the announcement was first made. The majority of posters were supportive, and anyone not, DCS made it clear that he didn't care what their thought was, that it was his life and that he had to express himself how he felt.

What gets me is how there is no nod to the fan art. DCS, stop plagiarizing this art.
I KNOW I WAS THINKING THAT TOO.
It actually pisses me off a lot that HE did that. I really wonder what the original artist thinks about it...
I have to say I wonder that too. I wasn't aware that he hadn't got the operation. Although, what confused me the most was how in hell could he have afforded such an operation considering the time he spent drawing a webcomic that had a small but dedicated fanbase at the time. I'm sure he actually has a line of work, although as I've never cared for blog reading I'm really not sure what he does (I normally say she but now that I know he hasn't had the operation, he is biologically a man, gay or otherwise).

I don't understand why you quoted that post for your response >___>


(and it's still insensitive to assert that someone doesn't get to be the gender they identify with just because they haven't had a sex reassignment)

We could try "The artist formally known as Simpson" or
Tafkas (Tahff-Kahzuh) for short.

I still prefer the old DCS. Back where DCS was still a "man" more than the whiny "woman" we have today.

It's actually interesting to see people so absorbed by this to keep the conversation alive. My own stance has been indifferance mostly. I don't doubt that there have been other people who were way more outlandish and open about gender change. I think some people here feel inclined to comment because Dana was a person that was, in some way, part of their daily lives.
