That picture is so disturbing on so many levels.

mplsbohemian - 2007-05-02: 11:01:00
Um, oy, that must have come off so transphobic. :\

About the picture... I have received a suggestion that this young lady's allegiances are less than clear, so I have prepared an alternative portrait. Please see: Being Clear About our Allegiances. Thanks ~ James

Yikes!! the options are even more disturbing - pretty soon she'll look like Chewbacca

It appears as if this wampeter definitely needs a waxing!
