Hey guys, if this thread continues in discussion of factions, it's going to be locked and archived. It's just faction bashing at this point with no constructive criticism, just pointless opinions to flame at factions they don't agree with. Continue with other topics.

People that max zoom cameras to have eagle vision are idiots. I see both cops and criminals abuse this and I lose brain cells everytime. Huge p2w mentality. I'm surprised nothing is done about that considering it's abused fairly often.

Make transgender RP the rarest sight of RP in Gta World's history.

You could call out the people that portray these people in a negative light.

I don't want to be this one snowflake so please don't take this reply as such, I'm not a SJW or crazy on the opposite side of the spectrum but I am honestly fucking sick and tired of it too. Trans characters get the same treatment that trans people do in real life - someone in the loud minority of the LGBT community does some stupid shit, like saying that for some reason trans people need rainbow or trans-flag-colored sidewalks to walk on, otherwise they will not survive properly, and everyone flips their shit. 

To further prove that I am not going anywhere crazy with this, I wanna state that I do not associate myself with the LGBT community for this reason, a lot of other people who are gay, trans etc. also do not associate themselves with that community. There are some good things they do as a community, and a lot of dumb shit that they do which I will not call them out for because that would completely derail the topic and get me convicted of multiple hate crimes. This post is not my opinion about that community and I do not wish to indulge in any further conversations about it, just stating my position.

 

It has to be said that trans characters are indeed, sometimes, roleplayed by idiots who do not do their research of what goes into transitioning. Does everyone do this? No.

 

There are people who roleplay normal, everyday people but they happen to be trans. With jobs, with partners who do they do not cheat on, with careers and decent jobs. The problem also lays on both sides of the spectrum. And I will prove it to you in my next point. I really want to prove a point and I apologize for this not being an unpopular opinion but more of a fact, but it has to be said.

I literally live in the worst county for LGBT people in the EU - Poland. And I am trans. And hear me out... I get less harassment, gossip, weird looks from people when they realize I'm not "real" than I do on GTA World as a trans character. This is not to say that trans characters are often victimized or bullied, but you do see massive amounts of people who just talk shit about them for absolutely no reason and avoid them like the plague.

This comes back to what I said earlier - people not doing their research and roleplaying stereotypical, bland, overly sexualized and perfect characters. Lesbians have already been destroyed by this, now trans people get destroyed because more and more people are aware of the fact that "holy fuck trans people exist lol".

 

Certain people on GTAW have gone as far as to propose that trans characters should be put behind applications. I think putting anything behind an application is the most retarded move you can make, so let's not do that. Let's call out people who roleplay these bad characters and report them. And do not report them because they are offensive, I can tell you on behalf of trans people in real life, we do not give a fuck about these characters being offensive, we have more serious shit to figure out lmao. Report them for breaking rules - portrayal, realism, but also for being unfit for our community and roleplaying something that is a walking stereotype.

 

Unfortunately, transitioning is often very ugly, it has a massive toll on your mental health, it is an extremely long process and in the end it might not produce the proper results you wanted in the first place. The chances for very specific things to go wrong with you during transitioning are slim, but never zero. And these sometimes are not properly roleplayed by people, everyone is the perfect trans chick with nothing in particular sticking out until they happen to whip a pair of male genitals out. Working male genitals too, despite the character being on hormones that kill erections and sperm in the majority of trans women, especially when you're at that phase of it where you have the looks you wanted (multiple months or years). I dunno about trans dudes because I have honestly never seen a trans man on this server as a character, but they probably get shit too.

 

I want to avoid talking about this on any deeper level, because someone might get triggered, but it literally HAS to be said. Not even to soften the harsh treatment that these characters get, but I feel like this has to be said because actually decent trans characters deserve some recognition in our community.

 

Lastly, my unpopular opinion: trans characters getting IC harassment or hate is real and roleplaying someone who has prejudice against them is totally fine and realistic. Stop pretending like this server is an utopia, it's the same shithole real life Los Angeles is. You might get away with being trans because the state is progressive as hell, but someone will still spit next to you and call you the f-word. But also stop avoiding these characters only because some retard has ruined their reputation for you. Roleplay with them, treating them how your character normally would, if they show signs of being a dumbfuck, /report. End of the thread.

 

TL;DR: I agree and I hate to agree. Trans characters get shit just how trans people do in real life, good job GTA World, you destroyed lesbians, now you will destroy the trans folk too. This isn't said totally seriously, the fact that people roleplay walking stereotypes doesn't somehow ruin my personal life, but it is sad to see.

There is a HUGE... HUGE difference between people portraying a transgender woman. And people living out their FUTA femdom 10/10  trans characters fantasy. Just go on quickdate, put the gender on transgender and read some of these profiles. You'll see things ranging from "I'm a nine inch queen" to "I'm bigger than your boyfriend, DM me". You can't exactly make an RPQM report based upon a social media profile alone. Unfortunately, 90percent of the trans characters are exactly this. 

 

Thus, it is definitely more of an OOC problem rather than an IC one.

Going into peoples driveways and fining their legally parked cars with insurance violations while they are asleep makes you a clown, you're not providing them roleplay, you're just being a goon. Touch grass.

 

 

Also, needing to call the fire Marshals when you open a businesses is an unenjoyable overly bureaucratic process. @ me if you actually had fun placing 15 fire extinguishers in your property, filling out a form, and waiting a week for these guys to show up. If Fire Marshals did not exist the server would be a better place. 

 

I'd pay taxes to not have Fire Marshals.

I don't know if you're talking about me, but if you are, I was pretty clear and purposeful when I said hermaphrodites, not transsexuals, and did not mention transsexuals anywhere on my topic.

 

To add-on, transsexual/hermaphrodite roleplay is highly sexualized and fetishized on this server. I don't think people are becoming aware or are shocked that transsexuals exist (we have a large NA population that most likely have interacted with transsexuals before), but overly-sexual characters are nooby, and fetishizers go for characters like lesbians and transsexuals, and as a result people don't want to interact with them.

 

Who specifically has roleplayed a transsexual decently in your eyes?

how are you going to tell people to touch grass when you're playing the same game as them

 

 

Because objectively some people don't know how to play the game.

It wasn't you specifically, it's just a dumb idea over all to put anything behind an application.

Also plus one on the Fire Marshals, I hate them with a passion.
