You PC dopes can try and spin it all you want, but that's still a man.

Man/woman who gives a fuck. All that matters is this show is going to slay and I will be there. Anyone working at Rough Trade that night, please make sure none of the losers from DIIV are there.

Wow, compare that new song to their first couple of EPs and LP and it's hard to believe they're the same band. There's zero intensity in the boring new shit.

1) "That "anonymous" chickenshit is a subhuman. BARF."

2) "You anonymous BV trolls can try and spin it all you want, but you're still subhuman."

3) "God can you imagine the anonymous fuckheads that endlessly post idiocy about transfolk?"

4) "Puke (And anonymous puke at that.) Yeah, that's pretty much all I've ever been"

5/6) "guy's ass/male ass"...jesus. And I bet you think you're trying to be supportive. Laura Jane Grace is not a guy, or male. She's a transwoman.

Oh, and when are all you dicks talking shit gonna actually put your real names on your posts? I did, but then, I'm a transwoman and proud, and proud of Laura Jane Grace for being the female she knows herself to be.

For everybody who posted intelligently–and I'm not sure if it's two or three–good on ya.

BV's a great musicblog, but most of its commenters are y-front wearing Cheeto-eating dorks living in their parents' basement whose greatest achievement is getting to level 2 on some lame first-person shooter on their PS3s. There's plenty of pornsites where your time'd be much better spent.

@2:23 calm down.

I'm straight and I just checked out the photo from @12:26, and I gotta say it's pretty damn hot no matter which way you slice it. Quit harshing my hard on brother/sister.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2013 2:49 AM

ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2013 2:58 AM

@2:24 no thanks.

Glad you think "it's" hot (yeah, I realize you may be referring to the photo, not Laura Jane), but if you've got a "hard on" to be harshed from that photo (I haven't looked at it–she looks awesome in the photo at the top of the page), you're *not* straight. Welcome to the club!

And I'd use your name, but whattya know...you're "Anonymous" too. Imagine that!

Oh. And I'm NOT your "brother/sister". "Transsister" would be okay. Brother's not.

annagranfors definitely spells woman "womyn" sometimes. We know, we know, out the patriarchy.

They headlined Terminal 5 before that Cult show, Sage Francis opened for them. They also played the Garden with Foo Fighters that same year.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2013 8:10 AM

Glad The Sidekicks are the support. That band is way underrated.

If mime Tyson chips his dick off and takes hormones does that make him a woman? Just trying to understand...

lifeless take on the song. the acoustic EP was miles better

"annagranfors definitely spells woman "womyn" sometimes."

Nope, actually, you're thinking of the type of (some of the) women who run the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival–a brand of feminist that revile transgendered women, too.

"We know, we know, out the patriarchy."

Not sure what you mean here...drag them kicking and screaming out of their closets (and if they support anti-queer legislation, sure! I'm all for that!) or just throw them out. (And sure! I'm all for that, too!)

Bye, (another) Anonymous! (You're all so scared to own your own words...)

"If mime Tyson chips his dick off and takes hormones does that make him a woman? Just trying to understand..."

Here, let me help you with the concept, anonymous. (I mean, Anonymous.) MTF transwomen don't "chop their dicks off". The procedure's called "penile inversion", and I'll keep it simple for you, since I'm guessing you don't do complex very well. The surgeon scoops out all of the junk inside your dick, and pushes the now empty schwanz into the cavity that exists in all men's bodies, and the better surgeons even create a neo-clitoris from the nerves that used to end in the penile glans. (That means "the head of your dick", btw.)

And if mime-er, Mike Tyson knew that his sexual identity was female, not male, yes–that would make him a woman, or transwoman. But I'm pretty sure that Mike's just a dude, albeit a strong dude, which is something that people who post as "Anonymous" are definitely not.

I feel bad for that MAN's kids. Just smh. Damn shame.

annagranfors, you are out of your mind. That 'women' is a father. HE impregnated a woman. Biology trumps your bizare way dealing with your mental isuues. Seek therapy.

But lemme ask you this. If we did a genetic analysis of a male to female switcher, would we see an XX or an XY? Just wondering.

"I feel bad for that MAN's kids. Just smh. Damn shame."

How kind of you, Anonymous #992. Because, yeah, they might get a lot of unwarranted shit from ignorant dopes like you. The smarter ones won't give a damn that the kids' once-father is now their other mother.

AND YOU CAN CAPITALIZE "MAN" ALL YOU WANT. DOESN'T MAKE LAURA JANE A MAN. SHE'S SELF-IDENTIFIED AS A WOMAN, SO, NO. SHE'S NOT A "MAN".

Posted by annagranfors | December 4, 2013 10:29 AM

I self identity as a corgi, therefore I am one.

All the self-identifying in the world will never create a child.

Let us know when you want to rejoin the rest of us in reality.

Anonymous "corgi": we're talking gender identification, not species identification. FAIL.

Anonymous "never create a child": oh, fuck! Two friends of mine (born-male and born-female) can't have a child 'cuz his sperm's not working so well! Should he be ridiculed/have sex reassignment surgery/get a divorce?

You know nothing of reality, dope.

As someone whom identifies themselves as a platter, It's my dream to have pita triangles slowly inserting themselves into my creamy chickpea tan colored center. But what really drives me wild is the idea of a mans hand gently pushing the tip of a baby carrot into my Tahini... Whoa.

11:24 fuck you and your patriarchal size obsession. I self identify as beautiful whether I am robust or not.

...aaand four more Anonymice take the floor only to shit their pants proudly. Although any hummus joke gets at least one or two points.

Here's an idea...why don't you talk about Against Me's music, and not Laura Jane Grace's gender ID? Because your opinions on their music is at least debatable. Your opinions on Laura's gender ID isn't, and shouldn't be.

End of.

Lol, 'it's not debatable because of my feelings'.

Get help.

Annagranfors 12:26pm here. I posted that pic to show all the anti-transgender people that transgender or (in the case of the guy I posted the pic of) transgender-like people are fucking HOT. I would be lying if I said that if this ass

http://images.craigslist.org/00S0S_dZ73qbMqRUd_600x450.jpg

popped up on my bed I wouldn't fuck it cuz I would, fuck that it's a guy, and if that makes me bi so be it. Even a fellow straight guy (2:49pm) says it's hot. So like he said chill and don't include me with the idiots who bash Laura Jane Grace cuz I'm not one of them.

This is what I don't get about the whole transgender thing: the "gender identification" that takes place is mostly superficial. It's guys wearing dresses, make-up or other feminine trappings and girls wearing masculine stuff to, as I see it, indicate that they emotionally and/or psychologically identify in some way(s) more than their actual, physical sex.

So help me out here: let's say a guy identifies emotionally and psychologically as a women, but doesn't adopt the conventional appearance of a woman and continues to dress and groom himself as the physical man he is. Is he still transgender? Help me out here, BV Department of Gender Studies scholars!

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2013 4:42 PM

I just don't want them ruining the ladies' room. Women have rights too. Just because you are trans doesn't mean you get to invade my space. I don't identify as whatever you are, so don't try and identify as what I am, when my identity is based on not being what you are.

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2013 12:40 AM

What if they really have to take a shit, though, and it's about to plop out at any second? I'm talking about a buttcheeks-clenched-tight, shuffle-running down the hallway situation. Would you then allow emergency access to the ladies' room on a pro hac vice basis?

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2013 1:45 AM

I know I said "End of." And meant it.

But y'know what? Fuck all y'all in your anonymous unwiped transphobic asses.

4:42–Google's your friend. (Nobody here is.) Try "genderqueer", a term that probably includes your hypothetical.

Now...END OF.

Posted by annagranfors | December 5, 2013 3:08 AM

I don't think saying end of makes it so. There's still lots of women out there who are having their bathroom privacy disrespected by pushy transwomen. Yet you have the audacity to accuse these women of having unwiped asses. Hygeine is not transphobia, sorry, but you seem to need to be told this.
