Destructoid 6.

Destructoid 2nd opinion:

I like Max, but those were five pretty stupid points.

I am pretty sure he is just being a dork. Max is rarely ever serious in his videos.

So is Quiet actually Chico or not?

This is a really ridiculous theory, but I swear to goodness if it turns out to be true I'm going to have to separate myself from the Metal Gear fandom after seventeen years because I don't think I will be able to tolerate the way people will react to something like that.

I would just think it's really fucking dumb and doesn't make any sense for the character as he was portrayed in Peace Walker.

The theory is based off of traumatic events that occur to the character in Ground Zeroes. If it's true, I dunno. I don't have issues with the theory, but I will have issues with the way people will react to it being true. "It'll be fine, you're overreacting" you say. "Society is a hot mess of internalized transphobia and being reminded of that fact terrifies me" I say.

As one of your resident outspoken trans women:

Seattle is VERY good about this sort of thing, I know that more than a few of us are in the area and if you like the girlies, Seattle has toooonsa lesbians. Toooonsa!

I hear that Portland is also very good about it, and certain areas of California. Austin and Houston are closer to you and both are also good options. Major metropolitan areas tend to be the best about accepting non cis/het lifestyles.

I also hear from a trans lady friend of mine that Minneapolis is the transgender capital of the United States.

Not everyone is going to be 100% behind you on this no matter where you go, but these are good places to try. Just remember that cities are VERY expensive to live in, even with roommates to split the rent with. It's not a terrible idea to live close to a city, but still close enough that access to it isn't a pain. In my case, I am not in Seattle and my rent is $1025 for a three bedroom, two bathroom apartment with two friends, whereas my friends in Seattle can expect to pay $1200 before utilities for a one bedroom, one bathroom.

Whatever you do, as a pre transition trans girly, make sure you research options for pursuing it in the area you want to move to. Look up therapists, trans friendly health care providers, network with the local trans communities if can.

You can do this, Emma! It's a lot of work and a lot of heartache, but reaching the goals you've set for yourself here feels SO good. My fingers are crossed and I will do whatever I can to help you succeed.

Berserk is love. Berserk is life. I am constantly trying to get people into Berserk because it is greaaaaaaaaat. So if you haven't experienced Berserk, go do so! Start with the 1997 anime. It's a bit dated, but still wonderfulllll
