I've kept on putting the info that Scourge kept his ambition to overthrow Megatron a secret (from Megatron atleast, he let Mega-Octane in on it). Who keeps deleting it? I think that info should be kept in since it's noted that Armada Starscream kept his desire to overthrow Megatron a secret during Transformers: Cybertron. (Username: Omegalink)

Oh, the hypocrisy

So, one cannot mention the fact that Scourge having a human female's DNA in his biosignature makes him transgendered, yet it's perfectly acceptable to make tranny jokes about Airazor or Cybertron Override? What's up with that? It can't be because of sensitivity issues, because if anyone's going to be offended at the thought of Scourge being transgendered, then they'd blow a gasket with all of the cracks made on the articles in the Gender-change Characters sub-category. I even changed the Trivia to reflect that it's more of a joke in the RiD fan community than something people actually believe, and it still got deleted. That's pretty damn hypocritical, don't you think? 64.13.101.210 23:07, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Airazor and Override both actually changed gender in the English to Japanese translation (or vice versa in Override's case).--RosicrucianTalk 23:13, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
That doesn't mean that saying that some fans joke that Scourge having Kelly's DNA makes him transgendered is less of a valid point. I mean, he's a "male" Transformer with a human female's DNA in his biosignature; how can anyone not joke about him being transgendered? Fans have joked about it before; I've seen it happen on Ben Yee's board (before it was taken down for revisement). So there isn't any reason why it should be deleted. 64.13.101.210 23:27, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
"Transgender" = person born biologically of one gender who self-identifies / chooses to live as the other. "Transvestite" = person born biologically of one gender who self-identifies as that gender but chooses to DRESS as the other, usually for fetishistic reasons. Someone who has actual biological components of BOTH genders is a hermaphrodite. I don't think it's funny or relevant, but, okay, sure, IF fans really have been saying it, then a notation in that context should be kosher. But in conclusion, damn. --Thylacine 2000 01:04, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
