I think I'm the missing link... Check out the photo in the attachment - I'm the one sitting behind the girl. Compare the skin tone (I haven't been to any sunny place for a year at the time the photo was taken, and I generally avoid sunbathing).

The missing link to the online beauty contest?

Did you have have any problems recognising that the person in the photo was a man?

if you've been following this thread, you know she's not a man but rather a woman with a penis. But yes, you can tell, there's something off about her face

Sorry, I didn't really read the article. I thought it was about a man, who used make-up and photoshop to trick people into believing that he was a woman.

Brow ridge is more expressed than in females. Also the cheekbones are too flat and the chin is too massive (the nasal bridge is too high and too wide, but women can also have ugly noses). There's generally a solid bone structure underneath - testosterone.

Richard Simmons must pay $130K to National Enquirer, Radar Online It seems that in America, we've reached the point where "alleging someone is transgender is not necessarily defamatory." The Enquirer and another media outlet ran a story alleging that exercise guru Richard Simmons was transitioning, he sued, lost for reasons stated, and was ordered to pay the other side's legal costs Richard Simmons was ordered to pay nearly$130,000 to the National Enquirer and Radar Online after the exercise guru sued the two media outlets for running a series of articles alleging he was transitioning to become a woman.
(snip)
However, (Los Angeles Superior Court Judge) Keosian ruled that alleging someone is transgender is not necessarily defamatory. Keosian dismissed Simmons case on Sept. 1, 2017.

Tinder Sued By Transgender Woman ... You Won't Let Us In!!!
Ariel Hawkins claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, a few days ago she edited her profile to disclose that she was a pre-op trans woman. She says Tinder immediately deleted her account.

I'm appalled that people on Tinder would refuse to meet a woman for sex just because she has a penis

Leo Varadkar will try to raise conversion therapy issue with Mike Pence

https://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/leo ... 32507.html

Conversion therapy is the pseudoscientific practice of trying to change an individual's sexual orientation using psychological or spiritual interventions. There is virtually no reliable evidence that sexuality can be controlled or changed and medical bodies warn that conversion therapy practices are ineffective and potentially seriously harmful. Nevertheless, advocates and proponents do provide anecdotal reports of so-called "ex-gays" who claim some degree of success in becoming heterosexual

Anti-gay bias allegations roil Hawaii US House race

Ing, 29, also criticized Chin's church for hosting what he called a "gay conversion therapy" seminar in 2016. The seminar's speakers were from Strength in Weakness Ministries, whose website says it aims to support gay people as they resist same-sex urges. Ing said Chin "has defended the church's extremism."
