"Shemale" is offensive outside of pornography and the sex business actually. Within porn, it refers to someone who was born with male genitalia and still has them, but also breasts and other attributes commonly associated with women. KJ probably called herself a shemale at some point, but it's still a word you should avoid using outside your keyword search.
I looked her up, she doesn't have male genitalia, so the word wouldn't apply even within pornography anymore.

TITLES, MONIKERS, PSUEDONYM, NON DE GUERRE, TS,TV,CD. Don't know that I care. Don't know that I need to. My only concern would be full disclosure. Lot of simple types out there, willing to believe. A young man with raging hormones is easy to fool. A PREDATOR COULD TAKE ADVANTAGE. As long as there's full disclosure. Everyone has all the info FINE.

@GHW - Gotta go with @JO on it; 'shemale' isn't offensive, while 'tranny' is like 'n*gger' - offensive when used by an outsider, but sometimes used among friends or as self-deprecating humor.
And by the way, about the only time you'll see me use 'tranny' here is when I'm calling myself one, quoting @Grik (being offensive) because he has frequently said that "any guy / all guys / the *only guys* who talk(s) about shoes are poofs and trannies' so I just roll with it and let him call me what he wants. Not gonna give up a good foot *or* shoe fetish based on someone's insults!

"shemale" isn't actually offensive in the community....tranny is, though

@Jay Owen - If you'd really like to "get to know her" then don't call her a shemale, that's an offensive and demeaning slur (as is "tranny" fyi)

@BIB - Thank you. That was the question I was asking.

JO aint gonna lie. I rather get to know this gorgeous shemale intimately than mess around with an ugly natural-born female. If that makes me gay, then whatever. JO don't care what you think.

@TRLB - thanks for having my best interest in mind, but I'm good!

Guys, even on the new walls, we had a huge brouhaha about this (yes, on the @Bailey_Jay wall, and *several* others). Some of us had to 'agree to disagree' on what the actual 'gender' of the individual is, whether TV or TS (and pre- or post-op 'in the basement'). I think the 'bottom line' we could all somewhat agree upon was that their IMDb listing is the deciding factor--- if a person is listed as 'female' on IMDb (regardless of their criterion for deciding such), then a page *can* and probably *will* be opened here by someone. We agreed that there are people who will want to view that material, which drives more traffic, which makes more *money* so it's not going away. But some of us felt it'd be nice to have some sort of flag on the page that the gallery has pics of someone not a cisgendered (natural-born) woman. That's not likely to happen, so... caveat emptor. When in doubt, check IMDb (for movie credits like, "Shemales from Space" or whatever), or Google 'em. Or most fun of all, make a comment about how hot 'she' is, then let a fellow Wikifeeter drop a link on you in the comment wall while everyone else snickers knowingly! (:^p)

@Iluvefeet - Or is that "bone in"?
2014-04-09 01:59:10Toe (user)
This does beg the question of appropriateness of this gallery. Would that make this all adult material? Simply because it deviates from the norm to where I would be inclined to wonder how our sponsors might feel about it.

For some reason, the term boneless comes to mind
2014-04-09 01:54:04Toe (user)
@BIB - Pretty much.
2014-04-09 01:33:57BackInBlack60 (user)
@Toe- I retracted mine about 'tender boneless breasts' or whatever, but guess I *could've* left it... after all, they're artificially hormone-enhanced, just like the ones at the grocery!

Too late to take it back. It's whatever. I stand by bottom roast. :)
@54- Nope, I didn't look 'it' up, sadly. Guess I can't sing "Won't Be Fooled Again," huh? Funny I was just making jokes about my own "transition to pink" in Guild Chat (my username turned pink today for a milestone) and said I hoped it didn't involve hormone injections and cutting off things I enjoy having and might need later! Guess this one decided 'those things' were unneeded and/or unwanted. Yikes. While I don't want to get into a 'thing' about this topic again, and don't really object to the galleries being here for those interested, I still think some 'fair warning' somewhere would be nice for those of us who *aren't* but not sure how @Creator would accomplish that. Maybe a field up by size for... never mind. Gonna get myself in trouble if I don't just shut up now. 'Nuff said, but *thanks* @54 for the 'heads-up' and I obviously retracted my previous comment! LOL.
