    Default Tom Gabel comes out as trangendered

    http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...ender-20120508

    This makes me like her even more. I've had several friends transition (though all of them F to M), and I have been in awe of the metaphorical balls it takes for transgendered people just to be themselves every time.

    I guess you could say he stopped, took some time to think, and figured out what's important to her. WERK, GIRL.

    Wow, did not expect this at all. Sounds like she maaaaade a serious decision. Also yeah it's pretty awesome. I wonder how the band's gonna sound afterwards.

    Hmmm, interesting. Personally, I'm not sure how to take this situation. It seems like some kind of elaborate practical joke, mostly because of how out of the ordinary it appears. If it is indeed true, then that would be kinda interesting to see how it pans out. I wonder how this would effect Against Me! and their music.

    Lol. Davey self-identifies as male though doesn't he? But I definitely have wanted Davey to do my makeup for a very long time.

    I am uncomfortable with this.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    So a few people are concerned about how her voice will change, but others are saying how it won't change that much since puberty and testosterone already stretched the vocal cords. So most of the change would just be in singing style, if any. At least that's what I'm getting from all of this, correct me if I'm wrong.

    I assume that having a hormon treatment would also affect the voice somewhat.

    I dunno. I'd imagine preserving the singing voice she's become known for might be low on her priorities list right now, but I could be mistaken.

    "Tom Gabel of Against Me" was a worldwide trending topic on Twitter when news broke, just about all of it positive. Gives me hope.

    I do understand that, I'm just going on what some commenters are saying. It might not be a top important thing, but it is one of the things nonetheless, that people are talking about.
