Her name is Carolyn Petit.

Found out on her twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/carolynmichelle/status/27063876588

Here is a youtube video of her on Gamespot On the Spot (11:27)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eMpv6sOqTc

I just thought that it was interesting and I admire Gamespot for not discriminating against people like her. :) She makes great reviews. What do you all think?

And she is one of the most competent reviewers they have. Her L.A Noire review was superb.

Hmmmm.... I'm going to speak my mind here and say I don't understand transgender people. I don't see why they have to pretend to be something they are not. They should be happy with the way they were born....

That's just it, they already feel like they're pretending to be something they're not. They feel they're in the wrong body, and should have been born differently.

But thats what I don't understand. They should realise that they can't change the way they are, and should accept who they are.

It doesn't really bother me. At the end of the day she'll be judged on the quality of her reviews, and from the couple of reviews of seen so far - she's one of Gamespot's better reviewers.

And just how do you know what goes into their decision making? It's not exactly a small decision, and I'm sure they've thought about it much more than you have.

I'm sure that there's many people who spend time listening to voices that no-one else can hear. Just because someone thinks of something, doesn't mean they're stable minded.

Making decision based on feelings is being completely selfish. First off, your not thinking logically, Secondly, you disregard any one else feelings on the matter, and thirdly, it is purely a self gain, self esteem, and egotistical purpose. Would you want a leader who has all of the above qualities? I wouldn't either

That has nothing to do with this. Transgendered people are not schizophrenic.

Just because they're not schizo doesn't mean that their minds are working correctly. Dissociative disorders are defined as conditions that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, awareness, identity and/or perception.

Making decision based on feelings is being completely selfish. First off, your not thinking logically, Secondly, you disregard any one else feelings on the matter, and thirdly, it is purely a self gain, self esteem, and egotistical purpose. Would you want a leader who has all of the above qualities? I wouldn't either

Why do you keep bringing "leader" up in this? We're talking about transgendered people, not leaders.

It's YOUR body. Noone has the right to tell you what to do with YOUR body. That's thinking logically. As far as how others feel, in this case one would put their feeling before others, simply because this is a life changing decision. It's not done selfishly, it's done to feel normal, to be the way you feel you were intended to be.

But you clearly were not intended to be that way if nature did not agree. Having your mind believe it's "not suited for this body" is not normal thinking.

I don't see why people even care. I mean she wanted to be a female, then everyone should just address her as such. Why should she even tell folks that she used to be a male? What's the whole point of going through this if you have to tell everyone that?

Genetic mutations are a normal thing, and usually disagree with nature.

Um no, people actually get married because its a thought out decision. This isn't the movies where two people fall in love and live happily ever after. There are logical, financial and other decision that need to be made when it comes to marriage...You know, i think thats why they are so many divorces now a days. People get this misconception that marriage is all happy and flowers and a walking into the sunset but at the end of the day its no where near that.
