DC Comics made history last week when they introduced the American comic worlds first openly transgender character, Alysia Yeoh, in the pages of Batgirl.

Yeoh’s “coming out” story marks the latest point of progress in the rising prominence of transgender figures in the public spotlight and may pave the way for other fictional, transgender characters and real-life transgender people to be recognized and accepted in everyday life.

Check out some other famous transgender celebs below. – nicholas robinson

    If i come across a man with no penis, i’m spazzin’ out

    • Kelly Lewinsky Segura

      I bet u would like it lol

    • Jackie Cutter

      Don’t worry, none of us want your dumb ass either.

    • sarah jiles

      That type of ignorant behavior is why there are so many hate & violence in our world today. Trans people is not a game, it’s medical, something you are born with. They are human beings like you! Do you want your family or kids face the same abuse you are expressing towards the Transgender community? Think about it, words lead into HATE and results into MURDER!

      • GetReal

        thats not hate, they are born with the inability to tolerate you

    • A*

      I feel much more sorry for trans people than I do for judgemental assholes who have a lack of understanding. I really hate people who hate and discriminate, u judgers and discriminaters make me sick.

    • epix

      Actually you wouldn’t know if they were grown, Because if they had the money then they could have the surgry which would allow them to have a penis.

    • Platypus Lover

      Transgender men still have their penis, so don’t spazz out. The surgeon just mutilates and cuts it up and turns it inside out alters it until it looks and feels just like a vagina.

  • Joe

    This is incorrect. Yeoh is NOT the first openly transgender American comic character.

    Grant Morrison’s 1994-1996 series, “The Invisibles,” featured a central character named Lord Fanny whose transgendered identity was the main focus of several issues.

    • Joe

      Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman” series also prominently featured a pre-operative transsexual character named Wanda as a major cast member in the 1991-1992 “Game of You” storyline.

      • Kelly Lewinsky Segura

        I never knew that

      • Ashleigh

        I read those Sandman comics a few months ago. They’re accurate for their era, but today things are different. With or without surgery, trans women can live a peaceful life without anyone around them but those closest friends knowing they’re trans at all. It’s not deception or trickery, ppl just see us for who we are. Women. I’m transgender, and ppl only see and hear a woman. Just as they should. :)

  • Guest

    That Laverne is a total bitch, Met her performing at a bachelorette party at Lucky Chengs NYC and she was so mean and nasty to everyone. There must be real LGBT activists that you could have found.

        Frugmus @ shut ya green azz up

    • Sean Royce

      You’re ignorant as fuck, they’re born mentally thinking they should be the other sex. It’s not something they can help.

      • T

        Thank You!

        • Sean Royce

          No problem.

          • arcadian

            You guys are failed human. Like they are they failed on their gender okay. They wanted the glamour (guys who a
            Want to be girls)or just to lazy to be glamorized (girls who wants to be guys) . They have society they need help for any to human to say that they don t are sick themselves. Sadly its both of you.

          • Sean Royce

            Nice spelling idiot.

          • gaybasher

            Relax. Everyone has an opinion.

          • আলুর দ্ম

            i’m one with you…

      • Klitius Smooth

        @sean royce hear how dumb you sound, so your born to being a pedophile or a murder.

        • Amy Westerbank

          Says the person who instantly believes all LGBT people are pedophiles and murderers.
          Though… sadly enough, the numbers disagree with you. Like, terribly. Your profound ignorance on full display has resulted in the world simply laughing at your incredible ignorance.

      • Klitius Smooth

        Sean Royce, if you believe that dumb shit, than your the type believe dog an cats can mate a human baby.#moron

      • Alexis Voice

        Fixing a mental problem with a physical solution, what happened to if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck…since when do we say, “sorry, since you feel like a chicken, we’re gonna make you look like a chicken”. This world is not progressing, not in the least. Everything we have an issue with, we go under the knife, we alter and we change…acceptance? what’s next? I was born black, but I feel white, I feel like a lion so I want a tail, c’mon now. A mental issue requires a mental solution…no?

        • MelanieWaffle

          I admit a mental solution would seem like the best idea. However, for ages this has been tried and it has constantly failed. In fact, trying to change someone mentally in this situation has time and again proved to be more harmful. I don’t have the study on hand but I can provide it. Further I know this from personal experience as well as hearing of other’s personal experiences, such as Leelah Alcorn.

      • Platypus Lover

        Being a gay man myself I will admit it gives you many feminine urges. Homosexual men have identical brains to heterosexual females this is a proven fact and is also the reason why sexuality is not a choice. Because the human brain is wired that way. However sexuality sets in at a very early age, like when you are a toddler before one can even understand what being gay really is and what it means it is by no means a choice unless you are an ignorant white trash republican hill billy hypocrite.

      • MelanieWaffle

        I would like to thank you as well. We really need people out there like you helping us because, these people in the forums, are everywhere and make it a scary idea to transition. Thanks for being there for us.

    • Jackie Cutter

      What’s with the douch dudes calling themselves “SMOOOTH”

      • Klitius Smooth

        Douch is something you do with your fake vagina@ Jackie Cutter. #keep in a child place

    • আলুর দ্ম

      yea… that is really terrible !!!

    • Sam

      I don’t understand how you can say that about people you don’t know. YOU don’t know their situation, YOU don’t know their bodies OR their minds, you don’t even know what’s normal. All you know is what you’ve been TAUGHT. When you allow yourself to open your mind a bit and see things from the other perspective, then come back and try to make some sort of intelligent comment.

      • Klitius Smooth

        Once again, another person with you don’t know situation. BLAH…..@Sam so when pedophile molest a kid, do you know their situation,or when a person is killed for their nationality or their race, do you know their situation. Exactly…. sometimes if you don’t know how to think, learn to stay out of grown folk business. God made man, an then created woman from man. God didn’t create man, an have another man come out of another man. God didn’t create man, for him to turn into women. I don’t get why you open your mouth if you are not going think first. 2 of the same sex can’t reproduce, you don’t have freedom of will to think your God to switch your sex. If you was made a man, it’s a reason why you was made a man.

        • MelanieWaffle

          Look, I’ve recently been struggling with my gender identity. It is insanely hard. I can’t believe God would want me to suffer so much. The dysphoria is crippling.I know it won’t make any difference in your opinion or mind what is right or what is wrong. At this point, I’m not even asking you accept us. but please leave us alone. It is hard enough to keep my faith as is. People like you drive other trans away from God.Just something to think about mainly. Also, thanks everyone for sticking up for us. We really need cis people at our back in times like this. God bless.

          • AnaLorenaVictor

            You say you are struggling but it seems you already made your choice or are you willing to keep fighting this battle? Accepting sin to make everyone happy is very weak. We owe God everything, the world entice you with sin, if you watch sinful shows who make you think that it is ok to change sex, they seduce you and they confuse you and they convince you to stray away from the one who made you. The feeling of homosexuality is not from God is from Satan. You have to decide who you want to please and if you decide to please him, he will help you. But if you want to allow the demonic forces of homosexuality to pull you then is your choice, but that does not mean everyone have to think that is ok.

            No one pushes another person away from God, that is only an excuse to blame someone else, because they love their sin and will not give it up for God. We all face trials and tests, and only the brave take the grace, social pressure is too much for some who cowardly give in to please people.

          • Amy Westerbank

            Yet nothing about being transgendered is sin. Nothing in the bible covers that.
            Why, I ask you, would your interpretation of God hate his own creations? It’s one thing is people like us had an option, but the fact remains that if we go with your interpretation: God made us this way. We never had an option in this matter. Most of our conflict comes with the fact that we are aware of this matter, try to change it, are unable to, and end up hurting ourselves more because we are taught by people like you that what we are doing is wrong.
            The fact is, that not a single examination of trans people from a dispassionate source backs up what you say. We are born this way, some genetic fluke resulted in us being this way and that is something we have to live with. We have as much control over it as you do being born whatever race or gender or nationality you happen to be. We can only embrace who we are in order to get beyond this personal conflict.
            You might not know this. In fact, I hope that’s the case. You might think that we choose this life, but that begs the question: Why would we choose a life in which our chances of being killed for who we are is very high? Do you think I relish walking down the streets and getting a little scared when some guy gives me a second look? Do you think I actually wanted my dad to beat me with various stuff for being trans? Do you think I wanted that?

            I hope not. Society understanding that we are born this way and cannot help it is kind of important as it lessens the conflict we feel and lowers the danger we go through daily. This is a case where the bible, never actually saying anything about LGBT people by the way (Leviticus talks about being owners of men of the same tribe, meaning: Don’t own a man like you would a woman”) But, I know you won’t care. You have your beliefs and that’s great. But I hope that you will read this and realize none of us asked for this. We don’t want to be harmed, we didn’t choose that, and we have to live with the fact that fate has dealt us a hand which has the death card forever lurking just within sight. So, believe what you will, but realize that we didn’t choose this. We were born this way and the least you can do as a good christian is love thy neighbor and not subject us to further torture.

          • MelanieWaffle

            Sorry I’m just now responding ;) I’ve been busy with school amongst other things. While I respect your opinion it saddens me how you don’t see it from the other side. I understand I won’t change your mind and you won’t change mine. I would just like to address a few things however. One, I’m not asking people to think what I’m doing is ok. I’m just asking people to leave us alone. I don’t think that is too much to ask. While you have a right to your religion and your interpretation of it, I don’t think God would want you to treat people badly because you are trying to be godly. You don’t have to accept us, but please quit trying to say demonic forces are making us homosexual, this makes Christians not only look judgemental but crazy. Please note, I am coming from a strict southern baptist back ground and now am non denominational. Its people like you who make me feel uncomfortable in the church. Honestly, because of people like you I about gave up my faith all together. I find it a struggle every day not to see God as cruel, when I have to remember, my God is not cruel, its people who make him seem this way. Third, you asked where I am at in life right now and if I am willing to fight this battle. I have been fighting for years and am at a point where sure, I could fight it a little longer, but I will probably commit suicide. This isn’t something which I can just pray away and if you think this is the compassionate thing to do to make people fight the battle, you are cruel. You have no idea the pain dysphoria can cause. Further, you have no idea how close I’ve been to the edge where it was only God holding me back from killing myself. Don’t get me wrong I am only human and it will only be so long before I just give up. So I’m choosing to live instead of kill myself. I’m choosing to have a fullfilling life. I am spreading Christianity to those hurting in the trans community because they have been made a pariah. Sadly, the more I here about their stories, the more I understand why they want nothing to do with Christianity. There is literally no show that made me want to change sex. This assumption…… I don’t even know what to say to it. This is something I have been dealing with before I even knew there was a term for it….. Look, I get you are set in your ways and thats cool. It takes all types. You don’t have to agree with me and you can see God as you like. Its up to Him in the end how we are all judged anyways. All I’m asking is that if you don’t accept us, don’t be cruel and try to inhibit and stop us. You aren’t being godly. At that point you are helping suicide stats to raise. You are doing more harm than good and I would hope you see this as a bad thing. Just leave us alone.

      • AnaLorenaVictor

        open mind meaning to think like you? and only like you?

    • A*

      It’s ignorant bastards like you make me sick. I couldn’t care less if people like you jumped off a cliff or something. You people with your hate and shit, I hate you judgemental assholes. Leave trans people the fuck alone!

      • Klitius Smooth

        First of all im not ignorant jack…!!! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. With that being said, if you want me off a cliff come push me….. im waiting, ???? thought so, im still typing. I love everyone, not fake love, real love. Tough love, is not to b.s. with my “fellow man”, so if you like lieing to people to, keep on. I am not here picking on trans, gay people run this world. So, you can take your captain cape off-_- a.k.a your dress

        • AnaLorenaVictor

          It is true, people with homosexuality issues are so emotionally ill that they make their issue, an attention seeker, they want everyone to have pity on them and accept their lifestyle as good.

          • Klitius Smooth

            It is if that your belief @AnaLorenaVictor

        • Amy Westerbank

          You are a terrible person.

          • Klitius Smooth

            Your a terrible person, for giving into your internal so. Just because you refuse to except the obvious, you wasn’t born that way. There is reason why you go through troubles it’s unnatural. When a child does wrong, or a family does wrong, I can guarantee you would put your 2’cents. So, please spare me with the o…. your such a terrible person. If a old man had sex with a little boy, you would have a problem. But…..ow wait a minute you was born a man, but changed what God gave to you is insulting your creator. You an a pedophile no different, you sleep with men, parading like a women. Any… hypocrite

          • MelanieWaffle

            Using your logic, those children born with Cleft Palates (sorry if spelled wrong) or those born with fixable bodily defects were just born that way and should not receive the medical attention they need? What do you say to this?

          • Amy Westerbank

            Wow. Really? Did you commit the sin of false equivalency? Your fallacious logic is abhorrent. Like, do you need to sit down? Do you understand what consent is? Why a child can’t give it? Nope? Then excuse yourself and sit in the corner of shame for making such a basic and fallacious argument.
            Wow, it just gets better and better!

          • Klitius Smooth

            Satan get behind me, stop trolling me. You’re demonic spirit is not welcomed.

    • Amy Westerbank

      Don’t worry, none of us like you either. If you really think it’s the end of the world because some outdated belief system is being challenged: Great. I bet if you were alive in the 1850’s, you’d have put forth the same arguments.

    • seen the light

      You’re retarded. There is no god and I’m so over hearing you mentally defective, stone aged religious folk talking about your god. You don’t even understand your own book. Peace, harmony, not being judgmental, forgiveness? Any of these things mean anything to you?

      • Klitius Smooth

        You dare to every, speak so reckless. No God, I hope you are prepared, repent for sins or face the consequences.

    God gave man intelligence. So if a person becomes a doctor. Then he can either save lifes or be a doctor frankentine. Their choices have nothing to do with God’s will. It’s their choices how they use their skills. Free will includes mans choices, actions, and words. The catch is: If we make bad decisions. Do bad things. He holds us accountable. I constantly hear people say” why did God let this happen”. Reality, God has no involvment in man’s choices. He simply gave us a guideline(bible) which gives us information. On what he considers bad choices. Then Jesus came along. He never changed his fathers laws. He merly breaks it down: love they God with all thy heart. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself. Love thy neighbors(in spite of theyselves). Judge not least ye be judged. See reality is. No man is really equipped to judge another. Remember: He without sin cast the first stone. Sin is sin. We all sin. My thing is.Who am I to tell another person they wrong cause they gay or transgender? Who am I to tell another person they going to hell? After all, the bible does say. Those we think may be last, may be first. People tend to pick and choose parts of the bible. That fits their prejudice thinking. And they run with it. Well remember fornication is a sin outside of marrige. Bearing false wittness against thy neighbor(gossiping, lying on a person) Is one of the ten commandments . Worshiping mamon(material thing, money, ect) . Stealing is a commandment we should not do(lying also). I say all this to say. I don’t know about your lives!! But me personally. Yes I belive in God. Yes I love God. But I am in no way a saint!! I still sin. I’ve nevet killed a person. But I pretty much at one time or another. Have broken quite a few of the ten commandment!!. I’m not trying to brag about my sins I’m saying this to say. A lot people tend to try and make another person, or type of people feel bad for they choices. Well guess what? We need not be worrying about their choices!!! We better be worring about our own!!! Cause in the end( those that say they belive in Gods word). Then they should already know this. Those that cause a child who loves God to sin against God. Is a sin that bears down hard upon their heads!! That’s what we all should be focusing on. How to help the children. Before they grow up to be Ted Bundys, Charles Masons. Or someone way worse!! Oh! for you people who never knew about the children. Heres where it’s written :MATTHEW 17-18 vrs 1-6. Remember: we are all children of God. Jesus came for all.. To be able to be forgiven for our sins. Im not a holy roller!! Some say I can be a beast:) But truth is. Im clay in Gods hands. And everyday I breath life. I’ll be forever be being molded. Blessings to us all:)

    what we should be focusing on

    • sarah jiles

      Boy, if we all were thinking like you, no one will be save, “who am i to evangelize someone”. Man, you have a bible in your hand and you know it, and you are incapable to tell someone his destiny if they don’t repent of their sin? whatever sin it is? social pressure got to you huh.

    • Amy Westerbank

      I will add this though: None of us chose to become LGBT. We were born this way. But, the point remains: Judge not lest thou be judged. Which I agree with you on.

  • MattMarriott

    As for US soldier Bradley Manning:
    :
    Ongoing End of Show 2013-2014: ANY stories massively covered by media are totally staged with actors.
    From news to reality shows, nothing but actors playing scripted roles. The real Truman show is completed during its termination.
    Examples:
    – deaths: from ambassador Chris Stevens in Libya to Philipp Seymour-Hoffman and Peaches Geldof alias Lady Gaga alias Amy Winehouse.
    – funerals of former heads of state: from Nelson Mandela in South Africa to Ariel Sharon in Israel, staged almost in parallel.
    Side note: Mandela is still alive because the role is played by Morgan Freeman who also plays Kofi Annan. Impostor impersonating Sharon (murdered 1975) died in 2006.
    – births: starting with impersonators of murdered Prince William and Kate Middleton becoming parents of Prince George (side note: “uncle” Harry also impersonated).
    – elections: from Germany (or any other EU or US state) to Iran 2013.
    – leaks: from transsexual soldier Bradley Manning and NSA computer expert Snowden to the Pope’s butler.
    – trials: from Blade Gunner Oscar Pistorius in South Africa to Berlusconi in Italy.
    – jailings, arrests, sieges: from Puzy Riot jailed in Russia to butler jailed by his pope at the Vatican; from Assange under siege at the Ecuador embassy in London to Sarkozy arrested in France.

    This world is coming to an end….Gays and lesbians should never have been allowed to get married. It is a sin and it says so in the bible. Well at least I will go to heaven, all of them won’t. Then transgender is ok? Hell no it is not…..GROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Emma Jean De Arruda

      I’m glad that u were born perfect u shld b thankful being “transgender” just means u were born with a birth defect! (Though I don’t see it that way) So if ur baby was born with a cleft lip u wldnt get it fixed? Or with an extra toe u wldnt have it removed? Or if there was a surgery that cld make the blind see u wldnt get it? Be thankful u were born the way u shld not everybody is that lucky! They have to deal with people who are mean and don’t understand! God also says obey the law of the land & if the land says it’s ok for people to love who they love & ur that strong of a Christian than u shld b ok with it to! But really I shld just b ok with it not just because the law says so but because god also says love all my children and to not judge!

      • MelanieWaffle

        Beautifully said

  • Blu

    I only have 1 Question, what would happen if this type of surgery didn’t exist? I understand it’s not something they choose, but this wouldn’t even be an option if this procedure didn’t exist. Not to judge, but some people criticize celebrities a lot for going under the knife to alter something about their appearance but yet would support this. Someone may change something about themselves because they believe they should’ve been born with certain features in order to look more appealing like you know lil Kim & such… IJS.. People tend to criticize others while support the others, often time at the core, it seems to deal with similar ideas…

    • Nicholas Quade

      transgendered people have exsisted for thousands of years

      before the surgery they were labeled as crossdressers. but this is the world we live in now, the surgery does exsist. So why even worry about what if. it’s like asking what if we didn’t win the revolution. there is no crystal ball for that answer, so why ask the question

      we all have things to deal with, it’s called living. why do people feel it’s ok to spread their hate and ignorance. every person is a person first, not gay, lesbian, bisexual, or trans. their sexual oriantation and gender oriantation should not be a point of discussion in this day and age.

      gay bashing is not ok. or trans bashing. they want to live as the rest of us do. the entertainment industry has it right, it doesn’t matter about the oriantaion, what matters is the talent

    • Amy Westerbank

      Another thing we did: Castration. It wasn’t often pretty and in some cultures was done young. It’s only in European and other western cultures that being LGBT is considered a bad thing. Look up the past of India, Japan, China, and the U.S and The other American first nation people. We were noted for who we were and in the case of the First Nation Americans, held spiritual positions.

  • AnaLorenaVictor

    Ok people,scientifically, the anus rectum is part of the digestive system, it is not a sex organ, therefore, should not be use for other purpose than to expel fecal matter or excrement, whatever you call it. Factually every person know their real gender by observation, another part of science. Each one look between their legs, and whatever is there, that’s your sex, no matter what you feel or what you have made to believe. Having solved the scientific part or physical part of the issue, we are left with only the emotional or spiritual, where the problem lies.

    • Amy Westerbank

      I feel so bad for you. To have such hate in your heart and to judge an entire group of people without ever once thinking about them. You must have no empathy, and that is truly heartbreaking. I hope this changes, for to carry such hatred in your heart must be taxing.

  • Laura

    I must be blind, but i dont see any difference between a transgender person and non transgender. I cant see any difference. Their heart and their intelligence is with no difference. Their thoughts are neither better nor worse. They are like me. Why are many so against them? I cant see. I am blind and that is how I want to remain.

    • MelanieWaffle

      Its not that you are blind, its that you choose not to be an ass hole :D

    I don’t care if you are transgender or not, I have friends who are and I support everyone to be what they want to be the only problem I had was – none of these people are celebrities I didn’t know any of them

    I want to be a platypus so bad they are so cute and awesome I can’t wait until they have plastic surgery to make me a real life transhuman platypus so I can swim around in the water and eat fish and build dams or what ever the f””k these things do they are amazing..

  • Platypus Lover

    Nobody understands me or why I like to walk around dressed as various animals but mostly platypuses. I don’t know I’ve just always felt like one since I was a little platypus. One amazing fact. The platypus shuts off all of those normal senses and finds prey based
    solely on electrical signals and mechanical waves that it picks up using
    its bill. This allows the platypus to create a perfect representation of its surroundings to find prey. THE MORE YOU KNOW THE MORE YOU”LL LOVE THESE FUR BALLS.
