It's not bad.

My only concern was that you put the 'medical' half in a negative light. I'm not trying to make excuses for the health care system, Lord knows it's has a lot of problems. It's just annoying that health care workers often get shown as the bad guy in this kind of situation, when insurance companies are usually the ones dictating what can and can't be done.

That said, if this story is true, then hopefully everything works out okay for you and you enjoy your new outlook on life.

i think you're really brave and totally awesome for making this game. Thank you for coding a way for outsiders to understand your struggle. Dispite some ass-burger down syndrome NG user comments, i think the game was good for what it was intended to do; give a look into someone's actual life. I wish you well in your lifes endevours.

Wow, are all these people insulting this retarded? You're entitled to be who you want to be, and this game is a great step toward feeling comfortable with yourself. Good luck!

Apparently the most "intelligent" newgrounds users have not figured out the differences between sex and gender...

Anyways, this was a neat little experimental game and I really thought that it exposed me to how you felt. I have never had to struggle with my identity on a level the artist has, but I definitely felt that I got a slice of it.

Kudos on being able to reproduce the trapping feel of this predicament and how limited and irreversible life can seem some times.

We're proud of ya.

Why is everyone being assholes about this persons struggle? You dont like the game? Fine, give it a zero and move to another game. Don't verbally abuse this person because she doesn't feel comfortable as a man. Not all games have to fit a certain style, I personally love games that a different. Don't bash this person for being different. Grow up.
