Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

Well, at least a post-op, transsexual prostitute, knows who she is and how she wants to live her life and all the jigly bits are in the right places.

While off-topic I thought I should mention that there are no "jiggly bits" on a post-op. Post-op is the term for someone who has undergone sex reassignment surgery (SRT.)

(Assuming you meant a male to female transsexual, but it would equally work with a post-op, female to male gigolo.)

MtF has it easy when it comes to SRT, but FtM do not: it's as of yet impossible to construct a working penis artificially. You either end up with total loss of feeling or with all kinds of nasty side-effects, and there is no natural erection; the only way of getting an "erection" is via a pump installed inside your body. As such most FtM people do not undergo SRT, there's simply way too much to lose and really, really poor prognosis.

Not that anyone cares, I just happen to have friends of both camp and I just felt like enlightening people. Learning something new probably won't hurt anyone here.

Or if, you know, transsexuals or transvestites weren't referred to as revolting and disgusting. Or compared to computer UI's. Or if in the attempt to correct the first bigot's faulty analogy someone comes along and thinks it is humorous or worthwhile to explain why the bigoted analogy is faulty by exposing its technical incorrectness with an objectifying foray into human anatomy.

"Look at Nokia's N9 UI and how well it goes with that stunning hardware! It's like a blissful, successful, heteronormative marriage between a male who has the right jiggly bits and a female who has her own right jiggly bits! Because the first set of jiggly bits fill with blood when the male sees the female's jiggly bits and become stiffened which allows for the stimulation and internal lubrication of the female's not-so-jiggly bits, which allow for the entry of the stiff penis into her! What a great UI concept!"

I don't get your point. You're angry because you learned something new?
