Currently we have male and (to a limited extent) female crews.

 

This is all very well, but has no thought been given to transgender crews?

 

Speaking as a transsexual, I find this lack of consideration quite hurtful and potentially discriminatory.

Agreed, I demand gender fluid crew options.

Who are you to claim there are male and female crew members? afaik WG has only talked about female crew members. You have labeled all the other crew as male. Appalling

Interesting.

 

The trans-sexual's desire, when satisfied, is to be a member of the opposite sex - male to female, female to male - so, that desire fulfilled, how can it be considered that there's anything either hurtful or discriminatory about WG's male or female crews?

Slightly off topic, given the large number of Marks and Spencer store closures coming up, have you given much thought as to where you'll buy you granny pants from yet?

This is indeed a very fair point, and I can only hang my head in shame for not having fully considered the manifold implications before so hastily making my post.

 

It seems to me - and I may be wrong - that there are black crewmen in American tanks but not in other nations, similarly no Asians except in Japanese tanks.

 

And why no transgenders in Polish tanks?

Trans crew? Only if we have Jordan Peterson's voice as the crews captain.

M&S are awfully lower middle class, my dear.  My thongs come from Primark.

Oh, I forgot to mention that in my opinion this is a major issue so far as Gameplay is concerned. 

 

Persons of alternative gender such as myself naturally feel very uncomfortable with single sex crews, and this impacts on our win rate.

There was me feeling left out of all this binary, transgender, fluidity malarkey.

 

Never fear though, those millennials have sorted us blokes out.  We are apparently cisgender.  I don't feel left out and ashamed any more.

 

Now to right write a letter strongly demanding access to cisgender toilets in the local library.


EDIT: Jesus, even by my low standards spelling write as right was bad.  That kids, is what six cans of Stella does for a cisgender. 

I also would like consideration of chuckling a lot whilst typing as a contributing factor.  Ashamed.

Perhaps you can approach a simulation of the idea by installing a female voicepack for your male-looking crews?

Soooo - how much whiskey has one had?

 

Personally, I'm 2/3 of the way through a bottle of this:

I knew that if I broached the issue with the Brains Trust here we might find ourselves edging toward a solution that we might present to WG.

Perhaps one is aware that crews comprised of either sex have, since WG's esteemed and correct adjustment to mechanics, enjoy equality and compatibility regarding the BIA or SOS "perks"?
