I don't get why some transgender people are so keen to tell everyone they are in fact the gender they're trying to act like they're not...

Why go to all that effort to pretend to be what you think you really are just to tell people it's fake?

Im gonna take advantage of this system and put all the labels for personal gain. Anybody who disputes any of labels will deem a bigot, sexist, racist, imperialist.

I'm not even going to touch the rest of your comment because it's just intentionally aggressive, but the goal is so that like-minded people can find each other, just like most of the tags on Twitch. It allows people who want to see that kind of content find each other more easily, and find a better community for yourself.

Also I don't even know how the second commenter still has an account with an insult in the username, but there's a limit on how many tags you an add on Twitch, and if you're telling us it's for personal gain rather than because they're accurate, then calling you out is none of those things.

Yes, why can't they keep the truth about them secret and hidden. Don't they realize it makes right-wingers uncomfortable, which is an affront to ones god-given right to be free of anyone that they don't understand?!

The worlds largest hot tub streaming platform!

Why does it matter what someones gender is when it comes to playing video games? I am a straight white male, but I don't post that everywhere. Why does someone feel the need to post "transgender" all over everything! Just like gay people. Gay people walk around telling everyone they are Gay. What does your sexual preference have to do with anything? What you prefer in the sheets has NOTHING to do with performance at your work. However LGBTQIATIAB++ do this so when they get fired fir subpar performance they can pull the "I am LGBTQIATIAB++" card, just like people of a certain color like to do.

Gay people walk around telling everyone they’re gay

I’ve lived in England twenty-two years, Brazil a year and Japan thirty years.

Nobody’s ever told me about their sexuality....

You just did.

Why does someone feel the need to post "transgender" all over everything! Just like gay people. Gay people walk around telling everyone they are Gay.

Yet you just felt the inherent need to assert that you straight, but here you are saying ... oh, never mind.

What does your sexual preference have to do with anything?

You just demonstrated that you perfectly well understand that one's sexuality and gender are central to their identity. Looks like you answered your own question.

What you prefer in the sheets has NOTHING to do with performance at your work.

Ah ha - so you agree with anti-discrimination laws that make it illegal to fire someone for their sexuality or gender expression - good!

However LGBTQIATIAB++ do this so when they get fired fir subpar performance they can pull the "I am LGBTQIATIAB++" card, just like people of a certain color like to do

This does not happen. Ever.
