Looks like fun but I don't get why it matters that you/the rider/anyone is transgender. This is a snowboarding forum, shouldn't matter if you're male, female, both, half, black, white, gay, indian, etc. etc. etc.

By doesn't matter, I mean nobody should be talked down to for any of the above reasons, but I also feel nobody should be treated better for any of the above reasons either...

Thinking about the "why can't we retain female members" thread. Maybe the reason is we (the males of the forum) see a woman join up and go easy on her. They probably notice this and get offended that they're being coddled.

Anyway, as far as the vid goes, looks like fun!
