I'm sure when the transgender developers in the article started making games it's because he/she was interested in the new emerging industry. I'm sure the last thing in his/her mind would be "Gee, there sure are so few transgender people in this new gaming market so I think I should represent them!"

If a person, male or female or in between, is interested to get into game development, just do it. Gamers will judge them by their games, not by what the devs have between their legs.

Ironically articles like these would only add more suspicions from gamers because of the blatant agenda it's trying to push, especially in the current climate between gamers and the gaming media that suddenly acquired some sense of activism. Instead of helping their cause they are pushing gamers even farther away. Remember, gamers didn't start this 'war'.
