Samus is just a chick.... Birdo is a transvestite... It's a dude that dresses like a chick... Nintendo just got cold feet and changed the gender later... Doesn't make him transgender... Just a fuking transvestite...

And before the sjw's get all up in arms

transˈvesˌtīt,tranzˈvesˌtīt/S ubmit
noun: transvestite; plural noun: transvestites
a person, typically a man, who derives pleasure from dressing in clothes primarily associated with the opposite sex.
