The Tomgirl Saga is the eighteenth saga in Chris's life. Allegedly, after it was suggested to him that he get in touch with his feminine side, Chris became a "tomgirl", dressing in women's clothes and putting on makeup. The Calling Out videos are generally included as part of this saga, as Chris is in tomgirl regalia in those videos.
It's possible that Chris came up with the term from Eddie Izzard's Dress to Kill, where he says that being a transvestite is the same as being a male tomboy, though this is mere conjecture. What is fact, however, is that Chris makes for a deeply unconvincing female impersonator.
—Chris, Jackie email, May 6 2011
According to an email Chris sent to Jackie on 26 March 2011, Chris started cross-dressing at the beginning of that month. At the end of that month Chris changed his PSN quote to "I am Tomgirl". This was the first sign of the Tomgirl Saga, and caused much speculation among people following Chris. What exactly this quote meant, however, would not be answered until the end of April.
On 29 April, the Tomgirl Pictures were released by Surfshack Tito. In them, Chris is dressed in woman's clothing, posing in what he believes are seductive positions. This marked the official beginning of the Tomgirl Saga, as well as finally revealing what his previous PSN quote meant. For some reason, Chris removed the Tomgirl PSN quote immediately after PSN came back online after a month of inactivity, possibly due to receiving attention from trolls.
Barb was not happy, making negative remarks, such as, "do not wear eye shadow," "you look like a prostitute," "lipstick makes you look like a hooker," "you're turning into a gay," "what are you piercing next?" and "what's next, you wearing a skirt and high heels?" Predictably, Chris reacted to this negative criticism by completely disregarding it and complaining about Barb.
Tomboys and Tomgirls of Virginia
In late May, Chris discovered the Tomboys And Tomgirls of Virginia forum. The forum was dedicated to tomboys and tomgirls living in Virginia who wish to discuss their lives. Chris joined under the username Kookydashy, marking a midpoint in the saga.
In the posts Chris made, he mostly talked about himself and his tomgirl antics. Chris revealed that he had come out to his parents, only to receive insults from them. Barb, in particular, has kept complaining about his new attire, and Bob, according to Chris, "threw the damned fag card" at him. Chris also recounts a story in which he went to the lady's restroom because he "started feeling discomfort in using the Men's restroom." Despite a jerkop who caught him and yelled at him, Chris proceeded to ignore him and is presumably using the ladies' room to this day.
Later posts Chris made excessive mention of being trolled online, at which point it became obvious that KookyDashy was Chris. According to Chris, socializing online makes people more autistic, and people should socialize offline. The irony of posting this on an online social forum was apparently lost. Chris also became paranoid of being trolled even on these forums, leading him to accuse a tomboy looking for a tomgirl of being a troll. For a month, Chris didn't post at the forums.
After that month, Thorg discovered the Tomboys and Tomgirls of Virginia forum, and made an article about it on the CWCki. Chris noticed this quickly, and alerted his fellow tomboys and tomgirls a day later. Naturally, this also entailed him admitting that he is Christian Weston Chandler. Chris complained about the trolls, and said that he is not a bad person, despite what the CWCki said. The other posters promised to help Chris defeat the trolls. The forums became defunct shortly afterwards.
In August, Chris made his return to YouTube. After consorting with his fellow tomboys and tomgirls, he claimed to have obtained dox on all of his trolls. From here, Chris makes a series of videos calling out various trolls.
Chris first calls out Surfshack Tito, and demands that he 1) admit to hacking PlayStation Network, 2) apologize to the Wallflower and her family, 3) send Chris $1,000, 4) delete all of his pages from the CWCki, and 5) apologize to Chris. Surfshack Tito replied a few days later, meeting Chris's demands.
The next troll called out was Thorg. Chris demands that he 1) put up a billboard in NYC declaring that Chris is straight, 2) delete all of his pages from the CWCki, and 3) apologize to Chris. Unlike Tito, Thorg did not take Chris seriously. Chris re-calls out Thorg, and eventually unmasks him as Jeremy Slonwhite, a fat, nerdy atheist living in Canada.
Chris then calls out Jack Thaddeus, and simply demands that he apologize to Chris. However, Jack Thaddeus unmasked himself, revealing that he is ADF, another lolcow. Chris responds by mocking him and his communist views.
Later, Chris calls out Alec Benson Leary, and demands that he apologize to Chris. Alec Benson Leary did not respond to Chris's Calling Out video, so Chris unmasked him as Christopher Paul Whitney, a fat man who eats food on Youtube.
Finally, Chris called out BlueSpike, and demanded that he 1) stop people from prank calling him and screaming "JULAY", and 2) apologize to Chris. BlueSpike did not respond, but Chris did not unmask him because tragedy had hit Chris's family.
On 6 September 2011, Bob passed away from heart failure. This brought the public events of Tomgirl Saga to an abrupt hiatus, as Chris was in mourning and apparently too depressed to make more videos. BlueSpike's deadline to respond to Chris passed without Chris unmasking him. In the few years after that Chris had a very minimal online presence, and there were only a few more photos of him in tomgirl attire leaked.
Bob's passing, however it may have affected Chris, did not stop him from being a tomgirl; 3 years later, according to his latest OkCupid profile, he stated "I would cross dress more often if my mother was not against me doing it (panties and bra included, but wear them anyway)."
On 14 August 2014, Chris revealed via Facebook that he is a self-described "Tomgirl, Intersex of Female Soul with Male Body, and a Tranny Cross-Dresser", claiming shortly afterward to be a lesbian in a male body. He also proclaimed that he is a supporter of "LBT" rights, which seems to have neatly coincided with the advent of his professed status as a transsexual person. His omission of the "G" (Gay) was attacked by Kim, in the face of which Chris admitted that the "G.M.s" were "fortunate" to be "on the boat", suggesting that he despises gay men as much as ever.
Evidence of legitimate transsexualism
Unclear. Transsexuality is fundamentally a part of gender dysphoria, a neurological condition wherein the affected individual believes that their gender identity does not correspond with their biological sex. Chris has shown unclear symptoms; the bras for instance can easily be chalked up to Chris's loathing of men and their chests. His hatred of all pickles rather than just his own suggests issues about sexual insecurity rather than gender insecurity, and his total non-acceptance of LGBT people until now is another nail in the coffin - he is still terrified of being considered a homo, and still refuses to acknowledge gay men (as seen above in his "LBT" rant) or other MtF transsexuals. In May 2015, Chris began a largely ineffectual form of hormone treatment, conceivably because he was assessed for proper hormone replacement therapy and deemed ineligible, possibly because of his health status. It also costs a great deal of money to get hormone therapy, and Chris's tugboat won't cover it on top of the expenses it already does.
However, gender dysphoria could also explain a lot of Chris's past behavior; an example being Chris's insecurity in failing to live up to cultural perceptions of masculinity. His tendency to exaggerate or overcompensate for his fragile masculinity could be caused by an internal realisation that his intellectual gender does not match his biological sex. Additionally, Chris is known for his pathological hatred of change - unless the change is beneficial or positive for him. To assume Chris "became" trans purely for the quest for china is fairly extreme, as suddenly identifying by another gender identity is generally a life-changing event for anybody, and Chris has shown that he is incapable of substantially changing himself even with the promise of a relationship laid in front of him.
Chris's Mixed Messages and Possible Reasons for the Tomgirl Turn
Although cross-dressing among gay men ("doing drag") is deliberately over-the-top and purely for comedic purposes, Chris in his homophobia would almost certainly consider it to be a form of sexual expression - and thus, wearing women's clothing would damn one as a homo. This created much confusion among white knights and trolls alike, as Chris has long preached against any sort of behavior that might "turn people homo", or cast any aspersions on his purported heterosexuality. There are a few theories as to why he turned Tomgirl, and how he justifies it to himself:
- Given that he constantly insists that he appeals to all sexualities of women now, it may be that he just wanted to broaden the demographic of women who would be attracted to him. This is most likely the case.
- As Clyde Cash pointed out, it could be a latent desire he's been in denial over for years and only now beginning to embrace.
- Some suggested that he received advice about "getting in touch with his feminine side" and Chris took it literally. This is what happened according to Chris, which means nothing since he lies to suit himself constantly.
- As evidenced by his past behavior towards women and his recent bragging about using the female restroom, he could be doing it as an excuse to peep on women using them. In a similar vein, he would also be avoiding using the male restroom, an all-pickle environment which probably causes a lot of stress.
- It could be a bizarre, roundabout solution to the cognitive dissonance that no doubt comes with Chris's increasingly often demonstrated hatred of his own sex. This as a solution would allow him to maintain his insane loathing of men, and not admit it is motivated by jealousy.
- Also, as shown by his very strange, childish, and lazy fantasy of what married life would be like for him, Chris obviously does not want to have to be the spouse who provides for the family. It's possible that Chris realized that it's usually the man who has a job, and the woman stays to look after the home,raise any possible children and cook. As such, Chris may have decided to say he was trans so he could have an excuse to not work (another one, that is). This wouldn't make much sense, since the breadwinning man would be absent, except that Chris absolutely expects the real woman in the relationship to work just as hard as the man would.
- This may be a last ditch effort to deny his homosexuality. In Mumble 1 and Sonichu 9, Chris explicitly states that he would rather go through a painful sex change than be gay. Given the risks he's taking to transition, it's very possible that he'd rather die than come out of the closet.
